What’s New

Version 7.3.1


This is a small update to fix a bug with the Quote of the Day. If you have any trouble get in touch with us at support@playshakespeare.com.

For Shakespeare Pro users, we've added the Sir Thomas More facsimile. If you're a Pro user, here are some of our latest highlights:

• NEW! Ask Siri to recite a random sonnet from the collection of 154 sonnets
• NEW! Ask Siri to recite a random quote from a collection of over 400 quotes.
• NEW! The First Quarto of King Lear is now included. The Shakespeare Pro app already contains the entire First Folio in original spelling, but now we've added an important Quarto.
• NEW! Comparison view: You can view any First Folio version side by side with the modern of the play. Even compare Folio and Quarto in the same view.
• NEW! Use any play as a cue script: just choose your character in the Character Highlighting settings.
• NEW! New settings to show/hide the top & bottom bars on iPad

Orly...

Huh... I've been told by devs that the free version (which I've had for about a decade) never had line numbers. I don't think that's accurate... but let's give them the benefit of the doubt... Because line numbers don't exactly make or break the app. So I'm emending my rating to 5 stars.

Would be really annoying to discover it did, at some point, have line numbers (which I seem to remember)... I will check some of my ancient iphone backups, and rate accordingly.

In the meantime... Please (re-)institute line numbers. It's a basic feature of the format, it's not a 'bonus' in any fair sense of the word. Thanks.

No, we have never taken away any feature in 10 years! Line numbers are only available in the Pro upgrade. So you might have lost your upgrade or there might be another bug. Don't hesitate to get in touch with support to help sort it out: support@playshakespeare.com.

I can’t read anything :(

I’ve had this app for years now and use it as a reference all the time. As of late it’s been crashing. Every time I try to utilize it in some way, a few seconds pass and it boots me out. I love the app— I advertise it to anyone who loves Willy Shakes because of the quotes and it’s convenience, but now it’s practically useless. I don’t really know how to rate this, because the app itself deserves a 5 star, but the functionality is awful right now, so please fix or at least look into it!

Very useful

This is perfect for my current project and has Been very helpful. Search function is key and though it needs a tweak as Othello seems to be off a bit, and the poems etc don't get excluded when you narrow a search, it is still remarkably useful. Now they need to add some more of the apocryphal texts--Arden of Faversham was recently included as in part by WS by Oxford I think, and there are several still under suspicion of him helping on. But this couldn't have come at a better time for me.
