Texas Bar Legal App
The Texas Bar Journal is reporting that the Texas State Bar now has its own app for attorneys available for both Android and Apple devices including phones and tablets as well as a web app for those using other devices. The App, created by the Computer & Technology section of the Texas State Bar, provides access to dozens of Texas and Federal statutes, codes, and rules as well as free case law from Google Scholar. There are search and e-mail options available to users who can also access materials without an internet connection, unless using the web app. The app is free for members of the Computer & Technology section and currently requires a section username (bar number) and password for access. The app can be downloaded from the Android market and Itunes, and those using the web app only need to login directly from their mobile devices.
