Ratings and Reviews
Great overview & helpful definitions
Thank you for providing this resource! So many of my students are lost when we study Shakespeare. You have helped make this play accessible and understandable.
Audio Doesn't Work/ No app support
I generally don't review apps. I figure they're hit or miss. I was in a play last year, and downloaded it, from this company; it was great. However, I just don't loaded A Midsummer Night's Dream and the audio doesn't work. Also, I tried to click "app support" and there is not contact form or help on the website. I don't mind paying for the app, even without audio, because it's great. I just wish the audio worked, as I remember it was great. I truly loved the intonation, of having real people for Taming of the Shrew. Again, it's sad that it's NOT ON THIS APP.
This app helps so much! I used to have a REALLY hard time with Shakespeare, and being in an 8th grade honors English class I had to learn it. And I failed the first quiz and then I found this app. And now I am a Shakespeare wiz! It helps me with studying because it tells who the character is and what roll they take in the play. The readers that read the play to you have such enthusiasm so it makes you want to read more! This is just such a great app and I recommend it to anyone who wants/needs(like me) help with Shakespeare.
