TrialPad 4.0: Read Our Exclusive Report

By Neil J. Squillante | Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Originally published in our free TL NewsWire newsletter. Instead of reading TL NewsWire here, sign up now to receive future issues via email.

DESKTOP-CLASS TRIAL PRESENTATIONS FROM YOUR IPAD

The iPad Air receives a lot of well-deserved attention for its dramatic weight loss vis-a-vis its predecessors. However, its 64-bit A7 processor is just as significant because it enables software companies to create more powerful apps, especially for demanding tasks like trial presentations.

TrialPad 4.0 … in One Sentence

Launched today, Lit Software's TrialPad 4.0 is a trial presentation app optimized for the iPad Air (it also works on earlier iPad models running iOS 7).

The Killer Feature

You don't get second chances in trial. Every mistake can and will be held against you by jurors, most of whom would rather be somewhere else. A common mistake is a delay because of your inability to quickly find an exhibit, testimony, etc. you suddenly need for impeachment or other purposes.

TrialPad has a new search engine that searches everything in a case file — document names and their content as well as transcripts (scanned documents first require OCR to make their text searchable). The search box remains fixed on the screen for quick access. Search results display the number of times the word you searched exists in the document or folder searched. TrialPad highlights each instance of your search term within documents. You can access a document, and then navigate back to the search results to review another document that contains your search term.

"Law firms to which we've given a sneak peek of TrialPad 4.0 plan to buy multiple copies to replace their desktop presentation software," Lit Software Founder and CEO Ian O'Flaherty told us. "These firms are excited about the TrialPad's desktop-class features combined with the iPad's battery life and form factor."

Other Notable Features

Lit Software has added a number of other features too. For the uninitiated, TrialPad supports popular document, image, and video formats. You can create callouts of important sections, highlight and annotate certain words or paragraphs, and redact sensitive information. Other tools include video editing, video snapshots, a whiteboard, and organizational tools for issues and witnesses within each case.

The enhanced navigation system enables you to go directly to the Case Selection screen from anywhere. The company claims that you can also move move though nested folders faster.

New in TrialPad 4.0, thumbnail previews of documents enable you to find the one you want visually as well as by name. Exhibit stickers, which you can customize, automatically add letters or numbers in sequence, and now support headers and footers. You can also mark exhibits as admitted for tracking purposes during trial.

Import options include local (iTunes and WiFi) and cloud (Box, DropBox, and WebDAV). You can display TrialPad from your iPad wirelessly using an Apple TV or in a more traditional manner using one of the many adapters Apple sells.

What Else Should You Know?

TrialPad 4.0 contains an in-app quick tutorial to help you get started. The app costs $89.99. Learn more about TrialPad 4.0.
