Great app for researchers. However...
ResearchGate 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.
Nice idea, poor execution
I would like to use this product, but seldom do. First, there is no simple way to upload peer-reviewed publications or easily see which ones have been uploaded. My account remains woefully incomplete with no simple way to update it. I don’t have time to do this manually. It should be able to track my publications automatically, if I’ve authorised it, and include them in my bibliography. The app does not appear to facilitate finding my publications in anyway, let alone conference presentations etc and instructions on the website are absent. Second, there is no iPad app. The web page remains the most robust interface, but provides little guidance on how to use it, let alone link it to other accounts, like LinkedIn. Research related discussions are a great idea, however few of my colleagues appear to use this on a regular basis. If some of these limitations were addressed, it might facilitate uptake.
Why is an app for academics so bad?
As an academic I have come to value the Research Gate (RG) platform - while using my computer at work. Consequently, I’m at a complete loss for words to describe how disappointed I was while using this app on my iPad. The experience was so bad I, the app was forgotten until this morning, and I can’t bring myself to use it anymore. How can the people associated with RG be involved with something this bad? You literally have access to an amazing pool of talent at your fingertips. My colleagues and I, along with my students, use tablets everyday. For the love of all things digital, please update and improve this app.
No iPad Optimization? It’s 2019.
As a scientist, I often use research gate’s online platform to troubleshoot issues with my protocols. Many scientists these days use iPads for work. Not their phones. So not having this app optimized for larger displays is pretty disappointing. Please develop a version of this app that supports and takes advantage of the larger display. Especially with iPad OS around the corner. If inspiration is lacking, see how Slack does it. I’m giving 2 stars just for having the app in the first place. Will update upon seeing improvement
App doesnt work
It asks me to login before viewing a document but I have forgotten my credentials so I tried to login via Facebook and it redirects to a blank page showing no login page or anything. If this is the case then how are we going to view documents redirected to this app? Where is the signup option for ResearchGate? Do we have to manually go to the website on a browser to signup again? Where is the convenience for us users? So since I amare inconvenienced by this how about I rate you 1 star which is very generous of me and you continue to deny me usage of the app. Thank you.
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 researchgate 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
Frustrating to have lack of features.
This is app lack features of desktop version. Like you can’t ask questions. Also there is no organized way like if someone wants to learn a topic all random question answers are there. They can have Quora style best answer also they have software glitch where some answers show up repeatedly. This is annoying that simple question you can’t ask through mobile app then what is it worth for. Removing app.
poorly linked to account
I find this app frustrating. I get email request messages on my phone from ResearchGate, but when I go to the app to answer these requests i find they are missing. The data in the app are out of date by a week or two. This makes it impossible for me to answer peoples requests from my phone. So I’m finding the app of little use for me, after my initial exploration.
Seems like a great app
Really enjoy following new research untouched by media agendas. But my institution is not listed.
Questions are important
So far so good, but the question and answer function is a very important part of RG. We currently need to go to Settings, and then be transferred to a web browser version of RG for questions. Please bring this into the app.
The app still lacks a lot more updates. Recommends on your answers cannot be seen adding question tool is not available. I wish they make a major update.
Saved My Life
Researchers all through out the USA are wonderful. I highly recommend downloading this site.
Just let me use the website!
I‘m an iPad user. ResearchGate points to this app when I try to register. I downloaded it and it looks awful on iPad, because it‘s for iPhone only and doesn‘t allow horizontal view. I don‘t even need this on iPad, I just needed to register on the website and download a PDF.
I really like research gate but
This app needs some work it is not compatible on all devices and looks awful on my I pad pro... please fix this I would really like to use this app on my devices
