FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - There's no app for that.

Police in Central California report a student's iPhone blocked a bullet during an armed robbery near Fresno State.

Gomez says the suspect grabbed the student's computer bag and fired one shot.

The bullet shattered the iPhone in the victim's pants pocket.

The student wasn't hurt and police are still looking for the robber.
