I️ don’t understand the negative reviews

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.

Useful app, better annotation tools would add a star

This app extends the usefulness of EndNote. Annotation of the pdf is a bit unusual and I had to adapt my procedures to the limitations of the annotation tool set. There seem to be three tool sets that appear in different circumstances...a bit mystifying to me, though I think I figured it out. The pen tool is ok for underlining and circling, but not for writing notes. You’ll need to use the note tool for that, which hides the note text until you open the note, so you cannot see it at a glance of the page.

Good companion app, but bit buggy

I think this app works great in conjunction with the desktop version. In fact, the desktop could do with some updating to be on par with the app in terms of sleek UI and intuitive operations. That said, I have had quite a lot of issues in terms of syncing with the desktop in the past and the library taking a really long time to update. At the moment, the app is unusable to me because it will not get past the ‘indexing references’ stage upon start up. It crashes at 88% every time.
