iPhone and iPad

App for work

For patent lawyers who consult the U.S. Manual of Patent Examining Procedure, Plehn-Dujowich notes that there is an app for that and it is one of her favorites for work. The free MPEP app is available for the iPhone and iPad and is current through July 2010. (clickable affiliate link)

The app allows for offline access. Plehn-Dujowich says, “I commute to and from work on the train and 3G reception is not always good. Having the app comes in handy when I want to consult the MPEP.”

App for fun

Plehn-Dujowich grew up in Switzerland, studied in Israel and now lives in the United States. She has friends and family who live all over the world. To keep in touch, she uses Skype with her iPhone 4. “With Skype, I can even video chat with them from my phone. It is wonderful.”
