Hi everyone, I recently purchased an iMac, taking advantage of the discount on the product and of the £65 gift card student offer. I do a lot of writing for my university course and so far iWork has done the job in a satisfactory manner. However, I'll soon have to work on my final dissertation and possibly on a few academic papers in the future, depending on my job. Furthermore, I had a few questions for you all... 1) I was looking at various software available on the Mac App Store and Scrivener seems to be among the recommended ones for writers of any kind. In your opinion, would this program be worth purchasing given my writing needs, or would you say it's unnecessary? So far, I got along fine with iWork when dealing with shorter coursework essays but my dissertation might be a slightly more complicated business. 2) I never used any bibliography software to combine with my writing, despite needing to catalogue and report a fairly numerous amount of references throughout my studies/work. I heard of programs such as EndNote, Papers and Zotero, but just which one would be more suitable for my needs and of better price value? 3) Are there any other generally recommended apps that I would be able to purchase from the App Store? Which ones can't you live without? Thank you in advance for your advice!
