TrialPad is an app used by lawyers and litigators to organize and present information for judges, jurors and mediators. A more thorough review will be provided in the near future. However, there have been major improvements made that include the following:

* iPad Pro resolution support.
* Content is sharp and crisp and the layout is designed the iPad Pro.
* Increased amount of content on the screen:
* More cases viewable in the Cases Screen.

* Support for presenting in portrait orientation.
* Documents, Multimedia , and Key Docs tabs retain their respective scroll position when switching between tabs.
* Split Screen mode changes:

* Inactive document is dimmed when an annotation mode is activated, so you know which document you are working with.
* Full screen mode (Expand button) has been re-designed to take advantage of Apple’s new APIs.
* Collapsing the master view was previously something we had to work around Apple’s APIs to accomplish, but now it is officially supported.
* The animation to collapse and expand is now smoother.
* Showing and hiding the document list has been re-designed to look and behave like Apple’s Apps, with the arrows on the top left and the “Documents” back button to show the Documents list.
* The PDF viewer has been completely rewritten using Swift and Apple’s latest APIs:
* For better performance, stability, and compatibility with the latest OS features.
* For the additional capabilities under the hood that we will exploit soon, such as the change the scroll direction of pages to left-right, and scroll direction of documents to up-down.
* Smoother animations of zooming into documents.
* Annotating:
* Apple pencil support when using the laser tool (it automatically offsets when using your finger, but not when using the Apple Pencil).
