The Kylie Jenner app is now the most downloaded app in iTunes and in the App Store, making Kylie Jenner top the popularity race against Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.

The 18-year old fashion and beauty icon turned to social media to thank her fans for their tremendous support. Kylie shared a snapshot of the chart on her Instagram account.

"I can't believe it. I love you guys. Can't wait to post more tomorrow," she said.

"The Kylie Jenner Official app gives Kylie's audience unprecedented and exclusive personal access to her life. Through the app, Kylie shares original and curated content, a personally programmed radio station, access to offline events, tutorials, will live stream with fans and much more. Kylie is giving her fans more access and is providing experiences through her app, which have never been offered before," stated in description page of the app.

According to Alaxic Smith, CEO of communly.com, a total of 891,340 users had already subscribed to the apps that were launched based on Kylie and the rest of the Kardashian and Kendall girls within the first 24 hours alone. The breakdown reveals that 74 percent of the total number goes to Kylie. Khloe Kardashian comes in second at 11 percent while Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner trailed behind with 9 percent and 6 percent respectively.

Speculations are saying that if the download trend goes on, the family could rake in an estimated $32 million in just 12 months.

The chart snapshot also reveals that the Kylie Jenner Official App is being followed by Pop the Lock (number 2), Facebook Messenger (number 3), Facebook (number 4) and Instagram (number 5).

"MY APP HAS LAUNCHED!!!," said Kylie in a post at Instagram. "Spent so much time on TheKylieJenner.com so you guys can have new content everyday! The link is in my bio to download the APP for easy access on your phone!!!!!:) my very own app!! I'm thinking of new stuff everyday to share with you guys. Got some fun videos up right now."

While the app can be downloaded under a free trial for 7 days, it thus charges $2.99 a month once the free trial period is over. One user has warned that even though the sign up is free, the user's credit card details are still required prior to accessing the free trial.
