Fastcase was more than I could have asked for. The app is absolutely free, which was unexpected, but great . The online site has even more tools, etc. Their support response is quick, and knowledgeable. Every legal research app I have tried, either cost a ridiculous amount of money, or doesn't give any real information , cases, or even relevant subjects. Fastcase continues to do all of this, and more. I gave come to rely on Fastcase, and uit hasn't let me down yet. I recommend this app to all.

Great app but I can't download on my computer or tablet. It only works on my phone. Would be great if I could see on a larger screen
