Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Do you want to easily look up cases on PACER using your smartphone? The iPhone PACER app FedCtRecords is free for a limited time during the holidays. The app usually sells for $19.99.
The application was developed by Newton Oldfather, a recent graduate of UCLA Law. He coded the app with the assistance of his father and a friend.
The app helps remove some of the frustrations of working with PACER, including dealing with its clunky interface.
As outlined by iPhone J.D., some of the features include:
Think about all those times you're sitting outside a courtroom, waiting to go in. It takes time to power up a laptop. Why not just use your phone for some simple searching?
Reading long PDF files on the iPhone may not be pleasant, granted. But the email function makes it easy to just forward documents on so you can read them on your laptop or work computer.
There are a few caveats to FedCtRecords. It's not formatted for the iPad, and bankruptcy files aren't up for review. But beyond that, the PACER app seems quite handy. Just remember to pick it up for free before the price shoots up.
