With the new HeinOnline iPad app you can search and read law journals, legal classics, session laws, treaties and anything else available on HeinOnline right from your iPad. The app is free, as long as you have access to HeinOnline, as all Widener students and faculty do. You have to authenticate your subscription once every 30 days from the Widener campus but otherwise you can use the HeinOnline app from anywhere.
A few months ago I did a blog post on mobile apps for law students and lawyers. I just attended the CALI conference at Marquette Law School where I saw a good presentation on iPad apps for legal education. They covered a few apps I hadn’t seen before.
GoodReader – Read and annotate PDFs on your iPad.
CamScanner – Scan and share documents with your iPad.
ThinkBook – a note taking app.
Evernote – another note taking app. I’d heard of this before but I’ve never tried it. It sounds handy.
