It TMs possible that app is the one he used.I know I TMm all about living my life through the apps available to me through iTunes, but I don TMt plan on living an illegal life through them.I TMm not sure what would possess someone to try to pull a person over using an app, but Welch has now been charged with impersonating a police officer.What apps have you found that you question why they exist? There are plenty out there. I hate the app my husband has that is just a gun shot noise when you shake the iPhone. I don TMt see the point, but at the same time, I have an App that says shut up and another that says you TMre fired when you tap the screen. I TMm sure those are on some lists of why would those even exist?!? apps.
