This memo provides a survey of smartphone applications that might serve as useful reference points for the development of a rural access to justice app. It is hoped that such an application could help “address the rural conundrum” by using natural language, issue identification, resource listing and mapping, as well as data tracking and sharing to improve access to justice in Canada’s remote communities. By sorting through the “shopping list” of suggested features and functionality provided by the Boldness Project, and by searching for similar use cases, a number of applications came forward as potential sources of inspiration.
