Alternative to Papers2
Posted 10 July 2013 - 07:52 AM
Being really old user of Papers, they have messed this application so well that it is not worth using anymore. The main functionality that I like about this application is ability to download the full text pdfs just by clicking on the article entry. Majority of the articles used to download with ease but the as they keep on 'upgrading' I started facing ton of issues. Plus, its a memory hog from hell. The support is pathetic. (And now that they are bought by mega publisher, they don't seem to care the users anymore.)
So is there any application, that allows me to download full text right in the program with ability to add tags or make folders so that it is easier to sort the articles by the interest/type.
I don't mind paying money (I have already paid Papers twice and that is down the drain) but I would like it to do the job. I really do not have time and energy to play around this stuff.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Wikipedia has a list of reference management software, so many you should find something suitable.
...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

Honestly, inability to download papers automatically like papers will be a huge deal breaker (I still wonder why Papers developers considered messing up the application so much.)
