I was so upset that I hadn't found Paperpile sooner! It has simplified finding and adding references with PDFs as well as writing papers. I started using this software last year and I am surprised by how many students and academics don't know about it. It has made being my nerdy self so much easier. No matter what device I am one - cell phone, tablet, or laptop - I can add interesting articles and reports I come across and organize it right from the beginning. It makes writing papers using Google Docs an amazing experience - just note that you can only be logged into the Google profile associated with Paperpile. I have a separate browser profile that I only log into using my connected account. You can even share sources with people who do not have Paperpile. Even if you are not a student or researcher, it is a great tool if you like to stay on top of trends in your field. I can imagine this would be great for reporters, bloggers, and other content creators who want to be credible. Thank you for such a great product that just works.

Simplesmente o melhor programa para organizar referências. A integração com GDocs é perfeita, posso escrever textos em qualquer lugar, sempre tendo os meus artigos à mão.

对于拥有几个终端并且需要经常切换的用户来说这款软件非常好, 但国内用户来说,google drive是硬伤。同时有个建议,如果存放了量达到几百篇文章仍然采用无限滚动就不大现实了,而且如果能自动识别网站的Pdf格式附件让用户自行选择会更好。总体说来,这是我用过的最舒服的。
