Customer Reviews

Real fantastic piece of Software

Mendeley is just a fantastic software which helped me immensely in my academic life. It has saved me from a huge amount of work by helping organise books and article references, as well as its PDF files. The feature of automatic referencing in several international references standards do also help me being more productive and concentrate my energy in thinking and writing than in managing the chaos of files and folders in a file system of any computer. And there is the cloud availability, and free space in this cloud, and is a must have for academic life at any level.

PDFs not available for download

Spent a whole day adding and uploading my pdf literature library to my Mendeley library. Installed this app and signed in and only a handful of random papers were available for download. Went back to my desktop Mendeley library to find all the pdf uploads were missing. Not sure how they all got removed, but perhaps from syncing with my iOS Mendeley app. Very frustrated with this at the moment, thinking I should just stick with organizing my pdf lit library manually.

Keeps logging me out every few hours

I've been using Mendeley for a while now and have liked it up until now. I have been kicked off multiple times in one day and have had to repeatedly log in to my account in order to keep reading. This is incredibly frustrating, and I hope the developers fix it in the next version, otherwise I'll be looking for a different journal article reader.
