Papers for iPad is a revolutionary and remarkable way to read, organize and share your personal library of research. Quickly find PDF articles from your library and read them in glorious full screen on your new iPad.
Building on years of experience working with publications on the desktop and iPhone, Papers for iPad is the greatest way to read PDFs in the office, on the move, or on the sofa. However, PDFs are only the start, Papers for iPad features a complete set of professional tools to help you organize, annotate and expand your personal library of research.
The new iPad adds the finishing touch to Papers for iPad, which fully supports the glorious high resolution display of the latest generation iPads. Your articles are crystal clear and text is laser sharp.
Papers for iPad helps you remember the most important parts of the research publications you read by allowing you to select and highlight interesting text passages. You can even use multiple colors to code for different types of sections.
The user interface is simple and intuitive and accurate text selection is no problem at all thanks to the loupe that pops up the moment you tap and drag across the page. And did we mention text selection works perfectly fine with columns too?
In addition to text highlighting you can capture all the ideas, comments and thought you have while reading your papers. Just tap and hold and a sticky note appears that allows you to type as much as you like. A red pin will help you quickly locate where you left your notes, almost like Google Maps for your Papers!
And of course your highlights and notes sync with Papers on your Mac** so your notes and highlights travel with you wherever you are.
There are many ways to import your PDFs into Papers for iPad. Obviously the preferred way is if you have a Mac and also use Papers for Mac**. The two apps can wirelessly sync their libraries. But also without a Mac there are plenty of ways. You can upload PDFs directly via iTunes, or you can import PDFs attached to an email from Mail on the iPad. Alternatively, use the Papers bookmarklet to open a webpage you found in Mobile Safari and download the PDF from there. Or you can use the built-in search engines to search for articles and download the PDFs.
With Papers for iPad you can take your library of research publications, authors and journals wherever you need it. Quickly filter your articles to find something interesting in a journal club, pinch to zoom in on an important chart with colleagues at a conference or relax with the latest articles over coffee.
Create new collections of articles, quickly sort publications by author or journal and see the results straight away on iPad's wonderful, giant touchscreen. The PDF you're looking for is never more than a few taps away.
Found an interesting article a friend or colleague would like? Drop the details into an email to share. Or even better, send it directly to his copy of Papers for iPhone or iPad if he's on the same wireless network.
It's just as easy to find a new article from an online repository as it is from your own personal library with Papers for iPad. Use Papers' built in repository search tools to look up publications in PubMed, Google Scholar, Web of Science, Arxiv, ACM, JSTOR and more. When you find the PDF you're looking for Papers will automatically download and organize it for you.
Papers for iPad supports EZ-Proxy settings, allowing you to make use of your Institute's access to journals, publications and library from wherever you are.
Whether you're organizing on the move with your iPhone, reading with your iPad or working on your Mac, your personal library of research will always be up to date.
Research articles added to your library on the move, including your notes and highlights, will be imported to your desktop as Papers for iOS synchronizes with Papers for Mac OS X wirelessly and vice versa, along with your latest collections, smart folders and settings.
Papers for iPad is bundled with Papers for iPhone: if you already own Papers on iPhone, just sync your iPad with iTunes to get started!
