Reading papers on the iPad
After I got an iPad, though, I've dropped it.
I really love to be able to read papers on the iPad. I don't have a printer at home, and I hate reading papers on the desktop, but reading and annotating papers on the iPad is great.
Just not with Mendeley. I cannot annotate papers there, and the reader isn't really that good.
So I bought Papers for the iPad (and the desktop to be able to synchronize).
It is a really wonderful piece of software for this. I just wish that the annotations could be synchronized with the desktop as well. They are great on the iPad, but I want them on my desktop as well (damn it!).
I miss the cloud aspects of Mendeley now as well. I have to synchronize on my home computer ('cause Papers won't let me synchronize with any old computer I find nor over the internet in general), and there is no sharing of papers and annotations as in Mendeley.
I would love to go back to Mendeley, but the iPad version is a turn off for me. As soon as the iPad version improves, though, I'm likely to go back.
