Customer Reviews

The best Shakespeare app by far

The best thing is the search. There’s no better way to find something. The study materials are great too. This is a must-have app for anyone who likes Shakespeare or wants to know more.

Love the app

Since purchasing the pro edition, I've not been receiving the nightly scheduled quotes. Would like that feature to be fixed. Many thanks. :)

*update*
Thanks for fixing it! Fantastic! :D

Quote of the day doesn't work

It's just blank. It's only worked twice in a few weeks.

Otherwise, good app.
