Great law research tools

I am really enjoying the ongoing development of technology and its effect on my practice. I have recently discovered several tools which I have found useful for my practice, particularly in reducing research time and allowing me to do work on the run. These are as follows:

The daily list iPhone app - this is an app for the iPhone which provides updated daily lists and contact details for all Victorian State Courts. The app allows the user to conveniently search the lists and sort the data.

ACLC iPhone app - this is an app for the iPhone which allows the user to search for the corresponding sections of the old Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) and the new Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth).

Legify - this is a website which allows the user to search the title and find the full updated or historical text of any authoritative version of state or federal legislation (including subordinate). It is helpful if the user knows all or part of the title of the legislation/regulation the user is looking for.

Do you have any similar apps or sites which help your practice? Let me know what they are as they might equally help mine!
