Next week, on April 5 to be exact, I’m joining with Ben Schorr, Mark Unger, and Dan Pinnington, to present the 4×4 Challenge: Top Apps for Every Platform, at ABA Techshow 2013. This is going to be a fast-paced, show-and-tell presentation covering a lot of the top apps for Android, iOS, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry. As I’m almost finished with my flashy point of the program, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at my top five apps, in alphabetical order.
I really like this app for being able to prepare and take depositions. This is the “ying” to AgileLaw’s yang. We’ve had a small stall in the app updates (I think the developer is finishing finals), but no matter, this app rocks.
OfficeSuite Pro 7
My Tablet Wars paper says I love QuickOffice Pro. Sure QO is nice, but OfficeSuite Pro is awesome. Add on the dictionary/thesaurus and the font package, and you have a great way to create, review, and edit MS Office documents.
Unfortunately, this baby doesn’t make it into any of my materials. I don’t know why either, because whether on my tablet (rarely) or phone (frequently), CamScanner HD is a go-to app. In fact, I was at the courthouse today, checked out a file, and rather than paying for copying, “scanned” the case file into my phone and delivered the document to my assistant to save to a case.
I reviewed this app a long time ago, and it’s still one of my favorite apps. I forget about this app because it runs in the background. Here’s the premise: install the app, link it to your Google Calendar. That’s it. Now, every time you call out, or someone calls in, CallTrack records the number and the length of the conversation. I like the app because it helps reclaim some of my phone time for later billing.
ASTRO File Manager
Q: What’s the easiest/best way to manage files on my Android tablet/phone?
