A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Navigating is pretty intuitive and sleek. Tablet version flips from landscape to portrait randomly.

Violence
Sex

Lots of sexual innuendo, provocative posing, and bikini-wearing.

Language

Occasional profanity, including "f--k," in videos. Radio station features frequent profanity, including the "N" word and "f--k."

Consumerism

Links to featured products go directly to stores. Lots of product placement and promotion.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Songs on radio station discuss drinking and drug use.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Kylie Jenner Official App is one of four Kardashian/Jenner apps (one for each sister) and gives teens a peek into the life of the youngest Kardashian sister. The free app requires a monthly subscription that auto-renews through the app store. Photos include lots of barely thong-covered bottoms, radio station songs and videos with some profanity and sexual innuendo, a live-stream video called "In Bed with Kim + Kylie," and a makeover video feature called "Help! My Face is F--ked!" Kylie features lots of her favorite thing -- fashion, makeup, decorating -- and links to stores to purchase them.

What's it about?

The KYLIE JENNER OFFICIAL APP gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the eponymous celebutante's life, from her outfit to live-stream video chats with her sisters and tours of her new home. Fans can see what Kylie does and what Kylie likes, and they can buy some of it via the store links included in the pictures. Teens navigate the pages by swiping side to side or scrolling. They can access a menu by swiping down and selecting specific features (Radio, Glam, Look, and Lyfe) to go directly to that content.

Is it any good?

This innovative magazine-meets-personal-peek-at-celebrity-lifestyle combination is brilliant while still being mind-numbingly shallow. The interface is elegant and sleek, and digital natives will find navigating it totally intuitive. There's quite a bit of content included: live-stream video from Kylie, video segments with Kylie's friends featuring makeovers and beauty tips, lots of peeks into Kylie's life with photos of her house, vacations, and nights out, and even a radio station so fans can listen to what Kylie is listening to. It's just all very superficial -- and just what Kardashian fans seem to want. Though the amount of content might justify the subscription, the quality -- a one-note body and beauty theme combined with unadulterated consumerism -- might prompt parents to talk with their teens about the overall messages.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how the "real life" shown through media, including social media, does not represent fully what life is like. Remind teens that these images and moments are chosen to present a certain image.

  • Talk to kids about how celebrities can use their influence in a variety of ways and what characteristics make for an adoration-worthy role model.
