If you work as an attorney or an office manager at a legal office then you know exactly how time-consuming it can be to track the CLE credits of everyone. This is exactly why the iCLE app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone has been created so you can keep track of your own, or if you're an office manager, keep track of multiple attorneys CLE credits. What's great is that this is a long-term solution, meaning you can continue to use it and stay on top of what each person has.
The iCLE app gives users a way to transform what is typically a tedious task and makes it simple and streamlined instead. With this app you'll be able to keep track of how many credits have been earned in CLE classes as well as what classes were taken. You'll be able to use this tool to track as many attorneys as you like, making it perfect for office managers. What’s interesting is that a large amount of states now require that attorneys have continuing education so it’s imperative it be tracked and recorded.
The app hasn't been updated in quite some time, with its last one being just over two years ago when some bug fixes were made. Obviously at this point it would be nice to see some enhancements and improvements. At this time it doesn't have a customer rating.
Features of the App
Although you won't find a ton of extra features with iCLE app there are a few things worth mentioning. For instance you can filter the courses so that you can see how many credits you, or one of the attorneys, currently holds in a category. At the same time you can use date filters so that you see a breakdown of when these courses were taken. Credit information can be emailed at any time, you can add a picture of your certification form to each class, and the app provides links to CLE information available through iTunes.
The iTunes feature is unique in that all you have to do is tap on the "iTunes U CLE" button and you'll be given a list of subjects. Just tap on the subject you are interested in and you're given another list which provides you with free podcasts on that subject. This app can definitely prove to be helpful; it would just be nice to see it modernized a bit more.
