We live in a mobile world and our smartphones and tablets are replacing the need for laptops and desktop computers. Even the most intensive and sophisticated applications such as graphics and video-editing software have been emulated by apps, available at a fraction of the traditional cost of these programs. These advanced graphics and video-editing apps might not have all of the bells and whistles some of the desktop versions have, but they are getting pretty close. Further, the interface and the mobility that the tablets and smartphones offer usually make up for the lack of some features. From a workflow perspective, many artists can use the apps to make quick edits, usually in collaboration with others. How can attorneys make use of currently available apps? This “Mobile Lawyer App Toolkit” suggests some basic apps to get started, surrounding the crux of practicing law—note-taking, legal research and drafting of documents.

There are a slew of apps that are specifically branded for the legal profession. On a high level, these include utilities focused on reference and legal research, case management, and litigation-specific tools for depositions and trial presentations. Then there are on-the-go efficiency tools, such as document reader and creation tools, note-taking apps, and storage and document-sharing options that can help the mobile lawyer to create drafts of work product and facilitate collaboration.
