I will be highlighting Apps for Android and IPad/IPhone in the blawg. I have previously blogged about IPad Apps for law students and lawyers.(New IPad Blog, 07/20/2011/, Top IPad Apps for Lawyers 07/07/2011) Here are two Apps for Android phone and tablet users.
The first App is OyezToday (http://oyeztoday.com/). This App tracks the current business of the U.S. Supreme Court in the form of abstracts in all cases granted review. There download information states that, “OYEZTODAY provides: easy-to-grasp abstracts for every case granted review, timely and searchable audio of oral arguments & transcripts, and up-to-date summaries of the Court’s most recent decisions including the Court’s full opinions.”
The second App is PocketJustice , also from Oyez. This App focuses on the Supreme Court’s decisions and recordings of arguments. The free version provides, “… abstracts, voting data, searchable arguments & transcripts, and opinions in the top 100 most frequently employed cases found in constitutional law casebooks. There is a paid version that covers the entire corpus of over 600 cases”.
These Apps are available from the Android market place. They are also available for iPhone/iPad at the App Store with additional features. Law is going mobile and is becoming accessible from anywhere, see if these Apps fit into your legal environment. [DEL]
