Good morning, iPad Lawyer Tribe.
Just a quick reminder, I will be appearing at a special Apple event on October 8 at Apple’s Victoria Garden’s briefing room. We will be discussing using iOS 8 and the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in your business. Once the reservation page is made “live,” I will let you know.
Speaking of iOS 8, I trust you have all now upgraded to the new operating system. iOS 8.0.2 it is also out. While there have been some reported issues with the new update, I can tell you that I have upgraded without any problems at all. And there are many app developers who are upgrading and reinvention their apps to run beautifully in the iOS 8 world. Please remember to backup your iDevice BEFORE upgrading. And I continue to recommend that you do your back through iTunes.
On the app front, there are a couple of apps I want to tell you about this morning.
iAnnotate — one of the most powerful PDF annotation apps out there — is on sale. Normally, the app is $9.99. Today it is only $4.99. You save $5.00.

While not on sale, PDF Expert — another really powerful PDF annotation tool — is now cross-device (you can use it on your iPad and iPhone). PDF Expert is the app you’ve heard me talk about for use in affixing signatures to documents. And now it even includes a PDF form filling function. The app is $9.99.

For those of you who use Post-It Notes to create and brainstorm, I’ve been very impressed with Post-It Plus. This marvelous app uses your Camera to take a picture of handwritten Post-It notes and then converts those images to maneuverable notes on your iPad and iPhone. Best of all IT’S FREE. Check it out.

Finally, some don’t like the loss of their Camera Roll with the iOS 8 upgrade. I have a solution for you. Take a look at MyRoll: Smart Camera Roll Organizer. The app is FREE and brings back your Camera Roll in its own app.

Finally, I want to take a moment to thank all of you who’ve continued to support my book, “The Million Dollar iPad: Secrets for Increasing Your Profits, Productivity and Business Performance.” Available as a Kindle download on Amazon, the Second Edition has been released and, thanks to all of you, reached Number 1. Over a year after its original release, the book remains in the charts across several categories. You can read more about it here:
