Friday marked the official launch of the Apple iPhone Store on iTunes and PlayShakespeare is now available on your iPhone and iPod.
As part of our previously announced cooperation with Readdle (who also launched their popular eBook application), we worked closely with the Readdle team to put the complete works of Shakespeare at your fingertips. The new application, called simply "Shakespeare," includes the high-quality texts from PlayShakespeare.com free of charge.
The benefits of being on the iPhone Store are numerous. It allows us to update our texts and have them automatically updated on your iPhone or iPod. It also allows us to add new functionality to bring you some of the other popular aspects of PlayShakespeare.com.
