Good morning, iPad Lawyer Tribe!
The eighth video in my iPad Lawyer Micro-Training series is now up. In it I talk about the app I primarily use to write with while traveling.

On the Seminar front, tomorrow I will be appearing for a live event for Apple at the Fashion Island Briefing Room in Newport Beach from 6-8p. I will be sharing some of my best-kept secrets for saving time and making money with Apple! Bring your questions. Bring your excitement. Most of all . . . bring yourself to this event. And Apple is making this FREE for you! Call Apple for reservations as seats are limited: 949-629-9717.
Some other Apple sponsored events are coming, soon:
September 25 – Santa Monica at the Third Street Promenade
October 23 – Rancho Cucamonga at Victoria Gardens
November 5 – Century City
And there are a slew of additional events currently being planned for those of you in the San Francisco, Palo Alto, and Burlingame areas in early 2014.
On the app front, there is a new calendar app from Readdle called Calendars 5. I’ve downloaded, tried, and rejected many different calendar apps. This is now my favorite one because of its ease of use, integration with reminders, and cross-device synchronization. Readdle describes its app like this: “Calendars 5 is a completely new app. In a nutshell, Calendars 5 is a smart calendar that understands human language and supports tasks and iOS Reminders. It has a clean design focused on your events. It just helps you to manage your day, week and life in general, and does it good. It’s a universal app, so runs on both iPhone and iPad.” My only criticism of this app is the inability to add invitees if you are using the iOS calendar (rather than Google calendar). However, there is a simple workaround using the native iOS calendar app if that’s important.
Calendars 5 is currently $4.99. I expect that the price will be increased in the near future.

For those of you who need to pitch an idea, explain an idea succinctly, or need help creating a case theme, you might find Connection Storymaker a way to help focus your thoughts. The app is $0.99.
