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!

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.

Some critical features missing
This app is nearly everything that it needs to simulate the functionality of the desktop experience. But there are some significant drawbacks. It makes no sense that you can’t edit search terms after executing a search. Because this is a mobile platform, it is more likely that users will make mistakes entering a search string. Yet if you put together a long search string and one part is wrong, you have to go back and rewrite the entire search string. Inputting search strings is already incredibly cumbersome on a mobile device such as a phone or ipad, and requiring perfection the first time is a real annoyance. One other problem is that once a search is completed, it is difficult to navigate and work with the results. Navigating between different types of content (cases, secondary sources, rules, etc.) is extremely difficult. In addition, finding and locating filters for the content is also difficult. The navigation is not where it should be.

Broken App and Lexis Unresponsive
Not only has this app not been working for over 2 weeks, but I have repeatedly contacted Lexis Customer Support to try and correct the issue. As soon as I enter a case citation or term to search, the error message "Error occurred, please contact Lexis customer support" appears. Even after contacting customer support and going through basic trouble shooting of restarting and reinstalling the app, nothing has changed. Apparently the problem had to be escalated to an engineer, but over a week later it has not been fixed and customer service remains unresponsive to any updates or corrections to the problem. I am baffled that Lexis would even bother releasing an app that they are aware is broken and has significant problems.

Added features, works great!
This latest version works great, and I haven't seen any glitches in it yet. One if the most useful features is the ability to view content as a PDF document, including opening it in Adobe Reader in y iPad, saving it to my local files, or uploading it to google docs or other applications. There is also one-button printing to wifi-enabled printers.

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.

Does not work
I really like the lexis platform to do my legal research as a law school student. I was also really excited when I found out that Lexis Advance has an iPad app and immediately downloaded it. The only problem is that when I attempt to search a case it gives me an error message and tells me to call customer support. When I called customer support they told me that they did not have any way to troubleshoot the app other than sign in problems. This is mildly frustrating and hopefully they will soon release an update to fix this problem. Once this problem is fixed I am sure this will be a five star app.

It's really irritating that you can't filter by date for a search under secondary sources unless you choose the subcategory of law review articles first. Why deny such a useful function to an entire category? The excuse that its because treatises are updated regularly doesn't make sense to me. If its been updated recently, then yes, I do want that treatise in my results if I wish to filter by date. I'm also not a fan of every new result opening in a new tab. I spend too much time waiting for tabs to open/fully load and closing dozens of tabs. Lexis advance just doesn't flow smoothly for users.

Incredible Update
There is so much more functionality on this update it's ridiculous. They've added too many features to mention. It almost qualifies as a completely new app. I especially love that when I make notes and highlights on the documents in my folders via the actual website, I can see them in the app. So many new filters too! Amazing app.

Thanks for the new update! It works great! I'm able to email without any problems now. Sounds like some of the other new reviewers might not have installed the update as it was not a forced update this time.

Loosely functional
It’s fine for extremely basic needs, but this app could really be a game changer if it worked smoothly. Lexis is all gloss over a shoddy product. Not unlike WL in that respect. But an optimized Lexis app would put them miles ahead of WL. I want to click a link and it open a new tab, not redirect me from my current page. I’d like saving a page to a folder to work consistently. I’d like a less obstructive UI. I’d even pay for all of this. But right now, it’s just a crappy web reader.

I noticed most reviews of the app are from 6+ years ago, but in my experience thus far, its been fine. The app is occasionally slow and there are some basic issues that could probably be fixed or done better, but overall the app gets the job done.

App is great!
I have had the app since the first release which was good, but it seems even better after this first update. Love the amount of features available for conducting my research on the go or when I am away from my office and how it all shows up on my PC when I get back to work. I am looking forward to seeing what comes next!

Buggy and needs improvement to be usable
Crashes, five clicks required to highlight text and highlights fail half the time, highlighting doesn’t stay with the text you marked (!), saving cases to folder takes too long, internal navigation buttons between search filter folders etc make no sense, and many other problems. Okay as a tool to read research, but otherwise frustrating and wastes your time. Lexis, this app needs serious improvements to even be considered an alpha release. Please fix.

Remove and reinstall app to fix crashing
Lexis has done a great job with this app. But I was frustrated by the app crashing before it even launched. So I removed the app, downloaded it again from the App Store, and it works perfectly again. All my user information was retained, and I could start searching as soon as I opened the app.

Would switch from WestlawNext, but...
1. No search within document function (think Ctrl+F in a web browser). Dealbreaker. 2. Lack of Graphical Shepard's, which may be the primary thing Lexis does better. 3. Lexis-provided content on cases (headnotes, etc.) is too dependent on raw, unformatted, poorly laid-out text. I'm reading on an iPad a layout that looks (and probably is) pre-HTML. A little bit of formatting, tables, etc. would make it cleaner and reflect the fact that I didn't get the document from an 80s era fax machine whose pages have strips of little holes on the sides, separated from the document by perforated edges. That said, this is a big step forward from the web-based beta I used for a day last fall before switching to WestlawNext.

Bad interface prevents use
I am unable to search for cases on this app. When I am typing search terms, the suggestion bar appears in place of the keyboard while I type causing me to hit suggestions accidentally. I attempted to search Fourth Amendment issues surrounding consent. I was unable to finish typing "consent" and never got to the second item of "while intoxicated" or even just "intoxicated." Additionally, because I was unable to finish the word "consent," the suggestions were not useful.

I use Lexis Advance and this app everyday. It is simple and gives me access to quick and reliable legal research. PLUS, it has Shepards which is key. I cannot imagine a law student or practicing attorney who would not find this app time-saving and valuable.

Almost, but not quite.
Great update but for three issues that really make it a pain to use. Listed in order of declining importance (imho): 1) Seems that we cannot search WITHIN a document we have open. 2) The "Jump To" button doesn't seem to work. This is a big problem when I have opened a huge document and have to scroll through it to find whatever is meaningful. Wouldn't be as big a deal if not for lack of search. 3) It would be nice to be able to change the display font. Verdana or whateer this is looks hideous. Changing line heigh, margin width, etc., would also be appreciated.
