Steph Curry’s Emoji App Just Destroyed Kim K’s Kimoji in 24 Hours
Whoa! We were genuinely surprised at how much we like Kim K’s new Kimoji update, and we really thought it would be the be-all-and-end-all of emoji keyboards for now. Well, we were wrong, and we didn’t even know how wrong we were. While Kim was dropping her new Kimoji update, Golden State Warriors basketball star Steph Curry quietly released his own emoji keyboard, and by this morning, it became the number one app on iTunes, beating out Kim and perennial favorite Minecraft (for mobile).
Featuring everything from GIFs of the star dribbling a basketball to his adorable, show-stealing daughter Riley, the Stephmoji app surprised everyone by coming out at the same time as Kim’s and surpassing sales.

While we were surprised at first, Curry’s got a huge social following, with over six million Twitter followers, 11 million on Insta and another five milly on Facebook, and he’s decidedly less hated than Kim K can be via social channels. While Kim’s not going to get a ton of sports lovers downloading her keyboard, Steph’s got bball fans, social media junkies and even people who aren’t into sports because he’s just so cool.
