No matter how you look at it, lists are essential to the various aspects of our everyday life. Whether you're simply jotting down a few tasks to be completed or are writing a complete guide for the grocery shopper in your family, lists are unavoidable. For the less technology oriented, Shot Note brings handwritten to handheld with its easy-to-use iPhone app used in conjunction with the physical stationary from company Ampad.
ABC has released initial statistics on the performance of their iPad app, and the results are promising. The ABC Player [App Store, Free] has been downloaded 205,000 times since it's release just ten days ago, and the app has delivered 650,000 television episodes during that time.
While the app and its content are free, episodes are occasionally interrupted with short 30 second ads. ABC has stated these ads have already been watched several million times. Additionally, the app provides links to buy the TV show in iTunes. While it is still very early in the game, these features appear to be capable of producing significant revenue for the network, while also providing users with a simple and easy way to watch their favorite television content.
