Aziz, Lite! is the first third-part client on Android for synchronizing, sorting and downloading articles that are managed with either Papers (both 2 and 3), Mendeley or Zotero, and stored on either Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive (or even locally in the bêta/Lab features!) Syncing of your papers' library with Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive
Based on our big sister app EZPaperz (available on https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.ezbio.ezpaperz), Aziz, Lite! aims at facilitating file management for users of Mendeley and Zotero that chose to store their library database on another Cloud than the default ones.
Aziz, Lite! is the "read-only" version of a bigger project (Aziz) intended to provide editing options as well as full side note management.
Free features :
Listing of papers / books and displaying their main information (title, authors, publisher, year published, ...).
Downloading the pdf of the paper when available
Sharing the pdf of the paper when available
Searching within references
Advanced filters: favorites (Mendeley/Zotero) or flags, color labels, ratings (Papers)
- resetting library data and reference manager type
- deleting local files
- hiding advanced metadata (labels, flags, etc.)

(Now in Production) Local libraries: if you cannot put your library in a cloud, you can copy it on your local Android storage and load it into Aziz, Lite! Read our tutorial for more information: http://azizlite.ezbio.net/index.php?p=blog&id=7
(Beta) Secondary storage: you can choose to store the downloaded PDFs either on the internal memory or an external SD card!
(Beta) Fast Loading of papers: if you have a large number of papers, you can choose to load them at the same time as they are displayed, so that you can access them while the others are still loading.
