Ratings and Reviews
Θαύμα ιδέσθαι (a wonder to behold)!
This is a wonderful app. I love having Homer in my pocket wherever I go. The only thing I would wish for is a full concordance search for the original Greek (please!)
Not very useful
I got this to study the Ancient Greek version, so that's the only part I'm reviewing. This is woefully incomplete. Even very basic features are lacking, such as:
* translation lookup;
* interlinear translation;
* rapid navigation within a book--it takes a lot of scrolling to get to line 800, for example.
Until this app becomes something more than a simple scrape of data from more suitable Web sites, it doesn't deserve more than one star.
Distracted By Ads
This would be a better app if the Ads were not included. Immediately I am distracted from the text. And worst of all, their use illustrates a tital lack of respect for the work, the artists and the genre. One star is too much.
