A mobile app for court info, anywhere, any time [Chicago Defender (IL)]

(Chicago Defender (IL) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) "Who are you calling?" Jackie asked her husband John, while putting on her coat and grabbing the car keys. John replied, "I have to call the Clerk's Office before we leave. I lost my traffic ticket with the information about my upcoming court date, and I want to make sure I don't miss court." "Dear, let's go," says Jackie. "We do not want to miss our dinner reservation. On the way, you can use the Clerk of Court's mobile app on my cellphone to check your court date." "Really?" John replies, "That's great. I will have to download that app, so I will have easy access to important court information." No matter if you are on your way to a restaurant or commuting to work, traveling out of town or at a social event with friends, having the Clerk's Office's mobile app on your smartphone allows you to keep up with Cook County Circuit Court information wherever you go.

Our cellular phones, particularly smart phones, have become one of our fundamental, daily must-haves, especially for people on the go. Studies show that more than 350 million people in the United States have smartphones. On these devices, we communicate with others via text messages and email, listen to music, access the Internet, connect to our bank accounts and, in Cook County, we can handle some court-related business.

The Cook County Circuit Court Clerk is one of only three court clerks in the country that offers a mobile app for accessing court information. Called "Court Clerk Mobile Connect," our app was launched in 2013, and is free and available for download on any Android or Apple supported device, through the App Store or Coogle Play.

To date, more than 8,474 people have downloaded the Court Clerk Mobile Connect app. Obviously, it is a great app to have readily available on your mobile device(s) because you never know when it will be vitally important that you have immediate access to Cook County court-related information.

Our app's homepage displays quick hit buttons labeled: Contact Us, Website, Facilities, Fees, Search and About Us. Simply tap "Contact Us" to instantly call the general information telephone number or send an email to our main office, or tap "Website" to directly connect to our website. Click on the "Facilities" button to display a menu that lists every Clerk's Office court operations department, division and district, along with their locations and contact information. Click on "Fees" to review up-todate court-related costs and fees, such as Filing costs, Appearance fees, Criminal and Quasi-Criminal costs, etc.

The "Search" button opens the function to search our Electronic Docket, Traffic Ticket database or Court Call. For basic information about the Clerk's Office, simply tap "About Us." Court Clerk Mobile Connect is another one of the ways that the Clerk's Office is using ever-changing technology to make important Cook County court information accessible anytime, and anywhere.

The Hon. Dorothy Brown is Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County. For more information, visit vwvw. Email us at "Like" us on, and follow us on Twitter @CourtC!erkBrown.
