We have 2 reviews for ReadCube. The average overall ratings is 2.5 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: I used Papers 3, the previous version of Readcube as a stand alone on my Ipad. However, Papers 3 is not compatible with iOS14.6. As the developer did not bother to warn the users my data is now locked in an unusable app as bizarrely, the developers have not created an option to transfer the data.
Pros: Papers 3 was fine.
Cons: I would have happily transferred to Readcube were it not for the developer's behaviour. Why transfer to another one of their products and risk losing a libary again in a few years time?
Overall Opinion: While scientific journals and documents contain some of the most important information mankind has ever produced, they are often not very fun to read, and sifting through all the material can take a long time. ReadCube aims to change all that with its comprehensive suite of tools designed to make better all things related to research material. The software's main feature is an enhanced PDF viewer. The viewer automatically displays related materials and supplements to the data on-screen, produces clickable inline references and citations, and allows fast searching of author information with the click of a button. Users can also annotate and highlight passages within the program, eliminating the need for cumbersome third-party tools. ReadCube includes integration with popular search engines and includes functionality to download relevant research papers with a single click. PDF files can be quickly added to the software's on-board library for automatic organization and fast searching. A ReadCube Team edition of the software is available to enhance research work in a group setting. The product features unlimited amounts of cloud storage space, synchronization for up to five devices, searchable tags and more. For teams that are larger than 30 people, an enterprise edition is available on request.
Pros: Includes a 30 day free trial Pricing is affordable at $55 per year
Cons: There are probably more applicable solutions for organizing non-research PDF documents, so this software's scope is somewhat limited
