It's still the best reference manager out there. Intuitive, user-friendly, best workflow for finding and then integrating references from any application on the Mac. Great for researching a large library. Unfortunately, it has been bought by Readcube, which still is lagging behind with integrating the functionality of Papers 3. So the future is a bit unclear, but I will stick with Papers 3, until Readcube Papers reaches that level.

I've worked with a couple of free reference managers and they all had their issues, so I tried the paid version of papers, but it's much better than the free once. It's buggy, slow and reference information doesn't update probably, updating multiple items at the same time doesn't work properly. If you're hoping to finally get a decent working reference manager and are willing to spend money on it, don't go for Papers3

Can you actually but the program for fix a amount or you have to pay monthly for a year subscription? This will be my first app to organise my research documents. Is it worth it or should I deal with the free versions first?

Pros: User friendly (when it works, which is the exception). Cons: Crashes constantly, freezes, rescinds permission to integrate citations into word documents, unpredictable, which is extremely inconvenient when you are trying to make a deadline. Tech support only periodically responds to requests for assistance. Summary: Would not recommend.

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".

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.

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...
