As the digital world moves more and more into our mobile devices, legal services, true to form, have been slow to move with it. While mobile device users are widely aware of shopping and news apps, a recent report sponsored by LegalShield found that far fewer are searching their mobile app stores for legal services or identity protection service apps.

Although 91 percent of those polled own a smartphone or tablet device, a mere 12 percent of 2,000 polled consumers report use of identity protection apps. Just 5 percent use legal services apps on their mobile devices.
