iPad in the Law Office (access required)

I was a latecomer to the iPad game, and purchased my first tablet computer during a Black Friday sale last year. I won't say that it's become indispensable -- my laptop is still the most useful piece of technology I own. However, it has been winning me over slowly. I'm looking forward to being able to ...


  1. Check out TabLit: Trial Notebook for your productivity app. It’s still in its infancy (v1.0.1), but we have a lot of updates planned over the next 6 months. Love to hear what you think!

  2. Get a protective cover if you’re going to let the kids use it. You need it for work more than they need cartoons!

  3. Stick with Evernote. It took me a while to “burn” it into my brain. The clincher was putting Evernote on my home PC and my work PC, as well as on my iPad and my iPhone. They automatically sync up with each other, so it doesn’t matter where I am, or on what computer, I always have my notes with me. Secondarily, I use SoundNote, which I use to record (audio) my meetings. A nice feature is that as I type notes, it synchs with that place in the recording. That way, I can click on a typed note, and the audio recording jumps right to that spot and starts playing. Zite is my all time iPad “newsmagazine”. It’s amazing how it learns your interests and keep feeding you what you want. I prefer that over Flipboard, because Flipboard is more oriented to your social media (Facebook, Twitter) world, which I don’t use as much. My all time favorite daily app, though, is History Channel’s Civil War Today.
