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

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

Takes up too much space

This is a great app but takes up far too much space on the iPad for what it does. Could we please have an option to download the plays we want instead of being given all of them automatically or an option to delete the plays we don't want.
Why does this app take up so much space any way it just contains text files and a few covers of plays.
Please reduce the download size of the app as I feel tempted to delete it.

I agree

Even if you don't want to use this app to learn of the entirety of hamlet's 'to be, or not to be' speech (as I did) this is still an amazing good and comprehensive app to be free especially seeing as it's not an Internet library and can be used outside wi-fi with the iPod touch and in flight mode with the iPhone.
