I found this article (See http://bit.ly/WGy2om) written by Robyn Weisman (robyn@robynweisman.com) , a freelance writer, to be very illuminating in that it demonstrated the data limitations of Trial Director on the iPad. Of course, the iPad version of TD is not meant to be a full version but to offer a path for different ways to make a presentation.

Team paralegals found that by using TranscriptPad on their iPads, (an app designed to edit text and .asc files of depositions) they could then convert all of the cuts and pastes into TrialPad, where they could cut, past, and tag inserts into an organized document. In the Deepwater litigation this involved over 300 depositions many of which averaged about 800 pages.
