Amazing app

I had been using the Academia from last 5 years, its been amazing with the website. It helped me to upload and publish my articles to the people. Its the most convenient way to find more stuff for reading and acknowledging the work by the people in your field.
But after the app comes in it became a part of day to day life because now we can use it on the go anyway anywhere anytime.
Thank you for this app and website.

Persistent Issues hamper an otherwise excellent and useful app

I’ve used academia for a good few months now and have enjoyed it. However, recently, I’ve run into a key issue that pretty much hamstrings it. Any time I try to actually read an article, the article’s text simply doesn’t load. The “About” and “Related” sections load near instantly, but the “Read” section, the actual text of the article I’m wanting to use, never does. I could understand if it were a matter of these articles being paywalled like some results on the app are (even if I find paywalling content when features are already paywalled disagreeable, but that’s a minor issue), but there’s no prompt alerting me to needing to be a premium member or the like, just an infinite loading screen. This says nothing of the hard crashes caused by going to specific papers from the links Academia will periodically email to me. Academia is still useful for keeping track of particular scholars and publications in my field, but right now, it’s useless for what I actually want to use it for: reading the articles that it helps me to find.

Issues with mentions

This is not an overall review; I find this app generally to be useful and interesting. But I can’t figure out why the “mentions” feature is so primitive. I am quite curious about mentions of my publications, but for some reason the system seems to only scan for “C Laughlin,” and does not learn from my hundreds of responses to “this is me/this is not me,” even that I am not named McLaughlin (some materials apparently come in with a space between the “c” and the “L”), and it even captures references in which the “C” and the “Laughlin” are not part of the same person’s name! Not to mention the other Charles Laughlins in other fields like sports medicine, anthropology, physics, biology, and education, some of whom were publishing books and articles when I was in elementary school. At least the algorithm should capture only “Charles Laughlins,” and only ones who began publishing in the late 1990s about Chinese literature and culture, without me having to pick through over 90% false hits.
