Apple’s iPad, the tablet device that has become so ubiquitious that it’s now a proprietary eponym for tablets themselves (much to the chagrin of Microsoft), continues to make gains in law firm adoption. Of the 49% of respondents in ABA’s annual Legal Technology Survey who use a tablet for law-related tasks away from the office, 81% use iOS devices; and, as our ‘Apple in Law Offices‘ survey showed last year, in-firm iPad usage rose 10% over the previous year to 67%.
Why the continued growth in iPad usage? Part of the charm of the venerable devices lies with their versatility and ease of use, coupled with a growing desire on the part of law firms to go paperless. We’ve covered some of the multitude of use cases for law firm iPad use below to get you started.
