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

Qiqqa -http://www.qiqqa.com- is a Mendeley alternative that supports Android annotations.
I thought it was possible to have Mendeley in my tablet lenovo
Droideley does not work at all. It would be cool to have an official app soon.
Droideley does NOT work on my nook color (running CM7) It always gives me an Open API error. I am really hoping an official app will come out soon.
Compatibiulity with the Sony Tablet S model is needed as this low level PC can be very useful for reading PDF's and inserting text with a low level Office-compaible text editor.
I use QuickOffice Pro and would value compatibility with Mendeley for inserting notes.

I would like to think that we will be seeing an some effort from Mendeley regarding the android app very soon; it IS THE TOP REQUEST! And I'm sure the independent developers who made the unofficial apps won't have any problem helping you if you allow them to!

Android has a bigger smartphone marketshare than iOS for smartphones but that's nowhere near the case for tablets
No-one can predict how the release of Windows 8 tablets will affect this and perhaps that's a reason why Mendeley are averse to committing to an in-house android app.

I first want to echo what I've seen in other comments with regards to a tablet specific version.
Also, I just want to point out that (at least last time I checked) Android still has the bigger market share than iOS. And I would imagine that within the research community there is a strong tendency towards Android due to it's higher level of openess. So, this really does seem like the most natural extension of what is already a very impressive, great system.

I agree with previous comments. I heavily use the internal reader and annotation features of Mendeley Desktop. Further the sorting options by year and read/unread status are very useful. There are some really interesting android tablets on the market and more coming in 2012, however, without a fully functional Mendeley app it doesn't make much sense. If it is possible to open the API to allow the development of internal pdf readers and syncing as well as adding annotations and importing new pdf documents to Mendeley I am fine with that.
I personally think that Mendeley Desktop is working just perfectly and I cannot really think of new must-have features (except for printing from within Mendeley Desktop), but I would mainly use Mendeley on a tablet.
I want to see the Mendeley desktop on the Anrdoid. Will be pleased.
An android app to access Mendely from android tablets would be welcome. Pinda.
I am with John Rogers, for me the main point of mendeley is that you can annotate your paper on any computer.
Without this functionality I would continue using Zotero or citeUlike.
Now, Mendeley has no advantage on tablets when compared to citeulike. (oh.... and citeulike is free)
John Rogers commented
As many people have commented there are some independent efforts on the Android market. However they are limited by what functions Mendeley expose in their API - currently both developers cannot complete their work because of the API work Mendeley still need to do.
The big thing lacking is accessing notes and annotations made in the desktop application and while i'm dreaming the ability to make notes and annotations - I don't know about anyone else but this is really what i use mendeley for - i read things make a few notes, tag and file and then i can lay my hands on that paper i read 2 months ago easily.
So Its clear you guys are not going to make an android app - and fair enough, but please make it possible for the guys who are doing this to make a great app that really works - incidently if you do finish opening the API like this then the android apps will be more feature complete than the iOS one you have...
How about it then, Mendelevium for tablet would be excellent!

For those who want an android client for Mendeley, there are at least two options in Android Market. They are not official (developed by the Mendeley team itself), but use the oficial Mendeley API (which is the reason why they created an API library to provide access to the database).
I've been using the first one; very nice, works fine, I can open the pdf and read in my cell phone (haven't tried in tablet). The second one has received good reviews too.

I couldn't agree more. I also want an Android app (for phone and tablet)!

android android android android android android android, PLEASE! thank you!
Seriously, this is the top request... ahead of making italics and other useful fuctions? Seriously?
Add syncing of my annotations and making annotations in the android app. Sorely needed. Right now annotations are tied to your local mendeley desktop database.
I just downloaded Droideley. Seems to work so far.
