SwipeSpeare - the Modern Shakespeare app - AndroidTapp. Okay, I get it. Modern kids want computers to make their lives easier. They don't want to read Shakespeare the way he wrote it. They want it in "modern" English; meaning, dumbed down so they don't have to work at it. Please. The rhythm and cadence of the plays are ruined by such a translation. I get that, for $20, you get the complete text of the plays, with a Study Guide and additional materials. For an extra $10 teachers can get pre-written lesson plans. But, swiping the original text to translate to "modern" English? That is an abomination not devoutly to be wished. Zounds! The great man is rolling over in his grave. Imagine "Neither a borrower nor a lender be, for loan oft loses both itself and friend" becoming "Hey, bro. Don't give money to anybody. They will skate with it, and you won't see them again". Or "We few, we happy few. We band of brothers!" becoming "There aren't many of us. But, we like each other, so let's go die together". I could go on; but, you get the picture. If you want to learn Shakespeare on your device, get the full text of the plays in Ebook format for free, and read them. Discuss.
