Washington, D.C. (July 7, 2010) — Legal publisher Fastcase debuted its free mobile legal research app for the iPad yesterday in a preview for industry professionals. Like Fastcase’s award-winning iPhone app, the new iPad edition is a free download, and gives free access to the company’s nationwide law libraries of state and federal case law and statutes.
And like the iPhone app, Fastcase’s iPad app is the first of its kind for legal research on the go. The app will be available to the general public in the iTunes App Store in a few days.
The new iPad app is similar to the popular Fastcase iPhone app, but it also provides users with additional features made possible by the larger screen. Among other new features, the iPad includes new results lists on a side panel in the document screen, as well as a new navigation environment for browsing statutes.
Fastcase, the leader in mobile legal research, continues to provide smarter tools for legal researchers. Fastcase for the iPad is a “universal” app, which doubles as an update for the iPhone app and an all-new app for iPad, all in the same application. When opened on the iPhone, it will be an updated version of the iPhone app. When opened on the iPad, the application detects the different hardware and opens the iPad version of the software.
