Amherst, MA (PRWEB) August 31, 2006 –
StyleEase Software (http://www.styleease.com) has announced the release of a Macintosh version of its bestselling APA formatting software. “For 15 years we’ve been hearing from prospective customers who wanted a Macintosh version of StyleEase. We’re thrilled to introduce this Mac version to our line of products” said President Gary Hillerson.
The Macintosh version of StyleEase for APA Style is available for Mac OS X 10.2.8 and later, and runs on Word 2004. “There wasn’t a lot of development for Word on Macs before,” added Hillerson, “but with the recent improvements in OS X and Word, we can finally bring StyleEase’s sophisticated programming to the Macintosh community.”
StyleEase developers note Apple’s increase in the academic market share of late, thanks in large part to the popularity of iPods and iTunes. “We’ve started with our most popular product—for APA style—and will be introducing Macintosh versions of our MLA and Chicago/Turabian software as well,” said Hillerson.
StyleEase works with Microsoft Word to automate all elements of academic papers, from title page to references. All academic disciplines require that students’ work be submitted in specific formats—APA (American Psychological Association), MLA (Modern Language Association), and Chicago/Turabian styles being the most common. StyleEase offers different templates for all three of these popular academic formats.
This California-based business started in 1990, when Hillerson and Lange were working on Masters degrees in counseling psychology. At that time Hillerson created a Microsoft Word template called FormatEase. “There was just nothing out there to help students with all the minute details of paper formatting,” said Hillerson. FormatEase evolved into StyleEase, and StyleEase is now stocked in campus bookstores nationwide. The company website draws over 30,000 visitors a month.
StyleEase is available for immediate download and on CD at http://www.styleease.com. StyleEase is distributed by Academic Wholesale, and also sells at Amazon.com.
