  • Good for paralegal student

    By Happygrl123
    I’m only new to law, I’m a paralegal student. The app has been of great help when brainstorming when I’m out and about, with an assignment on my mind, and unable to access my computer. However, one feature that’d be nice to have at hand would be the ability to narrow down searches in cited cases to statutes and such, such as “word/term search” and “reported or unreported”; the app seems a little cramped to add something like that, but perhaps on the left there could be a tab that one could click that’d open up upon the screen with those search elements, then one could hit “search” on the bottom and it’d narrow it down. Just a suggestion, but I must say this app gets it done in a pinch. Thank you
  • Could Use Notations

    By artfooldodger
    My biggest complaint is that the app does not support notations—so if you are doing research on your phone you cannot add notes or highlight text. Would love to see this resolved in the future.
  • Westlaw app..

    By I Durley
    This app. Inconveniently arranged. It did not work properly for me. Allowed me no research. Or any info. Whatsoever. After attempting to explore and compare different Histories nothing worked when pressed. Giving this app one star is generous.
  • Low tech, hard to navigate

    By Forgetitmyfriends
    Great idea but poorly executed. This app is so low-tech and clunky it will have you run back to your browser. Why can’t Westlaw create a fully integrated app with all the same functions and ease of navigation as the desktop version?
  • No iPad Pro Support

    By Justin3546
    It appears that they have given up on the development of this app and the website. Not sure what happened.
  • Can’t freaking scroll case results!!!

    By TJ__
    I only want to look at cases, but when I select the cases from my search results, it stops letting me scroll. Completely useless for research if your top result isn’t what you’re looking for.
  • What happened?

    By Jkh1987
    This app was usable when I needed to quickly reference something. It hasn’t been great for research at any point, but at least it was readable. Now, after the latest round of updates following iOS 11.1.1, the graphics and text are all way to big. Either this app doesn’t support dynamic text, or the developers adapted it for iPhone X, and didn’t care about the users with other versions of iPhones. Please fix this. Your app looks terrible. *UPDATE* The graphics issue was resolved in a recent update. Thank you.
  • What gives?

    By steven.c.moeller
    Until the most recent update, my only complaint about the app was that I could not add highlighting or notes to cases in the app. Not a big problem. For all other purposes, it was excellent. But with the recent update, the text is unreadably, comically, preposterously large. It’s *almost unusable*. What gives?
  • Magnificent

    By Lance - DE Law School
    Honestly, the first product that I can call utterly perfect. Thank you.
  • Awful

    By Dragonlawyer.
    Couldn’t perform searches or download documents. Worthless.
