Lexington police Officer Clifton Grimm was just trying to make his life easier when he programmed an iPhone application to put an interactive list of Kentucky laws at his fingertips.

“I just figured I’ll just make it for myself, and if it’s halfway useful, that’s cool,” Grimm said.

Instead, the app, called KY UORS on the iPhone app store, has proven to be a hit.

In a little less than a year on the market, the $1.99 application has been downloaded by about 1,000 people statewide, including officers, state troopers, attorneys and social workers.
