Law Ratchet - A (fairly) new app for legal news

Law Ratchet, currently only available for the iPad, is a news app that delivers legal news collected from law reviews, blogs, regulatory websites, magazines and newspapers.
  The app offers dozens of categories to choose from, covering everything from administrative news up to trust & estates. Once customized it is possible to release news in the area of interest with one click, read it and share it as desired. While the app allows to log-in with a LinkedIn, Google or Facebook account, this is not necessary in order to read or share the news.  
The creators of the app are attorneys Derek Chau and Will Mouat, previously with Ropes & Gray in Boston.
