  • NOT optimized for iPad, poor translation

    Navigation is very poor. Chapter titles have blank icon holders. Tapping on a chapter title does not navigate to that chapter. This app lacks the adjustable text size feature, making the tiny thumbnails at the bottom useless. To make matters worse the translation is weak. In their effort to make the everyday translation accessible the authors spent little or no time trying to understand the metaphors or figurative meanings inherent in Shakespeare's writing. And the notes which were promised? An occasional note in he margin. Don't waste your time or money.
