Our new tablet edition of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin is now available for everyday use by our subscribers. Not sure how it works? These tips will explain it for you.
What will I find in the tablet version of the Law Bulletin?
What is the tablet edition?
The tablet edition gives our subscribers one more way to keep up with the law and the business of law. It is aimed at readers who have embraced this new technology for reading news using touch-screen technology. The experience evokes the best elements of print and online news. Color photos are more vibrant on the display and the text is sharp and easy-to-read.
The tablet edition includes all of the daily and weekly legal news you've come to love in the newspaper and the regular site - Case Summaries, Trial Notebook, In Chambers, In-House Counsel, Sporting Judgment, Non-billable Hours and more. Public notices, court assignments and court announcements can also be accessed through the tablet edition.
Does the tablet edition work only on the iPad?
While our tablet edition is optimized for the iPad, it will function on other devices as well. The tablet edition is essentially a Web site itself.
Do I have to download an app for it to access it?
No. If you go to the site in a browser such as Safari, the tablet version will automatically come up. You do not have to go to an app store to download anything.
I want to add a shortcut to the tablet edition on my device. How do I do that?
- Open Safari, and go to www.ChicagoLawBulletin.com/t/
- Tap the icon next to the address field (top arrow).
- Tap the “Add to Home Screen” item (right arrow).
- In the dialog, edit the text that you’d like to accompany the CDLB tablet icon.
- The icon will appear among the apps on your iPad.
The next time you want to visit the site, simply tap the CDLB tablet icon (shown at left), which will open Safari and take you directly to the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin tablet edition.
I am a Law Bulletin subscriber. Do I need to purchase anything extra for access to the tablet edition?
