Judge42 is a MTG rules document viewer. The Comprehensive Rules, Infraction Procedure Guide, Magic Tournament Rules, and Judging at Regular documents are all included.
Each document can be browsed through a hierarchical menu system in order to locate specific sections quickly. All documents can be searched simultaneously or individually as well.
Extensive formatting from the original documents is kept intact, and additional color highlighting allows the documents to be even more readable.
Hotlinks in the Comprehensive Rules allow quick navigation between various rules sections.
There is no external database to update. All documents are included inside of the app itself and will update as the app updates.
Also included in the menu is a handy decklist counter for verifying deck totals, as well as a draft timer.

Requires Android 1.6 (Donut), 2.1 (Eclair), 2.2 (Froyo), 2.3 (Gingerbread), 3.0 (Honeycomb), 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), or 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
On the main screen are a variety of buttons: two per document. One button toggles searching that particular document on or off.
The other button jumps directly to the table of contents for that document.
Your choices of which documents to search are remembered if you exit and restart the app.
Search all selected documents at once by entering any number of keywords into the search box and then pressing the Search button.
All keywords must be found for a particular section of a document to be matched, but they can be matched in any order.
When browsing document sections from a search, all keywords will be highlighted throughout the text.
Any section of text can be copied to the clipboard by long pressing on the block of text.
Don't forget, there is a handy decklist counter and draft timer available in the standard app menu.
