That one missing LEGO – opening an NRL in your iOS email with LINK

Have you ever noticed that sometimes something very small can get in the way of completing something big and meaningful?

LEGO red 2 x 2

Like when you open a new Lego set and later discover that there are 1119 / 1120 pieces there, and of course the missing piece is the little tiny one that goes right in the middle, so you already spent two hours building half of the Star Wars set – but now you need to stop everything and drive 30 minutes each way to the Lego store to get that one tiny 2×2 block.

LINK 2.0 & iOS Apps at ABA TECHSHOW 2015

It flew by like lightning and now the carpet has literally been rolled up on the ABA TECHSHOW 2015. As always, the best part was the chance to network with lawyers who are not only tech savvy but tech enthusiasts and very generous with their knowledge. I attended the “60 iOS Apps in 60 Minutes Session”, which was deeply informative and lots of fun. A few of the top recommendations were:

TranscriptPad – Review and annotate transcripts. Per Jeff Richardson, @iPhoneJD, “at $90 worth twice the price.”
Overcast – Legal podcasts are a popular way to keep up with the latest in legal technology. Overcast is free for the basic version, but the $5 version is particularly productive. It removes the spaces between words and accelerates speed. Adriana Linares, @AdrianaL, especially likes that with Overcast you can send a colleague a link to a specific episode of a podcast.
Scannable by Evernote – An easy way to scan docs and business cards. Email docs or save to several apps including Evernote. Free. Recommended by Tom Mighell, @TomMighell.
Automatic App – This app provides data from your car, including mileage driven and service reminders. Joe Bahgat, @j0eybagodonuts, recommends it as it makes tracking business usage of your car a breeze. $99.95 for the adapter which plugs into your car’s diagnostic port.

There were 56 more apps, including Headspace, for mindfulness/meditation, and the Sonos speaker controller. Jeff Richardson will post them all this week on his blog, iPhoneJD.

LINK Email with File AttachMobile Helix made two major announcements. We released the new version of our mobile app for lawyers, LINK 2.0. LINK 2.0 integrates with WorkSite/FileSite and NetDocuments so that lawyers can securely access their docs and email them to clients and colleagues from smartphones and tablets. With LINK, when you send a colleague a doc which is stored in WorkSite she will receive a viewable .nrl attachment.

Two terrific new features, doc editing and file to WorkSite/FileSite will be released later this quarter.

NetDocuments announced their new Apps Marketplace at ABA TECHSHOW. We are thrilled to be one of their partners. Using their APIs we integrated LINK with NetDocuments so that NetDocuments users can access their docs, Outlook, SharePoint, and other apps from one secure app, LINK, without having to sign-on to each app. LINK’s efficient integration makes it easy to draft an Outlook email, attach a doc stored in NetDocuments, and send it to a client from your smartphone or tablet.

You can test drive LINK for free. Download LINK from the App Store here and follow the directions to “Take a Test Drive.” Try composing an email and attaching a file from SharePoint. If you have a NetDocuments account you can login into NetDocuments from the LINK app and access your own docs in LINK.

Take LINK for a drive. We would love to know what you think!

ABA TECHSHOW and the Mobile Lawyer

ABA Techshow 2015 Orange Logo

Lawyers, if “60 Apps in 60 Minutes” brings a smile to your face then you are likely a fan of the ABA TECHSHOW. “60 Apps” is one of the most popular sessions each April at the TECHSHOW. The iOS apps session will be standing room only. The apps session is followed by “60 Sites in 60 Minutes,” featuring the most useful websites for lawyers today.

This year TECHSHOW has 15 tracks with several geared toward the mobile lawyer, including “iPAD,” “Mobile,” and “Advanced IT.” TECHSHOW is especially valuable for lawyers in solo to medium-sized firms. If you are responsible for IT, litigation technology, or marketing, TECHSHOW is a wealth of information for you. TECHSHOW sessions will illustrate how to optimize today’s technology, for example:

  • Introducing Your iPad into Your iPractice
  • Litigate on the iPad
  • How Lawyers Can Effectively Engage in Social Media

The ABA TECHSHOW is a great place to meet new and long-time peers. The networking is as good as the content.

Our company, Mobile Helix, will be at ABA TECHSHOW again this year. Please stop by booth 113. We will be happy to show you our LINK mobile app for lawyers. LINK gives you access to your email and files in one encrypted app. With LINK, it’s easy to find a document, review it, and then email it to a client from your smartphone or tablet, no matter where you are located. LINK gives you a great mobile experience and lets you be productive even when you are not in the office.

See you in Chicago, April 16th to 18th!
