What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed UI glitch, improvements to overall UI. General overhaul for 3.0
Text difficult to read
Useful application however the pages appear to have been "scanned on" and as a result the text is extremely tiny. Using the zoom facility enlarges the page however the perspective is lost making it very difficult to read. I have used the application in both landscape and portrait views which had
the same result hence the 3 stars
Great app, well done, shame it's available to idiots like Eurolover who clearly have nothing better to do than attend protests and winge about our police service!
Educational aid - fantastic!
This app is great help for school work as I am a public services student and this legislation is often a key topic within assignments and discussion, excellent reference aid - fantastic!
