APA Citation style for Mobile App reference

The reference formats for apps are very similar to those for print and online reference works, with the exception that the title of the reference work is not italicized and is capitalized using title case. The version number and the description “Mobile application software” are also provided after the title to further identify the work for the reader. Here are two additional examples, one with an author and one without an author:

Deglin, J. H., & Vallerand, A. H. (2010). Davis’s Drug Guide for Nurses (12th ed.) [Mobile application software]. Retrieved from http://www.skyscape.com/estore/productdetail.aspx?productid=219

 Naproxen. (2010). In J. H. Deglin & A. H. Vallerand (Eds.), Davis’s Drug Guide for Nurses (12th ed.) [Mobile application software]. Retrieved from http://www.skyscape.com/estore/productdetail.aspx?productid=219

 In text, these would be cited:
(Deglin & Vallerand, 2010; “Naproxen,” 2010).
