The Federalist Papers

Initial Release January 2011
Latest version: 1.0.10, January 2017

The Federalist Papers would have been a natural choice for inclusion in the American DNA section of the United States Constitution app found in the Android Market. I did not nclude it because it would have doubled the size of the that app and I want to maintain a little size discipline, so to speak. So after many request I created The Federalist Papers. It's not annotated like the Constitution, but it does contain a search feature which should make personal analysis a little easier. I'll be making improvements as I go of course, so for now enjoy! 

Latest News:

Fixed the basic navigation (paging through the document by flinging your finger across the text). Now working on the search function which seems to return the user to the main page on every selection.
