We’re pleased to announce our new iPhone application, which allows lawyers and legal professionals to reach mobile users with the content they upload on JD Supra.
Our ‘Legal Edge’ iPhone app streams by subject all of the latest alerts, articles, newsletters, blog posts, court filings, and other legal content uploaded to JD Supra. Subjects include immigration, bankruptcy, real estate, banking & finance, tax law, insurance, intellectual property, and law marketing, among others.
Available for free download at the iTunes store, the ‘Legal Edge’ app allows iPhone users to browse legal news by any subject of interest and to read documents in the phone’s Safari browser or PDF reader. The PDF option includes ‘landscape’ view and zoom functionality for easy reading. Users can also contact authors directly with a "Contact Contributor" button (available for documents posted by JD Supra premium account holders).
San Diego bankruptcy attorney Carl Starrett said in this morning’s press release:
Now, my work on JD Supra doesn’t only appear in email digests, Twitter news feeds, Facebook pages, RSS streams, and third-party news sources – it also goes to the iPhone. All I do is upload the document.
Indeed, this iPhone application is the latest delivery on our promise to place the legal content that spotlights your expertise in front of the people you want to reach, wherever they gather. ‘Legal Edge’ is the first of our mobile applications, a program that will extend to other popular platforms.
