  • Disappointment for genearl E-book readers

    Shakespeare fans must be excited to see this app on App Store. At first glance it looks pretty promising; yet my experience using it has told me otherwise.
    It is true that one can find a total of 8 masterpieces of the great playwright inside the app. However, reading the texts is not as pleasant as one would expect. Users cannot customize the font size and color, so in case you read it at night with the lights off, then you will probably find the white background excessively bright and distracting. Eventually E-books go down to the reading experience within the app, so I would say this app is bit of a disappointment. It is also worth mentioning that the app provides no explanatory notes to the text, users might struggle to understand certain dated expressions of the writer.

  • Tips for using the product

    Get this app only if you are fine with uncustomizable font size and color.
