Introducing: Recently Read


We’re happy to announce the release of Recently Read, our newest feature to help you get the most out of Mendeley on any device.

The new ‘Recently Read’ feature saves your reading position for your 20 most recently read PDFs across your iOS and Desktop devices. If you start reading a paper on your Desktop, you can easily finish reading it on your tablet on the couch later, or even on your phone while you’re on the bus.

Even if you only use Mendeley on one device, it’s still a great way to pick up where you left off between sessions.

We are initially launching Recently Read on Win/Mac/Linux in Mendeley Desktop (v1.14), and iOS (v2.6) which are both available to download today. Mendeley for Android, and our Web Library will be implementing the feature in the coming months.

We hope you enjoy it, and would love to hear what you think in the comments below. Please help spread the word, and contact if you encounter any bugs or issues. Thanks a lot.

These releases also bring a few new features and fixes for each platform that you’re sure to enjoy too:
