They need to make it work without demanding full access to the user's drive, which is prohibited in corporations.

Best citation add on I've used. The UI is a bit clucky, but overall its amazing functionality.

Huge fan of Paperpile. Super intuitive and convenient. Using the keyboard shortcuts to pull up a search box and add a paper is a breeze. I've used Zotero and Endnote and neither are as easy to use. Really solid product. Two thumbs up.

Was previously free, now pay per month. Will all of the academics who helped you bug test it get a %? I doubt it. I used paperpile back when it was free and it was a nightmare, so I would definitely not pay to use it.

How do you propose businesses survive and grow if they can't charge customers?

I love this add-on, but at the most inconvenient times it seems, there is some sort of server issue, or it creates a broken citation and ceases all functionality. Fix this and I can give 5 stars.

absolutely beyond useless. It doesn't work, and it loses your references and support is non-existant. Use something that works, like Mendelay.
