For an app that pricey, I would hope it could do things that my wife refuses to. But, if it helps you pass the bar, then I guess it can do something she won't... :-/

It absolutely amazes me the amount of people saying they want to pirate this app and complain about the price. I'm going to bet that 99%, no 100% of the people complaining have NO USE WHATSOEVER FOR THIS APP. Similar to the Home Security app (mentioned in the article), this app has a very specific audience and market. To the rest of us, it's an app you can safely avoid. If the article rings true on how much content this app provides, then yeah I can see the $1000 tag on it. These bar exams are expensive. as. hell. It costs hundreds of dollars to even sign up for it and studying for them is an ordeal that takes months and months of preparation. If this app truly is a Hithiker's Guide to anything bar related, I can imagine it can become an invaluable tool to those going for Law.
I don't have any experience on law, but if its anything like Engineering, where the EI exam is around $200 (right when you finish undergrand), and the PE is $400, not even counting the guides, books, and resources you NEED to even have a chance of passing them, you easily spend over $1000-2000 certifying yourself. Then again, we make the big bucks after so we can afford it

Well at least it backs up the price with a load of useful info instead of just a picture of a damn red gemstone."Spaceships don't come equipped with rear view mirrors..." -Andre Benjamin the 3000th

If you think about it though.. Photographers are willing to pay about that price for software like photoshop and what not. If this is something a college law student wanted to pursue then something like this wouldn't be so bad if there books were above 1k. I can see the use for a dedicated student striving for excellence and to study anytime anywhere but not for the average law student...

Yes, I'm gonna study for an exam that i paid so much to college to learn it wasted many years of my life on an iphone, this is the dumbest thing ever, study from books and stuff, use the iphone as a supplement not the whole thing

My lawyer charges $250 per phone call and if a $1000 app proved useful for lawschool then I would buy it.

if law school students didnt need this before the app came out, they dont need it now.
$1000 is obnoxiously outrageous, coming from a student in a family of law school graduates.-[r]
if you can, please [thank] me if i helped you or you liked what i said! :]

Being able to carry all that around with you and access it easily could very well be worth $1000 to law students - especially if the equivalent in books cost $4000!
Anyone willing to steal this app has already failed their legal exams as they obviously don't understand the law.
There are lots of apps in the app store that are of no interest to me - but just because I'm not interested does not mean others aren't.
Not sure why a specialised app aimed at a small target audience is news or why people are getting so worked up about it.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Now someone just needs to make one for the DAT, MCAT, PCAT, and the OAT, then they'll be in business! Or make an ultimate app that contains all of those and call it the Kaplan App (Kap App for short). Maybe that would be worth $1,000! Haha.
