Well.. it worked for one day

After that, it’s either not loading or just crashing. I’m so upset that a bit reason I bought my iPad was to do readings and now I can’t access them the way I’d wanted. I might as well use my laptop now.

This app is garbage. Please fix and make it .. not garbage.

Doesn’t work with iPadOS 13

Crashes immediately after opening. Don’t download!

Full of bugs

I use Mendeley on my iPad Pro 12.9 3rd. After I update to the ipadOS 13, it cannot be used anymore. Every time I open it, it will crash and does not response any more. Hope your engineers and experts can fix the bugs ASAP. I really enjoy read and marks papers on Mendeley.

good luck!
