(We're incredibly proud that our apps have been ranked 5️⃣ and 6️⃣ on the list of the most popular apps in the 2018 ABA Technology Survey! Read all about the survey in iPhoneJD.com’s recent blog post.)
SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE COMING
It's been no secret that we'll be transitioning to a subscription model, we announced it over a year ago. We've been working on the best solution for our customers, and believe we have a win-win situation for both our users and LIT SOFTWARE.
It will allow our development team to grow alongside our user base, provide even better customer support, add user requested features and improvements more rapidly, create better support and training documentation, and continue to provide the same level of quality and reliability you've come to expect from us. All this will make LIT SOFTWARE the platform you can rely on for all your litigation software needs.
With a subscription our users won't have to worry about upfront costs, or whether the the app they just purchased is at the end of its lifecycle, or having to wait for major updates to get new features (the apps will be updated as new features become available). There also won't be any maintenance or support costs (which is a favorite of the traditional software vendors ).
We're going to offer a simple annual subscription for all our apps which means the cost can be budgeted, and you'll always be receiving the latest new features and improvements.
SO WHAT'S COMING AND WHEN?
We've been working on big updates to TrialPad, TranscriptPad, and DocReviewPad. There are too many new features and improvements to list here. Just know that we've read every support email you've sent, listened to all your feature requests, and taken your critiques seriously. We’ve also been working with Apple to make sure our apps can take advantage of the features coming in the next version of iOS.
This subscription will be called the LIT SUITE™, and this is where all our development efforts will be focused going forward. So when we introduce a new feature (or a new app) it will only be available to our LIT SUITE members. The existing versions of our current apps will be sunsetted and replaced by the new LIT SUITE apps. Our existing customers of our current apps will be able to take advantage of a special discount when they sign up for the LIT SUITE membership. This discounted subscription will remain in effect as long as members maintain their membership, which adds up to significant savings over time! We want to reward our early supporters after all.
We are very excited about what we’ll be able to offer with the LIT SUITE, and hope you’ll stay tuned as we make some great announcements over the coming months.
