Crashes especially on amendments!
I had high hopes for this app, but I am disappointed. While I have not gone through all of the documents and speeches, I searched enough names to find a curious lack of diversity. One would think that, from the app title, that Dr. King's most famous speech, at least, would be there. It is not. There is no Black Elk, Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee. There is no Frederick Douglas. There are no women represented. According to this app, only white males said anything worth knowing about.
I give it four stars because I haven't used this app for very long. While looking over it I was very impressed with the amount of documents that this app contains. Also having wonderful videos and audio of important speeches. There will be some some typo's as you look through but nothing too distracting. You can also extract the documents and save them to your iPad. You can also email them as well. Overall I am very impressed and the app will only continue to get better with updates.
