Description of App

This release of our award-winning app showcases some exciting new features:

  • PocketJustice is now universal.This means a single version of the app will work across all iPhones and iPads running iOS 5 or higher. If you own multiple iOS devices and use the same AppleID and password, you can install the app on all of your devices but pay only once.
  • Users can choose between streaming or downloading audio. Streaming provides immediate access to our synchronized audio and transcripts over cellular or WiFi networks. It is robust: You can pause and pick up hours later at the same point in the audio. Downloading allows storage and later playback. We recommend its use over wifi eliminating data charges.
  • We have improved design and logic, including a brief tutorial to instruct old and new users on the features and functionality in the app.
  • Users can now create clips and save them in a clip repository. It is simple to create a clip of a single speaker segment, a single speaker turn, or, using the scissors function, create a clip of non-contiguous segments. Clips in the repository can be shared and repurposed in presentations or other projects consistent with our Creative Commons licensing terms.
  • We have added more cases to the collection from the 2011 Term and from suggestions and recommendations from our users amounting to 650+ abstracts, voting data, and audio+transcripts for cases decided from October 1955 through 2012. As we continue to update the online archive, the app will synchronize content with a restart. This requires that you close the app in the tray and the restart from the home screen.
  • We have added live searching. Searching begins with the first character and continues as you type, producing instant results.

Accessibility Comments

The app is perfectly accessible. However, for reasons unclear to me, the default language of the app is Spanish. So, voiceover will start reading in Spanish by default. To fix this, you need to go into voiceover settings and make sure that one of the English languages is select. Then, when the app starts reading in Spanish, spin the rotor to Language, and select "English" rather than "default language." I found this app to be both entertaining and educational.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.
