With Citationsy you can organize your citations into different projects and export them in over 8,500 different styles (APA, Harvard, Chicago, MLA, DIN, and everything else). It includes search engines for books, music, podcast, and scientific papers to make finding the sources you want to cite even easier.

Create citations from your book by just scanning their barcode with this app. It’s never been easier to reference a book! Just open the app, choose the project you’d like to add the book to, and scan away!

This app has all the functionality from the Citationsy web app, and is completely free.

What’s New

Version 1.2

- Scanning barcodes now works slightly differently - after each book scan you will be shown a screen confirming the information we found automatically, and you can adjust things if you need to
- Fixed some other small bugs
- Trying to open the scanner without selecting a project now lets you know that you need to select a project first.

The most recent update still does not work

The most recent update still does not work. I submitted my original review 9 days ago. Nothing has changed. “Saved” books and projects disappear regularly.

Do not rely on the information provided by this app. Just because the app says that your book has been saved, does not mean that your book has been saved.

Their most recent update has made it so that when you create a project you can no longer scan a barcode. The scanner does not show up on the screen when you go into a project.

When I am on my main screen with the list of projects and the project is highlighted I have tried to use the scanner. It says that the book has been saved. However it has not been saved in any of my projects.

Finally, what are you going to make it so that we can scan magazines and journals?

Developer Response ,

Sorry that the app is not working out for you. The latest updates fixes some of the bugs you’ve mentioned, so I encourage you to give it a try.
Citationsy will never be able to scan magazines and journals.
