Our lawyer-experts on legal apps weigh in with new recommendations. Read the full reviews by following the links.
The Droid Lawyer blogger Jeffrey Taylor recommends two books:
“Google Gmail and Calendar in One Hour for Lawyers is a 4 out of 5 stars book, and not just because I wrote the foreword. Google Apps for Business is my email, calendar and contacts management system of choice. It’s not a perfect system by any means, but in this book, Carole Levitt and Mark Rosch do a good job of explaining how to use Gmail and Google Calendar more effectively. If you’re a Google Apps beginner, you’ll want this book.
“And if you’re not too familiar with the hundreds of thousands of apps available in Google Play, Android Apps in One Hour for Lawyers is a good book for you. It’s a beginner’s guide to Android apps covering a number of different categories. Daniel J. Siegel has done a great job of sorting through the different ones and picking out his favorites. I didn’t agree with all of Dan’s choices, but you’ll find at least one or two apps you can get behind and love.”
The iPhone J.D. blogger Jeff Richardson recommends a way to handle password proliferation:
“Usernames and passwords. Ugh. We all have tons of them, and I suspect that we all struggle with ways to remember them. I’ve used lots of different systems over the years, ranging from a password-protected file on my iPhone to (I’m embarrassed to admit) a Post-it note stuck on my computer monitor. 1 Password, an app that works on your iPhone, iPad and computer to store, create and enter your passwords, quickly became one of my favorite apps after I reviewed it last year.”
