    "Fastcase has been a great help to my nephew who just graduated from law school last spring. He uses this app to help him research old cases which helps him a great deal with his work. and the best part is that it's free and he can have access to the American law library any time he wants it. "

    "I upgraded to ios 11 last night, and now Dropbox won't upload my photos. On the Camera Uploads dialog, it just spins and says "Finding photos to upload..." I tried turning Camera Uploads off and on in the Dropbox settings but that didn't help."

    "Dragon Dictation is awesome for transcribing. There are tons of customization that can be done for anybody's preference. I've used it every week to transcribe minutes and notes. It is a lifesaver."

    "I know this app comes highly recommended but I'm rather mixed on it myself. It definitely has its own way of doing things and I might be a bit stubborn but somethings, like syncing and sorting, just do not feel like they work the way I'd like them to. Oh well, at least it was free."

    "When I need a document and I work across several offices, it's really helpful to store my documents "in the cloud" so they are accessible no matter which office I work out from. And I know that my client's documents are always safe. Google Drive lets me both keep a local copy on the computer and then synchronizes it with the online server, so even if I go to my other office, the new copy of the document will be there. It really comes in handy."
