6 Top Document Management Smartphone Apps for Paralegals

There are several smartphone/tablet apps on the market that can help paralegals be more productive, especially when "on the go" or during a busy trial.   Managing documents from any location is becoming easier while the use of these apps have become mainstream. Here are some great applications that can help any paralegal with a smartphone or tablet accomplish any document related task.



scanR
Simply take a picture, using your cameraphone, of whatever document you need to scan or fax and ScanR will convert it to a PDF or text file for you to use. How simple is that? Documents can then be saved to the smartphone or sent out in an email. 

iAnnotate PDF
Need to edit that document you just scanned?  iAnnotate lets you choose from the pen, highlighter, typewriter, stamp, straight-line, note, underline, strikeout, photo, voice recording, and date stamp tools to make needed changes. Copy and paste annotations, even from one document to the next. 


Google Docs
Google Docs is a free Web-based application in which documents and spreadsheets can be created, edited and stored online. Files can be accessed from any computer with an Internetconnection and a full-featured Web browser . Google Docs is a part of a comprehensive package of online applications offered by and associated with Google .

RightSignature
This application helps you get forms filled out and get the signatures you need to finalize any document. You can also use your existing PDF's to convert into forms and create a signature block. Forms can also be emailed out to other parties for signature right from the app.  

LogMeIn
Stuck in court but need to get to your desktop at the office? Use this app to securely access your desktop, tablet, the cloud, etc. from anywhere.  Perfect for getting any information you need from multiple locations. You can transfer files between devices without email or flash drives, print documents from a remote computer to a local printer or watch videos in HD and listen to remote audio. 

Personally, I use scanR regularly and Google Docs for most of my editing, etc.  I find both apps to be very reliable and very fast.  Most of these apps have both android and iPhone downloads available.  Any smartphone application that can save me time is very valuable, and I'm sure most paralegals feel the same.
