I've long been leery of EndNote, having watching Thomson, the company behind it, swallow up competitors like the much missed ProCite. But, at this point, I have to admit they they offer a very solid product. I have EN on both my iPad and Mac and am able to seamlessly keep the two in sync. I can download any PDF I want to read to my iPad on demand, which I great since I don't want to store my 6 GB library on my iPad. The annotation tools within EN for the iPad are "fine", not quite as smooth as, say, iAnnotate, but very workable. But, by using those tools, my annotations are automatically synced back to my Mac, which is great since that is where I do most of my writing.
Early in it's life, the program tended to crash a lot, but I haven't had much problem in the last six months. Every so often I get duplicates as part of the syncing process, but I think that's generally when I've done something to confuse it (e.g., add item to EndNote online, sync that to Mac, change, sync online to iPad, sync Mac to online, etc.). As a way of splitting reading and organizing to my iPad and writing to my Mac, I find it an excellent tool.
Seriously....that review said it was consistent and intelligent?
Setting aside that the review was probably written by TR...this is among the more pointless apps I own. I don't use it to read PDFs. Why? Because other apps are better at that. I expected from the app what I expected from the desktop version - software that would archive sources and then be able to format them for use as footnotes or citations for a paper (it's in the name of the app for goodness sakes!!!)
You are paying yet another outrageously inflated price as a grad student for a program that is indeed consistent, and intelligent (?); but at the end of the day it's a paperweight. Paperweights are consistently weighty and intelligently keep papers from scattering, but it sort of just sits there looking expensive...the endnote app lets you view all your references, which you could do online, but won't help you with citations...again, what's the name of the app?
However, it has one output style that doesn't really correspond to recognizable style guides. So basi
I previously disliked, but seeing the benefits of it
I used to think that EndNote was a waste of money because Microsoft Word had the ability to reference in the formats that I used. It is not until recently when I discovered the power of EndNote lies with ability to be a Reference Database. You can customize the output styles and it works great with Apple Pages on the desktop. I just wished that the options to citation in the iPad version had the ability to provide in-text citations according to a selected reference style.
