If you’ve read my blog, you know I’m invested in Papers. The majority of my writing workflows use the app.
I’ve been following news about the app with trepidation. Papers “teamed up” with RedCube in March of 2016. Readcube / Papers have been working on a new version of the app. Although the screenshots look reminiscent of Papers, there will be at least one major change; Papers is moving to a subscription model. I have not found pricing information yet.
The combination of a new version, and unknown pricing model, and a distrust of traditional publishers has left me wanting to explore my options.
I’m curious what app each of you is currently using for manuscript management and bibliography generation (and why). Please leave comments below.
Addendum: Beware. Updating to Scrivener 3 breaks Magic Citations in Papers. From what I’ve read online, Readcube is not saying when (or if) this issue will be resolved.
