APA Style 101
Developed by a university professor and published researcher with over 16 years of full-time experience in academia, this application is designed to TEACH you the fundamentals of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition (the most recent edition).
NOTE: Please keep in mind that this application will NOT format your paper for you! There are at least two major problems with software programs that attempt to automatically organize/format papers. First, such programs can and do make mistakes. Think about it . . . even spell check programs will fall short from time to time (e.g., If you wanted to use the word “peace” and spelled the word “piece” instead, spell check would not catch this problem). Most importantly, you may fall woefully short in terms of mastering even the “basics” of the APA style--that is, you may become much too dependent upon the program and may not catch the mistakes that such programs inevitably make.
Learning to write using the APA style is not that difficult. Towards that end, APA Style 101 was created with over 45 minutes of video that will teach you the following:
Summary of Paper
Summary & Concluding Thoughts
Bonus Section: Grammar, Flow, and Organization
Learning APA style is a significant part of the formula in writing an “A” worthy term paper, thesis, or dissertation. Another important part of the formal writing process is, collectively--grammar, flow, and organization. You would be shocked and amazed at the mistakes made by students over and over again. To help you avoid the most common mistakes made when writing a formal paper, APA Style 101 also includes a bonus section with close to 20 minutes of video covering the following:
Commas (Yes, people actually misuse commas!)
What's New in Version 1.5
Fixes intermittent issues with audio
Fixes compatibility issues with older versions of IOS 5
Wasted money on this app
Very limited information about how to do APA style on your paper, thesis, dissertation, etc. There are a bunch of videos "classes" of how to do APA. It is extremely boring, not application interactive, not very good teaching style of someone just talking over a subject on a video on certain topics. If I had this as a college class I would had dropped it quickly. THERE ARE DIFFERENT TEACHING STRATEGIES AND STYLES AND JUST WATCHING A VIDEO IS VERY BORING. Unproductive. :-(
I definitely wasted money/time and If I knew it was this boring I wouldn't have download this kind of app even if it was FREE.
Don't do it!
Doesn't download correctly to iPad 2. Don't waste your time or money.
Not worth the .99 cents. Videos didn't even work!
