Ratings and Reviews
Keep hoping...but, sigh.
As a long Paper3 user, who always loved ReadCube as well, I was encouraged to purchase ReadCube Pro nearly a year ago by ReadCube support when I asked what was the best course of action to maintain my libraries and functionality in the long run. I cannot express my disappointment more to say that we are still awaiting a real fusion of these apps, similar to what they have shown in a blog, but instead we get the poorly functioning ReadCubePapers iOS app that is a weak “patch” until a real hybrid emerges. The annotation is extremely poorly responsive, even with latest updates on an 2018 iPad Pro with Apple Pencil 2.0. The other functionality is far worse than Paper3 was years ago. The company needs to get their act together and return to a Papers3 model. It’s clear they just want the revenue from cloud storage subscribers and that is understandable, just get it done soon - and give those of us who purchased both Papers3 and ReadCube a free upgrade/subscription for a year. Fix the annotation so it is more fluid and easy to use, please.
It does the job, but leaves room for improvements.
It is easy to add papers, the cross-device functionality is good and fast, so I can find a paper on my desktop, drag-and-drop, catch the bus or just pick up my tablet, and pick up where I left off. It does a good job of searching to find documents as well as automatically resolving citations. But it leaves a lot of room for improvement in annotations (I’d like to hand-write notes and scribble more easily!) and there’s no way to manually edit the Year field, which is just weird. Adding tags or some folder structure (like Sente had) would really help managing larger libraries.
Overall a good option, it will be great if they can continue to improve.
Essential for scientist
This app has become necessary for me during my PhD endeavor. It provides a good platform for organizing and managing my papers library, also, tools for accessing online articles are friendly and intuitive, with the possibility of synchronizing the library between multiple devices, specially my laptop and iPad.
I wish it had better or more tools for editing articles. I use the app in my iPad Pro, with Apple Pencil. But cannot write down hand-written notes. I think that’s a necessary feature that need to be implemented in order to make the app more appealing and functional or just to make it perfect for scientists.
