I've not upgraded to Papers 3 from Papers 2 because of the terrible reviews. However, staying with Papers 2 also has its problems. The Citations feature in Papers 2 often crashes when entering references. I submitted a bug report, and after three responses over six weeks, the programmers were unable to solve the problem and reported that it will not be fixed/updated (unsurprising, I guess). I was offered a free copy of Papers 3, which was nice. However, as I wrote above, given the terrible experience people have had with Papers 3, I'm loathe to upgrade to it.

I tried 4.0, and was disappointed in how much was lost compared to 3.0. I'd say this is an alpha release given how much has been stripped out.

Sure - what was lost (to me):
All NNW3 tabs/thumbnails. Every single one.
Send to Instapaper: gone.
Preferences are down to two panes
Style sheets - gone.
Sort by arrival order: gone
Most of the keyboard shortcuts I've used (e.g. shift-command-arrow to go to tabs): lost

Horribly damaged my iPhoto library. Thumbmails rotated and resized, pictures lost, wrong faces assigned. Holy guacamole, do not use this to clean your iPhoto library. The rest of the app is great, but who cares about that now?

I'd post this to Macpaw's forums, but their forum registration does not work correctly.

The developer is very responsive and always interested in adding libraries. This program is incredibly helpful in rounding up books on their due date. I highly recommend it.

NNW crashes about every 20th tabbed window I close. I contacted the developers, but they had no clue. But I guess if it's free, then there's in incentive to be curious, right?


Probably time to find a new news aggregator.

Completely broken in 10.8.
