Love this resource!

Great to have this on your person at all times. Waiting for an iOS 11 update!

Stopped working in iOS 11.

Looks like the iPad version of this app is as just updated for iOS 11 but the iPhone version is still dead. Why isn’t this a universal app?

Fails at true purpose

This is a nice app with good features including facts about the signers. Sadly the document itself has multiple errors in the transcription that seem small but have huge consequences to those who take the document seriously.

Great app!

Has interesting information in the notes. Every American should have this app on their phone.


Keep up the good work. In Liberty, RJT

Wish I would have found it earlier

This app has brought together insight to such an important document of the American society. It is well articulated and easy to navigate, and the best part is that it's free!

The Declaration of Independence. Portable.

The Declaration of Independence of the United States of America. What more needs to be said? As I stated with the Constitution app, I am glad this is a free product, as everyone should be at least familiar with the Declaration of Independence, even if much of its wording is sometimes difficult to follow. Granted, it probably isn't a high priority app for most people to get, but it's definitely very well-done and does more than just present the text of the document.

Boy scouts

I used this app to help me in cit in the nation. Helpful! One closer to star rank!

Helped with school

I needed to know some of the declaration of independence so I looked it up and it works great. Better yet I can us me cell in class because of reading it!!!

Ima history buff

I've read all the documents that are important and this one is always been my favorite


National Treasure made me get this app LOL. The only thing is if you could control the zoom to see the text better. Other than that I love this app :)



Great Resource

Carrying around a mobile version of the Declaration of Independence, along with the Constitution (another app by the same developer), is great and this app makes it easy to read/navigate. Included are notes that detail some of the events that took place during the Constitutional Convention.


I found this out from my family that I am a direct descendant of Abraham Clark's brother. I don't know but I think that's pretty cool!!

Thank you guys for making these app!



Very good app to help Americans learn about their history !

Wonderful Resource

I've had this app and its sister, the one for the Constitution, basically since you guys created it. Very simple to use, well laid-out. Both very nice free apps and extremely useful in a pinch (it's happened to me more than once!). If I could give you a 4.5, I would-- the ONLY thing I would like to see is a "Layman's Terms" option. It's great to be able to see the real documents, as well as actually read them and get some historical background in the Notes section (and I agree with Samdad77 that the bios are a thoughtful touch), but sometimes slogging through legalese from the 1700s is difficult when trying to look up something quickly. I would suggest having a detailed "translation," if you will, of the exact text as well as an abridged version for quick browsing. Overall, however, I find both apps very useful and tastefully designed. Well done :)

A Must Have

The signers bios are a great touch.

An app. offered for free by true patriots!

Thank you for making this app. free! Everyone should have this on their phone!

Pretty good!!!

The app is pretty good, overall love that I have the entire document in my pocket. But NEEDS A WAY FOR U TO ZOOM IN ON THE ORIGINAL AND REVISED DOCUMENT!!! Was kinda upset that I couldn't do that. But it's really good overall (just fix that).


Its so cool to view it and stuff and one of my antsistors put there name on it

Very nice app

Some good information and you get some history of the signees. Only 4 stars because, and I'm being picky, is that nothing would be better than reading the origial document rather than standard text but without zoom it's not possible. Still nice to see the original in all it's glory.

America I guess :)

I love God, classic rock and Glenn beck also Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "Have you no shame? Have you no decency?" that was an incredible speech and shame on you Iran, you will get what you deserve in due time. Rock on :)

A Must Have

Get it. Everyone should have the Declaration of Independance with them. To have the luxury now of having it with us on our iPhones is just another reason the iPhone is the genius electronic product of the decade...


Washington needs to study this. Maybe they will all learn something that they've seemed to have forgotten.


It is simply great to know that there was a time in this nation's history that people understood properly the meaning to liberty, freedom, justice etc. Today, I can scarcly find one soul in 500 who actually has more concern about what congress is cooking with this national energy tax aka cap and trade and this health care reform bill. These two acts of congress, if pAssed and signed by Obama, will negate much of what was fought for some 230 years ago.

Pretty cool

It's good to read every now and then for perspective. Great to have on the iPhone in case any British people you know feel compelled to tell you their opinions about US politics.


Great app

Neat app

This is a document that every American citizen should read. Making it easy to access will encourage more people to look at it.

Declaration of Independence & Bagwell are Beautiful!

God bless the US and God bless Clint Bagwell Consulting! Thank you so much! And thank you for creating an application that allows us to reacquaint ourselves with our rights (which we all badly need) and for not even charging us for your good, hard work. Again, may God bless you and may God bless the United States of America!

Great App

Great App, like someone said, should be included as a default on all USA sold Iphones&Ipod Touch's. And hey, it's free so why not get it? :)

The App That Deserves To Be Free

I know everyone loves a Free App. But if any app deserved to be free, it's this one. Thank you for not charging Americans the right to see their rights!

Great way to show off to your old teacher!

You know how fifth grade teachers normaly teach United States history? Well I showed this app to my fifth grade teacher from last year, and she was so "proud" of me that she gave me a box full of Jolly Ranchers!

Fantastic, but needs more history in the next update.

The Declaration has a lot more history than some people realize; - The first, largest, and most famous signature is that of John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress. His signature is such that King George 3 could read the name without the aid of glasses. - The youngest signer was Edward Rutledge of South Carolina(age 26). Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania(age 70) was the oldest. - Two future presidents signed: John Adams (second President) and Thomas Jefferson (third President). - On June 11, 1776, Congress appointed a "Committee of Five", consisting of John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, Robert R. Livingston of New York, and Roger Sherman of Connecticut, to draft a declaration. - Thomas Jefferson was appointed by the other four members of the committee to write the first draft, which he completed in 17 days. - The committee presented this copy to the Congress on June 28, 1776. The title of the document was "A Declaration by the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress assembled." - July 4, 1776, is actually the day the wording of the Declaration was approved by Congress. - Due to the Revolutionary war the document was signed individually and in secrecy. - Thomas Jefferson and John Adams published a book titled the “Journals of Congress” claiming the document was signed on that same day. - The “Journals of Congress” was published over a year later recounting the events of July 4, 1776 - In 1796, signer Thomas McKean disputed the claim that the Declaration had been signed on July 4, pointing out that some signers were not present that day, including several who were not even elected to Congress until after July 4. - McKean's version of the story gained support when the Secret Journals of Congress were published in 1821 - The actual signing of the Declaration took place after the New York delegation had been given permission to support independence, which allowed the Declaration to be proclaimed as the unanimous decision of the thirteen states. - Retitled on July 19, 1776 as "The unanimous declaration of the thirteen United States of America" - Most of the delegates who signed did so on August 2, 1776, although some eventual signers were not present and added their names later.

Love it

Should be included by default on all US sold iPhone

Good Work

I have all the company's applications, both free and pay, and thank them for providing these important documents in a good format and at a low price.
