App Friday: The Favorite Apps of David Flint
David Flint is a partner in the Technology, Media and Communications Group of the Glasgow, Scotland-based law firm MacRoberts LLP and co-chair of the Intellectual Property Subcommittee of the ABA Section of Business Law’s International Business Law Committee.
Flint has the distinction of being the only Scottish solicitor accredited as an expert in both intellectual property law and insolvency law. Though he’s a prolific author, having written a number of textbooks and articles, Flint is also adept at getting his message across in Twitter’s 140–character limit. An active tweeter, he can be found at @dfscot.
In this week’s App Friday, Flint shares his favorite apps for work and fun.
BlackBerry, iPhone and netbook Samsung NP-NC10
Apps for work
For instant messaging with colleagues and clients, Flint likes iDialog for the iPhone, which he is able to use through his firm’s communications system while traveling. Flint is also waiting for Microsoft’s Lync Client app, which integrates e-mail, voice, instant messaging, audio, videoconference tasks and desktop sharing, to be released.
Apps for fun
Flint enjoys puzzles. Some of his favorite apps include Scrabble for the iPhone and Words with Friends, which he plays across the Internet from his iPhone. His biggest complaint about Words with Friends is that it doesn’t have “an ‘English’ English dictionary.”
Frequent trips also make travel-related apps a must on his devices. Dutch Railway’s Reisplanner (BB)(also on iPhone) app provides up-to-date travel information, as does Travel Plan for iPhone and when a flight is delayed the Priority Pass app helps Flint find a Priority Pass lounge anytime, anywhere.
