There are still some bugs in my, nonetheless, favourite article and reference manager Papers 3. Most notable is the reading list which seems great in principle—it even sync to the web now—but in practice is rather useless as, more often than not, it simply refuses to add new papers to the list. However, as a paper manager it is now really good. Syncing works, including annotations which now follow the paper between the devises (although free hand written notes is still not two way—but that is apparently in the works). Highlighting have been improved and the reading experience on both the iPad and the Mac is rather pleasant. What I haven’t done in a while is using Papers as a writing reference program à la Endnote. (Presently, I add and manage my references manually.) But maybe it is nowtime to go all in on Papers 3.
