Very good design, but the options are a little limited. It's a very fast way to create a simple Will as the most obvious options are pre-filled for you. Easy to navigate to specific sections.

Overall Rating A+

The most comprehensive Will service (e.g. pet trusts, lifetime interest trusts). Has the strongest portfolio of supporting features like MyVault, LifeLocker, Keyholders. Fully responsive website so works on mobile devices. Also the least expensive.
C+

The website has a good clean design, with a reasonable set of options for a basic Will.
C+

The site has the best look and feel of all options. But it's by far the most expensive. It's actually more expensive than writing a Will with a lawyer in some cases.
B-

Expensive, but good user experience for someone who only needs a very basic Will. Limited flexibility and options within the service.
E

Deceptive pricing and dated user experience. Support was very limited.
