Ratings and Reviews

Just what you need as a researcher

Anna Muslim

As a researcher the thought of have all you PDF on the go everywhere you go is just astonishing. Well done to the developer, you really save the researchers time. Highly recommended to those who are working on a PhD.

The best


Love this app. Has made referencing my papers a breeze. If only I knew about Mendeley 5 years ago it would have saved hours of research, cross-referencing, word search and typing up bibliographies Oh the wasted hours ... No more :)



Would be great if it actually worked. It crashes soon after syncing.
Please fix ...
