Aziz, Lite! has grown a lot since its first steps in early 2016. Yet, our ambition is much bigger. In addition to the multi-cloud multi-reference-manager capabilities already present, we really want to integrate the possibility to access those multiple accounts at once. People can have multiple libraries, and sometimes they have to use different reference management software. If you're changing job or if you're joining a new team, you can have to adapt to whatever system is already in place. That does not mean you want to compromise and give up on your old library. For this very reason, we think it is important to provide people with the option to set up multiple accounts on the same device. It could be the same reference management software on different cloud systems, or different softwares on the same cloud, or even different libraries/accounts, or of course any combination of these.
Yet, Aziz, Lite! allows only one account to be set up at once. Since the app is curated by only one person (me, Yohan Farouz), it could take a long time before Aziz is released. In addition to the multi-account features, I really want to add editing options as well... So in the meantime, I am happy to announce the release of 3 separate apps, namely EZPaperz for Papers, MendEZ for Mendeley, and ZotEZ for Zotero.
Even though we're still far away from true multi-account apps, having them separate offers the opportunity to:
And of course, our big 50% Christmas discount on all in-app purchases applies to all these new apps
So let's go one more time over all the cool features available in this new Aziz Suite:
Free features :
- resetting library data and reference manager type
- deleting local files
- hiding advanced metadata (labels, flags, etc.)
Important Note: all the extra features are available for evaluation (for FREE) when selecting the option "Skip this step". You will be presented with a curated set of papers in order to get a glimpse at our cool features.
