Hello Shakespeare fans,
We are more than happy to finally release the new version of an ultimate Shakespeare app. The list of new features is massive.
However, the best part of the update is of course First Folio edition, which has been included in the application.
If you are not familiar with the app yet, Shakespeare Pro includes the complete works of Shakespeare (41 plays, 154 sonnets and 6 poems, including doubtful works) and search the concordance to find the exact word or phrase you’re looking for (with “relaxed” searching to find words close to your search term).

✔ Added First Folio editions of 37 plays (with original spelling and font)
✔ Added First Quarto editions of Sonnets, Two Noble Kinsmen and Edward III (with original spelling and font)
✔ Added Third Folio of Pericles (with original spelling and font)
✔ Major overhaul to Shakespeare’s Words glossary definitions, better identification of word instances
✔ Major update to editions of plays, including identifying each individual character (each messenger, servant, etc. given individual names)
✔ Added scene descriptions for every scene in every play
✔ Added character descriptions for every character in the works of Shakespeare
✔ Improved search results browsing and better results titles
✔ Expanded Facts section, fixed some text formatting errors
✔ Improved quote source browsing
✔ Fixed Shakespeare Passport flags
✔ Updated Shakespeare portraits
✔ Overall speed and stability
