    I've only seen it used on the outside edges before, it's called corner bead. Just my opinion, hope it helps, I suppose it depends on the building codes, but I haven't heard of it being required on the inside corner.
    The purpose of the corner bead is to give a nice straight corner, and also to protect the corner from bumps, etc.
    No need to use it on an inside corner, but I suppose if you felt it made it easier, it wouldn't hurt. I would think it might be hard to keep the edges straight though.
