Bookends version 11.3.7
The reference manager Mac and iOS users have been waiting for
That’s right, Bookends goes to 11! And now you can take it with you. Bookends On Tap—Bookends, wherever you are. Available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Reference management entails the collection, annotation, and citation of published information. Bookends greatly simplifies these tasks. Bookends can perform Internet searches to retrieve references and associated pdfs or web pages, or immediately find and import references for which you already have the pdf. Versatile groups (static, smart, and virtual), Term Lists (keywords, authors, etc.), reference cross-linking (links), multiple notecards per reference, tag clouds, and near-instantaneous live searches help organize and find information in your personal collection. Highly configurable displays let you view the reference information and attachments the way you want. Scan your word processor manuscripts to create publication-ready documents complete with bibliographies and footnotes. Sync references and pdfs in your library with your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad (requires separate purchase of Bookends On Tap from the iTunes App Store). And much more. Compatible with Word (2004, 2008, and 2011), Mellel (now with Live Bibliography, updating of citations and bibliographies as you type), Apple Pages '08 and ‘09, Nisus Writer Pro, and OpenOffice 3. Here’s what’s new in this version.
Bookends is a CNET Editor’s Pick and a MacUpdate featured app, with 4-5 star user reviews.
