Coming from Endnote, Mendeley, and Zotero I cannot recommend Paperpile enough. It is fast, convenient and works flawlessly. This is actually the first time that I can focus on writing and don't have to waste time with things like licensing problems, updates, manually downloading and inserting papers, wrong output styles, and so on. It must be hard to develop a simple, fast and good working citation manager. But Paperpile did it! See More
I've used this since it was just Papers. The ability to locate the metadata for a PDF and to locate the references and turn them into clickable links are really useful. Web import is also pretty easy. Compared with EndNote, the interface is logical, uncluttered and intuitive. See More
Easier to use interface than Zotero. Excellent for multiple ref management and Word integration. See More
