Shake's Notes App Offers Education and Fun for iPhone and iPod Touch

DCG Arts releases first entertainment app, Shakesnotes, available now for free on iTunes store.

PRLog - Mar. 9, 2011 - HOUSTON -- Shake's Notes, available now for free on iTunes store as "Shakesnotes," is an educational and entertaining way to share Shakespeare's quotes about love with others.  The app is available for a limited time free exclusively on the iTunes store.

While there are many apps involving quotes by William Shakespeare, none of them offered a streamlined way of sharing these quotes.  "[iPhone] apps must be simple, fast, and tangible," says DC Griffith, executive at DCG ARTS and user experience strategist; he conceptualized Shake's Notes. "We did it because Shakespeare should be fun and playful, like the bard himself.  Too many apps tried to do too much, Shakesnotes educates through discovery," Griffith says.

The app had a soft launch late February, but launches formally today utilizing the iAd Network, which will make the app free for time to come.

Shakesnotes uses the shake accelerometer in xcode, in layman's terms a user shakes the mobile device in order to get the next quote.  Users touch the quote to get its source; for example, a user might shake their iPhone and get "And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which as they kiss consume." Touch the quote and find out that it's from Romeo and Juliet.  E-mailing the quote to your friends, lovers, and crushes is easy with one more touch.

Shake's Notes is a patent pending trademark of DCG Arts, Inc.   Art design was by Scott Briefer Designs and the quotes were researched by Michael Zimmerman, an English teacher at Princeton High School and scholar at Teachers College.The app is available on itunes and http://www.shakesnotes.com.
