Very good paper manager

This is by far the best way to organize research paper.

However, reading in ipad can still be improved, one possible design is to support multiple tabs because it is often necessary to switch between different pdf's. It would be perfect if features in in pdf reader like "Goodreader" can be adapted.


Hello, I know this is supposed to be a review, but can you please add a bookmarking feature to the application. I often use the application to read long articles and textbooks. It would be very helpful to have a set of bookmarks so that I can quickly locate the information that I need. It is critical as an academic to have this feature.

Mendeley everywhere I go

Drag and drop a PDF onto Mendeley Desktop is magical. Mendeley automatically imports the document, creating the reference entry and adding the PDF to the library. That means that I can access my articles on the go from my phone, which is great for catching up on reading.
