The iPad Lawyer – Seminars and Apps – 5/28/2015

Good morning, all. I trust this finds all of you well and using your iOS devices to their max! As you can tell, there hasn’t been a lot going on in the world of apps that I found worthy of reporting about. Personally, I think the release of Apple Watch has created such a stir in the world of developers that most are waiting around to see how they can incorporate the watch into their offerings.

However, today there are a couple of apps I want to tell you about.

As you know, one of my favorite and most-used apps is iThoughts HD. It’s a mindmapping app. But I use it as an amazing PIM.  The app is normally $9.99. Today it is only $4.99. You save $5.00.

If you use your iPhone or iPad to manipulate and create images, you’re going to want to check out Pixelmator. You can do graphic design, photo painting, and other advanced editing of your images with it. And, best of all, it’s now available on both the iPad and iPhone. The app is $4.99.

Some of you continue to ask about business card scanning. Well, I use ScanBizCards. And now it’s available for use on your iPad as well as your iPhone. It’s only $.99.

App Store Link – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scanbizcards-business-card/id335047649?mt=8

The lecture circuit has been quiet while Apple rolls out the Apple Watch. I’ll be appearing, again, for Apple in October up in the San Francisco and Palo Alto. More information to come!

Finally, speaking of watches, I’ll be putting together my “The 10 Things You’re Doing Wrong With Your Apple Watch (and how to fix them)” booklet in the near future. I’ve been super busy getting ready for the release of my new book, “The Most Magical Secret – 4 Weeks to an Ecstatic Life” which is coming out in July. As a reminder, you can still get on the mailing list for The Most Magical Secret here >>> http://thebookspot.org/mostmagicalsecret

That’s all for now. Here’s to your continued iOS success! – Scott

The iPad Lawyer – Apple Event Tonight at Fashion Island

The iPad Lawyer – Seminars and Apps – 3/27/2015

Good morning, everyone. It’s Friday and I’ll bet you’re getting ready for a killer weekend. Let me make that excitement just a little bit sweeter with two app deals I don’t think you’ll pass up.

I could do an entire seminar on the productivity wizard called iThoughts HD. It’s essentially a mindmapping app. But, I use it for project management, brainstorming, and as a personal information manager. The app is normally $9.99. Today it is only $1.99. You save $8.00.

App Store Link — https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ithoughts-mindmap/id866786833?mt=8

Publisher Link — http://toketaware.com/

For those of you who like to use your iPad for word-processing, you can’t do much better than an app called Textilus. Designed specifically for your iPad, it’s being called one of the best word-processing apps available. You get auto-syncing with your favorite cloud provider. And you can even sign documents with this version. For you authors in the bunch, you also get instant text statistics and counters: characters, words, reading time, sentences, and average word length. Normally, Textilus is normally $5.99. Today it is $.99. You save $5.00.

App Store Link – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/textilus-word-document-processor/id537818639?mt=8

The iPad Lawyer – Seminars and Apps – 1/23/2015

Good morning, all. I trust this finds all of you well and using your iOS devices to their max!

Let’s jump right into some terrific app deals that will push you and your business even farther . . .

One of my favorite apps of all time is iThoughts HD. It’s a mindmapping app. And it can be used for so much more than simple tracking of your thoughts. I’ve mentioned it before, but I use it for an amazing PIM.  The app is normally $9.99. Today it is only $1.99. You save $8.00.

App Store Link — https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ithoughts-mindmap/id866786833?mt=8

Publisher Link — http://toketaware.com/

For those of you who want to turn your iPad or iPhone into a second monitor for your Mac, you can’t do better than to look at Duet Display. The app is free to download on your Mac. The iOS version is $14.99. Here’s the important part of all this . . . ex-Apple engineers created this and so far there is no lag between displays. Rather than using Bluetooth (like other apps do), this utilizes your lightning connector.

App Store Link — https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/duet-display/id935754064?mt=8

Publisher Link — http://www.duetdisplay.com/ 

For those of you who like to or have to keep meeting minutes, here’s a new app designed just for you. It’s called Minutes. The app is FREE!

One more thing . . . for those of you who are using Microsoft Word, Excel, and OneNote — there are some updates available that provide bug fixes and stability improvements. You can get these updates FREE through the App Store on your devices.

As to my appearances for Apple, we’re still finalizing some last-minute things. More details will follow. In the meantime, I will be at the following locations in Southern California in February.

Pasadena — February 18

Third Street Promenade (Santa Monica) — February 19

That’s all for now. Here’s to your continued iOS success! – Scott

The iPad Lawyer Seminars and Apps – 12/16/2014

Good morning, iPad Lawyer Tribe.

Lots to talk about this morning.

First, on the app front —

Day One is a journaling app for your iPhone and iPad. What you don’t want to keep a diary?

Today it is on sale for $.99. You save $4.00.

Here’s a fun little shortcut tool that I use and don’t talk about much because I keep it for myself. It’s called Launch Center Pro. It’s like speed dial for everyday tasks.

I continually harp on business owners to implement automated document assembly techniques as the only way to survive in today’s fast-paced world. Well, my primary tool for doing this myself is Text Expander 3. Text Expander lets you create snippets of text to automate your workflow. I can’t rave about this app enough. Normally, the app is $4.99. Today it is $2.99. You save $2.00.

App Store Link — https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/textexpander-3-+-custom-keyboard/id917416298?mt=8

Now, on to seminars. While I’ve finished my last live event for 2014, I’m already in talks with Apple (and others) for new events for 2015. Just yesterday I finalized and confirmed that we will start the new year out with Apple with these two mobility-minded and success-tool events:

February 18, 2015 — Pasadena
February 19, 2015 — Third Street Promenade

Mark your calendars now. When the events get closer, I will let you know how to register so that you can attend.

Finally, I want to thank all of you for continuing to keep “The Million Dollar iPad: Secrets for Increasing Your Profits, Productivity and Business Performance” a best-seller on Amazon. Now, in its Second Edition, “The Million Dollar iPad” has been called the best information out there to help you get up-to-speed quickly and efficiently with your iPad and iPhone. If you’d like to purchase it for yourself or as a gift for a friend or loved one, you can find it here ===>

The iPad Lawyer Seminars and Apps – 11/21/2014

Good morning, all.

I want to thank those of you who attended last night’s seminar. It was APPLE’S LAST EVENT of 2014 in it’s beautiful Santa Monica briefing center. It was memorable, exciting, and great fun to be able to share with all of you my “Day-in-the-Life-of-Scott” system. I assure you that we are already exploring how to take this to an even deeper level in 2015!!!

And, if that isn’t enough, you’ve kept The Million Dollar iPad in the Top 10! THANK YOU!

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DTVKT7G

Now, on to app news . . . and have I got some real deals for you today.

You know, by now, that I live in iThoughts HD. It’s primarily a mindmapping app. And I’ve learned a way to tweak and systematize it so that it actually works like my long-lost love Lotus Agenda. That’s right . . . It can be a powerful PIM, too. The app is normally $9.99. Today it is only $1.99. You save $8.00.
