Mathew Zorn designed the Dckt app for the purpose of making searching PACER documents on a mobile device much easier. Those who have used PACER are all too familiar with the difficulty of locating federal court dockets and filings on mobile devices. The app covers this website with an interface that is more user friendly, thus making it easier to locate documents from the Bankruptcy, District, and Appellate courts. In particular, this app features the ability to bookmark documents so that the user can avoid multiple charges for the court filings already retrieved, passwords can be saved, and it is more manageable to enter the case numbers. Documents can also be saved, printed, and e-mailed easily. A review by Jeff Richardson, available from iPhone JD, effectively explains the features of this app, which is only available at this time for the iPad and iPhone. Hopefully, a similar app will be created for Android devices soon.
