To say that lawyers are busy is definitely an understatement. Between juggling the documents, clients and appointments, getting through the day greatly depends on one’s ability to complete important tasks on the go. But, as digitisation has found its role in our society, so have the ever-important productivity tools, which can help us do our business more efficiently.
These productivity tools can be used on multiple platforms, often including mobile, desktop and Internet/Cloud based software. One of the platforms that offers a variety of useful productivity tools is Google Chrome. The Chrome Store is literally packed with free tools that we can use to increase our portable productivity.
Here are the picks:
Cometdocs PDF Converter is a Google Drive extension which enables users to convert PDFs to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Image and many more. The best thing about this app is that the whole conversion is done right inside Google Drive with just one click of the mouse. Definitely a useful tool when dealing with a lot of PDF files.
Already an extremely popular Chrome app, Wunderlist is a cross-platform service that enables you to create your own to-do lists and access them from anywhere, thus allowing you to keep an infinite amount of lists on your account. Plus, you can organize them in folders for further convenience.
This app has found its purpose as an irreplaceable sidekick when conducting Internet research. It enables you to save Chrome tabs and sessions so you can access them from other computers or devices at your own convenience.
Evernote’s Web Clipper allows you to send a Web page directly to your Evernote account, where you can make further changes to your notes. As a plus, you can also clip a certain part of the page, like text and images, as well as Gmail conversations. This only works in conjunction with Evernote, so if you are an Evernote user go ahead and try this one out.
