Does not appear to have been updated for latest versions of Westlaw or Lexis. Non-functional as far as I can tell, unless I'm missing something.

If you decide to try and subscribe they will NOT cancel your sub. You need to go through your bank to stop getting charged.

Good app, so I buy a subscription. Stop using it, because it isn't worth $5 a month. Only method to cancel is by emailing them. After two months, no reply, still charging my card. Now I need to take up the matter with a bank. DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE YOUR CREDIT CARD! THEY WON"T CANCEL WHEN YOU ASK!

The overview doesn't say this (as of 1/31/2017 it says the opposite), but the bluebook citation feature is actually behind a paywall, leaving the free version with no useful features. I didn't spend a lot of time with it, though.

Wanted this for refreshing WL which always timed out if I was doing something else. It worked at first, but it seems the refresh feature is no longer functioning. Uninstalled and reinstalled, still timing out. No way to tell if this has been overridden by WL scripts. Wish could opt out of the Bestlaw popups and integrated features that are subscription only.

You should be able to change this under the "Settings" tab.

Awesome features, even in the free version! One star off due to some gaps in functionality. *** Great Features *** Replicates Westlaw's reading view, and provides a similar feature in Lexis, which LexisAdvance lacks. Another great feature is the "prevent logout" feature, which sets a javascript timer to auto-reload your legal research page, which on Westlaw prevents auto-logout and having to input a client ID to resume one's session. *** Gaps in Functionality *** Some of these featueres...

Very useful, especially for checking Bluebook cites and linking to free resources.

Super helpful just for the Bluebook feature and highlighting page numbers. I also really appreciate how quickly the creator responded to an email about a bug that I sent. Looking forward to when Bluebooking is added for state cases.
