Perhaps you’ve heard of this one before: “there’s an app for that” is the tagline Apple and basically everyone on the internet have been using since the App Store’s launch in 2008 to describe the app-focused nature of the iPhone. Lost in the traffic? There’s an app for that. Gotta upload an image to show off to your friends on Twitter? There’s an app for that. And so on.
Now the tagline is Apple’s trademark, website Trademarkia reports. Filed by Apple in December 2009, the trademark covers “Retail store services featuring computer software provided via the Internet and other computer and electronic communication networks; retail store services featuring computer software for use on handheld mobile digital electronic devices and other consumer electronics” and is filed under the Advertising category.
