Thank you to Lit Software for sponsoring iPhone J.D. this month. Many of you have been using Lit Software apps on your iPad for a long time because of the excellent TrialPad and TranscriptPad apps. This month, Lit Software wants to let iPhone J.D. readers know about its newest app, DocReviewPad, an app that you can use to review and annotate documents on your iPad.
For my overview of the features of DocReviewPad, check out the review that I posted in July. I haven't yet had an opportunity to use DocReviewPad extensively in my own cases just because of the current stages of the litigation that I am currently handling. I actually started to use it with all of the documents in one case recently, and then the case settled. (Note: using DocReviewPad does not guarantee that your case will settle.) But I've been paying close attention to the features of the app and I'm very impressed.
And I continue to be more impressed because Lit Software has been updating the app since it was first released to address user requests. I've updated my original review to note many of the biggest new features, such as the ability to import documents from other apps, more sophisticated handling of Bates numbers, etc.
If you want to read and annotate documents in a case that you are handling, whether you are reviewing your own client's documents or you are working with documents produced by your opponent in discovery, DocReviewPad makes it easy to do so on your iPad.
