• Ability to email any document and it will contain all of your inline notes and colored highlights.
• Uses our innovative paragraph slider to instantly scroll to any point in a document - it works similar to the alphabet slider in the Contacts app.

No social media support

Compact way to carry a nifty reference for important U.S. documents, but all you can do is read it on your iPod or email it - no way to FB wall it or twitter highlights. Plus, turns out 'Standard' is really LDS, or the Mormons, which I didn't know when I sent them my 'purchase' money. As an atheist female, I'm a bit peeved. I would have bought a different app. I also want to post to Facebook to argue with my religious right Tea Party relatives who hate everybody except white males who they believe are the chosen of god and everyone else are inferiors. Mostly, they've never read any of these documents, but get their info from Fox News.

Awesome content; any content updates?
