Thought provoking documents & photos However, on my tablet, the keyboard pops up at opening the app, and with every swipe to page forward or back: a little annoying. Also, it would be nice to be able to pinch to zoom in on the docs as some are too small to read. Since you cannot, this necessitates going to the website via the "i" button to be able to make out the text. Not always a bad thing, but turns it into a surf, rather than a quick look. And I agree with the user who said an (optional) daily pop-up reminder would be nice.

App is simple but attractive.knocked down a star for the permissions. Will spread the word if permissions are changed.

Great authenticity of factual and unaltered piece of the United States of America's history. These are the ideals and motivation that protect us from corruption and ill-guided leadership. Yes, these are the truths we hold dear to our hearts, that we may have the strength to withstand terrony. God bless America!! To give great emotion is like living.....

Nice little app I appreciate nice, free historical apps like this. It's really nicely done, and hasn't frozen on me or had any problems. The only issues it has really have to do with viewing these images on a little phone screen. I zoom in as best I can on the phone and then try to find the image online later.

Fantastic What you can learn from afar, when you didn't when you were actually there.

American History on my phone! I am happy man.

Agree with comment below. Why not include the original AND a version that's actually legible? Maybe even include a brief overview of the document.

Very fidgety app. If the document is there, fine. If not, then what? No direction on how to navigate the site.

A Google User

History every day A great app for a daily dose of history. Good way to access historical information in primary document form.

A Google User

I love this app ... very informative, easy to use. I didn't give 5 stars because it's so slow loading every time I open it and every time I zoom in.

It crashes as it launches. Neat idea, poorly implemented. It also crashed on my friends phone. And yes we both sent in the error report.

As an historian and a former member of the Nixon Presidential Materials Staff, I rate this app as the most unequaled of all the Archive downloads.

A Google User

Won't move to SD card. Love this and will reinstall when storage options change. The US Govt. photos app can be stored on the SD card - this can too. Thanks for making these available.

David Beatham

To small It looks cool but I couldnt get it big enough to read on my phone screen

Eric Beckman

Searchable database How about a comprehensive list of documents important to american history. Also make it searchable.
