I suggest you ...

android

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

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:

http://youtu.be/vMeGflwSP7A

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.

    @Elwyn Portrait and Landscape modes are both fully supported on tablets and phones, the video is just designed to show a tiny sneak peek. I'll demo it in the next video I do in a couple of weeks if you like. :)

    The preview is looking good.. But (of course, there is a 'but') I didn't see auto-rotate demonstrated.

    Please don't forget landscape mode which is very useful for larger tablets. And it is probably easier to integrate landscape mode in the early stages rather than trying to retrofit it afterwards.

    Personally (with an ASUS Transformer tablet) I would find a portrait mode only application irritating to the point where I would quite possibly not use it and stick with Scholarley which handles it nicely.

    Looks good. Giving the posibility to remove pdf after is great, since space on mobile devices is fairly limited

    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 BrosioJavier Brosio commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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!!
    Thanks!

    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.

    Thanks :)

    What does this mean for thrid-party Apps, such as Scholarley? Is development of them going to be abandoned?

  • Heba AdelHeba Adel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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

    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 DennisSteve Dennis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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!

  • Steve DennisSteve Dennis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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 :)
