This is the kind of app I wish existed when I was at university - footnotes and bibliographies caused me so much pain! @cenk what inspired you to start solving this problem?
@abadesi Thanks for the kinds words, Abadesi! Basically, an app I was previously using for this (RefME) got shut down, and I was desperate for an alternative. The existing apps didn’t really fulfil my needs (too large, too complex, too ugly, etc.) so I built my own. I go into exhaustive detail in this post:

Great job !! Wish there was an walk through video and how is it gonna be helpful !! 😊
@ayush_chandra Yeah, I meant to make a video but ran out of time. I thought it was more important to get this out to existing Citationsy customers than make them wait a couple more weeks until I was finished making a video. It’s definitely in the pipeline though!
