Brett Burney makes his living helping lawyers make the most of technology in their law practices. He is also a former chair of ABA TECHSHOW, very smart, and an all-around nice guy. He recently launched a new podcast called the Apps in Law Podcast in which he interviews lawyers and other legal professionals about one of their favorite apps. Each episode is short, focused, and full of great information. For any iPhone J.D. reader who enjoys listening to podcasts, this is a good one and I encourage you to subscribe.
I mention his new podcast today because I was a guest on Episode 4. It was hard to pick a single app to discuss — there are so many that I love! — but I selected 1Password because it is incredibly useful, a delight to use, and with all of the security issues that we read about in the news every day it is incredible important. (My review.) You can listen to Episode 4 in your web browser by clicking here. But I recommend that you instead subscribe to the podcast using your podcast player of choice. That way, you can hear all of the future episodes, and the three great episodes that have already aired:
- Episode 1: Ohio attorney Chad Burton discusses the Mail app.
- Episode 2: Maryland attorney Neil Tyra discusses Daylite.
- Episode 3: Illinois attorney Nerino Petro discusses Trello.
By the way, if you are trying to select a great podcast app for the iPhone, I recommend Overcast. And if you want to learn more about Overcast, Brett just posted an entertaining video review of Overcast on his Apps in Law website. Not only does that video show you the great features of Overcast, it also provides a brief history of podcasts. So if any of you don't yet listen to podcasts, I recommend that you watch that video just to see what all of the buzz is about.
Thanks, Brett, for creating this podcast and for providing attorneys with such a valuable resource for learning about how to make the most of their iPhones.
