"There's an App for That" work anecdote

Apple Awarded Trademark for "There's an App for That" [Mashable headline/link]. This made me think of a recent patient interaction that cracked me up. My patient gazed up at his empty IV bag and said, "How many cups is that?" I was on my 11th hour of my third shift in a row, so I didn't get very far into thinking through it other than "it's about a quart, which is..." and faltered. My patient said, "Isn't there an app for that? Haw haw haw."

I brightened. "Yeah." I whipped out my iPhone, fired up ConvertBot [iTunes link; $1.99], and answered his question. So then he whipped out HIS iPhone and bought ConvertBot. I think we bonded.
