Abstract: With the EasyBib app, writers can use their iPhone to quickly scan the barcode of a book, or just type in the book’s name and, within seconds, an accurate MLA, APA or Chicago style citation is created. The user then can add more citations, or email and export the citations to EasyBib.com’s popular bibliography management service to be added to other citations being collected.


New York, May 24, 2011 – From the very beginning, EasyBib has worked to make the old, painstakingly complex bibliography process simple and easy. Now, with their brand new iPhone application, citing references just got even easier!

Once the new app is downloaded, writers can use their iPhone to quickly scan the barcode of a book, or just type in the book's name and, within seconds, an accurate MLA, APA or Chicago style citation is created. After that, the user can add more citations, or email and export the citations to EasyBib.com's popular bibliography management service to be added to other citations being collected.

Designed to save time for the modern researcher, and conveniently available for EasyBib users who aren't near their computers, the free EasyBib application is easily found for download through the search function in the iTunes App Store.

"It's always been an EasyBib goal to integrate seamlessly into every student's daily schoolwork and to be everywhere they are. Their cell phone is definitely part of their everyday life," commented Darshan Somashekar, EasyBib co-founder. "With this new iPhone app, their favorite bibliography program is right there at hand no matter where they happen to be researching."

Although the app has only been available for a few days, it's already receiving rave customer reviews from its first iPhone app users. "Even easier to use than the website!" raves one customer. "What a great time saver!" says another. Others said, "A great addition to an already incredible FREE service." And, "4 stars."

The new EasyBib iPhone app is included with other features that have been recently implemented into the service, such as the Website Evaluation Tool, the Notebook Tool, and integrations with services from Google, Credo Reference, ABC-Clio and OCLC – all steps taken to consistently improve the whole service for its 26 million users.
