San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
DocketLaw and CalendarRules recently announced a partnership to create the DocketLaw App for the Apple iTunes App Store . The DocketLaw App gives lawyers the ability to calculate court deadlines without the cost and complexity of large legal calendaring software. The DocketLaw App offers mobile access to court rules in over 30 states. The DocketLaw App is designed specifically for the iPad and iPhone, with other devices and a Web version of the service to be introduced later this year. “More and more sole practitioners and small law firms are using the iPhone and iPad in their practices, but there is a lack of truly useful legal specific applications in the App store”, said Chirag Asaravala, President of DocketLaw. “The iOS core calendar is great, and widely used, but we thought we could make it even better by adding court rules related content and calculators with an App that integrates with the calendar. Because of the speed and efficiency of the CalendarRules API, we were able to focus on the user experience and design, making the App very easy to use, intuitive, and lightening fast.”
“The small law firm and solo market has suffered from a lack of reasonably priced court rules enabled calendaring software for as long as I can remember, which is about 20 years now,” said G. Scott Davis, Esq., founder and President of CalendarRules. “I used to be one of those guys, so I enjoy working with companies that focus on and understand that space. When they approached me about adding court rules capabilities to mobile devices, I was intrigued to say the least. We are very excited to add them to our list of partners.”
A trial version of the DocketLaw App was approved by Apple on January 6, 2012 and is available now at the iTunes store. The final version and subscription handling is scheduled for availability in February 2012.
