Hot-selling Casey Anthony Trial apps confirm that everyone sucks

Casey Anthony iPhone App
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.

    Wow that’s sick. Anyone know roughly how many sales you need to have to make it into the top 100?

    More than 5 a day. Because that’s how well my app has sold the past two days, and it’s not in the top 100.

    By the way, my game is totally awesome and you should definitely pick it up while its just $0.99. Based on the Chansey Egg Emergency minigame from Pokémon Stadium, it’s my Egg Drop!, for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Slick graphics. Lots of fun. Catching eggs. Dodging bombs. Some of the bombs follow you. Some of the eggs avoid you. The eggs hatch into birds. The birds are pretty. Get highscores. Good, clean, fun. Go buy it:

    A little more on the topic of the original post, it doesn’t surprise me that something like this sells. Have you seen the covers of the magazines in line at your supermarket? It’s all sensitive crap like this that nobody should be minding, but they are anyways.

    Thanks, Doc, I’ll send you a promo code so you can evaluate it as a game that doesn’t suck… In a later version, I have a few features to add before it’s ready for such a thorough evaluation.

  4. It’s kind of sad that somebody would spend a dollar on an app that basically does the same thing that clicking on any news site would do. I mean, they are all saturating us with Casey Anthony news every time I turn on the TV or open up a news site in my browser. Oh well, this makes sense if you consider that every single Will Smith movie, no matter how bad it is, always makes hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Thanks. I wouldn’t even have known what the trial was about if I hadn’t read this article. Here I am, minding my own business, avoiding any and all exposure to news media to avoid just such tales of horror… What happens? They find me instead. Grumble, grumble, mutter, cuss, spit. Well, back to my happy, naive, apple-centric world…
