App of the Week: TranscriptPad for iPad
Transcript review the old-fashioned way is like panning for gold – lots of hard labor to find each valuable nugget. And this hard labor usually includes struggling through stacks of papers, highlighters, tape flags, and color-coded sticky-notes at your desk or on your commute.
Lit Software, the developers who brought you TrialPad for iPad, is transforming the way you review transcripts and conduct depositions. We specifically designed TranscriptPad for iPad to provide complex transcript review tools right on your iPad. This means that you now have the freedom of sophisticated transcript review anytime, anywhere.
TranscriptPad enables you to:
- Import transcripts (.txt) and exhibits (.pdf) via email, Dropbox, or iTunes.
- Read and review transcripts anytime, anywhere. Reference exhibits easily as you read.
- Read hands-free, create color-coded designations, flag or email critical sections, and generate reports.
- Search for references quickly across a case, a witness, or a deposition.
- Collaborate with ease. Print or email detailed or summary reports.
TranscriptPad is valuable for any attorney, and even expert witnesses can benefit from using TranscriptPad to review depositions. Pat Gannon, expert witness and audit & litigation consultant at Kaufman, Rossin & Co. states:
As an expert witness, deposition testimony of fact witnesses is often critical to my opinions. I just started using TranscriptPad and find it to be an outstanding tool for not only reading transcripts on the go, but for categorizing testimony by topic, quickly generating reports of Qs & As by topic, and more importantly, for providing quick location of previously identified key testimony without thumbing through a bunch of crumbled up and scribbled upon stickies. I believe it will become a must for every trial lawyer and expert.
So how can you get TranscriptPad? All you need is an iPad or iPad mini! This one-time purchase price of $49.99 (available in the App Store) includes free updates to new versions, and there are no subscriptions to sign up for and no recurring costs to absorb! We will also continue to maintain our reputation for prompt, helpful, and free technical support.
Lit Software is an established company that produces “serious apps for serious professionals.” Just like we have done with TrialPad, our philosophy is to produce a useful, high quality app, and to continually refine it, improve it, and incorporate user requested features.
