App Review – EasyBib

Today’s App Review is EasyBib by Imagine Easy Solutions.

When I was in college I always hated making writing bibliographies at the end of research projects and I don’t think anyone really enjoys doing them. My class are certainly no different so it was great to discover EasyBib. This App scans the barcodes from the back of books and instantly gives the reference information. No need to remember whether the author or date comes first this is the best and easiest way to do it.

It has worked perfectly on the few books I have tried so I have not found any major issues. The one thing I would say is that it is limited to physical books and so won’t work on many iBooks or web resources. It would be great if in a future update that the developers could add these in and students these days use far more online resources instead of taking a trip to the library.

The App is also a great resource for students to practice the makeup of different bibliography sources through scanning a few different books themselves.
