Do annotations sync with mendeley?

Any plans to support zotero sync as an alternative? If you were unaware, there's an active mendeley boycott/emigration after they sold out to the beast.

TL;DR: Yes, and yes.

Annotations from PaperShip are saved directly to the PDF file, so they are synced accross devices, and readable everywhere. Please note that the official Desktop app from Mendeley uses a different kind of annotations (closed to third-party developers). We hope a future release from Mendeley can improve that.

Regarding Zotero, we just started working on it! There’s still a lot of work, but it’s definitely on our roadmap.

Thanks for the interest!

If this supported zotero I would use it all the time. Looking forward to the update.

Looks great! Many of the uni students that I know have Android devices though. Any plans to make this cross plat?


It’s just a first release. No plans for an Android version yet, but we’ll see how things work out.

just looking at the site, and not having an idevice, all i could think was that this is "pdf in the cloud" i.e. a way to get data in a way that is hard to work with other tools.

also, have no idea what's mendeley.
