Intro by Alex Van Gorp, Van Gorp Legal Services
Attorneys may find benefits especially from two apps, called Otter and Descript, that automatically transcribe conversations. While the article focuses on benefits for podcasts, they could definitely be beneficial for depositions or client meetings. Looking for a more effective way to draft documents? Bear is a great option for keeping notes while Scrivener works for long-form writing, such as a brief, by making it easy to work on specific parts of your work at a time and move them around as the final product comes together.
Sometimes, the most productive technology may be something that forces you to put your phone down so you can get to work, and Forest taps into your inner green thumb by phone inactivity being the nourishment to help a virtual tree grow... until you can no longer resist leaving the app and letting your foliage wither.
Have any experience with some of the apps mentioned in this article or want to spread the word on any productivity secrets? YLD would love to hear about your experiences.
