So it costs more to get the electronic version than in traditional print which uses more resources.
NF still can't understand profit is in the transmission, not the medium.

Still $5 for the book, $1 for Apple.

Yes, it's a universal app, so the download includes an iPad and an iPhone version.

I bought it and it renders fine on my phone. The entire rule book and case book is there and they're both keyword searchable.

$5.99 seems like a fair price, to me. For me, it's worth more than the print version because of the indexing done as well as the searching capabilities. And again, you also get the case book.

It would be nice if they had an Android app for baseball. The only NHFS app for Android is for Basketball.

to find the Basketball book, search for NFHS on the android marketplace.

To be fair on the cost for the app based book, there are one time costs to translate the book into the app, adding the indexes, links, etc. A significant labor effort will have to have been spent testing, making certain all the links work, etc, so the one time costs could be in the $Ks. More than they had with creating a PDF that they have done in the past. So they had to price the book based on expected sales rate to cover those one time costs.

Of course, if every official, coach, and over zealous dad buys a copy, then this will be a significant profit item for the NFHS.

I also hope that the android versions will follow soon as it did for basketball.

Free Searchable PDF available here

Below is the link to the 2012 NFHS baseball rulebook in a searchable PDF!

A bunch of hardwork went into this and depending on the response other baseball and softball books will be made available.

That is a blind link everyone, I highly encourage you to stay away from it.

Regardless of how you try to justify it, it's illegal for you to distribute this.
