Historical Documents: There’s an app for that!

There’s an App for That, by Emily Long, Tech Insider (02/19/10).

MultiEducator Inc., a multimedia software developer, earlier this month released American Dreams, [$2.99] an iPhone/iPod application that compiles historical documents, speeches and Supreme Court decisions. The program [has] text versions of 480 speeches (including every inaugural address), 90 Supreme Court rulings and 18 audio recordings, which will expand as events occur and other historical documents are deemed worthy of inclusion.

…A quick search of the iTunes app store revealed [another app] U.S. Historical Documents [By Standard Works LLC, $.99, with “over 200 of the most influential documents in U.S. history”], which lets users search, bookmark and create inline notes. Other related apps compile information on members of Congress, presidents and famous speeches.
