Awful software. Papers 1 and 2 were great. Papers 3 leave well alone. Go elsewhere, save your money and time. Too many software glitches and poorly constructed compared to papers 1 and 2.

Papers 3.4.23 works in Catalina. The app works fine for what I do and I've had it for a long time. But if it doesn't suit you, I've read that Bookends is a good alternative.

Version 3.4.21 (581): the claimed (initial) support for Catalina doesn't work anyway! It won't crash but it's not responding.

Anyone tried the new version? Seems like it is a version "4".

I took the trouble of creating a MacUpdate account just to leave a bad review for this app. Paper2 used to be great, but Papers3 is a useless piece of crap that behaves as though it is in full beta stage. Expect regular sudden crashes (software exits) and other bugs. DO NOT BUY, LOOK ELSEWHERE!

I used it since inception and it was a great product. Unfortunately since v2 developers kind of lost direction and now it's just a really buggy piece of cranky software that doesn't do any real good. Now even subscription based ?

You really have to inflict it on yourself...

According to the Papers team on Twitter, the new version of Papers/Readcube will be subscription only, and not use Dropbox anymore. I'm done with this program.

Used to be so good, papers1 loved it, papers2 added some useful functions, like "copy settings", awesome!, abandoned some others, like simply hit space bar for full few... timesaver. I want quick look as full screen!! Now: Papers 3… looks less colorful, less fun, - red flags turned black, purple folders turned grey... where are my buttons: mail, print … have to go through too many steps to just send a pdf, or print some. Where is the awesome "sound" when sending pdf by mail?? I have the feeling this turned into windows grey world... no fun! I want papers back!!!! Most important : why is it so much slower than papers 2 ???

… and after all the negatives you mention, you give the program 5 stars? What's wrong with you, mate?

So many visual bugs - large chunks of pdfs are seemingly overlaid with white squares that disappear when you click on them. The developers know about it apparently, but as their bug ticket system is private, no one else can know that they know until they are asked. Uggggh. And I don't have much hope for this being fixed anytime soon, as I think the programmers are a skeleton crew after the ReadCube merger. Every time I write a bug in (the ticket for which is forever marked private) the response I get includes some text pimping ReadCube as an alternative. No! Just fix Papers - to heck with ReadCube!

Hopeless now, almost unusable! ReadCube has drained the resources supposed to be used to fix bugs in current version.
