You probably know that Mendeley has an open API that lets 3rd party developers build apps that work with the platform (we have over 300 of them so far!) to offer our users even more useful tools and services.
One such app is a push notification service called CatchApp, which lets you keep track of all your updates – including Mendeley – in one feed. If you’re tempted to try it, Mendeley users can get a larger update quota at a discount. All you need to do is enter the code “mendeley” after signing up.
Working in a research group can be a hassle sometimes. Collecting information, organizing references and writing papers is a highly collaborative task. Especially when it comes to remote collaboration, transparency about who’s doing what in the project is key. That’s what CatchApp is all about. It’s the easiest way to catch up with everything your team is working on.
Mendeley has recently been added to CatchApp’s collection of integrated apps. It brings you one feed where you can follow updates in your connected apps. Whether it’s new references in shared Mendeley groups or updates on your recent paperwork in Google Drive or Dropbox, CatchApp sends push notifications to your iOS device, keeping you informed on the go.
This is the type of information that CatchApp shows you with each Mendeley update:
Supported apps include Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Evernote, Box, Trello, Basecamp, Podio, Pivotal Tracker, GitHub, Bitbucket, Zendesk, Highrise, Yammer, Salesforce Chatter, SkyDrive, Mendeley, Lighthouse, Twitter, and RSS feeds.
