Developer Jerry Beers has a suite of 15 $1 apps in the iTunes Store along the lines of “Call Mike” — a home screen speed dialer designed for calling someone named Mike. I.e. each of the 15 apps is hard-coded with a different first name. Don’t worry, there’s also “Call Michael”, in case Mike is too casual. No “Call John” or “Call Amy” yet, so it looks like our family is out of luck.
This is not a joke. (Thanks to DF reader Jeff Feng.)
