This is my favorite research tool right now. I love how you can type in a search term and it will find papers, then you can click 'download' and it will use your university library to pull the paper down to your computer. It makes research so neat and easy. You can highlight in the cube, and find and automatically download the papers that are referenced there.
The pro features cost money, but they are worth it. Unlimited cloud storage, the ability to use hashtags, and the ability to download articles that reference an article are very cool features when doing a literature review or other research. You get 30 days of the pro features as a trial. I recommend that you don't request the pro features until you have got used to using the other features, that way you can get the most value for (no) money.
