Fastcase recently released an app for the iPhone. And not only is the app free, but so access to the case law and statutes that it contains — even if you don’t practice in a state like Wisconsin where the desktop computer version of Fastcase is free through the State Bar.
So far the reviews have been very good, including this one from iPhone JD:
Every single lawyer using an iPhone should download the Fastcase app. Moreover, the availability of the free Fastcase app is a compelling reason for any attorney not using an iPhone to purchase one today. This app is that useful….
My research needs on the iPhone usually consist of pulling a case when I am out of the office and have a citation, doing a quick search for recent cases that contain a word or phrase, or pulling a statute…. How I wish that Fastcase for the iPhone had been released last Monday instead of last Friday! I would have made extensive use of this app during my time in the courtroom, and the app is so efficient that I would have been much more productive.
