Essayist allows you to write APA, MLA, Chicago & Harvard Style essays with ease. From in-text citations and footnotes to references and page setup, Essayist takes care of everything. It greatly simplifies the academic writing process.
Essayist formats everything for you. Upon starting a new essay it sets up the title section/page, margins, font, line spacing, alignment, page headers/footers, etc. It formats your references, in-text citations, footnotes/endnotes, figures, tables, table of contents and more.
Add references quickly and easily using Google Scholar, Essayist’s built-in search, by pasting a URL or manual entry forms. Once added, references are automatically formatted and added to your essay’s references/works cited list.
Essayist automatically detects when you are about to insert an in-text citation and presents a list of all your references. Simply tap the reference you wish to cite and continue writing.
Essayist makes it really easy to add footnotes. Simply, tap the insert citation button, select the reference you wish to cite and that's it. A footnote is automatically created for you. If you prefer to use endnotes, you can switch your citation method to endnotes in Settings.
