Everybody needs their daily fix of current events. The question is -- where do you get yours? There are some news sites that are subscription-only. Others offer clunky mobile interfaces. As an attorney, you're on the go. You want something on your smartphone that can keep you up-to-date on the latest legal trends and news.

Enter the free FindLaw Legal News app. Granted, we are partial to this app for a variety of reasons -- including the fact that we created it.

But let's look at some of the other reasons why the app may be a good addition to your iOS device.

Need to keep on top of the news?

As lawyers, the stories we are drawn to tend to be more legal in nature. We're often interested in unique lawsuits, big settlements, breaking court cases, and important decisions. These are the type of articles you will find in the FindLaw Legal News app.

Want to read a concise article during your break?

You have about 20 minutes before your next deposition. You want to calm your nerves by reading some news. The stories published in the FindLaw app are short, concise, and perfect for getting your legal news fix in a short amount of time.

Feel like reading about a specific practice area?

How many news applications have a specific Bankruptcy Law section? FindLaw's app offers a variety of different categories for easy browsing. This includes bankruptcy, employment, family, criminal, injury, and DUI related news. The app also includes a keyword-search function that allows you to find specific subjects.

Articles are also broken down into metro areas. You can easily find stories about New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles to name a few.

The FindLaw Legal News App can be found in the iTunes App Store in the "News" category.
