Creators and fans of Kick are in a celebratory mood after the launch of the streaming platform’s mobile app. As correctly predicted by gambling streamer Trainwreck last week, the Stake-backed brand’s app went live over the weekend.
The Kick app launched Sunday, with Kick.com sharing the news via Twitter:
Creators and fans expressed mostly excitement and optimism over the launch. Kick creator and streamer @LogiOnKick tweeted: “Big props to the dev team that worked tirelessly to get this done! Just amazing!”
Trainwreck — part of the development team that worked on the Kick mobile creator programme — added something extra to the launch buzz. The Arizonian took to Twitter in teaser campaign mode, hyping up six new Kick signings. When those content creators are revealed, Trainwreck claimed:
twitch and all of its puppet f*ck faces will be shook.”
Trainwreck, real name Tyler Niknam, is a figurehead in the mass migration of creators from Twitch to Kick. In the same Twitter sequence on Sunday, Trainwreck endorsed the Kick mobile app as “a natural environment for small-mid size creators to actually make a living for once.”
