Great one-solution tool for pdf management, annotation, searching, and so on, as well as using as a reference manager.

Lists of papers in the extension and in the library are not in sync. Developers are working on it for years without success. Support is nice but that's all they can provide.

1. Multiple times, import does not work. 2. when it works, it does not automatically recognizes the proper file name so i have to go to readcubes delete everything then search the paper through readcubes to add it to library to get proper name - this is very time consuming. (Mac desktop app, Chrome browser)

This largely works for importing into my Papers library, but with 2 catches. 1) The importer appears to allow you to select a collection/list to import the paper into, but when you go to your library, the new paper is not actually associated with the selected collection/list. (Mac desktop app, Chrome browser) 2) The alphabetic order for selecting a collection puts all capital letters before all lowercase letters. So Zoo comes before aardvark.

Please keep going! I have been using Mendeley for years! But Mendeley is slowly dying "thanks to" Elsevier. Recently, I discovered ReadCube, and find it fantastic. I really hope that ReadCube can be better and better! Please Keep Going!

This might be a helpful extension for people in other circumstances, but if you're here because (like me), you're trying to get university access to an article/book from Wiley or some other publisher and they forced you down this rabbit hole, stop now and save yourself the trouble. This is not a service, it's a wall, and it's inhibiting research by bogging people down and, in my case, not even working after I went through all the trouble.
