How Do You Use Your Android Device? Mitch Jackson

You’ll probably remember Mitch Jackson from this post about Google Glass. Mitch had a detailed vision for how lawyers would use Google Glass in their law practices.

Well, Mitch shared more of his insights into how he’s using his Android device:

I’m a heavy user of social media and also happen to be an Android guy. What I like best about my Android is that it keeps me smiling because I can check out our family pics and videos any time during trial.
The awesome benefits of my Android mobile is using the device to stay connected with clients, friends and other lawyers I mentor using apps like Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Linkedin, Feedly, Pinterest and Mention. Lately I’ve been sharing a “Legal Tip of the Day” on Vine and Instagram (video). It also allows me to catch up on the various podcasters I follow using Stitcher and Soundcloud.
I use the video to shoot short on-the-fly interviews and one of several audio apps to record interviews for my communication tips and trial lawyer tips podcasts. I even plan to use my Android for Spreecast (live real time video) once they put their final spit and polish on their soon to be released app.
Mitch is certainly busy with his Android device, and he shared his home screen with me:

Mitch is rocking a Samsung device, but I’m not sure if it’s a Galaxy S3, S4, or Note 2. My guess: Galaxy S3.

Interestingly enough, Mitch has Chrome and stock browser on his home screen. I wonder why? Perhaps Mitch knows something about stock that I don’t? Click here if you’d like to learn more or connect with Mitch.

I’m thinking one of the best things about this experiment is being able to see how regular people arrange their screens. I’m a fan of folders, and lumping common apps together, but I find that more and more people — Mrs. The Droid Lawyer — cannot stand piling everything together.

If you’d like me to feature you, let me know.

  1. Jeff,

    Thanks for sharing my family pic (just made me smile).

    To answer your question, the Galaxy S3… for now 🙂

    Sometimes, for whatever reason, when one browser seems to freeze, the other browser works just fine.

    Keep up the great blog!

    Mitch

  2. Great shares gentlemen! Droid Lawyer is a great concept Jeffrey.

    I recommend Naked Browser as another browsing alternative to check out.

    OK, I *know* it sounds like a NSFW link or app, but it refers to the browser being just the pure browser, with no calls to ad or home servers and no extraneous fluff.

    Just the pure, naked, web browsing experience.

    I’ve used the free version for about a year and it’s been so rock solid I purchased the pro version and it is my go-to browser.
    Though, when I need to save a link, I’ll open it in Chrome as NB cannot sync bookmarks across devices like Chrome can (buy hey, that’s what PushBullet is for!)

    Always great meeting another Android enthusiast!

    Continues successes!
