Nothing else like it

It’s great. I love it. But the constant crashes are getting annoying (even on new iPad Pro). An app at this price, that is meant to be used in the high pressure environment of litigation should be more stable.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your compliments and feedback! Please get in touch with us at support@litsoftware.com to discuss why you might be experiencing crashes. TranscriptPad is widely used in law firms and courtrooms without any issues. If you can share the transcript with us we might be able to reproduce the issue and suggest a workaround or provide a solution.

Missing App

The app runs on my iPad Pro, but the icon for it is hidden. You have to start it from the search window.

Developer Response ,

Developers have no control over showing or hiding an app icon. If you can open the app it is definitely installed on your iPad. Maybe it was placed in a folder, or on a different Home screen (swipe right and left to view your different Home screens). If you have placed it in a folder it will show the name of the folder on the right side of the search results window. You can then move it to another location using instructions found in this Apple support document: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT200290
Hopefully once you find the app, and move it to your preferred location, you'll revisit this review and change it to 5 stars! And you can always reach us at support@litsoftware.com

I love it!

OK. I really love this app for transcripts. It's way better than I thought it would be!

The color coding of issues is great - I just wish we could have more colors. But I also love the generated reports.

It's a little clunky in spots, for example, importing transcripts from DropBox works well, it's just not that intuitive. It took me a couple of times to get the hang of it. It also doesn't remember the last directory so sometimes you have to keep going through multiple directories to get back to the transcripts in DropBox. I cured this by creating a TrialPad import directory ion the root of DropBox and then on my PC copying the transcript files I wanted to import to TrialPad there.

I am sure with more users, this app will be improved. It's definitely worth $50, and I would encourage all attorneys to get this invaluable app.

Oh yeah...I love the underlining + the highlighting in addition to color coding issues.

Great job developers!
