Mobile Application for Dissertation Citation Frustration

Taking the time to compile and correctly format a bibliography is arguably one of the most daunting tasks associated with research papers and dissertations but a new app for iPhone and Android users could prove to be a huge timesaver for all students.

Quick Cite–which was developed by undergrads at the University of Waterloo– uses your phone’s camera to scan the barcode on the back of a book and then automatically generates a bibliography in correct APA, MLA, Chicago, or IEEE format.  The bibliography is then sent to your personal email as reported in Fast Company.

Unfortunately, the really hard work- writing the paper- can’t be accomplished with a mobile app.
