Shakespearean Sonnets: Download Them On Thy iPad

Thou art a reader of the Shakespearan sonnet? Thy luck is good! Faber released an app called The Sonnets of William Shakespeare last week for the iPad.  

The $13.99 app features 154 poems with annotations, as well performances of some sonnets by actors such as Dr. Who‘s David Tennant, Sex & The City‘s Kim Catrall and comedian Stephen Fry. (A DVD of just the performances is also for sale on TheSonnets.tv.) Additionally, the app offers interviews with Shakespearean scholars about the works.

But the coolest feature might be the ability to Share-a-Sonnet via Facebook, Twitter or email. Courtship just got that much easier, boys and girls.
