Recently I’ve been tidying up my references and reading habits. After playing with a number of paid-for applications, like Papers I’ve decided to stick with Bibdesk on the mac and PocketBib on iOS. Personally I find myself using CiteULike a lot more to keep the data up-to-date than any desktop apps so Bibdesk/PocketBib is really for my reference and offline reading habits rather than editing needs.
This is achieved by one-way syncing all the CiteULike data to a folder on dropbox running a small script that is here. Download and run at your cron-pleasure but please change the API line on 53 so I don’t look like a bad-guy to the CiteULike gang who are lovely!
