It's been a big week in the world of the iPhone and iPad thanks to Apple's preview of iOS 7 earlier this week. The more I look at the photographs and videos related by Apple on iOS 7, the more that I like the new look and the opportunities that the new iOS gives Apple for the future. And now, the news of note from the past week:
- New York lawyer and TechnoLawyer publisher Neil Squillante reviews Penultimate, an iPad note-taking app. My favorite app for taking notes on an iPad is still GoodNotes, but I know that there are many other good apps out there.
- New York lawyer Nicole Black tweeted a link to a list of 50 iOS 7 features by Josh Smith of GottaBe Mobile. It's a pretty good list of all of the new features.
- California attorney David Sparks tweeted a link to a great post by Steven Sommer in which he shows you how to create an iPhone password that is longer than four numbers but still uses only numbers and therefore uses a number pad, not a keyboard, to enter the password.
- The iPad app iAnnotate PDF, which you can use to read and annotate PDF files, was updated to version 2.5 this month, adding the ability to auto-sync documents to cloud storage services.
- The WestlawNext iPad app was updated this month to version 2.9, adding an improved history tab (including the history of documents you printed from the iPad), the ability to browse using the West Key Number System, and the ability to view and annotate user uploaded documents.
- The Lexis Advance HD iPad app was updated this month to version 3.8, adding the ability to browse through a statute or treatise, the ability to save multiple documents to an email or to a folder, and the ability to print on an iPad-compatible printer.
- The funny folks at Scoopertino (a humor site I discussed here) offer their own live blog (ahem) of the Apple announcements at WWDC this week.
- And finally, yesterday Apple posted the following video called Making a difference. One app at a time. It shows off some iPad apps that truly change people lives. The video is almost 10 minutes long, but it is powerful and inspirational. Worth watching:
