Amanda Baggett’s Jax Daily Record Article on Legal Apps for Productivity:

By Amanda Baggett, member of The Jacksonville Bar Association

It’s no secret that modern technology has profoundly changed the landscape of many professions, and the legal field is no exception.

The age of technology is a blessing and a curse for lawyers. While smartphones make it convenient to timely respond to a client’s email from the carpool line and the dentist’s office, they also can be a burden by constantly intruding on our personal lives with work-related calls, emails and notifications.

One of the most talked about New Year’s resolutions and Lenten vows was spending less time tethered to smartphones.

Yet, maybe it’s not the smartphones themselves that are the problem.

Not all apps are productivity killers. There are lots of apps that can help fulfill your iPhone addiction without depleting your productivity.

So, the next time you are tempted to scroll through mind-numbing status updates, check out one of these cool apps instead. These are all iOS apps, but some have also been developed for Android. They include:
