AUSTIN (KXAN) - With an iFart app, a Paranormal State EMF Meter app, an iBeerapp and even
Now, the iLeslie app has Austinites excited to getnuggets of wisdom from a local icon. Apple describes the iLeslieapp as "Leslie Cochran is the most famous homeless transvestite inAustin Texas. The iLeslie application is a select collection offunny short sayings by Leslie as well as two longer interviews witha special message from Leslie."
"[Leslie] was just joking about how he will contact [Apple] soonto get his 'cut,'" said Debbie Russell, president of the Austinchapter of the ACLU and good friend of Leslie.
Unfortunately, right below the description on Apple's Web site,it says explicitly, "The App Store does not allow an application to say that aportion of profits are given to a person or entity in theapplication description."
So, it seems that Leslie will be watching as his inspirationalphrases are quoting across the country - or at least acrossI-35.
"[Apple] didn't get [Leslie's] permission, but he's not somebodythat's concerned about his image so much that he would have aproblem with it," said Russell.
It is a good thing Leslie is such a great sport.
