Apple has received a trademark from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the phrase “There’s an app for that.” According to the filing, Apple first began using the phrase on January 26, 2009, likely in a television advertisement for the iPhone 3G. The trademark is filed in the category of Advertising, Business & Retail Services, Computer & Software Services & Scientific Services, and is described as “[r]etail 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.” Apple first filed for the trademark on December 4, 2009, or roughly a month after AT&T filed suit against Verizon over its “map for that” ads attacking both AT&T and the iPhone.
