Best Process Server Apps

For the on-the-go process server, their phone is an essential tool. It allows the server to communicate, conduct research, and even get from point A to point B. But phones are made even more useful with the addition of certain applications. App functions can range from finding the cheapest gas near you to plotting out the quickest route.

Unfortunately, with the sheer number of apps out there, it can be time-consuming to browse through them all to find the ones that will be useful to you. So here is a list of useful apps based on user reviews, suggestions from professional process servers, and sometimes even just a hunch that they could make your life easier. Try them out and let us know how they work for you, and if you have suggestions for other apps, you can post them on our Facebook page.

While it may seem like a distraction to have these apps on your phone, they’re also sometimes the best link you have to those you’re serving. If someone is avoiding or you want to find a different location to serve them, look them up on any number of the social medias below.
