Ratings and Reviews
Really frustrating that frequently (even more frequently to nearly always recently) when switching between apps and keeping Lexis Advance running in multi-tasking then going back to Lexis, the app resets and you have to choose client again and start search all over. When using a case I want to keep, I view the PDF of the case and open it in a PDF application where I can save it and highlight/take notes on the case as I prefer to do. However, it's extremely frustrating to then go back to the app to look at the next search result or Shepard's result only to find I have to start all over again. It's actually caused me to stop working on a search at times because I don't have time to start over again at that time.
They also need to improve the search results to better sift through results. When I bring up a case in the results in a search or after I Shepardize, they should make it so we can just select the next case and not have to go back to the results and open a new tab.
App Works Great!
Look, there are few things about law practice less than doing legal research. Keeping track of billable hours is the only thing that comes to the top of my mind. The Lexis Advance app may not make doing research all sunshine and lollipops, but it sure does a great job making it easier & more effective. I was able tonight to find a case directly on point to rebut an opponent's argument in about 10 minutes, due largely to how much easier this app makes it to hone in on exactly what I was looking for. Kudos to Lexis for getting it right!
Not there yet
Coming from using Westlaw Next on the iPad I found this app significantly disappointing. Too reliant on search terms, there is no easy way to browse statutes through a table of contents, which I often do on the full web version. The app also inexplicably is missing some states, including mine, in the search parameters, making it entirely useless to search state case law without a lot of irrelevant results. While I was able to easily locate, annotate, sort and save cases and statutes in Westlaw Next, all waiting when I got to the office the next day, with Lexis Advance it is clunky and less intuitive. Hopefully future updates address these issues and make it a more fully realized and featured app.
