Spanish Audio I love this app, but was disappointed when I switched on the audio for "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" and heard Spanish. Isn't there a way to switch it to English? It's understandable that a lot of the big-named poets aren't included, no deduction of stars there, but 4 stars out of 5 due to the audio problem.
the best full access to poems while offline... perfect for commutes or other transitional times when a book is too long and the scenery is lacking.
Pretty Amazing This app is everything you could ask for from a poetry app. By seamlessly mixing the abilities to seek poems that you know you love and the ability to stumble accross something new, there are endless options for hours of literary discovery. Best of all is that not only is it free, but there are no adds.
Good but needs serious updates I love this app when I initially got it. I thought it was brilliant. Unfortunately, not enough basic features built into the app, such as sharing through other third party apps besides Facebook and Twitter. The UI needs serious work. It is okay, but on a tablet it seems stretched (like most other Android apps). Also, it would be highly convenient if it was possible to save poems for offline use. Generally, it is good to look up poetry. After using it for a long period, it feels outdated and limited.
Crashy and outdated The app has gotten quite old and looks rather ugly and also crashes a lot. The content is pretty good though.
At lack for Plath There are a bunch of greats and a bunch of craps, the great world of poetry folded into a single cyber world page, except... where the hell is Sylvia Plath? The greatest poetess of all time is missing from this so called application designed by the foundation of verse. I want my Plath, my beautiful, lucid melancholy. Yes, I have nearly everything she's written in print, but I also want to carry her words in my pocket, wherever I go. The weight of her sublime sorrow. I want Sylvia. To her 'Edge', I plea.
