Thank you to Lit Software for sponsoring iPhone J.D. again this month. Lit Software was one of the first companies to recognize that the iPad is an amazingly useful tool for lawyers, and it has been creating great software for lawyers ever since 2010, the same year that the iPad itself was first released. For many years, I have heard amazing stories of attorneys having great success using TrialPad to present evidence to a jury or judge (or other audience). If you haven't yet thought about what TrialPad can bring to your own litigation practice, be sure to check out my review.
The second app for attorneys created by Lit Software was TranscriptPad (my review). I know of no better way to manage, annotate, and work with transcripts in a law practice. It easily beats working with paper or any other software solution out there. The complex litigation and other cases that I work on don't go to trial very often, but I do work with depositions all the time, so TranscriptPad is the Lit Software app that gets the most use on my iPad. I use this app every time I prepare a motion for summary judgment, and I cannot even count the number of times that this app has been essential when I am taking a deposition of one witness and I need to quickly look up what another witness said in a prior deposition.
More recently, Lit Software released DocReviewApp (my review). This is an app that you can use to review and annotate documents on your iPad, so this app is especially useful during the request for production of documents process.
As I mentioned last month, Lit Software has already announced its next app for lawyers, an app called TimelinePad which will allow you to create timelines to explain to a jury and others how certain facts, documents, etc. work together chronologically. And Lit Software frequently adds new and useful features to its existing apps.
Thanks to Lit Software for sponsoring iPhone J.D. this month, and a big thank you to Lit Software for giving attorneys these powerful apps which make the iPad so incredibly useful for litigators and others.
