Canadian Law Apps FAQs
We started working on these Law Apps in March, 2010. We went live on the Internet on June 2, 2010 with 30 Apps.
These are the first Canadian Law Apps in Canada.
No, you can only buy these Law Apps through our site. These apps are Web Apps and not Native Apps as are found on the Apple iStore. There are advantages and disadvantages for each of Web Apps and Native Apps.
We decided to develop Web Apps rather than native apps because Web Apps work with all the major cell phones such as the BlackBerry and the Google Android phones as well as the iPhone.
We have programmed the Law Apps to be stored on the cache memory of your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. If you are going into an important meeting where there is no WiFi or Internet access we suggest you do the following so you can be sure your App will be available:
Changes we make to fix bugs or any other enhancements we make to the Apps will automatically be available to you.
We have programmed the Web Apps so that when you load them from your Home Screen they will automatically check to see if they have the latest version. If they don't, then the latest version will be uploaded to the App. The next time you start the App the updates will be available.
Yes, you can try out one of our Law Apps before you buy. Please tap here to take your test drive.
Your licence only allows the app you purchased to be used by you, but it does allow you to use the app on multiple devices. When you get your access link email it to an email address on the device on which you want the app loaded.
Note: You must do this within 24 hours of receiving the link as it expires after 24 hours.
