Track Phone: iPhone apps deliver time and billing on-the-go

More and more attorneys are on the move, more and more of the time. The ubiquity of smartphones means that more of those attorneys are also managing their practices on the road, through the leveraging of iPhones and other top choices in mobile telephony.

The array of applications, more commonly known as "apps," available to lawyers using smartphones is rather dizzying. Of late, we at LOMAP have had a number of questions from attorneys regularly using iPhones, and looking for time and billing applications. Fortunately for those attorneys (and for you, too, if you happen to be looking), there are a good number of time and billing apps available for the iPhone:

Jeff Richardson's iPhone JD blog lists no less than 17 time and billing apps (complete with screenshots, and descriptions) for the iPhone, in this post. Reid Trautz's Reid My Blog! references Jeff's post and also offers a couple of date calculation app choices, here, in the context of a larger listing of useful iPhone apps for lawyers. Law Technology News has recently published on time and billing app options for iPhone and Blackberry users.

Of course, if you're of the industrious and independent persuasion, you can browse the iPhone App Store, to discover your own favorites.
