Ratings and Reviews
I’m a criminal defense attorney and have used this app twice in jury trials. I will not use it a third time. There are issues with the documents moving to the right with at least part of the document off screen. Using the split screen was a nightmare. If you only use this function once its not a problem. When I tried to put up a second split screen with different images it would jump back to one of the previous images. The worst problem is that there is no way to mark exhibits. Its was difficult to match up the numbered exhibits with file names I assigned to to them before trial.
Good Trial App
This is a very helpful One of my frustrations is that when I display a document on the screen and try to expanded it, the document moves to the right leaving a black margin on the left of the screen and moving the right margin off the screen. An expanded document does not want to stay centered.
Nice start but lacking too many functions. Some of what I noticed: If you have a PDF with 2 pages, a dotted line appears between them that suggests each dot is a separate page while the reality is that you have to scrub all the way to the right or left to advance. There was no discernible way to type in a document page number to jump to it quickly (this is critical to being able to use it in a real trial setting). While there is a way to undo the last action and clear all drawn elements, there is no way to use an eraser - something an expert that might be drawing to assist testimony would need - erase all or undo last isn't enough. No integration of zones. The video worked well, which was nice, but I couldn't figure out how to play a video with a linked document (in the case where you may want to show the exhibit the witness was shown during deposition, etc.). The white board alone makes it worth investigating, but without a custom erase tool, not yet. As stated, good start but needs to be a lot more robust. As it currently exists, wouldn't use it at all.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
