I️ don’t understand the negative reviews

I got this again

I am astounded by the number of negative reviews about this app. My response to those people is - are you using the right tool for the job?

Endnote on the iPad does not compare to the PC version that I have; but used in conjunction with the PC it it a very powerful partner. It allows one to annotate and sync with the web product and the PC version - I use it to read and annotate will I write on the PC and add my bibliography.

The few times I needed support Thompson-Reuters was easily accessible and help quickly. My only response to those people giving poor reviews is that they probably haven’t learned how to this this app optimally.

Need to improve annotation tools


This is a great app for organizing literature references and syncing with the desktop application, which I use to insert references as I write. Mostly, I find I use the iPad app for reading and annotating PDF references. For this purpose, the tools need to be improved, particularly when using the Apple Pencil. It is nearly impossible to use the pencil to jot comments in the margins of articles as the settings don’t permit the fine handwriting control that is the norm with most note-taking apps. Improvement is needed.

Only useful for collecting, managing, and reviewing sources

The real BigJim

This could have been a great product, if only they cared about functionality. They have limited this product to basic functionality and does not work too well with the desktop version. The temporary citations cannot be found when attempting to convert them on the desktop. Best method for this is to simply do it manually. Most schools force people to pay for EndNote because they provide for it in Technology Fees. This is the only reason why EndNote is still around.
