    This *was* a wonderful app for the occasional Shakespeare read. Alas, it's first "upgraded" to include a distracting large red banner across the top of the screen, one that stayed in place while you were reading the plays. That was both visually irritating and distracting, but also interfered with reading in the evening or at night when one wants to have a darker screen. [This has been replaced by a black and grey banner, an improvement, but still stays permanently in place-- at the top of every page of every play!] The app was much more professional, and aesthetically pleasing, when they simply had a small red upgrade button in the upper right-hand part of the screen when you were looking at the titles of the plays. What's more, they took away the ability to search ALL of the plays for particular terms, phrases, or words. Instead now, it only searches so far, shows a few results, and then it stops indicating there are scores of other results, but that you can only see them if you upgrade. Advertising and greed have replaced what was once an inviting app. As Portia put it in the Merchant of Venice, "My mind was never yet more mercenary"-- how aptly she doth describe the developers! They've also now filled the settings screen, where you go to select different fonts, font sizes, and colors, with many other features-- each of them with upgrade notices and again red bold SCREAMING buttons as adverts. Sure, the original settings choices are there but you have to scroll way down the screen. This is simply tawdry! Instead of encouraging people to upgrade, it's driving many of us to look for other Shakespeare play apps. I understand the reasons for doing this – wanting to capitalize on their Shakespearean app – but taking away features and adding irritating ad banners cheapens it all. Even the upgrade at $10 is too steep. By the way, if they were going to entice people for that kind of money, they should at least have options for how to turn pages – meaning that we wouldn't have to scroll up and down the page, but could instead simply tap on the right side of the screen to advance by page (or the left, to go back). That is, the same one does for a regular ebook!

    I really, really hate vendors that throw up nag screens asking for ratings. It's bad enough in their own apps, but unconscionable to use the notification system for nagging. Apple clearly didn't design it for that purpose. So here's my rating: one star. You asked for it, you got it. UPDATE: I'm not sure why the developer has only now responded to a three-year old review, but in fairness, the nag screens have long since been removed, so I'm increasing the rating based on the app (decent) and content (excellent).

    This is perfect for my current project and has Been very helpful. Search function is key and though it needs a tweak as Othello seems to be off a bit, and the poems etc don't get excluded when you narrow a search, it is still remarkably useful. Now they need to add some more of the apocryphal texts--Arden of Faversham was recently included as in part by WS by Oxford I think, and there are several still under suspicion of him helping on. But this couldn't have come at a better time for me.
