Researcher has evolved massively over the past 6 weeks. As there have been regular updates and some rather significant changes to the app, you may have missed an important update that may make your research process more productive and delightful. So if you haven’t updated your RESEARCHER app recently or if you are curious about Researcher’s change over the last 6 weeks, here’s what we’ve done:

iOS

Added Zotero as a new reference manager option

  • Based on popular request, we have added the option to sync with Zotero in addition to Mendeley so that each bookmark you create instantly populates your reference manager library

Included Night mode

  • Prefer to do your reading at night? Go into your profile and switch on ‘night mode’ making it easier on your eyes when you browse papers

Implemented an indicator showing when new papers are in your feeds

  • We know that it isn’t always easy to recognise when new papers have been added to your various feeds. To help you out we’ve added a dot which indicates when this has happened so you know at a glance
