Citing my sources... I was as bad at that as I am with documenting my code. :) So how do you make writing the bibliography to your 37 page research paper easier? Well if a group of students from the University of Waterloo have anything to say about it you will take picture with your phone and have it emailed to you. The app was one of seven developed during a week long coding experiment. What would you have done for an app like this when you were in college?</p>

I would have killed for this back when I was in college. It makes me want to go back to school just so I can utilize it :D
