-- Oyez provides all the information available on the Oyez website in a conveniently package form for mobile users
-- Oyez can focus their attention to the portion of the Supreme Court’s work that most interests them. For example, a student studying constitutional law could limit the app to only those cases that would be found in any casebook or textbook. Practitioners interested in bankruptcy cases could create a collection that identifies only cases bearing on bankruptcy issues. The choice remains entirely with the user.
--Users can choose between streaming or downloading audio. Streaming provides immediate access to our synchronized audio and transcripts over cellular or WiFi networks. It is robust: You can pause and pick up hours later at the same point in the audio. Downloading allows storage and later playback. We recommend its use over wifi eliminating data charges.
--We have improved design and logic, including a brief tutorial to instruct old and new users on the features and functionality in the app.
--Users can now create clips and save them in a clip repository. It is simple to create a clip of a single speaker segment, a single speaker turn, or, using the scissors function, create a clip of non-contiguous segments. Clips in the repository can be shared and later repurposed in presentations or other projects consistent with our Creative Commons licensing terms.
—Oyez will be updated regularly to account for new and old case descriptions and as the Court adds new cases to its docket.

Saving Audio offline Gone! — Rate 3-4 Stars.
I would have gave 5stars but I'm not able download audio from cases. Why?
I've been a big fan of Oyez's site for years. Because of that I gave this a 4star instead of 3star. The instruction text on the App Store profile. Is it from the old PocketJustice app? Honestly, I plan to delete the app without the download function.
Great Update - Almost Perfect
They just overhauled the app and it looks great. You have access to the audio transcripts, opinions, and general info of the Oyez database. A fantastic resource.
I'd give it 5 stars but they removed the most useful feature—the ability to save case audio for offline listening. Bring back the save feature and it'll be perfect!
Great app to learn about the Court
Oyez is a great app that lets you view cases of the Supreme Court and learn about them. It also has a section of biographies of all of the Justices from Jay to Kagan. UI is good and the content is great. Overall great app!
