Legal research on your iPhone

Fastcase – a competitor to Casemaker – has introduced a legal research app for iPhones.  Robert Ambrogi reviews it on his website, Lawsites.  The app, which is awaiting approval from Apple, “will be free to download and searching the Fastcase library using the app will also be free. First-time users will be required to register, but there will be no cost. Current Fastcase subscribers will be able to use their existing log-on and password.”

Other legal vendors are in the apps market.  For example, Lexis has a free iPhone app, for Lexis subscribers.  Lawbox, yet another legal research app, is reviewed on a website called iPhone J.D.

It’s the future – now.
