Wilmington Delaware iPLUG Meeting April 15, 2014

What better way to celebrate Tax Day than meet with fellow members of the Delaware Legal Community for a meeting about the iPad? Bring your “tax-deductible business-expense” iPad with you along with questions that you may have on using the iPad in your legal practice (and please see your accountant before taking my advice on any tax issues!).

As usual, our meeting will be held at the Fairfax Panera Bread location (2311 Concord Pike), in the back room. The meeting will start at 7:30 am, but our organizer, Richard Herrmann, will be leaving us around 8:10 (along with our fancy projector). Although Richard is unable to stay as long as normal, I will be happy to stick around to answer questions or chat even without the ability to project my iPad.

I expect that there will be some discussion of the new Microsoft Office Suite for the iPad and the recent HeartBleed vulnerability that has been in the news. However, if you have not yet attended a meeting, there is also plenty of time for open discussion and questions about using an iPad in your Delaware legal practice. So, whether you are an expert at using your iPad, or you just are planning on spending your huge tax refund on a shiny new iPad Air, join us tomorrow, April 15, 2014, to discuss the iPad and the law.

If you cannot make tomorrow’s meeting, don’t worry, we do have meetings every month. Our current meeting schedule for Wilmington Delaware is the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 am. Our meetings are currently held at the Fairfax Panera, but please subscribe to our blog by adding your email address on the right side our page for regular updates.

Notability Steps It Up

I have always been a fan of Notability as my go to note taking application. Now it just got better!!

The newest update to the program syncs audio recording with any user typing or WRITING. I often use my iPad to record certain meetings or depositions and take notes within Notability. Now when I go back and play the audio, it is in sync with notes, typed or handwritten. The best part is that when you click on something you wrote, it jumps to that part of the audio recording.

WireCutter selects the best iPad keyboard

The WireCutter recently reviewed keyboard options for the iPad Air and for the third year in a row, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard case was selected. Considering the release of Office for the iPad, even if you didn’t use a keyboard with the iPad in the past, you might be reconsidering that decision. I have previously used the Logitech Ultrathin with the iPad with Retina, and had no real complaints. If you are considering a keyboard for your iPad, the WireCutter review is a good place to start your search.

Another Good Reason to Password Protect Your iPad/iPhone

9 to 5 Mac details an iOS 7 bug that allows anyone to disable Find My iPhone and bypass Activation Lock without a password http://9to5mac.com/2014/04/03/ios-7-bug-allows-anyone-to-disable-find-my-iphone-and-bypass-activation-lock-without-a-password/.

The good news about this new security risk is that it only works if you do not have a password setup on your iPhone or iPad.  Even if your device is unlocked, on reboot the unauthorized user would need to enter a password. The moral of the story, Password Protect Your Device!
