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
can not agree more
Erik Reinertsen commented
Should be optimized for tablets first, no?
I's really disappointing that we Android users have to wait for that long. Shame you, Mendeley
Agreed, tablets too.
yes please. For both phones and tablets.
Yes! Android becomes much more important than the iPad / iPhone versions.
2nd ranked request. It may be true that the ipad is the most used and professional/research oriented plateform. But let's face it, many people use android. And as a student, I'd like to buy a crappy sub 200$ tablet just for web mail and mendeley ...
If no mendely android app (or maybe HTML5?) comes out in a near future I will have to buy an ipad and I might as well use papers with a student discount ...
I am really waiting for an Android official application from Mendeley !!!
yes I have been waiting for that for too long
I want to provide more support to this idea, but I have some bugs reported and I don't have more votes. :-(
PLEASE WORK IN ANDROID APP BEFORE WE FIND MENDELEY ALTERNATIVES.

We will be w8n for a android app!
Android Application to access Mendeley would be welcome for most of us. I hope they will develop it soon.
Just thought I'd add some references regarding the smartphone market share in the UK: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/03/03/nielsen_smartphone_stats/ http://www.onlinemarketing-trends.com/2011/04/great-britain-smartphone-marketshare.html in the US a similar thing is happening: http://www.businessinsider.com/android-iphone-market-share-2011-4 it seems Android is rapidly becoming the largest smartphone OS. (Don't know about tablets though, Android still very new there)
Thanks for seeing it through.

The home page has been updated to remove any mention of an Android app for the moment. Apologies for the delay getting that sorted - the web update for this week included some largish changes in other areas and was delayed by a few days.
I appreciate the enthusiasm. We'll keep watching feedback from various sources.
So yeah, the website still says Android version coming soon, 10 days later. What a load. It should at least state that whatever Android apps exist are going to be third-party, unsupported and in all likelihood less functional than the iOS app. At least then it'd be honest.
Do plz add support for android. Just made the switch from iPhone to android and was not aware that you do not support the latter.

Wow! This is now the 3rd ranked feature! :)
@robert.knight: I would suggest Medeley to carry out a survey about what mobile platforms the users would wish to see an app for (iOs vs. Android, at least), so you could check if your assumption about market shares still holds here.
Good luck Petr! We appreciate your efforts, and complaining to Mendeley proper shouldn't be taken as denigrating efforts of 3rd party devs like yourself. But I sort of doubt that capacity is lacking when they're rolling out new features for the iOS app; seems more like a matter of will.

Hi guys. I am sure that the mendeley team is working hard and that there is simply no human capacity to develop the android app. So I have decided to try to develop such an application with an usage of the Mendeley API.
