Mendeley Desktop is supported under Windows 8, but not Windows RT. If you’re planning to buy a Windows-based tablet and you want to run Mendeley on it, get one running Windows 8 (not Windows RT). We’re not planning to work on a ‘Metro’ app ourselves in the near future.

This app would make my life much easier. I currently have to print out articles for meetings and classes. Having a version on my tablet would help save paper and money.

What is the latest update on your (Mendeley's) stand on an app for windows RT?
Nipun Mahajan commented
Please Make app for Surface RT. Because both are very handy....Mendeley and Surface RT..and nothing can be best combination than this
Omar Nadeem commented
Please make a windows RT app!! Surface is a productivity based tablet and for many, mendeley is a very important part of that!

hey!!!!! go to windows RT!
jacob favret commented
just find an intern to port it over and charge $5 for it. poof! you just paid his salary AND you have profit. No self respecting scientist is that much of an apple fanboy.
harry ivan commented
it is very disappointing that the Mendeley group have completely refused to come up with an app for RT. Is because they are working with iOS companies. But I would really be happy to see an RT app for Mendeley.
Erica Robyn Masters commented
I have been forced to use another program to organize my files since I can not use Mendeley on my Microsoft Surface RT. It is a huge pity, I love your system so much. I spent an unfortunate amount of time organizing my files just to find out you only support iOS systems. This was very disappointing. It is just no use to me if I can only access it on my home desktop and iPhone. Being an extremely busy professional student, my tablet is where most of the action happens and I know I am not alone in this boat.

A Windows 8 app would be fantastic. Snapping Mendeley to the side while working in the main part of the screen would be a great productivity improvement. Furthermore, it would be great if the app would work on Windows RT as well. The Surface 2 and Nokia Lumia 2520 are really nice little tablets and I would really like to use mine to read some papers and add comments.

There is an alternative solution, at least for the people who use Mendeley to cite in their papers. I think it is easier for you to develop your current MS Word plug in.
I copied the plugin file that Mendeley Desktop installs on Microsoft Word to the startup folder of my tablet. Everything is fine but I think since the plugin retrieves the bibliography information from the desktop app it fails to insert citations.
I think if you could change it in a way that it retrieves information from my library (which is accessible through web) rather than the desktop app, it will resolve the plugin issue that is inserting citations from my libraries.
That way one can use the browser interface to manage the libraries and use the plugin for citing material.

Considering the surface is the only affordable tablet that runs full office, mendeley would make it the perfect device for students and academics

I absolutely agree! I would love to use Mendeley Windows metro application.
Carli Kadish commented
I would love to have Mendeley available for my RT. It's a fantastic software, but I will have to switch if there isn't going to be a Metro app available. I love this program so please, please develop it for RT.
Imogen Bermingham commented
Please reconsider! Mendeley is a fantastic way to manage pdfs... I don't use it to cite in word, but to organise and take notes on journal articles. An RT version would be perfect... I'd hate to have to switch.
serena belluschi commented
It's absolutely necessary!! Please do the app for Windows RT.
Mariano Allo commented
I'm also using Windows RT and it is absolutely a shame having to change the software that I'm using because we don't have a compatible version. Moreover, when this version will be compatible with all windows 8 systems, including new metro apps.
Now we are forced to move to other program and I hope you'll be able to see the importance of this issue and try to solve it.

i am a PhD student from Malaysia and currently relying heavily on Mendeley for my work... it is sad to hear that Mendeley is not planning to work on RT..
Kindly reconsider for this app as it is a moving trend in Malaysia (with Microsoft's strong current positioning among lecturers and university students)...
IC Wiener commented
I agree with what appears to be the vast majority of people who use Mendeley and own a windows touchscreen device. An app is definitely required which can utilise pen functionality. Touchscreen interfaces are fast becoming the predominant method for computational productivity, software which does not follow this trend will be left behind unfortunately. Not to mention the added value it gives to Mendeley..
Omar Mian commented
Have just tried Mendeley desktop on a 10" Windows 8 tablet. Interacting with it is very difficult via the touchscreen.
Please don't dismiss the idea of a metro app on the grounds that Windows RT is currently not very popular. A metro app will be very useful for Windows 8 tablet or convertible laptop too.
