Legal Productivity App of the Week – GoodReader – A Swiss Army Knife for Documents
Lawyers on mobile devices: you gotta check out GoodReader. It slices! It dices!
GoodReader, as the name implies, lets you read documents of many different shapes and sizes: PDFs, Office files (Word, Powerpoint, Excel), Hi-Res images, Web Archives, even iWorks files for the Mac fans out there.
One of the top reasons people like GoodReader is its ability to plow through enormous PDF files with blazing speed. In addition, GoodReader now sports PDF annotation functionality, allowing you to manipulate PDFs with notes, highlights, and typewriter functionality.
One of the truly hand features about GoodReader is its ability to organize files – the iPhone, with no file structure, is a pain when it comes to file management. Via GoodReader, you can create an entire folder hierarchy and manage your documents on your mobile device. You can even zip files for better storage capacity and shorter file transfer times.
From there, you can transfer your files easily – GoodReader can be accessed from computers on the same WiFi network as your mobile for direct file transfer. You can also synch with DropBox, SugarSynch, and iDisk, as well as email docs from your iPhone.
