    Some guy named Jerry Beers has a bunch of stupid apps on the app store. There are like 100 of these apps that put a speed dial button for all different names "Call Andy", "Call Randy", "Call Dan", "Call Stan" one for each name. Worst of all? Each one is 99 cents.

    Know an Emily that you want on speed dial? Pay this jive turkey 99 cents and get "Call Emily".

    Does this idiot think we're all as stupid as he is? Couldn't he make an app that lets you make custom buttons for anyone you want? Guess that's what makes him evil.

    Anyone else seen this? Any reason this is useful that I'm not aware of?

    No you are 100% right.
    I wouldn't go so far as to call it a scam as it does what it says it will do, but I will say it's crap and a waste of money.

    This is just another example of crap flooding the app store.

    jesus marion barry! it doesn't even make a speed dial button on the main screen! You have to go to the application and wait for it to load the list? Why not just go to your contacts list? That's it, I'm ruining this guy's life.

    If you want to voice your complaints as well, contact him at support@jerrybeers.com. That's the email address where you can request custom names. Be sure to contact apple as well. I'm making it my mission to remove every one of his stupid apps from the app store on the grounds that people might accidentally click buy and lose their money.

    I guess he makes it so that you just purchase the one with your name on it?

    I think this guy is stupid, but it is partly apples fault, because with each app you can only have 1 app icon, he should have released this for JB

    Fear not, I am dealing with this scum. I dispatched an email to his secret base.

    Subject: I have a request...

    I request that you stop making these useless scam apps and remove the ones you have from the app store. Have you sold a single one of these? Was the only one you sold happen to be for the name Corky? Please, tell me what your plan is. Are you a scam artist, or do you think you actually have made something useful.

    Your nemesis, foil, and arbiter of all justice,

    Appman


    So, we'll see how this evildoer responds. You can rest easily now, knowing Appman is here to protect you.

    UP, UP, AND ABSCOND!
