New York, January 5, 2012 EasyBib is kicking off the New Year by introducing its free mobile bibliography application into the Android Market. The EasyBib iPhone and iPad app was introduced last year to rave reviews, (25,000 downloads since its introduction in June), and now Android users will also be able to cite to their references while researching on the go.

The Android app is set up the same as the iPhone app. Once the new app is downloaded, writers can use their Android device 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 included with 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 Android Market.

"Much of today's research is done on computers, but when writers are actually in the library, the process of tracking the bibliographic information they find there is now as handy as the easy-to-use EasyBib app on their smart phone," commented Neal Taparia, EasyBib Co-founder. "And while it's great for researchers, we've seen with the iPhone version of the app that it's a great tool to keep track of books and create books lists."

Positive reviews of the EasyBib iPhone app keep on coming: "This little app makes bib work so incredibly easy. Get it. You'll love it." And: "My new favorite app!" And: "Best app for college ever!"

EasyBib.com is a citation formatting, note taking, and research tool. Founded in 2001 by students, EasyBib is headquartered in New York City and used by over 30 million students. EasyBib offers up-to-date formatting in MLA, APA, and Chicago styles, footnotes and parenthetical citations, note taking features, and more. Visit: www.easybib.com
