Let Your Smartphone Write Bibliographies For You

If you’re in university (or went to university), you know that the worst part of writing a paper is trying to crank out a bibliography/works cited page at the very end when you’re brain dead and running late for class. A group of ambitious young students at the University of Waterloo want to bring an end to that with Quick Cite.

Quick Cite lets you use the camera on an iOS or Android smartphone to scan a barcode and have the app email you a properly formatted entry (in MLA, APA, Chicago, or IEEE formats). [iTunes via Fast Company]
