Even though it’s free, the Shakespeare app is packed with these impressive features:

••• CUSTOMIZE YOUR READING EXPERIENCE by choosing from a variety of color combinations, change the font family and size, and jump around to different scenes.

••• QUALITY TEXTS are a top priority and our team spent years compiling and editing the best references available. In the updated editions, the text is even more clear and each individual character is uniquely identified—all 1,155 of them.

••• DETAILED SCENE BREAKDOWNS give you an overview of the scenes within each play, their locations, and the characters present in each.

••• THE SHAKESPEARE PASSPORT® is your virtual ticket to events and exhibitions all over the world. Just show the passport on your device for great benefits at participating venues. More information at ShakespearePassport.com.

••• BARDFIND™ is the easiest way to find a Shakespeare theatre or venue anywhere in the world.

Okay...

ohmanitsmarymay

pointless, and, kind of odd.but it is educational, even if most people dont normally care about education, which they should.but hey, its free, and you can't beat that.

Great in theory...

But buggy in execution. Once you access an Act in any of the plays, the ability to scroll is intermittent; and since there is no search function, find a particular passage is almost impossible.

Buggy, fair... but the value is amazing.

Derick Valadao

There is no doubt in my mind that this is a fantastic value for an education application. For free you get a wonderful helping of classics which would normally cost you around 50 bucks in a book store. While you CAN get this for free at Project Gutenberg, this is a very well put together version which I prefer far more to the Gutenberg release. I look forward to seeing this platform develop. Keep up the good work.
