A lawyer in your pocket?

I suppose there comes a time in most people’s lives when they are actually pleased to see a lawyer riding in from the distance. This feeling of relief will be felt no less strongly if you’ve just been involved in a road accident or are about to be arrested for driving under the influence or whilst intoxicated. Whilst the friendly lawyer won’t exactly be riding in from the distance with this app he or she will only be as far away as your pocket.

Increase sales by Increasing Trust

High Street stores love to advertise that they have been around for years and that you can trust them implicitly but there's not really any retro verification online.

TrustRoll is an ecommerce marketing security tool where you can collect all your trust scores from eBay, Artfire, Etsy and others in one place for your customers to see.     TrustRoll ...  More

It's a very simple service that tracks and monitors your email account for suspicious activities and let's you know via your phone immediately if it finds anything iffy. ...  More
