iPhone J.D. blogger Jeff Richardson loves the new iPhone (surprise) along with PDF and transcript-comparison apps, and a super charger:

• The iPhone 5s is the latest version of Apple’s flagship product. I think most lawyers will love it, and here are the reasons why.

iAnnotate by Branchfire is one of the most powerful apps you can use to edit PDF files on an iPad.

• A recent update to TranscriptPad lets you run a report based on multiple transcripts so you can, for example, quickly see what every witness in the case had to say that pertains to comparative fault.

• Kensington’s new AbsolutePower 4.2 Dual Fast Charge for Tablets is a USB power adapter that can provide a full, fast charge to two iPads (or iPhones) at the same time, making it ideal for when you travel.

The Droid Lawyer blogger Jeffrey Taylor clues in new Android users, along with a notable app for notes:

• A lot of attorneys are getting new Android devices, whether they’re tablets or smartphones. I created a series of introductory course for new Android users. Here’s the most recent lesson.

• I’m not much of a note-taker, at least when it comes to lists and getting things done. However, I do use Google Keep to clip websites, record audio, and make short notes and to-do lists. New updates make Google Keep more usable, and possibly an Evernote competitor. Check out my post on Google Keep.
