Well, this is kind of sick.
For 99 cents, the same price as a pack of Sweet Tarts, iPhone users can purchase access to a live stream of the Casey Anthony murder trial. Personally, we'd go with the candy.
For those of you wondering if the app is worth your time, the Florida trial involves a mother who's been accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, and hiding her body in a car trunk. She's been charged with first degree murder.
Here's what the company behind the app, Progressive Lifestyles, had to say about its success earlier today:
"Crazy day in court and a crazy day for downloads."
"So an hour into thursday there are 100 Casey Trial LIVE Streaming iPhone iPad iPod app downloads! this is crazy!"
We're sure this will appeal to some people, but it's a bit disturbing that a company is profiting off of this horrific situation. The death of a 2-year-old should NOT be the beginning of a new business venture.
If you need entertainment on your iPhone, why don't you play some Angry Birds or Words with Friends or something?
Do U approve of the Casey Anthony trial live stream app?
