“I'm very impressed by what this app can do.” “It includes all of the features that you would want.” iPhone J.D.

“What helps set rulebook apart from its competition is the fact that you can treat it like you would a paper version of the rules. You can highlight sections (there are a few different highlight colors to choose from), make notes on sections, and bookmark sections. . . .” Third Apple

“Rulebook is well worth picking up and using.” MacLitigator

Works on iPhone, but not iPad

I downloaded the Bluebook a few years ago on both devices and had no problem viewing it on either one. I have been having problems with my downloaded Rulebook™ content showing up on the iPad library page, but the content is there when I perform a search. The iPhone version still works quite well, with all of my federal court rules updating themselves to their most current 2016 versions.

5 on iPhone, 0 on iPad = 2.5 average

Works like a dream of all dreams on iPhone. On iPad it's worse than non-existent since you keep thinking it will work and you waste way too much time trying to get it to work. It doesn't. That iPhone, though 😻.

Do not get, does not work

I got this because I paid for an online subscription to the Bluebook. I was supposed to be able to use this app to access the Bluebook, but it says "unavailable." In fact, I saw no viewable content of any kind. This app is garbage, don't download it.
