Nevada Supreme Court App Now Available for Android

 

The Nevada Supreme Court has expanded online access to court documents and information by launching an Android version of a popular application. The same app has been available for both iPhones and iPads since March. The new Android app allows those attorneys and members of the general public who do not utilize Apple devices to have the same mobile access to court documents.

 

Both versions of the app include a function allowing case document access similar to the case search function available through the Supreme Court website's public portal. Those utilizing the apps can access publicly filed briefs, motions, orders and opinions. Documents filed in the cases can be easily pulled up in PDF format. Both systems allow users to create lists of their "favorite" cases for even easier access. Users can also view the court's calendar, watch live webcasts of Supreme Court oral arguments, and listen to recordings of previously-held oral arguments. News items, court information and self-help court forms are also available. 

 

The Android app is available for free download through Google Play. The Apple version can be found through iTunes
