Mendeley for iOS Updated

Our latest update for the Mendeley iOS app has just gone live on the app store.

We’ve listened to your feedback and have added the most often requested feature: Sort documents by Title / Author / Year / Imported Date.  Tap the icon in the bottom right of the document list to change the sort order.  Authors are sorted by the last name of the first listed author, and we’ve changed how author names are displayed to “Lastname F,” (it was previously F. Lastname) to make this sort method more obvious.

Other changes include:

  • Fixed an error when opening documents from another app via “Open In…”
  • Fixed a bug with annotation syncing
  • My Publications and Favorites can now show more than 20 documents
  • .pdf file extension is shown when sending files via email
  • Fixed a crash when downloading PDFs from a search results list
  • Misc. other bug fixes


What’s next?

We have a plan for the next 6 months or so, but we want to make sure we’re building the stuff you need, and in the right order.

Please vote on the options below (which will all be coming at some point), and we’ll use this to help us prioritise what we build next.  You can always vote or request features at any time on our feedback forum too. (please set the category as “mobile” when requesting mobile features)

Help, I’m still having sync problems.

If you’re having trouble syncing, try logging out of the app and back in.  This will force a full re-sync of the library.  Once you’ve done this initial sync, future syncs should be faster, as it will only download documents which have been updated since the last sync.

If this doesn’t resolve your problem, please contact our support team via the app (the link is located in “Settings”).
