iPhone App of the week – EasyBib


Doing a research paper in your class and feel like you’re spending too much on the bibliography? Well the EasyBib app might be for you. Based on the popular website that helps you create correct citations for various types and from various sources. This free app allows anyone to either scan a book’s ISBN number or you can search for it (books only folks). Once it is found it will give you the citation in MLA, APA and Chicago formats. Obviously students will need to know how to add the page numbers they used, but that is an easy addition.

It’s easy, effective and free! Give it a try by downloading it today.
