The Verge have posted quite a good review of the Shakespeare’s Sonnets iPad App now available to buy. My previous post on the app can be found here. It may seems a bit pricey to some at $14.99 (price at the Australian iTunes store, check your local store for details), but it’s worth it particularly if you’re studying Shakespeare.

The Live Beta version of the Eye Shakespeare App by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust is now available for download. Aimed primarily at visitors to Stratford (though it can be accessed anywhere in the world), Eye Shakespeare is an interactive app that provides Shakespeare related information about Stratford, including prominent places to visit, such as Shakespeare’s birthplace and the Royal Shakespeare Company, and other information related to your trip to Stratford, such as where to eat, a calendar of local events etc. 

It’s well worth downloading this app and providing comments so the creators can improve the functionality of the app. I’ve already found out there’s a Shakespeare film festival in Stratford in October, something I didn’t know until I used the app!
