Just seeing offers on a graph like this can be helpful enough in planning your next move, but the app also helps you to plan that move by making it easy to make a new offer that matches the dollar amount or percentage change of your last offer

Picture It Settled™, software developed to help litigants analyze their positions and design successful negotiation strategies, is now available for the new Blackberry Bold 9900 series. Picture It Settled™ Lite became available in the Apple Store and Android Market in December and debuted for several BlackBerry models in App World on March 28, 2012. The BlackBerry 9900 is the newest the thinnest BlackBerry with the most powerful engine BlackBerry has put in a smartphone.

Don Philbin developed Picture It Settled™ with expert assistance of software engineers at Southwest Research Institute®. The program uses patent-pending algorithms, neural networks, and data from thousands of cases and court statistics to help negotiators map-out successful strategies and calculate strategic moves. The Lite version easily tracks dollar moves and the time intervals between them. It then projects the intersection point in both dimensions. With each move, the App also offers pre-calculations based on negotiation theory.

Reviews have been positive for the application on iPhone and Android. According to Jeff Richardson at iPhone J.D.:“Just seeing offers on a graph like this can be helpful enough in planning your next move, but the app also helps you to plan that move by making it easy to make a new offer that matches the dollar amount or percentage change of your last offer, or the dollar amount or percentage change of your opponent's last offer.” For more information and a video about Picture It Settled™, please visit the website at http://www.pictureitsettled.com.
