Whether you want food or fun, there’s an iPhone application designed to help you find it.

 

But the gadget can also be a valuable resource for law students. After all, books are heavy, but searchable mobile versions are not.

Many classic law school resources are available in app form, allowing students to access more information with less effort than ever before.

It is a good idea for students to get used to mobile efficiency anyway. Once you are a practicing attorney, there are apps for everything from keeping track of your CLE credits to tracking court dates.
