At ABA Techshow last week, MyCase, the cloud-based practice management platform, previewed the new version of its app, which it will be releasing for both iOS and Android devices. (Click any image above for a larger view or see an animated view below.)

MyCase would not provide a date certain for release of the app. It will begin beta testing with select customers in the near future and roll it out after it is satisfied that the app has been thoroughly vetted and is ready for large-scale release.

In developing the new app, MyCase says that it carefully studied how solo and small-firm lawyers want to use their mobile devices and the activities they need to be able to do when they’re away from their desks.

The new app will focus on enabling lawyers to do those things well and on leveraging the unique attributes of smartphones to provide better access to information and greater efficiency, the company said.

“MyCase recognizes that it’s an increasingly mobile world and we’re moving forward with our mobile development in a whole new way to reflect this,” Tracy Stevens, vice president of product, said in a statement. “Our expectation is that the new apps will uniquely support the activities that our customers are trying to get done when they’re away from their offices and will be equally as indispensable as the version they use on their desktops.”
