What he said.

I have this app on both my iPhone and iPad. It is a scholarly work on those. I can access folio versions, there are line numbers, there are all kinds of added things. But the app for the Mac is simply the texts of the plays without line numbers even. Wait till it comes up to the mobile versions before buying it.

Developer Response ,

We've updated the app twice. Have you updated yet? The new Shakespeare Pro 1.3.1 now has notetaking features and the Shakespeare's Words glossary. You will get those for free when you update the app. If you're still having trouble, please contact us at support@playshakespeare.com or support.playshakespeare.com

Outstanding

It's amazing - and gratifying - that PlayShakespeare.com's Shakespeare Pro app contains as much as it does: the texts of Shakespeare's entire œvre - in both modern presentation and that of the First Folio; with line numbers, notes, bookmarking etc. Plus a biography, portraits, notes on the theatres, and relevant background theory like the Great Chain of Being and monarch family trees.

For each play there is a synopsis, chronologies, composition and publication dates, sources and - where appropriate - co-authors.

Additionally Shakespeare Pro contains over a dozen and a half sets of relevant data that are all both easy-to-read and use; ten collections of statistics about the plays' characters, their roles and (numerical) contributions to each play.

Analyses of language includes scansion and prosody, a huge glossary of Renaissance rhetorical terms, Shakespeare's neologisms; and tables of quotes sortable by text, speaker and work.

Much of the material is searchable. It's all tastefully presented. Will save a great deal of time by obviating the need to search/consult online and paper sources.

And all this for US$9.99.

The app seems robust; is easy to navigate and contains many links to (external) sources. An amazing find. The best of its kind.
