Today is my one year anniversary as a @paperpile user. Words cannot express how much you've meant to me. Here's to many more years together.

After EndNote lost hours of my work @paperpile saved my PhD.

In one afternoon I changed my entire academic writing process. [...] I cannot say enough about how easy and fantastic this citation manager is!

Raul Ramos

@RamosNeuro

I never used a citation manager before, but @paperpile has won me over. Why? Because I actually keep coming back to it and curating my collection of literature.

@hcmacomber

@paperpile is superior in basically every respect, especially if Google-made stuff is how you organize your life (Chrome, Google Docs/Sheets, etc.)

@kidney_boy

I've been using @paperpile for 10 minutes and I'm in love. Where have you been all my life!

How come I didn't find @paperpile earlier? This is the first citation manager really doing what it should and hassle free.

@paperpile = now making references the easiest part of a PhD, not the hardest #truelove

Austin Johnson

@johnsonaustinh

I have seen the future of managing the eight million PDFs buried in my hard drive, and it is @paperpile. So so good.

Paperpile, Paperpile, Paperpile. So hooked.

Alex Holehouse

@alexholehouse

Sometimes I remember there are people who don't use @paperpile for all things paper-related and I wonder how they get things done.

Patrick Mineault

@patrickmineault

Really impressed with Paperpile - citation manager with Docs, Scholar integration. PDF scraping is second to none.

Matt Lee

@paperpile with Google Docs. Magic.

@dsky

I'm pretty sure I've reached the point where @paperpile is basically my functional memory and it just has to be open at all times for me to know what I'm doing.

@lorenzoF92SM

First few minutes with iOS beta of @paperpile I already know I'm gonna love it. Clean interface, FULL goddamn sync, no non-sense functionalities.

All your papers in one place. Nice and tidy.
