It’s finally happening. This June (three short months from now) we will be launching the first version of Mendeley for Android! We’ve done everything we can to ensure that we’ve built an app that sets a new standard for quality in the world of Android reference management apps.
- Read, highlight & annotate PDFs from anywhere
- Sync annotations & documents across all your devices
- Browse your Mendeley library and groups online or offline
- Search your library for keywords in the Title, Authors, Publication or Abstract
- Save PDFs to your Mendeley library from other apps or your web browser
- Edit document details (Title, Authors, Publication details, etc…)
- Download or remove PDFs on demand, to easily manage device storage space
- All features are available on your Tablet or Phone
- Fully compatible with Android Lollipop (supports Jellybean 4.1.2 and above)
- Plus it’s FREE!
Design & Quality
When we set out over a year ago to create this Android app, our goal was to create an app that felt fully at home on your Android device, but was consistent enough with our iOS app to enable us to develop features quickly and easily across both platforms. Like our other apps, we aimed for a clean, professional feeling design that fades into the background and lets you focus on the content as you work or study.
We’ll be busy finishing up and testing the final bits and pieces over the next couple of months, with the help of our 40 amazing beta testers. Here’s what some of them have been saying:
“Finally a free, robust, clean, simple and efficient application, the piece that was lacking in the reference management family. It takes academic productivity to another level.”
“What makes having Mendeley on Android so significant for me, is that for the first time since I started my career I don’t have to print out papers to be able to read them. Reading them on a tablet works great, especially now that we can also highlight text.”
We know waiting is hard, but we can’t wait to get it into your hands and hear what you think. Remember, this is only the beginning. We have a bunch of great mobile improvements planned for later in the year on both iOS and Android.
