Looking for legal research on the go? Here’s a solution. Fastcase has just revealed an all-new mobile legal research app for iPhone users. Claming to be the world’s largest free law library on the iPhone, the app utilizes smart search technology from Fastcase’s fully-featured Web-based legal search application.
Users can now sort the most relevant results to the top of the list, customize and re-sort search results, and integrate citation analysis tools right into the results list. The app is enriched with multiple unique and intuitive features, offering users an unprecedented experience. In fact, the app helps in searching the comprehensive Fastcase legal research database with keyword (or ‘Boolean’) search in addition to citation lookup for cases and statutes. Fastcase also lends support to ‘browsing’ statutes in outline view.
“The future of legal research is mobile devices – ubiquitous computing and access anywhere,” commented Ed Walters, CEO of Fastcase. “The mobile platform is what’s next for legal research, and Fastcase is going to be a major player in this emerging market.”
Besides, the legal research app is free, but users will need to register an account so that they can save favorites and their own customized search history.
Fastcase for iPhone and iPod Touch is now up for grabs at Apple’s App Store. So, jump right to most relevant paragraph of any case or statute or simply save favorite documents for later use.
