Lawyers and Android by the Numbers (Infographic)

Lawyers definitely prefer iOS devices, but as this new infographic from MyCase shows, they’re slowing moving toward Android

MyCase Android Stats

I’m going to continue to predict a slow and steady rise in the use of Android among attorneys. Unfortunately, until more developers start getting in gear with legal specific applications, iOS will still dominate. Also, as I pointed out in this post, I think Google’s moving away from larger tablets to focus on phones and 7 inch devices.

In case you’re interested, MyCase has a really great app that I took a look at during ABA TECHSHOW 2014.

  1. Jeff, I read these numbers differently than you. Lawyers are not switching from iOS to Android, they are abandoning BBerry. Two years ago, Apple had twice the users of Android. Now it has nearly 3X. Android’s growth comes at the expense of BBerry but iOS has cannibalized BBerry even more. Once people choose an operating system on their phone/tablet, I doubt they will make another change so Android’s future growth will come from adding attorneys new to the smart phone market or abandoning a non-iOS operating system. We Apple folks will stick/are stuck with the Apple system.

    • I don’t think I ever said they’re switching from iOS to Android. In fact, I think the numbers show attorneys are still sheep, following their Apple shepherd.

      They’ll probably continue that way.

      Apple dominates. It’ll be a slow growth, but I think lawyers will eventually realize Apple doesn’t innovate and there are other options.

    • I do think, unless we see something spectacular in the iPhone 6, more people will become less enamored by Apple. We’ll see a shift in users upgrading from Apple to Android devices, especially phones.

      People will recognize that cost isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
