Customer Reviews

App ok. No search

Well I was able to look up Termagant and that makes the app ok.

However no search returns anything and there is no quick scroll within letter.

Termagant - (TERM-a-gant) describes someone of violent temper who is always easy to goad into a fight, or always read for some kind of conflict.

Great concept. Search bar doesn't work

If the search bar actually worked, and you didn't have to scroll thru every word; it would be much better.

First try fail

Since annotated versions for electronic Shakespeare are rare I thought this would be useful. However, it failed on the first try- tried searching "hurly-burly" from Macbeth and no result found. Yet it's in their dictionary. Does not give one great confidence this will be a useful tool.
