Not Useful—Very Disappointed
I rarely write reviews, but I wanted to warn others against buying an app that does not provide much that a good pocket calculator and Google search can't do. The tools that this app has are not useful for the vast majority of legal possessional, because they are never applicable to our day-to-day work (e.g. a cost of living calculator) and the few that one might use, provide insufficient information with insffuicent sourcing making them virtually useless. While it is from the people behind the fantastic Wolfram Alpha search engine, the results are nearly identical to what would get from using the website.
It's a wonderful idea, but really disappointing that it isn't useful for the professional.
