How often do you update the laws in each app?
We attempt to update our high selling apps with their additions, changes, and deletions once per year. As you may be aware, every state updates its laws at various times throughout the year. Some update them constantly while others update at the rate of once every two years. We can say the more requests we receive for a state, the more likely it will be that we will publish an updated version.

Will you be charging for future updates when states update their laws?
Yes... eventually. Although this may seem like a simple process, the fact is it takes time and resources to pull together each app. To date, we have not charged a fee for any updates to laws within a state. We wanted to show the consumer exactly what we could accomplish.

In all fairness, however, we cannot continue to update year after year without at least some return for effort. As a price comparison, there are smaller books that fit in your pocket which highlight the most commonly used laws by state. They typically cost at least double what we charge and it costs that much each time you purchase a new copy, i.e. - each year. A full-fledged searchable reference (in most cases) of state laws for a small cost of $5 is a very competitive price, even if you must purchase a new copy once a year.

How long does it take to fix an issue?
True bugs, where the application is functioning incorrectly, are our top priorities. After that, we focus on missing laws-- content in existing applications which has been reported to us. Note that "missing laws" does not necessarily mean sections of code we purposely do not include due to difficulties in obtaining it. We also may focus on adding new states, depending on the demand, or add new functionality to our existing applications.

Unfortunately we cannot provide guaranteed response times. We receive prompt notification of issues via email but since Nomos Applications is not our primary business, it may take several days or even weeks to address core bugs.

Can you add city, county, or other sets of codes (for example: ordinances, court rules)?
Generally we will not add anything other than state laws. However, if we have enough interest in a city, county, or other set of rules or regulations, we will certainly consider it. Our customer base must show enough interest so that it makes economical sense. If we do not have sufficient interest at our typical cost of $5, we may end up charging more. Please send us an email with your suggestions. Ask your friends to also send us an email so we can determine the amount of interest.

How reliable is your content?
Members of our team work in law enforcement. We understand how important it is to have accurate information. Our content generally is as reliable as publically available websites. However, we must provide this disclaimer:

Although efforts have been made for accuracy, substantive errors or differences may remain. It is the user's responsibility to verify the legal accuracy of all text. No one is liable for any loss or damage resulting from errors resulting from any defect in, or misuse of, any software or equipment.

How can I provide feedback?
You can provide feedback to us in a couple of ways. First, you can visit our Support Page on this website. Also, most of our application provide an email link from the Info page. Go to the main table of contents, click on info, and click on provide feedback.

Do you guys do this full time?
As much as we want to, no. We all depend on other full-time primary jobs. That's why you may experience a delay to your feedback or inquiries. We do, however, read all email.

What is the meaning behind “Nomos?”
In Greek Mythology, Nomos was the spirit of law -- a perfect description of our applications.
