Review of litterature management software for research

There are really two distinct processes

  • highlights=citations, and annotations made on iphone/ipad. Should include tags also. Ultimately it should be possible between reading or listening the pdf, and to writing or saying the annotation (including the ladt sentence as quote, exandable somehow
  • organising the annotations according to tags and moving them around in the emerging structure of the paper/thesis. Combined with an outliner. Should work across pdfs. But making it across pdfs means that the tags added while making the annotations should be global also.
