Hugely disappointed with Mendeley. With Connotea closing down, I switched to citeulike and Mendeley to keep my discovered scientific articles up-to-date. Mendeley used to sync with citeulike, but it has changed its API and this no longer works. Its bookmarklet is much weaker than citeulike's, with no clear tagging autofill and a worse workflow.

The desktop app doesn't allow me to fill in missing information by doing a DOI search, but forces me to manually add info unless its first PDF scan was OK. Database management is non-existent. I want to standardise on particular name and Journal formats, but no way to edit the database robustly. And you need very precarious hacks to get annotated Journal names. Mendeley takes quite a long time to sync and often hangs.

But if Mendeley had a solid iPad version, its myriad flaws could be overlooked, but the mobile version of Mendeley is so utterly unstable, underpowered and slow + buggy it is unusable.

Such a shame, Mendeley keeps getting lots of publicity, but it is so flawed and compromised I can't use it for its intended purpose.

FYI Colwiz appears to have CiteULike import.

This is a good, desktop citation management tool for PDFs. As noted, it is somewhat non-Mac compliant in behavior, as might be expected of cross-platform apps. It has many features in its own right, especially the cloud-based storage of citations for collaborative or on-the-go workflow. It is rather easy to use, if somewhat encumbered by its lack of Mac-centric options for keyboard shortcuts and one-click operations.

Unfortunately, WRT on-the-go workflow, the current iPad version (1.3.4) sucks. It is basically just a glorified and buggy viewer for the PDF Mendeley files. This downfall makes on-the-go management of PDF citations via Mendeley practically worthless. If you definitely need this functionality as well, look elsewhere for the time being.

How well does Mendeley work with either Pages or Mellel, as compared with MS-Word?

We abandoned Word for serious writing long ago.

I am a long-time Sente user: how does Mendeley compare?

This is a very nice Papers clone. It is freeware. If you want some higher end features using the Mendeley server you need to pay for them (this is only fair). MD is available for Mac, Linux, Windows - great for collaboration! Some glitches are: no full screen PDF modus. Opening PDFs only by double clicking, no keybord command. Display not using Apple's OSX-built-in technology but an inferior PDF display looking only slightly better than the terrible Adobe Reader PDF display. Mendeley Desktop has organize options also for books and other documents, it is not limited to magazines/papers like Papers. I would recommend MD to all users who don't want to pay for Papers and can live with the mediocre PDF display. In many parts Mendeley is much more flexible than Papers. Try it out!

Correction: Mendeley has a (hidden) full screen mode. To open a PDF full screen you have to do much clickeryclick, at least three clicks. In Papers just select and hit Space key.

It looks good, but I wish it could work with Pages documents.

An excellent application, though with a few bugs in synching with the web. Instructions are not too clear, and they assume the user will have knowledge about proxys. But developer is responsive and answers questions. Should only improve. It's already led to me developing contacts with overseas researchers and receiving some good advice.
