The #1 mobile law library app.

“I'm very impressed by what this app can do.” “It includes all of the features that you would want.” iPhone J.D.

“What helps set rulebook apart from its competition is the fact that you can treat it like you would a paper version of the rules. You can highlight sections (there are a few different highlight colors to choose from), make notes on sections, and bookmark sections. . . .” Third Apple

“Rulebook is well worth picking up and using.” MacLitigator

What’s New

Version 3.0.3

Thank you for being a Rulebook user!  In this update:
* Now you can find a word on the page you are viewing by pulling the screen down to reveal a search field.  Pull the screen down by putting your finger on the title of the page and pulling downward.  You can also use this feature to jump to a different rule in the book you are viewing.  Of course, you can still search an entire book or across your entire library by accessing the search feature from the menu.
* You can sort your books in any order you wish by tapping on the up and down arrow icon on the home screen and then dragging the horizonal lines next to the book title up or down.  You can also drag your most used books all the way up to the My Favorites section for easier access.
* You can open up the menu either by tapping on the menu icon at the top of the page, or, from the home screen, swiping the page from left to right.
* Bug fixes to make Rulebook an even greater resource for you.
