Shakespeare Pro is a great literature resource app that includes all Shakespeare’s works, that is 41 plays, 154 sonnets and 6 poems, and doubtful works. It is usually $9.99, and is free for limited time.
When you open the app, you see a menu on the left side. In the menu, you will see items like Works, Concordance search, Glossary, Facts, and more.
For Shakespeare’s works, you will see thumbnails of the works sorted alphabetically by the titles. Tapping on one of the thumbnail will bring up the content of the selected piece. Within each, you will see several tabs: Dramatic Personae, Acts with each act takes one tab, Scene Breakdown, and Folio.
You can select to have line numbers shown on the screen, decide between Long or short character names shown, you can pick the font and size you like.
You can add notes while you are reading, and you can read with your notes shown on the right, or not shown at all. You can search a particular scene or dialogue by character name or key words. You can bookmark certain page if you want to come back to it. You can share your notes and bookmarks with a friend or classmates.
If you use Concordance search, the app will provide the places the search term is used across all Shakespeare’s works. Great for research.
The integrated Glossary is based on the lexicon by David & Ben Crystal. It provides definitions in context, not just a general definition.
I love to scroll through the portraits to see those famous Shakespeare pictures.
Quotes is also an interesting place to visit once a while. It have random quotes from Shakespeare’s works.
