TrialDirector for iPad by inData Corporation

Posted on: January 5th, 2013 by Angel Falconer

A few of us here at Stoll Berne love our iPads.  We also love trial technology.  Until now we hadn’t bothered with any of the apps available for trial presentation on the iPad because nothing we had seen in the demonstrations gave us the confidence that any of them could help us manage the volume of exhibits and video testimony we typically use in our cases.  So we were pretty excited when inData announced the release of its free TrialDirector app for iPad.  (Just a few months earlier, the firm had switched from Sanction to TrialDirector.)  We have successfully used TrialDirector for trial/arbitration presentations in complex cases, but until now have been limited to doing so using a laptop and the aid of a paralegal to run the presentation.  We’re excited about the combination of a trusted trial presentation software and the iPhone’s mobility and familiarity.  We love that it allows you to prepare your exhibits in TrialDirector on your desktop and then export your workbook to TrialDirector for iPad.  The initial reviews looked promising, so we’re doing some testing of our own and look forward to sharing our own experiences using this tool.  Have you had the chance to use it yet?  We’d love to hear your thoughts.  If you haven’t downloaded it yet, it’s available for free on iTunes.
