Lit Software is planning on officially introducing TrialPad 4.0 at the ABA TechShow in Chicago tomorrow, but since this upgrade will not be available for free for existing users, they have made it available at a special price of $49.99 for a pre-launch sale until March 28th, 2014. Beginning March 29th, TrialPad will return to its usual price of $89.99.
The new version of TrialPad has been totally redesigned for iOS 7 with a more intuitive interface that is easier to use. It has been optimized to take advantage of the new processor in the iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina, and has improved memory optimization for all. Navigation has been improved, and evidence reports are now created within the case.
New features include a powerful search tool, thumbnail previews of evidence, customizable exhibit stickers, admitted label to track documents during trial, and new sorting options. Overall this is a big release for Lit Software and the reason that the upgrade is not free for existing users.
I have never been a big fan of TrialPad, but for litigators using the iPad in the Courtroom, this is currently the go to app. If you have been wanting to try out TrialPad, I recommend doing so now at the special introductory price of $49.99. I have downloaded and will give more thoughts after I have had a chance to use it.
TranscriptPad is also on sale for $49.99 until March 28th. TranscriptPad also is normally $89.99. It has not received the same massive upgrade recently, but Lit Software promises exciting new features and improvements that will be available as free updates over the next few months. If you have been wanting to try out TranscriptPad, her is your chance at a very special price. (TranscriptPad will work only with ASCII in TXT format transcripts. It cannot read or use Word documents or PDFs.)
I will be at the ABA TechShow this week and I expect to more information on both of these products.
