Please note that I did not write this, but gathered the text, notes, and annotations from a variety of sources, but mostly Steve Mount's www.usconstitution.net (best constitution site on the web). I just wanted a handy, self-contained reference to the US Constitution.
Navigation thru sections of the constitution or articles of confederation is done using the D-pad or track ball of your device if equipped, or by swiping your finger left or right across the screen.
Selecting text will work best if you have a trackball or your device. I am still trying to work out how to selected text while using just your finger (this does not work well with the 'gestures' feature).
This application can be found in the Android Marketplace under "Books & Reference".
