Hot-selling Casey Anthony Trial apps confirm that everyone sucks
I don’t know where you fall on the whole “mom’s (allegedly) killing their own kids debate, but I would hope you would find people trying to profit from it somewhat distasteful. That being said, apparently quite a few of you DON’T, as the app Casey Anthony Trial with LIVE STREAM, News, Videos, Audio, Documents and more 99¢ by Scott Manthey (who apparently jailbroke his iPhone, unless he is a cell provider) currently stands at #79 in Apple’s top 100 paid apps. That’s right, despite news outlets’ near constant round the clock coverage and regurgitating of the minutia surrounding the tragic Casey Anthony trial, some people appear to need to be told instantly if anything develops in the case, and developers are looking to cash in.
Oh, did I say developers, PLURAL? Yes. There’s more than one. Check out Casey Anthony Updates 99¢ by Hearst Television. I don’t know which app came first, but I admire that they flipped the “case file” photos to really set the apps apart.
Given that “people” are literally fighting each other for a seat at the trial, I would imagine that anyone feeling the need to buy one of these apps also needs to buy the other, lest some piece of news about this trial falls through the cracks. I would also imagine that if you’ve bought either of these apps, it would probably be a good idea to kill yourself, as odds are you are a horrible person who adds nothing to society.
