Snap bibliography citations to save time writing essays with RefME for iOS and Android

One of the most laborious aspects of working on an academic essay is producing a solid reference list or bibliography. It is all too easy to miss a book or journal, and trying to strictly stick to the expected referencing style can be a pain when all you want to do is get on with the meat of an essay.

RefMe: Referencing Made Easy aims to make referencing a straightforward task by not only letting you manually input key information such as a source’s author, editor, title, edition, date, publisher and so on but granting access to the camera so that you can simply generate a reference from a book or journal’s barcode.

Although there seems to be an issue when searching for newer books, there’s no doubting that RefMe is a powerful, clean and intuitive app. With more than 7,000 referencing styles and the ability to search for specific articles, books and even websites, you’re able to select the specific location of a citation and – thanks to an update – add notes to the references.
What makes the app especially useful is that all of this information can be exported via email or Evernote. By syncing the notes to ReadMe.com, they can even be exported to Microsoft Word or EndNote. There’s no better autocitation tool.
