Android Apps of the Week for Lawyers 2/18/11

Image representing Evernote as depicted in Cru...Image via CrunchBaseAnother busy week comes down to the wire. I cannot tell you how much fun the Android phone is, both for business and for personal. I did promise to keep the app reviews business -centric, so here goes another installment.

1. App for Note Taking: Evernote. Evernote is a collection of software and services that allows users to collect, sort, tag and annotate notes and other miscellaneous information.The notes that you take with the Evernote app can be accessed from both your Android device and your computer. You can quickly add a text note, audio note, photo snapshot, or file upload to your library from any of your devices.
2.ThickButtons: I'm always amazed by the simplicity of the app brands, because if I have to explain
one like this, well you sir are a lost cause.     ThickButtons visibly enlarges the keys that the phone predicts you'll type next, so if you're typing the word "Annoying" and you get to the "o", it'll enlarge the letter "Y" (among other letters it thinks you can possibly hit next). The iPhone actually does this invisibly, but ThickButtons does this...visibly.

3. Cam Scanner: This one turnes your phone into a document scanner.  

I'm giving this one a try now. I've had decent success with it - if you like it - or not - let me know.

That's it for this week.
