As you no doubt noticed, I have not blogged in a while. The reasons aren’t really important, but they include work and general indecision on what to blog about. I could have written about Escobedo, Loser Pays, Mandatory arbitration, or a host of other legal issues which have generally sickened me as to the state of law and accountability in Texas, but just decided to take a break and come back with a rant on these topics next time. During my break I became one of those Ipad people. I, of course justified it by stating how it would make me more productive, it would be easier to travel, etc. etc. I sent out e-mails asking for favorite apps for work and fun and then loaded them on my trusty Ipad2. Now I have dropbox, iannotate, goodreader, blackjack, facebook, etc. all loaded and ready, but still don’t understand how they all work. I am writing this blog on my laptop as I am nowhere near as fast on the Ipad. So here are my question and request: What is your favorite apps, why, what the heck do they do and how do you work them? I would really appreciate it if each reader could send at least one suggestion, even it is already mentioned.
I, too, am in the process of learning more about the iPad. The iPhone JD Blog posted recently about a book (“iPad at Work” by David Sparks) that may help us both. By the way, the blog discusses other apps that may be of use to lawyers. A recent entry discussed a mediation app, “Settled” that I have used. Anyway, here is the link to the blog: iphonejd.com. Now to your question: Fastcase is an app I use often at home to read cases (free legal research).
