How I Use It
The app is not overly engaging to students. The app simply presents the work of Shakespeare. While it is nice to read on the iPads, Shakespeare can get dry very quickly when presented to teenagers. All the app does is present the work.
My Take
I do like the availability of Shakespeare on mobile devices, and the ability of text to speech. However, I would use No Fear Shakespeare over this app with general students. However, in an AP English class, I might use this app.
