Our goal: Create a tool that's 10X better than the next best thing.

The result: We built a program that can crawl 10 or more sites at once, find all the necessary information, and format that data in MLA, APA, Chicago, Harvard or 8000+ other styles in under 10 seconds! The next best thing takes 10 minutes!

You need to become a Contributor to join the discussion.

Hey @duncan_hamra, Can you tell us about why you wanted to build this?

@jacqvon My partner and I built the first version our senior year of high school (secondary school). We had formatted hundreds of citations by that time and did NOT look forward to using Easybib and Citation Machine for another 4-years at college. We sat down with our friends and teachers, and made a list of all the things we hated about the competition. That list included: giant & annoying ads, too many steps, long load times, bad data, and a long learning curve. What you see online today is the result of 3-weeks work over winter break. The entire site has been redesigned 5-times over winter/summer breaks! Now that we're FINALLY finished with school we're going to invest all of our time into the site. Thanks for asking :)

Finally, a citation tool that works without cluttering the interface with a bunch of unnecessary stuff. Wish I had this when I was in school.

@serbanmd Thank you!! We keep a close eye on the number of buttons, inputs, etc. a user can see at any given time to avoid UI bloat. It's a fun challenge to add functionality without adding to the interface!

@ayush_chandra Thank you!! We're 110% committed to getting the web app version 10x better than the next best thing, ASAP. Once the website version is ready we'll start gauging demand for a browser extension or plugin for Google Docs and/or MS Word. We don't want to spread ourselves too thin too fast :)
