After a year of development, Reference Tracker v2 is now available for public beta testing! If you would like to test it out, you can download it here. Reference Tracker 2 is a major update, with loads of new and refined features. Here is a quick overiew.

Updated UI

Reference Tracker 2 has an updated user interface, that is fully compatible (and looks great!) on both Retina and non-Retina Mac screens. The UI has also been simplified where appropriate to make it quicker and easier to use.

New Styles and Style Editor

In addition to having the latest versions of the Harvard, APA, Chicago, MLA and Vancouver styles all built in, Reference Tracker 2 has a really easy to use styles editor so you can create your own custom styles, or modify any existing styles. Even better, you can share your styles with one click, meaning you can also download and use styles shared by other users!

New Formatting System

The formatted reference generation system in Reference Tracker has been completely overhauled and now has much better layout and punctuation handling, and improved handling of references with partial data. Combined with the new custom styles editor, you can easily control punctuation, layout and even alternate text based on what information is included or not included in your references.
