An android app to access Mendely from android phones would be welcome (when all bugs in the desktop app are fixed ;-)
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

...so you at mendeley have a really good market vision....

not just for access from phones, but also from non-apple tablets, most noteably the hugely popular Samsung Galaxy note / tab. C'mon guys, do it! :)

Can't believe that Mendeley has chosen to ignore Android to this extent ? I was planning to switch to Mendeley, but given the previous fact, I am having second thoughts.

I can't believe this request is more than 3 years old and there is no official app for Android.

Scholarley works amazingly well on Android tablet and phones.

Just got an Android phone and was thinking of what apps I would like... most disappointed to find there's still no Mendeley!

Glad to see that the merger has some good things planned for us users. While I don't want to speak negatively about the exiting Android clients out there, it still would be nice to see the full power of Android fully leveraged by Mendeley itself. It's so much better to know that hte company is writing its own app, rather than depending upon a single (or handful of ) developer(s) to make use of Mendeley on the go.
Here's to hoping that the wait is short.

"Henning told Wired.co.uk that it would focus on its existing product pipeline, but that the additional resources in terms of finance and data would speed things up. In addition to integrating Mendeley with Elsevier's products, a key focus will be to hire a mobile team to launch and Android app and overhaul the existing iOS tool."
Please! Mendeley, Please make an android app. I have switched to Quiqqa because I use an android tablet to read papers.
I would happily pay for such an app. It would be TOTALLY worth your time hiring a team to make this happen! We promise!!

Where is the android app???
+1 for Android. I miss being able to leave notes in the documents!
+1 for android, I am currently trying to get mendeley implemented at my company but I will hit a lot of walls without android support since it is split probably 60/40 (in favor of androids). Maybe I can get the company to require an iPad and could make the iPad a business write off :)
This would definitely be useful. The third party apps do not offer the same functionality as the desktop version and having Mendeley on phones and tablets would be a huge plus.
Urging for an official Mendeley for Android!

This would be great now that we have devices like the nexus 7, my preferred journal reader. Been using Scholarley, which is decent, but an officially supported app would be awesome
@Stefano re: AC's method. I beleive the reason for the one-way sync is because referey will screw up the database for the desktop versions. The developer of the app notes this at http://www.referey.web44.net/ saying
"Since version 0.8.1, Referey opens the database with write-access for compatibility reasons. As this may change the "journal mode" of the database you should not sync the Referey database back to Mendeley Desktop."
I'm still setting up this solution for myself as it seems to get what I want out of it (the ability to annotate pdfs on my tablet and have those show up on the desktop version). It seems like you cannot make other changes on the android version and have it sync back though. I think these will include editing the metadata and things like that. This is fine for me since using a computer should be better for this sort of thing than using a mobile device. Note that you should be able to add pdf's to the two-way synced watched folder on your mobile device and have that pop up on the desktop version but I still don't see myself searching for papers on the mobile device, I just want to read them on it.
I'm not positive what I'm saying is right but hope that helps.
I can't believe this request is more than 3 years old and there is no official app for Android. What a pity.
@AC thanks for sharing your method.
I don't understand why you duplicated the "Mendeley Desktop" folder with one-way sync though. In this way, how can you have your Mendeley up to date with the files you've annotated?
Why don't you sync directly that original folder with SugarSync?
