Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I have neither Papers, Zotero, Mendeley nor Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive, can I still use Aziz, Lite! ?
A: Yes. You can skip the initial syncing step. In this case, Aziz, Lite! will be preloaded with a free selection of articles so that you can evaluate the full potential of the application.

Q: What is Aziz, Lite! useful for ?
A: For students and other academics, Aziz, Lite! lets you:

  • read your favorite articles wherever you are,
  • access your articles and protocols quickly during your experiments, on a tactile device that would be more compliant to the strict sterile and dustproof rules of clean rooms,
  • save trees by going paperless.

  • In addition, Aziz, Lite! can also be used by musicians, in order to:
  • have all your sheet music always with you,
  • read and rehearse your sheet music even in public transportation,
  • have your sheet music side by side with your computer when writing musicology essays,
  • save trees by going paperless.

  • Q: How much is Aziz, Lite! ?
    A: Aziz, Lite! is FREE. You can synchronize, list, download and search for your articles completely for free.
    Advanced sorting and searching options can be purchased on a per-unit basis, or at a discounted price all-at-once.

    Q: Does that mean that there are in-app ads ?
    A: Aziz, Lite! is completely ad-free.

    Q: Will Aziz, Lite! interfere with my desktop reference managemer (like Papers, Zotero or Mendeley) ?
    A: No. To date, Aziz, Lite! is a download only application. You can only access the information you created or modified using your desktop software.

    Q: Will Aziz, Lite! collect personal information ?
    A: Aziz, Lite! is not collecting/storing/sharing any personal information of any kind.
    However, we do collect anonymous statistics, like the number of papers you have in your library, to make sure the app can keep up with the amount of data it needs to manage.

    Q: Is Aziz, Lite! compatible with Papers 2?
    A: Yes.

    Q: What makes Aziz, Lite! so different from other Mendeley clients for Android?
    A: We wanted to provide academics with a wider experience than the already existing Mendeley clients.
    While the Mendeley Personnal Space can go up to 2GB for free, it can become very limiting (or expensive) once your library gets bigger.
    Therefore, storing your files on your own personal Cloud (Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive) may be the best option.
    Thus, Aziz, Lite! is here to facilitate the synchronization from these other Clouds to your Android device.
    For more information on how to configure Mendeley for third-part Cloud synchronization, watch our tutorials:
  • For Mac
  • For Windows

  • Q: What makes Aziz, Lite! so different from other Zotero clients for Android?
    A: We wanted to provide academics with a wider experience than the already existing Zotero clients.
    While the Zotero Storage can go up to 300MB for free, it can become very limiting (or expensive) once your library gets bigger.
    Therefore, storing your files on your own personal Cloud (Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive) may be the best option.
    Thus, Aziz, Lite! is here to facilitate the synchronization from these other Clouds to your Android device.
    For more information on how to configure Zotero for third-part Cloud synchronization, watch our tutorial:
  • For Mac (and Windows)

  • Q: Is Aziz, Lite! going to be available on iOS?
    A: It depends. We are not considering it at the moment, but if there is demand (and time and funding), we may think about it.
