Tap into the world’s most advanced legal research service wherever you go! The Westlaw app – available for iPad and iPhone – is the most awarded legal research app as voted by industry professionals and recognized by the National Law Journal, The Recorder, The Best of the Midwest, and more. Access Westlaw features such as WestSearch, Keycite, Folders, History, Notes, and Highlighting, which have all been redesigned for both the iPad and iPhone.
“The Westlaw app is very well-designed and easy to use, making it simple to get legal research done when you are in court or otherwise out of the office. In fact, the app is so nice that I will often use it even when I am in my office, doing my legal research on the iPad while my brief is open on my computer.” – Jeff Richardson, iPhone J.D. in ABA Journal

Westlaw should read these reviews and make this application useful. As it stands right now, it's useless. There is no split screen mode which permits using it with Microsoft word, cannot view table of contents for secondary sources and it is extremely limited. One would think that with Westlaw charging exorbitant fees and saving costs by outsourcing all of its tech support jobs to the Philippines that it would make such an important application useful. Time to switch to lexis advance.
Buggy and hard to use
Makes you log in again after like 2 minutes of being out of the app. Doesn't have any hyperlinks to useful headnotes. Needs serious work. Barely useable as is
Requires me to "re-authenticate" if I leave the app for more than a minute. Then I lose whatever I was reading. Not very conducive to research on-the-go.
