Shakespeare In Bits Products Get Digitally Picked by The New Yorker

Digital Pick: Bard Drive by The New Yorker

"Shakespeare was intended to be watched, not read—and yet millions of students still slog through paperback copies of 'Hamlet.' Enter the Irish educational company Shakespeare in Bits, and its iPad and iPhone apps for 'Romeo and Juliet,' 'Macbeth,” and, just released September 7th, 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream' (available for iPad only). Each app features animations and sound to go with the corresponding text, in which certain words or phrases are 'modernized' with a touch (Romeo and Juliet become 'fateful,' not 'star-crossed,' lovers); notes and synopses help explain things further. It’s not a night at the Globe, but it’s a sort of performance nonetheless."
