Design UI unusable on iPhone X and newer phones
Update 26Feb2019: Well, clearly condone at RG is listening to concerns about UI mad functionality. In the PSY month they have issued half dozen or more updates. Works fine now on iPhone XS. Still some glitches in interface and limitations on functionality vs online version. But a huge improvement.
Original Review: The app seems to have nice features but because the graphical UI is poorly done on newer iPhones (unclear its actually coded for them, but if so they need a new coder). The result is that the interface elements such as drop down and back arrow are overlapping with system elements like time, location services, network and battery life. As a result, it’s nearly impossible to get those app buttons to register. It also looks poorly on these screens because both the top and bottom of the app are clearly not optimized to fit the screens well. It’s just off. I emailed them several months ago but no fix has occurred. Given it’s nearly u useable hard to give much over one star. I wouldn’t criticize for lack of compatibility with bleeding edge iPhone that was released, say, a week prior. But this screen configuration is over 16 months old and on Apple’s FOUR most recent models.
Great app for researchers. However...
ResearchGate finally has an app! I love this! It’s very convenient to see new articles from the scientist I follow. I particularly like the easy access to my messages with its own tab. I also like that I cam easily access the research items I follow by tapping the tab on the upper right corner. Also very convenient to see my profile and stats. I can download papers and upload them to Drive or Dropbox.
HOWEVER, I would like to be able to search articles not just researchers using the search bar on top. Another feature that I’d like to have access to is the questions. It doesn’t seem to have a tab or a way to access them through the app. Being able to ask and answer questions on the go using the app would be great.
Looking forward to more updates and will continue to use it.
Needs iPad version that works in landscape mode
I find the app very good but it appears to be made for the iPhone and when using the app on an iPad the app does not function in landscape mode so the iPad has to be lifted into portrait mode which using one hand and difficult to type efficiently.
If I am missing an iPad version that already works in landscape mode apologies, otherwise an iPad version would be helpful. Thanks.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
