Shakespeare Pro



    Shakespeare Pro's review

    Published: 2015-04-21, by .

    An app dedicated to the popular playwright and his works

    • Lots of content about Shakespeare
    • Easy to use
    • The design could be better

    "To be or not to be?"


    Shakespeare is an app to enjoy the famous playwright and his completed works any time you want (this is best used on a tablet). Learn more about his life, study his works, and analyze his poems and sonnets.


    We love that you can change the theme (each color is a Shakespearean phrase) to comfortably read, and you can even underline characters in distinct colors.

    If you're a Shakespeare fanatic, this app has discounts on events related to him, so don't hesitate to download this one!


    The design isn't very professional, though it doesn't stop the app from being easy to use and helpful for those interested in good ol' Bill.
