Ratings and Reviews
Very Good App
Aside from the occasional crash, this is a great app. Listening to Shakespeare while reading it brings a new level of enjoyment and appreciation to this wonderful literary work. Highly recommended.
The production quality is quite good. The voice acting is a bit uneven, but enjoyable nevertheless. Overall, I am pleased that I tried it. I will likely buy two or three other plays in the series. Hopefully they will prove to be of similar quality. One has many options for reading Shakespeare. That said, this is a good one.
Very, Very Nice
In addition to the audio, there is a concise modern language "summary" of each speech right next to it! No more hunting for footnotes. Also, and this may seem minor, but each characters name is spelled out, not abreviated.
