What's New in Version 2.4.0

NOTE: We recommend connecting to a wi-fi network before running this update for the first time.

This release brings one of our most highly requested features: Fetch document details. When you are online and open a PDF in Mendeley from another app such as Safari or Mail, Mendeley will attempt to fetch the correct details (Title, Authors, Publication, etc...) for that PDF and save it to your library, just like it does in Mendeley Desktop.

Also in this release are some huge improvements to the speed of first-time syncs, the reliability of annotation syncing, and some minor bug-fixes for the PDF reader.

If you experience any issues, please contact our friendly support team at

Customer Reviews

Still my favorite Ref Software

The metadata gathered by this software is much better than others I have used. It helps by cutting down on time entering information. As a Doctoral student there is a lot of articles I must go through managing through this app syncing iPhone, iMac and iPad quickly save a lot of time. I'm continually impressed by the updates that make it better.
If we could just get the journal sites to do direct import it would be awesome.

Keep up the good work!

New update makes the app perfect!

This app is great and it is really nice that you can sync it with the desktop version.

And now, you can load citation data by the DOI numbers in the app, as you can in the desktop version.

In fact as soon as you open a PDF in mendeley it will find all of the article details automatically to archive!!! No more syncing my library on the desktop and doing that manually!!!!!!

it would be nice to have the ability to draw on the articles. The note option is great, but being able to draw in addition to that feature would be awesome. (Like in adobe reader)

Almost perfect

Multi-platform, quick archiving, decent customization options, and really good annotator for the pdfs. If you are looking for a library manager, look no further. I use it across multiple computers and my Ipad without any troubles.
