The Poetry App by Connie

Name of App:  The Poetry App

Cost: Free

Device/s used: iPod

What was good about this tool?
This app has a collection of poems, some of which may be useful for AS Literature. It covers Goblin Market and Sister Maude by Christina Rossetti also The Patriot, My Last Duchess and Porphyrias Lover By Robert Browning. Its useful to always have them to hand for revision for example Goblin Market is so long it takes 20 minutes to read making it more portable. Also by having it on an Apple device it is very easy to get word definitions. Part of the app is actors giving narrations of the poems, this would be very good as you can get a greater understanding of the poems meaning. However I have tried to download and play this feature yet it still does not work.

What was bad about this tool?
The ability to download more poets and their poems would be useful as at the moment you are very restricted to the ones that are already pre-programmed.
