Welcome to the latest issue of the Legal IT Insider newsletter (March 2015 # 281) – our top story is: HTML5 -v- Native Apps – when two tribes go to war. In the blue corner we have Tikit singing the praises of the HTML5 that underpins their new Carpe Diem Next Generation timekeeping system. And in the red corner we have Intapp, Bellefield iTimeKeep, SmartTimeApps, BigHand and Rekoop all saying “Sorry guys but Native apps are the only way to go!”
Smart Time Apps just reported that Los Angeles-based Lewis Brisbois, with over 1000 timekeepers in 32 offices, just went live with the company’s Smart Time Mobile time recording app. CEO & founder Todd Gerstein added “We were really happy to see Tikit announce their HTML5 strategy for mobile. What were they thinking? We made that mistake in 2013 along with a lot of other developers in Silicon Valley. We tried our best to make our HTML5 app native like but it was awkward and slow. It worked but nobody liked it. Everybody wants a native app because you get a better UX and performance. It is that simple.”
BigHand’s iPad app, BigHand Go, has been recognised as one of the most innovative entries in the Best Business Mobile App category at The Inquirer’s (a UK tech zine M’Lud) first ever Tech Hero Awards. You’ve got until 17th April to vote for your favourite products – and BigHand say “Please let it be us!”

Two years ago, back in the spring of 2013 when Insider editor Charles Christian gave the opening keynote at the old LawTech Futures show, there was much head-scratching over references to the concept of gamification as a way of getting lawyers to master and actually use the software applications at their disposal. At least the term now has some wider recognition and is being deployed here and there however there is still an educational task required to alert users to the benefits of edutainment. Here then is a link to a blog post from Bellefield on how Indianapolis-based law firm Krieg DeVault leverages attorney competitiveness to drive timekeeping accuracy and compliance.
