Preview of Fastcase’s App for the iPad

4 Comments · Posted by Robert Ambrogi in General

As I said here last week, Fastcase is preparing to launch an iPad version of its popular iPhone app. The iPhone app, which I first previewed in January, last week was named 2010 New Product of the Year by the American Association of Law Libraries.

Meanwhile, the iPad version of the app is ready to go and awaiting final approval by Apple. Once Apple gives the OK, the app will launch.

Until then, here are four screen shots provided by Fastcase.

    While Fastcase has slick applications, my main concern is missing cases. I recall Casemaker showing that Fastcase was missing tens of thousands of cases. What if the opinion that wins my case is among them? If the tool becomes more reliable it will be fantastic, for those who use it as their only tool, it is a liability.

    The allegation wasn’t that Fastcase was missing cases. Rather, it was that it was missing citations. And keep in mind that the allegation was made by Fastcase’s biggest competitor, Casemaker. You can find a great discussion that considers both sides of this at Law Office Management Assistance Program. Also keep in mind that Fastcase just won an award from the American Association of Law Libraries, a group that presumably knows a thing or two about legal research.

    [...] And even though, as I mentioned at the outset, it doesn’t have cases, all you need is the free Fastcase app to take care of that [...]
