  1. Adapt to changes in Dropbox expected September 28, 2017

    On September 28, 2017, changes to Dropbox will likely affect PocketBib links to Dropbox accounts. At the moment it seems PocketBib will no longer connect to Dropbox after that date unless it is updated to adapt to those changes.

      • Allow opening of any URL

        So many apps now have URL schemes that work on both the Mac and iOS (e.g. Ulysses). Pocketbib seems to only open http and https URLs, though. Please allow us to open any URL for which a handler exists. I have lots of Ulysses:// URLs that work great in bibdesk....I can see them in pocketbib but I can't open them

              • Improve sharing options and UI

                Right now sharing from PocketBib requires either 1) clicking on a publication and using the share sheet to share either the BibTeX key or the item URL, or 2) viewing the full BibTeX record then copying and pasting. In each case, the actions are per publication.

                Please consider adding any or all of the following:

                1) add Copy Raw BibTeX to the share sheet
                2) allow for export of formatted citations
                3) allow the user to swipe left on a publication in the Master table and act on it directly without going into its Detail view
                4) allow the user…

                • Support of iCloud Drive

                  I'd prefer to use iCloud Drive instead of dropbox to store the papers. Would be nice to have this option in the near future.

                      Dropbox, Google Drive and SugarSync are blocked in China. WebDAV works not well in my macbook. Pocketbib can hardly setup connect to my sharing folder. Could you please add some other protocols, such as smb or afp?

                      • Support spaces within keywords

                        BibTex and BibDesk allow multi-word keywords, that is: a keyword string with embedded spaces. For example "language design" or "operating systems". Lots of bibtex citations produced by the ACM (acm.org), for example, will have multi-word keyword strings.

                          Hello, I would like to suggest du provide PocketBib support for BibLaTeX, the modern advancement of BibTeX with advanced and new fields. Perhaps users of PocketBib could defined their own set of fields to be displayed by PocketBib. Thanks, best regards, Sören

                                Not possible to find the version number of PocketBib. How about showing that in the same place you put the copyright notice -- in the main 'settings' popup?

                                    • Create and Edit static groups and their entries.

                                      It would be useful to be able to work with groups like in jabref:
                                      Making new groups and subgroups.
                                      Assigning articles and editing group afterwards as well
                                      For me the grouping is a process when I work with the references because many articles can be assigned to many groups

                                      • See and sort by Rating

                                        I use the rating field prominently in my navigation and organization of my references. For pocketbib to work for me, I would need to be able to see this field she looking at a list of references, and to sort by it. Until then I guess I will stick with Papers. Thank you.

                                        • Share macros from multiple files

                                          Currently only macros from one file can be shared at a time. It would be convenient if this could be generalized to multiple libraries that export their definitions.

                                          I have macros stored in several files (full and abbreviated journal names but also German and English string definitions) and I do not like to merge them manually.
