Based on Tom's "Perfect World"... Medeley fulfills a large part of his wish
1. Has iPhone and iPad support. A Desktop version. A Web version.
2. Their Web importer already supports importing citations from just about
EVERYONE already...see here: http://www.mendeley.com/import/ as well as
COinS and metatags.
3. Sharing of annotations.
4. Group collaboration. (the level of collaboration differs between Paid
and Free however, I think.)
5. An Open Web API (just like Zotero has).
6. Soon to have Library Systems support for the major systems used
7. Also soon to have Federated searching across external databases,
including those endorsing universities http://www.mendeley.com/endorsements/
7. It's FREE for up to 1GB for your own papers storage.
