I can resist anything, except temptation! (Oscar Wilde)

in general

I saw ReadCube on Nature’s twitter and became curious. I downloaded it and immediately found that it is exactly what I need. It does the following:

  1. Search articles, download PDF versions via university proxy
  2. You can mark the read articles, also you can star your favs.
  3. Recommendation. It is amazing. You can find interesting or prominent articles you haven’t read before.
  4. Full text search (I mean full text)
  5. PDF reading, annotation and commenting. Simple and almost bug free. Specially I find the reference list on the right sidebar very useful. You can simply click on each reference while reading the main article.
  6. Free
  7. Sync via multiple computers (I have not tested this feature yet).
  8. Simple, yet rich and intuitive UI.

It is rich, intuitiveĀ and simple. I plan to use it in combination with Zotero. Zotero is good for reference management and adding citations to my articles. But for my personal PDF management and reading, I find ReadCube a superior choice.
