One of the most iconic names in literature is Jane Austen. And fans of the author can take a deep dive into her life, writing, and more with the new app Jane Austen’s World.
First up, the app features the complete text of arguably her most important work, Pride & Prejudice. Future updates will bring five additional novels—Sense & Sensibility, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and Mansfield Park.
While reading, you can customize the font size and background color. You can also save your place in the novel.
There is also a character wall where all the main characters have their portrait hanging. Select one to see a biography of that character.
And the app feature’s more than Austen’s works.
