I'm working in computer science and found that ReadCube fails to recognise around half of all documents, even when supporting the search by manually entering titles, authors, or even DOIs. These papers that it fails to identify are perfectly visible on Google Scholar that the software uses as a source.

The software could have still had its use as a tool for bringing some order into a collection of papers (in most cases, a ramshackle folder overflowing with PDFs) and managing citations. Unfortunately, the fact that it's not possible to tag unidentified papers yourself, severely limits its usefulness.
