Mobile apps & interfaces for Law
What's the difference between a mobile app & a mobile interface?
- Mobile interfaces are versions of regular websites optimized to work on mobile devices. Use the browser on your mobile device to access them.
- Mobile apps are programs that need to be downloaded and installed on a mobile device before they can be used. They may be specific to one type of device (e.g., Android, Blackberry, iPhone, iPad). Some are free, others require payment.
New apps/interfaces are constantly being developed -- this page will be updated as we find out about them.
