I wrote here in October about the launch of Lexis Advance for Solos, the LexisNexis flat-rate legal research platform for one- and two-lawyer firms. This week, Lexis rolled out a new app that allows lawyers who subscribe to Advance to use it from their iPhones.

The app lets you search by text or citation “instantly,” meaning that you do not have to select a specific content type or jurisdiction. If you prefer, you can first narrow a search by content type, jurisdiction or topic.

The app can also be used to Shepardize cases and statutes to determine whether they are still good law and to find other authorities that cite them.

The app includes Work Folders to save documents, searches, citations and Shepard’s results.

The app is free but you will need to be an Advance subscriber to use it.
