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

Hi Robert! Android app is the highest feature in the ranking list without a status. From the download page it seams you are working on it, but you said you are not. Please, let us know something more about Android app timeline.
please, would help me working on my Archos tablet
This is long overdue! I bought my android tablet to read pdfs and this would make my life a lot easier!

Mendeley desktop is a fantastic piece of software that has made report/thesis writing a much easier process... if it was available as an android app I might never be able to escape :-D i can't wait!
Is there a time-line for the development of the the android app?
I support all the requests for such a beautiful extension of a beautiful software.
I'm about to move my research to another software since this is not available for android.

A must have for android app ;)
i keep checking back hoping the beta android app has been introduced....
the desktop program has made my research life much easier.
An android app would suit my study and research process perfectly
It would be great if you could add android support. Especially when thinking about the upcoming android 3 versions for tablets.
I'm working regular with Mendeley on my desktop. An Android app similar to ipad would be great to have a better excess to the library than only via web. Difficult to understand that ios was considered and android not, given also the increasing numbers of android tablets coming, e.g. Notion Ink, Motorola Xoom etc. or available (Galaxy Tab). Not everybody likes the closed Apple universe, and Mendeley itself is open so why no active development ?

Now that Android devices are consistently out-selling iPhones every quarter, an Android app would be brilliant.
Completely agree. Android phones is the fastest growing smartphone market right now and with all the companies doing hardware for supporting Android, for sure it will pass the iPhone market in the forceeable future. An Android app, a clone of your iPhone app, is a must.
hey u guys... get the mendeley app on the android too... Niz work guys
I think file uploads via the API will be available in the not-too-distant future. Will have to check what the status is on that.
Developing a web app using, say, JQueryMobile http://jquerymobile.com/ and the Mendeley API would be one way to address this problem. The Mendeley API is a bit limited, for example, you can't upload PDFs via the API. However, it might be possible to use DropBox as a way around this (assuming users store their PDFs in their DropBox folder), providing there's a way to map PDF file hashes in the API to PDF files in DropBox.
I'm an iOS user, but the Mendeley apps don't work for me as my library is too large, so even iPhone/iPad users might benefit from such a web app.
Anyone who is interested is welcome to use the Mendeley API in applications for Android or other mobile platforms.
Maybe this would be a good time to publish under GPL? Then the community might be able to make an android app based on the other apps you already have?
Or failing that, someone might make a GPL version for android anyway that uses the Mendeley API so it can interact with the Desktop application.
We have our hands full with Mendeley Desktop, iOS and Web at the moment. We're not actively working on an Android application at present, though you can access your library via Mendeley Web from Android phones and tablets.
Another vote for an android app!
It would be very nice if the developers could let us now a (very rough) time frame for when this is coming?
