Ratings and Reviews
good app. works well on ipad pro10.5with ios 12
group the followed journals: if it can allow me to group the followed journals, so that i can get updates correspond to each of the correspond fields and manage the followed journals in a more organized way.
papers from meetings: conference also plays an important rule in research, if the conferences is integrated into this app that would be a really all in one, ultimate tool for reading papers.
forum function: it would be great that if the app can some how integrate with some kind of discussion function, to allow reader discuss about the paper in the correlated field.

Hi, thanks for your review and for your suggestions. We really like your idea for the grouped journals and we will look into this further. We will soon be adding conference papers, but this will be accomplished after we have added as many journals as possible. Lastly, we will look into your discussion suggestion, but we will be adding some social features soon. I hope this helps. Thanks, Joe
It’s very useful app for any researchers..
After using this app for couple of days...
It is an absolute useful for any new researchers who is having difficulty to find the perfect paper for your own research.
Generally, it is well organized. Only the cons is that we can’t use the app in landscape view.
Because I am using iPad Pro, I would be glad if they make the landscape function for this app.
For general overview, it is a great app for the researchers

Hi Luke, Thanks for the review, I'm glad that you enjoy using RESEARCHER. We will be adding a landscape mode in the foreseeable future. Thanks, Joe
Great, but be careful!
When you download the app, the app ask for you to follow what topics your interested in then it will show you journals/books/papers on your topics you chosen. DO NOT follow more than 200 of the journals/books/papers it will crash the app when try’s to load in. Other than that this app is super handy!!
