An excellent resource for any level of student

:
Buy this app. I am writing my first ever review to encourage anyone interested in Shakespeare to purchase 'the only study guide you'll ever need'. The animations clarify the action superbly, and the inline language and theme hints make Macbeth instantly accessible.
While every educator and student should evaluate this app, anyone who has previously been challenged by one of the plays will come away understanding every nuance and still enjoying the play on its own terms as a complete work.
Support developers like Mindconnex who exercise the full power of the interface, and with sales and encouragement, it's possible we'll see many more plays done in this delightful treatment. Who knows? With enough time, maybe they'll tackle the Canterbury Tales.

5/5 stars

It's a breeze

:
I always tried to cultivate myself by reading Shakespeare , but could never fully comprehend it to actually enjoy it, this app makes it very easy, and may I add enjoyable , it's brilliant.

5/5 stars

Terrific app to explore Shakespeare's work

:
This is absolutely marvelous, a great way to read Macbeth. The play comes alive (literally) and every resource you need to help you fully understand the text, and the historical context, is at your fingertips. I can't recommend this app enough. If you have even a passing interest in Shakespeare, this is a must-have app for your collection.

I showed it to a couple of English teachers and a librarian, and they were totally blown away by this. If you're a student and you have to read this play, this is an INDISPENSABLE resource. Get your hands on it while it's on sale, but trust me, it's a steal at the regular price too !
