Law.com Launches New App For iPhones
An app that provides content from all ALM publications and websites has been launched by the parent company of the Connecticut Law Tribune.
The Law.com app for iPhones and iPads was one of many ALM's digital launches this year.
Jeffrey Litvack, the SVP & Chief Digital Officer at ALM, said that the audience for the app is legal professionals. "All the content is brought together in a very seamless experience," Litvack said.
Litvack said that the app is free for everyone, but for access, the user needs to ask for credentials.
"You have to fill out the form and be credentialed," Litvack said.
The app will become available to any Law.com registered user in February 2014, along with LegalTech New York.
"I had a chance to use it at the launch event on an iPad and have also installed it on my iPhone. In both cases, it is a pleasure to use and view and incorporates various features that make it functional as well as attractive," wrote lawyer Robert Ambrogi, a Massachusetts lawyer who pens the lawsitesblog.com.
Ambrogi wrote about how on the iPad, the app's homepage displays an array of top stories from ALM publications. "You can easily swipe through these stories similar to the way you would on an app such as Flipboard. The homepage shows these in horizontal layers of two side-by-side tiles, each layer representing a publication or category," Ambrogi writes.
Litvack said that ALM will be getting feedback on the app and making improvements on it. "Our goal during this period is to get feedback from our users so we can improve," Litvack said.
Anne Jackley, Director of Digital Products for ALM, said that once a user logs into the app they can see top stories and can personalize content by publication. "It's really a different way of reading and sharing content," Jackley said.
