Mendeley has two platforms. Some tasks you can do in both, but each has a particular focus.
Mendeley Desktop is where you can organize your references in more detail and annotate the PDFs you collect.
Mendeley Web is your sharing portal. It enables you to easily access references and share your research with others.
Mendeley for iOS allows you to read and annotate PDFs and sync those annotations with your Mendeley Desktop.
To take full advantage of Mendeley features you will be using both.
A Sync button in the tool bar of Mendeley Desktop allows you to update your work to Mendeley Web.
On the web interface, citations offer a link to the desktop interface.
Mendeley Desktop is where you can not only organize your references, but also easily manage, view, highlight and annotate your PDF documents.
Mendeley Web allows easy access and sharing.
Mendeley now offers an iOS app for iPhone and iPad available on the App Store. Sync your entire Mendeley library to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and access your papers from anywhere. Click here to download!
