Love the PC version... Would love more functionality out of this version. Tagging/highlighting/etc, maybe a better interface. Better tablet options perhaps? Would be a fantastic aid to tech-age PhD students (i.e. me). In any case, it's arguably the best android version out there that I've tried, so there's not much to complain about here. Edit : 3 years without any updates to the software. Stop advertising support on Android if there is next to none. Knocked down a couple stars.
Terrible app, it has made the half decent Qiqqa Window's app redundant The only reason I got this app was because I thought it would have stylus support as does the Window's version. However, this did not materialize unfortunately. What was provided to us on android was a rather pathetic version of a child's attempt at an app that pales instantly in comparison with the original. The app constantly crashes and is pointless.
Could be better 5 star because it's still a work in progress but would be much better if u could sideload pdf's directly from android client to cloud. UPDATE: after so many years, it's no longer a work in progress, it is an ugly app. The desktops updates every month but this android version is not getting an update!
Currently useless Android's move to lollipop meant the menu button was no longer part of the operating system. As such, it is impossible to synchronise with the server as this is the only place Qiqqa appears to have the commands. I have tried long pushes, swipes, pull downs and anything else I can think of. Currently in a meeting having relied on my phone and trying to retrieve my document... There is no way on android lollipop that I can see. Earlier versions were fine.
Needs Work I initially had some trouble downloading the files from my desktop app. But then I found out that if you sync the library to your web library that facilitates downloading the files onto the phone. The mobile app is still missing some decent functionality like on the desktop app but it is still a work in progress at best.
Gone backwards Stopped downloading any article to tablet. Great while it did. The basic problem with qiqqa is zero user support and no diagnostics. User is continually flying blind. This touch and go means that premium membership is expensive
