  • Many law firms use WordPerfect and if you do the WordPerfect Viewer by Corel, may be for you. This new app lets you read, search and place bookmarks in your .wpd files. Unfortunately, you cannot edit them.

  • TrialPad allows attorneys to present their Exhibits in court, via a projector. Create a Case file/folder and you will have the ability to store, organize and annotate your PDFs. You add PDFs to your Case file, via email or dropbox. My one other frustration was that when I was annotating my PDF, every time I lifted my finger after using the pen, redact or highlight, I would have to tap the option again before I could use it, again. This was especially aggravating in the pen mode – who wants to tap again, just to dot your “I” or cross your “t”? Let alone, if you want to write a sentence. And, the capital letter ‘I”? Forget about it! That letter alone takes three taps! This is something I hope is addressed in the next update. A nice feature is the ease of duplicating a PDF, as a Hot Doc. This would be especially helpful in situations where you are illustrating an Exhibit, which you want to annotate based on different points of view – such as, witness(es), defendant, victim(s), etc. This is a pricey app, when compared to the average paid app. But, TrialPad is not a game or even meant for personal use. This is a professional app and created specifically for the busy litigator. Need separate VGA adapter for the iPad to display on a projector
  • Evidence is exhibit presentation software You can rotate documents, annotate, highlight It displays PDFs, images, powerpoint, text documents Need separate VGA adapter for the iPad to display on a projector
