Supreme Court launches mobile app

The Supreme Court on Friday launched a mobile application designed to enhance public access to the judiciary.

Called "Supreme Court of the Philippines," the application has four features -- the Judiciary Memorabilia Hall, a court locator, lawyers' list, and a Court directory, said Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin.

Some of the information about the Court and its history can be unlocked by scanning QR codes installed at the Judiciary Memorabilia Hall in the SC's Old Building along Padre Faura St. in Manila, a feature that Court spokesman Brian Hosaka hopes would encourage the public to visit the hall.

The application was introduced to the public three months after the Court launched a revamped website that mainly featured a new e-library containing decisions of the SC and of the Court of Appeals, laws, executive issuances, treaties, and other references.

The application is available on the Google Play Store and will be available on the Apple App Store soon, the Court's Public Information Office said.

Hosaka said future features of the application may include the earlier launched e-library and information on whether or not the lawyers listed in the database have faced administrative sanctions. —KBK, GMA News
