Law firms across the nation are now using iPads on a daily basis to make their jobs easier. Our society is becoming increasingly more mobile. Some people can even do most of their business right from a smartphone. The iPad has changed the way folks are doing business and nowhere is that more true than in the courtroom. This article is going to teach you about the top four iPad apps that all lawyers should be using.
Dropbox is not only one of the best apps for lawyers; it is one of the best apps ever made. Dropbox is a file sharing system that is free to use and only requires an email address to obtain an account. You can share photos, videos, and documents in any kind of format with Dropbox. Files can be shared in your account from a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Instead of carrying stacks of papers into court, you can access all of your documents right on your iPad with the Dropbox app. Law firms can even make a firm account to allow for lawyers in the firm to easily share documents with one another.
Downloading the Fastcase application is a no-brainer for any practicing attorney. Fastcase provides the largest law library and legal research system on any free iPad app. The app is more than just a research tool, it uses smart technology to help find what you specifically are looking for based on your history. Fastcase is also full of customizable features, allowing you to have your own customized legal research library with you on your iPad at all times.
Many apps that lawyers use were designed for the public and then found to be useful in the legal field. TrialPad is not one of those apps at all. It was designed specifically for lawyers to use in the courtroom. TrialPad is the perfect case organizer and presenter. It lets you easily organize documents, play videos, annotate and zoom in on evidence, and more. TrialPad is one of the most complete and high tech presentation systems designed for lawyers and it is available right on your iPad.
GoodReader is one of the most useful apps for all types of lawyers out there. The app lets you annotate and mark-up documents right on your iPad. You can then save the work that you have done in the document and email it right from your device. This app is even better for people who use Dropbox because you can annotate and customize all of the documents you have in your Dropbox account with it. GoodReader is easy to use and has tools for highlighting, underlining, freehand drawings, taking side notes, and more.
