Billionth App downloaded from iTunes store


Only nine months after Apple opened the App Store to let people download applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch, Apple reports that customers have downloaded one billion apps.  Connor Mulcahey, a 13 year-old kid who downloaded a free game app, will receive a $10,000 iTunes® gift card, an iPod® touch, a Time Capsule® and a MacBook® Pro.  Pretty nice stuff.

Although many of the downloaded apps are free, Apple receives 30% of the price of all paid apps.  There are 35,000 apps available at the App Store, and everyone I know who owns an iPhone, including me, struggles with App Store addiction.  Would someone organize a 12-step program, please?

This summer iPhone OS 3.0 will be released, and it will allow developers to do even more creative things.  One of those more creative things will be the ability to copy and paste, just decades after Apple invented the concept.

I use a variety of apps that weren’t designed specifically for lawyers.  Apps which are more lawyer-specific include the ABA Journal, an app with lawyer jokes, and a free copy of the Constitution.  I haven’t seen any must-have apps for lawyers, unless you’re a lawyer who bills your time by the hour.  If that includes you, they have some nice time-keeping apps you may find interesting.

Attorney Advertising

No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers. The hiring of a law firm is a serious decision that should not be based on advertising alone.
