There is a wide variety of mobile applications that lawyers and legal firms can use to save time and improve productivity. All you need to do is install the application on your smart phone or tablet and then test drive it. Of course, the great thing about trying out free applications is the fact that they’re free! If they don’t help you, you can easily remove them from your mobile minus any fuss or cost. If you’ve been searching for some mobile applications that could help you organise your schedule, files and other important data, here are some that may interest you:
• Mobile Day
Mobile Day is a conference call application that allows you to make a conference call easily and efficiently. There is no need to enter contact details each time you need to make a call. Mobile Day scans your calendar for any scheduled conference calls, sends you a reminder, and allows you to call with just one touch.
• LinkedIn Card Munch
LinkedIn Card Munch is a great tool for someone who networks. Each time someone hands you a business card, take a picture of it and it will be automatically turned into a ‘contact’ on your mobile device. No need to worry about storing a plethora of business cards ever again.
• Genius Scan
Need to scan, fax and send documents? Genius Scan can help you there. While this app won’t let you scan or fax documents, it does allow you to take a picture of the document and send it to your recipient as a single PDF file.
Dropbox is a free application that allows you to store and share files conveniently. You can access all of your downloaded files anytime and anywhere. You can also access the files on your PC at work or on your mobile. And, you can share files with anyone via email without even opening up your email account.
