    When I click on the title.. the second page goes cramped up at the top (only a small image is displayed) and displays only a bunch of lines. Couldn't navigate the plays.

    Once you click on a play or sonnet you can't see what chapters there are. Please fix!

    Table of contents doesn't work on my Galaxy Note 3. Would be a better app if it were searchable.

    Unfortunately, while the mechanics of this app are OK the actual content is unreliable. For Shakespeare, probably more than any other source, it is vital the words are spelled correctly as many are unfamiliar outside of his work. Finding several errors in the first page of the first play I looked at (Othello), I can't recommend this app to anyone who is more than slightly interested in Shakespeare
