I have the answer to that question from Ed Walters, CEO of Fastcase. As I wrote here earlier today, beginning in January, Fastcase will collaborate with Public.Resource.Gov to […]
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 […]
