Sometimes it is easier to write when starting with research. Essay Starter is a new $.99 app from Ashton East that is designed to help writers start essays based on research and then wrap footnotes around these references.
Using the app, writers can upload research documents as PDF files. These PDF files are readable and can be highlighted within the app. Writers can create a new worksheet to make notes on their research and then write their essays around these notes. When a user writes something based on the research, the app will automatically find the reference information and will give the user the option to add footnotes. There is an option to add additional bibliographical information to footnotes.
Here is more about the app from iTunes: “We can’t write the essay for you, but we want to make it as pain free as possible. Please let us know if there is a feature you would like to see, or that you think would make writing essays in your subject easier.”
