Just released: the app that does your referencing for you


Share This Article:

At university, time is precious; you want to spend yours studying, socialising and salvaging as many marks as possible following misspent mornings skipping lectures. You want to dive into a new and exciting routine of researching, essay writing and sampling the various delights that societies, the SU and your new city has to offer, not fritter away hours referencing texts.

Thank goodness, then, for the new ReferenceME app, which promises to free up an estimated 44 days of study time by saving you the joyless task of trawling through books, journals and sites for references.

Conceived by the guys who brought us another highly student friendly creation, the Domicopter- a drone that delivers your much needed Domino’s pizza through the air - the ReferenceME app was built with the purpose of  collating book references quickly and effectively. The app has just been voted The Guardian App of the Week and is an Apple University Survival Guide App.

ReferenceME works directly from your smartphone and all you need to do is scan the bar code of the book. The app automatically assembles the required information in standardised citation or bibliography formats, effectively lopping off hours spent referencing and collating it all for you in a fraction of the time. ReferenceME can create bibliographies and citations or footnotes for Harvard, Chicago, Vancouver, MHRA, MLA, Oxford and APA. 

In addition, with ReferenceME you have the power to keep track of books read, complete an entire bibliography and create projects. Naturally, you can also send your generated references via email to simply paste on to your essay.

ReferenceME is available for free on the App Store.

So, the more pressing question is, what are you going to do with your 44 days of freed up time?
