What Shakespeare fan wouldn't want it?

The app is excellent. It works well, provides everything that you need to immerse yourself in Shakespeare's plays, has an excellent glossary and superb, scene by scene recensions for those who want some orientation before they read the play itself. It could be improved if there were more expert annotation, and some of the best secondary sources also included, but that is asking a lot because of copyright restrictions and costs. Otherwise, it is just right.

Eine absolut großartige Applikation, vor allem dann, wenn man(n) eine Dame mit einem Sonett im englischen Original beeindrucken möchte. Es ist schon sehr faszinierend, dass man die Werke des größten (zumindest englischen) Dichters auf seinem iPhone haben kann. Und das auch noch kostenlos. Für mich eines der besten Apps bisher.

Einfach großartig!

Ich erinnere mich daran, wie ich im Londoner Globe-Theatre saß, Timon of Athens sah, und direkt im Anschluss an die Vorstellung bestimmte Passagen dank dieser App sofort nachlesen konnte!
Wenngleich man es auch nur selten braucht: dank seiner geringen Größe ist es schon fast eine Pflicht-App, und ich wünschte, es gäbe mehr dieser Art - wo bleiben Goethe, Schiller, Lessing, Moliere, etc!?
