Adequate but buggy
As the only tool that allows full and easy Apple Pencil annotations for Mendeley it is a great tool. It is far more functional than the Mendeley iPad app. However the App is buggy, crashing when you have more than 20-30 PDF's (20 odd pages each) downloaded. The work around is to delete and re-download the application to ensure you stay bellow this limit.
Additionally, the app would benefit from the text smoothing for Apple Pencil available in some apps that makes hand writing more readable.
Doesn’t sync latest library additions
My Zotero seems to work fine on my Macbk. For PDFs previously downloaded to PaperShip it works very well enough for me to pay heavily for Zotero highest rung. However, PaperShip appears to go through the motions of downloading the new files into my iPad (taking a couple of hours, and not giving any errors). ALL thousands of the PDFs in the database are then listed by PaperShip. But select one it throws a full screen error (404) suggesting that Zotero has not properly synced. I cannot be sure of where the errors are because so little diagnostic information is provided. I have put in 3 requests for PaperShip support, with acknowledgements by email, but no human responses at all. Zotero help is by contrast alive and very well. So it all points to PaperShip having sunk. I’d happily rate it with a 4 or 5 if it was refloated. Any software manufacturer should regard their software as only half-baked until it comes with decent diagnostics, not just telling you to resync. If anybody can suggest another iPad app with Zotero functionality please broadcast the information.
No longer updated
This app was very good but now is no longer updated and an important functionality issue has crept in. I can’t import files found online through PaperShip, because of a ‘Cannot create document’ error. If I’ve already uploaded a file to Zotero it will sync to PaperShip and I can still annotate which is handy but ultimately, not being able to import anymore is very frustrating and makes the app rather worthless.
