I can look up cases, save them, and follow links to cites cases but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to navigate to a home screen or search page. Going back with either the in-app navigation arrows or Android back gesture just takes me back through recently urls and then the login. If there's a menu button or options screen it's hidden. The iPad app is great.

No integration with web alerts on your account. Cannot use a majority of Westlaw Edge functionality in app. Does not even recognize Westlaw pages opened outside the app to offer to open them in app. Very clunky overall. I had this app 8 years ago in law school. It's exactly like I remember. That's not a good thing...

Pointless. Just a separate app running the mobile website. No apparent features of any value. Clunky and slow. Save your storage space and just access WL through your browser.
