Good app, please consider the following

The app is overall good. However, to make the app a great resource for reading and annotating papers, please consider better Apple Pencil integration (double tapping, scrolling with finger while in annotation mode with pencil, etc.). In addition, for some reason, switching between apps from EndNote does not seem to be working. Finally, the search function for new papers to add to the library should be improved as well (right now, I primarily rely on the Mac app to add new papers and sync). The web interface is not particularly helpful. It would be easier to search directly in the app and import the paper right into the library.

Great app, room for improvement

The lack of a good iOS app had moved me away from the gold standard of reference apps, which is endnote.
To my surprise Endnote has made a great come back! Specifically:
1) iPhone app
2) great integration with pubmed and google scholar and easy downloading of citations
3) create temporary citations, which in conjunction with endnote web allow for a 100% iOS workflow to create bibliography on scientific articles. WOW!
4) the PDFs of the references can be shared and are not locked in inside the app

There are a couple more things that if they get incorporated, then they would improve even more the great experience. These things in order of perceived (by me) complexity are:
1) allow the customization of the info that gets presented about an article. Specifically I don’t like that I have to “dig in” to find my research notes about an article, I would like them to show up on the top
2) allow for subgroup creation
3) allow the PDFs to be accessed by files app
4) automatic citation creation for newly imported PDFs (similar to what the desktop app does)
5) automatic download of PDFs (similar to what the desktop app does)

Really nice experience. Some improvements necessary.

The overall use of the app is great. The improvements in pdf annotation and support for Apple Pencil are a life changer.
I do most of my readings on the iPad and manage my library on the Mac app, which is really slow compared to the iOS version. However, a really important feature is not present in the iOS version. How to filter and/or change the read flag for a reference. Once I read, and annotate the document on the iPad, and sync my libraries, on the desktop app the reference still is flagged as unread. The same on the iPad is not trivial to find out which references I read or not. That’s the only reason of not given the app a 5 star.
