Congratulations to Fastcase and Dropbox for earning the top spots in our Legal Productivity App of the Year contest. After tabulating hundreds of votes, we awarded winners in two categories, a legal-specific application, and a general application that lawyers frequently use.
The competition was fierce, so along with our winners, we’d like to pay homage to the runner-up, and a few honorable mentions.
Top legal app of 2011
Fastcase – The leading next-generation legal research service app, this gem garnered enough votes to catapult it to the top. The Fastcase app puts a comprehensive national law library and smarter and more powerful searching, sorting, and visualization tools at your fingertip.
WestlawNext – This new version of the old standard Westlaw, the legal research service from behemoth Thomson Reuters came in a close second.
Top general app of 2011
The following apps gained a fair share of the votes and warrant a mention:
Analytics App – A great mobile version of the Google Analytics application. If you have a blog or website and track metrics frequently, this is a very handy app.
Congratulations to our nominees, winners, runner-ups and honorable mentions, and a huge thanks to you, our faithful readers for taking the time to vote.
We will continue this dynamic series in 2012. If there’s an app you love and would like to write a guest post to tell the world about it, click here to email us your idea and we’ll be in touch!
