I've been a huge fan of Papers since early 0.x betas. Papers 2 started poorly but matured into a good workable tool. I've tried the Papers 3 beta and won't be returning to it until the information presentation is up to scratch. A vast screen full of pale grey type floating in white space is not an effective way to deal with large lists of information. To couple it with eccentric highlighting practices effectively distracts the user instead of supporting a clutter-free, efficient and standard interface. When I am hunting my library for the paper which said the thing I need to back up my idea, I don't want to be straining to read it. Black type, Mekentosj, every other application uses it for a reason.
Although the iOS synchronisation was a dog, to put it kindly, the requirement for a paid DropBox account to sync libraries larger than 2GB (mine is 12GB) is venial and lazy. If I pay for two of your products, don't make me pay for an ongoing file synch service because you can't transfer data between them cleanly.
Really disappointing. Hope we see a rapid improvement, at which time I will update to a positive rating.

Sorry - that should be "venal", not "venial"
