Apps for Successful Students

ShakespeareShakespeare“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrown upon them.” It’s great to have Shakespeare at your fingertips, whether you’re studying British Lit in high school or taking an advanced seminar on his tragedies in college. This simple but solid app from Readdle contains all of his plays as well as his sonnets and poems. It even has a search feature; type in “a rose” and it comes back with “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet.” Tap on the quote and you’re taken directly to Romeo & Juliet, Act II, Scene II. Unfortunately, you do have to scroll down a bit to get to the actual quote; I wish the search function was just a tad more accurate. Otherwise, this app is a real time saver. Do yourself a favor and check out this or any of the apps from Readdle.
