Subject:    Sonnet Trainer App


My name is Dr. Frank Landsbergen. I have recently published an Android-app with which users can train their knowledge of Shakespeare's Sonnets, and I thought it would be nice to bring this to the attention of your site.


There are already several apps with which you can read the sonnets, but this app is different in that the user has to ‘rewrite’ a sonnet, either by reconstructing each line, which has been broken up into parts, or by choosing the correct line from three options. This way, users can practice their knowledge of the sonnets.


The app is called 'Shakespeare Sonnet Trainer' and can be found in the app store through the link below. There is a free version for the sonnets 1-50, and a paid version for all the sonnets.


An iPhone version is scheduled for this fall.


Kind regards,

Frank Landsbergen
