Description: Shakespeare Pro is an app that contains the entire works of William Shakespeare (41 plays, 154 sonnets, 6 poems). This app could be useful in the classroom because it has a search engine that can search the entire works of Shakespeare for a single word or line. The search feature has a “relaxed” search, so that if a student cannot remember the exact phrase, they can still find what they are looking for.
How it Works:
This app features every text from the works of Shakespeare, with the first folios and quartos in the original spelling. An integrated glossary is included in the app, so that the user can simply click a word to learn its meaning. The app features the ability to keep in-app notes, which would be helpful for classroom use. It is also possible to bookmark parts of a text, a useful feature for classroom use. This app also contains character descriptions, scene descriptions, Shakespeare facts, memorable quotes, Shakespeare portraits, shortened Shakespeare tales, auto-scroll, and a Shakespeare passport.
