  • Issue With Today's Upgrade

    By Eugene Pagano
    The New York Civil Practice Law and Rules has not been updated since 2016. That makes it unreliable and useless. In contrast the Bluebook file seems continuously need re-downloading.
  • The bluebook insists my subscription has run

    By champ flapjack
    I find no means of renewing, no way to access the bluebook. I bought the app. I want the bluebook, i paid for it.
  • Great when it works.

    I got this app to use the bluebook for a class. The experience is frustrating at best. The app will work for a while and then crash. I need to remove and reload for it to work again. The process doesn’t take long but it happens multiple times a night. I have taken screenshots of the more frequently used pages to avoid using the app when I can.
  • Nothing Loads???

    Downloaded App, followed instructions to click on Library and... nothing... Signed Out - Closed App again nothing. I have a screen shot if the developer wants to view it. Pretty disappointing..
  • Charged for an update I can’t upload

    I recently purchased and was charged an update (California Rules of Professional Conduct);however, I am unable to open the update.
  • 100% Useless

    By bosscrypto2boss
    Probably the most useless app ever made.
  • Bugs fixed, good customer support

    By PV29
    When it works, this app is very useful. When it works. Usually it freezes and needs to be closed and restarted. Updates take forever to download and install. It’s easier for me to just open a book. UPDATE: The developer took the time to contact me and informed me that the app had been improved. The issues listed above have been addressed and the app is very useful. Kudos to the developer.
  • I paid $40 for the bluebook on an app that keeps crashing

    By Nskaosmsizismsd
    Don't waste your time! I paid $40 to access the bluebook on here and I'm in the middle of needing it for a paper and the app keeps crashing. This is ridiculous!
  • Great app

    By Dshanktu
    The old version had some problems, but the app works great now. Very helpful.
  • Finally fixed issue! (Old Update did not Work!!!)

    By mhmalin
    This is an update to my one star review dated from when casemaker took over this app. I am glad to report that the app works again including working off line. However, the earlier product was cleaner and easier to use, so I still consider it a little bit of a step back. However, The last debacle with the update totally not functioning has left a bad taste in my mouth. I am a professional and I need apps I can rely on. The solution from Casemaker took weeks and professionals need to know that an app will be there when it is needed. However, it works now, so upgrade to 4 stars.
