Top Pcmac Reviews

  • My go-to app now for research, organizing content, summaries

    By JimK (Pcmac user)

    I had used another app ‘fluid’ for reading research articles, underlining and extracting text for summary and study until they crippled this in the free version and increased price for the paid. This app is far beyond that with a superb design for reading, study, organizing spaces, excellent pdf to text extraction and linear or mind mapping ways to relate to the text extractions and your notes both within and between documents. There is a learning curve for use but much is accessible playing around as well. I will be watching videos to learn better use. I have a lot of PDFs stored in Evernote and this app can access and load from within the app. I have used on my my iPhone when my iPad was not available and it’s workable but it is much more useful on a bigger screen. I like it so much that purchased the paid version and might even cough up the larger additional fee for the MacBook version. One of the few apps that is worth the purchase price and more. Excellent!
  • Excellent concept, but it has some deficiencies

    By JuanCandelario (Pcmac user)

    Excellent concept If the app were to work a little more, the tool would be perfect. Unfortunately, it has some deficiencies that, although they could be corrected, can easily cloud the performance of the app and cause a lot of inconvenience to the user. For example, synchronization between devices, iPhone and iPad, is quite problematic. Most of the time it does not synchronize properly, but days after use, and even weeks. Sometimes synchronization never occurs. There are other important faults. TAGS There is no way to create new Tags for the documents (not the notes) in MarginNote 3. ORDER OF THE NOTES. This feature sometimes works, sometimes not, especially, sorting by page order. MOVE. Something as basic as moving a file from one folder to another is torture. Most of the time it is not possible. IMPORT A WEB PAGE This is another torture. Sometimes you can, sometimes not. In short, the developer should work harder.
  • Absolute great tool! Newly refined and even better...

    By Mpoweru (Pcmac user)

    Not often I take time to write a review, but often times dev’s get hit with issues that are minor (meaning they do not take into account ones full scope of the product). One issue affects a person, and therefore the whole product is junk - No. This product is refined and beautifully thought out. It absolutely helps me to absorb all the reading that must be done. It does this in a VERY enjoyable way. The overall beauty of this software is around ingesting large amounts of reading and pulling out the viable information in order to move on to the next reading. Top notch, worth the cost! NOW, let it be known that manuals and help is far from available. You have to do a lot of experiential experimentation to get to know this software. I have day by day been finding new features that are exciting, because days prior I would be thinking to myself I need this or that feature... then it appeared. Hahaha, an experience indeed.
  • Incredible for medical students, grad students and anyone who needs serious horsepower for learning

    By NeedChase (Pcmac user)

    As a medical student, I wish I had found this sooner. It is transformative for anyone consulting multiple documents and easily allows you to build a mind map to make the connections between sources that are vital for serious learning. Then export everything to Anki to build permanent recall. There are so many functions that it is a bit unwieldy and difficult to use as some have noted. So start with a test that isn't tomorrow and give yourself some time to learn the best way to use it. Also, if you are building massive mind maps you’ll need a computer with some power. What works for me are taking excerpts from lectures and books and then building each card as a question around that (question in the title), then exporting to anki. I think this would also be incredible for writing research papers and especially review articles.
