Nice and useful, but...

It REALLY needs a desktop version, with sync.
This is a really useful app, I've been looking for something like this for a long time (as a grad student in the humanities -- lots of citations, etc.), and this does the job very nicely. The only drawback, which is a huge drawback for me, is that I can only use it on my iPad, although the majority of writing I do still occurs on the computer. Yes, the rtf export works, but it's not extremely useful, as I can't update the database from my desktop.
So please, please, do come up with something for the desktop.

Not perfect, but there’s nothing better out there.

It absolutely has some bugs, but nothing app or feature breaking. I’d consider them minor annoyances, but otherwise the app is great. It’s really helped with multiple research papers I’ve I recommend if your major requires you to write research papers.

Waste of Money

This app is buggy garbage that doesn't work. I asked for a refund and Apple said 'so sad for you.'

So here is your one star for a trash can app that doesn't work.
