A PADD was a device used for storing and viewing data.
On stardate 56950.3, Jean-Luc Picard and Martin Madden were having dinner in Picard's quarters on the USS Enterprise-E. After the meal, Madden handed Picard a PADD containing names of potential senior officer candidates to fill vacant positions in the bridge crew.
Jason Fredricks was reading from a PADD on stardate 83195.9 before Hannah Freeman came to him, asking for a reassignment. After granting her request, he continued reading. It is unclear what was stored on the PADD.
Jason Fredricks later brought one with him to Nimbus III for information gathering on thalaron weapon triggers. The PADD contained at least one diagram of the triggers, which Jason showed to Law, Two of Eight, and Horace Jones.
