    Saved My Life

    Researchers all through out the USA are wonderful. I highly recommend downloading this site.

  • By Gabs Palomo

    Great app for researchers. However...

    this app finally has an app! I love this! It’s very convenient to see new articles from the scientist I follow. I particularly like the easy access to my messages with its own tab. I also like that I cam easily access the research items I follow by tapping the tab on the upper right corner. Also very convenient to see my profile and stats. I can download papers and upload them to Drive or Dropbox. HOWEVER, I would like to be able to search articles not just researchers using the search bar on top. Another feature that I’d like to have access to is the questions. It doesn’t seem to have a tab or a way to access them through the app. Being able to ask and answer questions on the go using the app would be great. Looking forward to more updates and will continue to use it.

    Useful app - no dark mode

    It’s a nice app that allows to read research articles on your phone. It would be great to have a dark mode option on the next update.

  • By mrKrabzÜknow

    Seems like a great app

    Really enjoy following new research untouched by media agendas. But my institution is not listed.

    App needs work like iPad version TouchID/FaceID

    App is good but could use several improvements to make it more user friendly 1. Could use an iPad OS version that works in landscape mode compared to forgoing the app and just using a browser on the iPad to access the web site. Right now I think a browser is better on the iPad. 2. Addition of TouchID and FaceID login adds a little more security for those who feel login security is not necessary for such a specialized blog. If the people at this app feel extra security is not needed remember me at least makes it easier not to have to login continuously. Maybe the people at Apple can assist in adding these new features if it’s felt the app should be improved rather than just using a browser Thanks
