This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
-- Oyez provides all the information available on the Oyez website in a conveniently package form for mobile users
-- Oyez can focus their attention to the portion of the Supreme Court’s work that most interests them. For example, a student studying constitutional law could limit the app to only those cases that would be found in any casebook or textbook. Practitioners interested in bankruptcy cases could create a collection that identifies only cases bearing on bankruptcy issues. The choice remains entirely with the user.
--Users can choose between streaming or downloading audio. Streaming provides immediate access to our synchronized audio and transcripts over cellular or WiFi networks. It is robust: You can pause and pick up hours later at the same point in the audio. Downloading allows storage and later playback. We recommend its use over wifi eliminating data charges.
--We have improved design and logic, including a brief tutorial to instruct old and new users on the features and functionality in the app.
--Users can now create clips and save them in a clip repository. It is simple to create a clip of a single speaker segment, a single speaker turn, or, using the scissors function, create a clip of non-contiguous segments. Clips in the repository can be shared and later repurposed in presentations or other projects consistent with our Creative Commons licensing terms.
—Oyez will be updated regularly to account for new and old case descriptions and as the Court adds new cases to its docket.
What's New in Version 4.4.1
We continue to address bugs and improve stability and functionality in the app. In the latest release, we have added the upcoming 2017-2018 Term. You can see all the cases granted cert to date for the upcoming term.
Please fix this app.
After the most recent update (~4d ago), the app does not work. The app displays the loading screen with the Oyez logo for about 15-30 seconds and then crashes, which returns you to the iOS home screen. I have tried to use (open) the app several times since updating with no luck.. I really love the app normally and very much hope that it gets fixed soon.
P.S., I will gladly change my review after the app gets fixed.
