The initial acceptance terms upon installing this made me uninstall it immediately without bothering to try it. Too much tracking for my liking. Felt like I was able to use a Google app. I don't care how much organisations promise not to use identifiable information etc. They are very open about tracking you, but I don't want any snooping whatsoever. Particularly for a database application in which I'm like to be storing sensitive information. What I do on my computer is private.

Pro:

  • Active Developer
  • Active Development

Con:

  • App responsiveness right now is painful
  • crashes occasionally occur

Polar by far isn't really usable due to bugs and many other inconveniences. However, I personally believe it has potential to become an essential app for productivity. It is similar to Small Memex iconMemex but for pdf

Still many features are missing and it still has some bugs. But good starting point and I hope it will be further developed.

Polar bookshelf adds a dimension to the internet that's been long needed. I can't wait to see the new features from the development timeline over the next year. The dev's are more than capable of accomplishing some really awesome world changing things. The main developer worked on RSS which had a few benefits to the world to say the least.

Polar is great! I used it originally because of it's link to Anki but now it's my default way to read and study pdfs on my computer. Definitely worth using.
