An android app to access Mendely from android phones would be welcome (when all bugs in the desktop app are fixed ;-)
Please make an app for android tablets and smartphones, we need it!
I think you should also build an application for the Android users because it would be very helpful to have all your library everywhere.
Why not for android when it is there for ipad?
Just make a ANDROID version first, then add support for SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE and it's pen.
Android version please!
to make notes and annotate papers on the Android tablet inside Mendeley App and sync them with desktop.
This would help me to work with papers during travels and then - easily to find citations while writing.
n android app is needed
The IPhone app is a good idea, but why not make the app available for a wider public? I would be interested to use Mendeley on my Nokia running on Symbian and I am sure Android and Windows 7 users will be too.
You should do apps for more mobile devices instead of staying only on iphone.
A mendeley version for andriod tablet pc like the ipad one would be great.
Create an app so you can view you online library and read journals using the mobile google android OS
Just a quick update today: Our team is making good progress on the app, and we’re happy to be able to share the first sneak-peak video of the app’s progress so far:
Please feel free to leave comments on the video page. It’ll probably stay up there for the next couple of weeks.
There was a lot of really great constructive feedback from everyone in the previous survey we sent out, so thanks a lot to all who participated. There were some clear misinterpretations of some of our design options, which means they weren’t doing their job properly, so we’ll be going back to the drawing board, and the design we implement in the first version of the app will likely be a hybrid of a few of the options, based on what we’ve learned (this was a learning exercise for our designers, rather than a straight-up highest-vote-wins scenario).
Just a reminder that you can see our roadmap and progress here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fgJdlcT8QKILPThJoa7aWDSQdmT8yQwXQMewW18HSPM/edit?usp=sharing
Thanks a lot.

Looks good. Giving the posibility to remove pdf after is great, since space on mobile devices is fairly limited
Graham Griffiths commented
Do you have a tentative dates for alpha/beta/ ... releases?
Eunjeong Park commented
You guys are wonderful and definitely doing a good job at listening! But I think It would be more delightful if the app launched ASAP, even with minimal features and rough designs. The world needs this app so bad :)
Javier Brosio commented
I had a problem when tried to use Scholarley and I hope you can fix it in the official app. I have a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (SM-T210), and the Samsung's Android version installed in the device (4.1.2) doesn't allow the app to write on files stored in an ext. SDCard.
Scholarley developer wasn't able to solve this issue, I hope the Mendeley team have better luck!!

Tom: We've been in contact with the developer of Scholarley regarding our new APIs that are about to be released. We definitely still want people to develop alternative Mendeley apps (Like Papership for Mac/iOS), but regarding the future of these apps you'd need to talk to the developers themselves.
Tom Rees commented
What does this mean for thrid-party Apps, such as Scholarley? Is development of them going to be abandoned?
Heba Adel commented
we need an app that allow not only adding and reading publications, but also has word plugin to allow adding references to word documents.
this is the most important feature most researchers need
Marcel Rousseau commented
Really good news. How is it going on? :)
Claire van den Broek commented
Good news! We've hired an Android developer, and are working hard to hire a second. Only a matter of time now :)

are you still hiring android developers?
If you started teaching an illiterate how to write android apps the day you informed us about hiring an expert, he/she would have finished it by now!
Steve Dennis commented
Sorry for the lack of updates in the last month. We're still looking for a good android developer in London. We pay well. Tell your friends!

I just wanted to personally apologise for how long this has taken to get any traction. A whole lot of people at Mendeley have been working hard behind the scenes for a very long time to get a cross-platform mobile team approved from a hiring/staff perspective. The success of the recent iOS client helped our case hugely, and we look forward to getting an Android app that's up to the standards everyone expects in 2014.
While the hiring process can take time, we've already started the design process, and look forward to including you all in this process. We are aiming for an app that is consistent with our iOS client, without being just a lazy port. We'll be posting surveys and mockups here regularly in order to inform what we're building. With so little transparency over the last few years, I feel we owe everyone that.
I'll post the first survey within the next week regarding device types and os versions that we'll be looking to support.
Thanks for your patience :)
