StyleEase – academic writing software review

Writing an academic paper needs something more than just typing your content on a screen. Depending on what types of institutions you submit the paper to, you should follow the required format.

StyleEase is an academic writing software that supports formats for APA, MLA, and Chicago-style academic papers. It automatically formats your academic papers in one of the above styles.

You need Microsoft Word software to use SytleEase. Once installed, StyleEase automatically formats your paper in specific styles.

In January 2011, Mac OS version became newly available in addition to existing MS Windows version.

A single copy of StyleEase does not cover all the styles. You should buy separate version for the style you write for.

Prices of each version are as follows.

1. PC

StyleEase for APA-style ($35)
StyleEase for MLA-style ($35)
StyleEase for Chicago style ($35)

* Microsoft Word 2000, 2003, XP, 2007 or Word 2010 is required.

2. Mac

StyleEase for APA-style ($35)

Reviews of StyleEase is a mixed bag. For example, reviews at Amazon.com have following titles.

– Does not work; Don’t waste your money. Get Perrla Instead!
– StyleEase is not so easy to use.
– Absoloutely love this program!
– What a timesaver!
– Saves me SO much time!
– Description misleading but product does its job
– Don’t Waste Your Money!

A good idea is to use a trial version for a while and see if the software is worth buying. You can download trial version here.
