Ratings and Reviews
Fun and educational
I was looking for an audio for the play, but what I found was an app far beyond what I expected. The voice actors are perfect, funny, and captivating. You definitely will not be bored! Much better than the Librivox recordings (even though it's free). Furthermore, the background noise adds to the reading as a whole. It almost feels like you are watching the play. The only little complain is that they fail to pronounce both syllables, for example ta'en they pronounce as one syllable when renaissance english requires two syllables. Other than that, the app is perfect, especially for those who are studying shakespeare (they even give you modern english translation on the side, next to the text). For the price, you can't beat it!
The only thing I wish is that I could also use this app on my computer, or iPad (if there is an iPad app I haven't checked yet since I don't own an iPad). Reading the text on my iPhone is a little hard on the eyes, so I listen to the audio while reading the text online when I have my computer available
Other than that I would give the app 10 stars!!!
they do have an iPad version, so if you own an iPad get that also!!!
Love this app and use it (and its brothers and sisters) regularly in my classrooms. Would love to see better compatibility with Dark Mode; some text (like characters’ names) becomes unreadable when DM is on. Recent update was a pleasant surprise! Very happy DodgePoint is keeping up to date. I’ll continue buying the app for my entire class roster for as long as it works!
