Great concept. Has some weird UX quirks like having to restart a feed when youve already seen the first 10 items, the bookmark button looks like its default is bookmarked, the UI is very minimal and rough around the edges in an unfinished looking way. The papers only seem to go back 10 months? And as far as I'm aware you can't browse popular articles by keyword, which is a shame and would help filter past keyword. You can't (re)prioritize your keywords.

Really love the concept. I think it should allow you to easily filter by freely available articles, and those that require you to buy, like Springer or Wiley. Also, the PDFs doe arXiv articles don't load..which is certainly a hindrance. However, this does allow easy saving and bookmarking of titles for later review or search. With a few minor tweaks to the loading of docs, easy sorting/grouping by field, and such, this would be phenomenal.

Hi Simranjeet, Thank you very much for taking the time to review the app! We are actually going to shortly add and label open access content to the app from over 50K publishers. Also, thanks for pointing out issues with the PDF loading - I will pass this bug on to colleagues. Best wishes, JOE

This is an amazing app for staying up to date on research. It's convenient how it can natively link with my university to provide access to different journals. My largest complaint is that this app doesn't offer a widget on Android. It would be a lot more convenient to have a constant feed of papers on my home screen, where I can causally see papers I'd enjoy without needing to open the app.
