Shakespeare has all the ingredients of a big budget movie—if you can understand him.

SwipeSpeare puts the words of the Bard into plain and simple English with a Swipe of a finger!

The app also makes it easier to read notes, highlights and bookmarks on the Apple Watch.

Unlike other apps that put the original and modern side-by-side in a way that is distracting and hard to read, SwipeSpeare only shows you the modern text when you want to see it. Simply swipe your finger over the text, and the text will change; swipe it again and it will change back.

This app features:
• FREE built in (and searchable) Shakespeare Dictionary
• FREE Shakespeare biography
• FREE "Swipeable" copy of Romeo and Juliet
• FREE article on the real Shakespeare
• Every Shakespeare play translated into modern English! (The original play is also included--you choose how you want to read it. Swipe your finger and you can easily toggle back and forth!). Each play, with the exception of Romeo and Juliet, must be purchased separately.
• Highlight, share, and make notes to passages (free account required)
• Dialogue numbering
• Study Guides for every major play with more on the way (purchased separately)
• Lesson Plans for every major play with more on the way (purchased separately)

We are already making lots of improvements to this app--both to the content / features and the UI; we are eager to receive any feedback about what you dislike about the app or what you would like to see in future updates.
