Thank You!

I have been a criminal defense attorney for over 32 years & I have used the old CDRom & newer desktop versions of CrimeTime for many years. Crime Finder for the iPad and iPhone are excellent compliments to CrimeTime. The interface and wealth of information are outstanding on the iPad app. In addition to providing sentencing ranges, Crime Finder provides one with the relevant law, collateral consequences, etc.

One suggestion if the limitations on apps permits, it would be great if enhancement & multiple count support could be added. I have already recommended Crime Finder to many of my colleagues and will continue to do so. Keep up the great work.

Very buggy app

Very useful app for criminal practitioners. However, the app is extremely buggy. I have had two problems with it. First, it seems incapable of smoothly transitioning from portrait to landscape mode -- something that's just fundamental to all iOS apps. Second, after paying the subscription fee on my iPad, my iPhone still asks me to pay another subscription fee! Not sure if this is their business plan, or just another bug. I wasn't happy about paying the $20 subscription fee in the first place, but it is well worth it for an app that works. Unfortunately, the app has only gotten worse after they introduced the subscription plan.
