Trial Presentation Apps

 These days more and more attorneys are using technology in the courtroom and some apps have been created to help them with organizing information and presenting it at trial.  The following apps have been created specifically to help attorneys with trial presentations:
  • TrialDirector – This free app is currently available for the iPad.  Users can import PDF documents, images, and videos through Dropbox, iTunes, and other programs, markup and annotate documents, and present and annotate two exhibits side-by-side.  More features are available for those who subscribe to the desktop TrialDirector software. 
  • ExhibitView – This iPad app costs $89.99 and allows users to import PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and image documents through iTunes or Dropbox.  Audio and video files are also supported.  You can also markup and annotate files as well as print documents. Those who subscribe to the PC version of ExhibitView can also create presentations on their PCs and save them to their iPads. 
  • TrialPad – This app, available for iPad, costs $129.99.  It allows users to import PDF, TXT, and image files through Dropbox, iTunes, and other online file systems.  Users can also edit and show video clips, markup and annotate documents, and create side-by-side document comparisons.  This app does not have a desktop version of its software.  
For more information about these apps and all of their features, see the links provided for each one above.
