Gianluca Baldassarre An application I greatly needed! Great features: (a) possibility of accessing my BibTex bibliographical repository in Dropbox from a tablet/smartphone, and not only from my office pc (b) possibility of modifying the bibliographical entries on the move, e.g. to add my comments to my ''comment'' entry field (but to save in Dropbox I have to digit the path by hand?) (c) I can open the .pdf files of the papers based on the JabRef link contained in their BibTex entry, add comments and highlightings in the .pdf file (e.g., with the external App ReplyGo that opens the .pdf), and then save the changes directly in the Dropbox .pdf file. Unfortunately, I cannot open a repository with 4000 entries and 1800 pdf files from Dropbox: the program is not capable of visualising the content of the large Dropbox directory (too many files, I think; this could be easily solved if I could directly tell the program the dropbox:///path/file.bib to open). At the end I cannot use it... : ( I give 5 stars as this is exactly the program I needed! So I really hope in the future its limitations will be solved and I can use it with my large file!!

Great App Exactly what I need. Using FolderSync to sync with my cloud share and qPDF Notes to annotate the PDFs (incl. highlighting). Looking forward to the ability to handle groups. Thanks Robert!

Just works Want references on your Android device - look no further. Fast, stable and just the ticket. I use Endnote on desktop and wanted to carry my references with me - all I do now is export using the Bibtext style and save it to my phone.

Falla importante Falta la integraci├│n con los grupos que se crean en jabRef no los permite visualizar. Esto es muy importante por favor integrenlo.
