PC Magazine review "EndNote X6 (for Mac)"

There is now an EndNote app for the iPad. It is not included in the site license and costs $3.99 on iTunes. EndNote video | purchase at iTunes. My brief view of the app showed references in the "edit" view, not preview; could view pdf's, could not cite from the iPad; was told that you can copy a reference in only one general citation style; will sync references between EndNote Web and the iPad.

What EndNote Does

Basic. EndNote lets you store references to articles and books and to automatically cite them in one of over 5,000 citation styles such as MLA or APA. The majority of library databases allow you to export references to your EndNote library. You can also type references directly into your EndNote library. Then you can automatically add those citations in Microsoft Word, Apple Pages '09, or Writer 3. Intermediate. You can also link pdf's or Word documents to the references, configure EndNote to search the A&M library's subscriptions for full text of journal articles, create groups of references, and do some other customizations. Advanced. You can edit or create new output styles, add custom data fields to references (such as population of a study), and change what fields display in the main library window.
