Ratings and Reviews
Useful to keep up to date with current research
Useful app to follow all the new articles published in scientific journals and really nice feature to look for key words, which at the end seems better than a google scholar notification, and to be honest just more natural than reading a “newsletter” type stuff from gscholar.
However, even if the main features are here, I think some useful things would be interested to implement, like putting in greyish the articles already seen (which makes it able to see where we left last time we update the research) and the possibility to have push notifications for the keywords selected. The “my article” are linked with Mendeley, which in my opinion is a limitation as many people don’t use it (part of it because it is owned by Elseveir) so it could be great to link it with a zotero account (although I am not familiar if there is any API limitation for that...).
Also I noticed that some journals are missing (such as Optica) which makes me still stick with arXiv newsletter + google scholar email notifications on keywords.

Hi Gregelliom, Thanks for the review and for your suggestions. We will soon be introducing push notification. We will hopefully be adding both Zotero and Endnote. If there are any journals you want, you can tell me by simply filling in this short form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdItKW1cVTBDYapugbbSShO3D9ADfLCIb-PPpOHZJ-CT0ri4A/viewform?usp=sf_lin. Also, I really like your idea of the grey read article, I will forward this on to the team to discuss. Thanks, Joe from Researcher
Research at your fingertips!! Instead of sifting through search engines trying to find articles most inline with my profession, this app allows me to pick and organize my preferences to narrow my research!! I’m a dietitian so staying up to date with research is so important. With this app, i can do it quickly and easily without having to take the time to scroll through google or Pubmed to find articles. Cuts my research time in half. In addition, i really appreciate the option to only view full text articles. Lastly, a Researcher team member emailed me to offer help with functions or questions i had. I feel comfortable navigating the app and will continue to use in my practice!
Bookmark your progress?
Very handy app to keep track of newly published papers in your field! Can definitely fill my commute time and such with reading abstracts! Just one suggestion: I hope there’s a save progress function so that we know where we were last time before exiting. So that if I want to pick up where I left off, I don’t need to scroll down (because the app always refresh and returns to top once opened) all the time. And it became practically impossible when you need to get way far down there.
