My favorite iOS usability feature – AssistiveTouch

As someone who takes a LOT of screenshots – we make a mobile app – I am a fan of a set of features in iOS known as AssistiveTouch. With AssistiveTouch, you can create a virtual button on your screen. Tap the floating virtual button on your screen to accomplish one of 25 actions. For example, you can set the menu to take a Screenshot, go to Home, Pinch to zoom, Mute, or Speak Screen.

Screenshot, Home, or 23 other actions

Let’s start with my favorite usage. To take a screenshot on an iOS device, at least for a klutz like me, takes two hands. You must press the Home and Power buttons simultaneously. I must pick up the device to get the angles right to press both buttons with both hands. But when I use the AssistiveTouch virtual button then I simply use one finger to tap the virtual button, then tap Screenshot. The screenshot is snapped, and I’m on to the next screen.

Here’s what the button looks like on the screen.

Case Study: How Mobile Helix Used compareDocs SDK

How Mobile Helix used compareDocs SDK by DocsCorp to provide accurate document comparison in the LINK App for Lawyers

Mobile Helix, a legal technology solutions provider, used market-leading document comparison technology to meet user expectations for in-app comparison. Since integrating compareDocs SDK through a native .NET API, comparisons in the LINK App for Lawyers are faster and more accurate than ever.

The Business Need

  • Provide end-to-end workflows within the protected container of the encrypted LINK App
  • Improve the accuracy of in-app document comparison with new technology
  • Provide comparison on the server-side, rather than in the cloud
  • Partner with a leader in the legal technology industry

What happens when the document comparison in your app isn’t reliable?

We talked to DocsCorp about our integration of their high fidelity Word document comparison in our LINK app. We used their compareDocs SDK. It was a success for us and for our legal clients. This post is from their blog site.

Picture this: you are a lawyer who relies heavily on your devices to work outside of office hours. Perhaps you use the morning commute to fire off emails from your smartphone, or maybe you use your tablet on the couch after everyone has gone to bed and the house is finally quiet. While working on these devices, you use a secure app made especially for legal professionals. It has everything you need – access to your document management system, advanced search, Word editing and annotation, and document comparison.

Is Your Email Vulnerable? Ask the Chinese Military

I’m a current events junkie. I’ll admit it. And I work with law firms. Thus, my favorite podcast? “Stay Tuned with Preet.” Yes, this is Preet Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Check out an episode. Preet takes a few questions about the law at the beginning of each episode. Then he has a guest. Preet is not only smart, but surprisingly personable. It’s a fast-moving hour.

A recent guest was John P. Carlin, former Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division at the Department of Justice and Chief of Staff to Robert Mueller at the FBI. He is currently a partner with Morrison & Foerster. Carlin is an international cybersecurity expert.

One of the things which caught my attention in this episode was Carlin’s story of the US subsidiary of a German company whose data was stolen by hackers in the Chinese military. The company, SolarWorld, in Hillsboro, Oregon, made solar energy components.

How was the data stolen? Email. Carlin said, “Email. It is the least protected part of the system, usually. Not like Intellectual Property which is encrypted or where special measures are taken to protect it. They stole email traffic.”
