Customer Reviews

Time saver!

I have been using the free version of this app in conjunction with the web based version for the past 2 years. It saves so much time because, rather than individually writing my academic references, I get the option to scan webpages, books and PDF's which 99% of the time brings up the correct format of referencing.

The only downfall is that I have to go through and check the references produced as sometimes an error occurs e.g. when et al. is used in the original material. In this case, a prompt to check all the authors are listed before generating the reference would be a useful future feature.

Overall I think this app and corresponding web version makes an excellent addition to every student's resources. I have recommended it to all my university friends and also enlightened some lecturers about the value this app adds to university life!

Pro version has bugs

I love this app so much, and like everyone else says, it saves so much time. I opted, therefore, to purchase the rather expensive pro version only to find that there are technical issues (for iOS) when trying to add page numbers. The box simply doesn't work most of the time. Please fix this as, in general, this is a great app (particularly the free version, which I would give five stars).

Simplicity is key!

This app has taken so much time out of the essay writing process at university. I especially love the barcode scanner, which saves even more time, like when you're in the library with a handful of books!
