Like Counter Pro — available today on the App Store — has one purpose: to help retailers boast about their number of Facebook likes. It does this by running a live “Like” counter on one or more iPads placed inside the store itself.

I can’t be the only one that thinks that this will lead to a few stolen tablets, right? I don’t exactly live in a high-crime area, but I can’t imagine an iPad sitting on a random store shelf lasting more than a day before someone just carries it out with them. Maybe I’m not giving humanity enough credit, or maybe the iPad in the promotional image is being secured by some sort of unbreakable superglue bond, but it sure looks like a lonely, vulnerable tablet to me.
