I am a fan of free software mostly because of the price. A recent blog post noted several that may be of some value in your practice. I am using:
1.Foxit Reader. A replacement for an Adobe reader. Faster and easier to use. Go here to find it.
The site says: "Are you tired of waiting for your PDF to load? Look no further, Foxit Software is the answer! Foxit Software specializes in core PDF technologies and provides a true and complete PDF solution. These affordable high quality solutions range from generic PDF desktop products to customized PDF applications and software development kits for various platforms."
2.Irfan View. In a nutshell, it is a simple graphic viewer. You get with it email, the ability to change color, and a thumbnail/preview option. Go here to find it.
3.Shorttext.com. While not freeware, it is a handy little webpage to use when you are on a public computer or another PC. The vanilla site informs:
ShortText.com is a simple tool to post text online, with minimum fuss. No sign ups, no sign in, just instant web presence for your information.
"Don't have a website? Don't want a blog? Want to share a piece of code...perhaps an article? Just paste your text below and click 'Create URL'! ShortText.com now supports direct linking to your images and video. "
I've used it as a reminder to myself and as a short note to a fellow lawyer.
Each is worth a go.
