If you are looking for an up-to-date resource that will bring you a library of text such as the U.S. Constitution and the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure to your iPhone or iPad, then LawStack is a great app for that!
This app comes pre-loaded with some of the basics you'll need as a lawyer or legal professional, and it only takes up 13 MB of space on your iOS device. You'll find this app in the Reference category of the App Store where it is available for free, with some in-app purchases for State codes and procedures.
LawStack comes packed with the US Constitution and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Criminal Procedure, Appellate Procedure, Evidence, and Bankruptcy Procedure. Other State codes can also be added via in-app purchases at nominal prices ranging from $1.99 to $9.99, but when you consider how much this app brings to the palm of your hand, the costs of the in-app purchases are completely justified.
If you find that some of the text you're looking for is not available, you can make a request to the developers, who promise that the most-requested items will be made available.
What's more is that once you've downloaded the files, you won't need to be connected to the Internet in order to view them.
Users can search through the entire text they have available in the basic app as well as their purchases, or choose to search just the headers to find what they're looking for. The app also keeps a search history so in case you lose some text you've found with great difficulty, you will be able to find it again with ease.
When you open up a searched item, your search term or terms will be highlighted each time they appear within the text. You can then choose to bookmark, email, or print the section from within the app!
