Really good and free! Get a bit of culture, great app 4 ur mobile phone!
A fantastic app that I have used for years back and forth. It really is solid for all kinds of poetry and I love the SPIN feature that randomly gives you different poems of different categories. One thing though, I really wish the UI was updated. It’s been the same forever.
Love the website... the app is lacking
the layout is outdated and feels clunky, things r not intuitive. Needs update
