Excellent app. This is much better than the MOJ offering, although they are catching up. The updates from this app are very frequent now, so always up to date.


Well worth it


It’s in direct competition with a freebie offered by the MoJ that isn’t 5% of the quality of this one.
The interactivity and support make this well worth the fee

Developer Response

Thank-you for your excellent App review. Nice to see our customer support recognised. Nick



Fantastic aid to court business. MOJ a poor second in comparison!
Favourites are a brilliant feature. Updates are simple to load and no more paper!
