Bellefield Releases iTimeKeep Native App for Android Devices, Now Available in the Google Play Store

The release of the native application of iTimeKeep for Android devices reaffirms Bellefield’s commitment to providing the best user experience for attorneys on the go.

iTimeKeep for Apple iOS devices is the highest rated mobile time entry app for attorneys in Apple’s AppStore. The release of iTimeKeep for Android devices brings the same level of usability and comfort to thousands of firms and further solidifies Bellefield’s position as the leader in integrated mobile time entry for the legal market. You can download iTimeKeep Android from the Google Play Store.

Bellefield’s CTO, Daniel Garcia, celebrates the milestone: “The debate between HTML5 vs . Native Apps has been raging for a while, and both approaches have benefits and drawbacks. At Bellefield, we are primarily focused on the customer experience, simplicity and ease of use for the attorney. From that perspective, the choice is clear.  Native applications are a better solution. Unlike other vendors in the legal space, Bellefield is willing to make the considerable financial investment needed to bring native applications to the market and provide the best experience. The fact that iTimeKeep receives rave reviews and boasts a 5 star rating in the App Store validates our fundamental belief that customer experience comes first.”

Todd Carlisle, a shareholder with Sirote & Permutt (www.sirote.com) and an iTimeKeep client, describes Sirote’s selection process: "We have invested a great deal of energy in reviewing the available mobile timekeeping concepts applicable to law firms.  Our conclusion is that native apps, specifically designed for iOS and Android devices, provide the best user experience for our mobile timekeepers.   While HTML5 browser-based solutions offer a compelling menu of features, the cluttered interface required to offer a broad set of features often results in an app that is confusing to use on a mobile device.   The primary purpose of a mobile timekeeping app is to provide a quick time entry option with minimal training and support required.  The native iTimeKeep apps for iPhone, iPad and Android devices integrate well with our time and billing system and have been a great addition to the mobile platform that we provide for our legal professionals.”

The growing adoption of Android devices in law firms and requests for an iTimeKeep app from clients prompted Bellefield’s development of the native Android application.  Bellefield continues to heavily invest in research and development, bringing attorneys the best mobile applications in a quickly changing legal environment.
