U.S. Constitution Analysis and Interpretation
This is a resourceful application to have for those who want one of the most important U.S. documents in their pocket. The design is simple yet effective with users able to go immediately to any part of the constitution from the main menu. Going from page to page of the document is quick and easy. Users can search the Constitution by keyword and open it to view in many other applications such as iBooks and Evernote. Users can even share specific pages with others. This is a application that is worthy of the document it is displaying.
Good Content. Terrible Format
This app is a PDF file version of a good solid reference book on Constitutional law and history that deserves to be better known.
The problem is that the app is a PDF file — of more than 3,000 pages. The text is impossible to read on an iPhone screen, and the app will not even go into landscape mode. There is a search function, but I can't find any hyperlinks except the table of contents. There is excellent content, but it is virtually inaccessible.
It is simply the best.
I have no problem using this App on iPad.
I can easily highlight, underline, and annotate everything in any color that I prefer. And, I can type my notes on the margins.
In addition, it has detailed explanation of every part of the constitution with reference to case laws.
