How To Use The App

The Wild About Trial App has an incredible amount of information available and we have done our best to make your experience enjoyable.

When you first start the Wild About Trial app you will see a listing of all of the latest headlines from the trials we are covering. Once you click on a post you will be taken to that trial and have access to that trial’s exclusive content including Facts, Players, Charges, Court Documents, Video & Live Feed (when available), Related News, Legal Commentary, as well as the ability to join the discussion by leaving comments.

You also have the ability to join Wild About Trial by registering a new account by clicking the “login/join” button or link. This will allow you to follow trials which builds a list of your favorite trials so it is easier to locate the information that is important to you. To follow a trial, simply click the star that is at the top left of each page. It will start out gray which means it has not yet been followed and when it is clicked the star will turn gold and the trial will now be in your following list. To unfollow the trial just click the star again and it will turn back to it’s original gray state. In addition to following trials you also have the ability to upload an avatar to your account (from the website only) so that when you make comments you are easily identified.
