I just saw your apologetic note about annotations on the front page of the web browser, and it occurred to me that an easy work around might be for you folk to license/buy the annotation features of the 'Goodreader' iPAD app. It does everything you need, and there's lots of code you won't have to write.

Just wondering if we can get an update on the timing of the 1.1 release -- looking forward to moving my annotations to Endnote for iPad and having them sync back. Any timing updates would be appreciated!

We are currently finishing up the beta testing for the EndNote for iPad app 1.1 release. As we have mentioned, the 1.1 update will add substantial improvements to the PDF annotations and will be free to anyone who has purchased the EndNote app.
We hope to submit this to Apple in the next week or so. Presuming Apple gives us a swift approval, the app update should be ready soon after that.

I am very eager to see the developments on the pdf annotation and - syncing. Thanks for all your hard work! Any news?
A third party app would be just as welcome as an internal development, although I guess som people will complain about having to buy Goodreader f.ex. (worth every penny though).

I have to assume you are aware of reports that the latest update leaves the app frozen while it begins to index the library (stuck at 0%)- there are reviews stating this at the app store, and it is my experience, too. I have found this app extremely frustrating to use (I don't care at all about pdf annotations, I just want the pdfs I sync to stay put once I go through the trouble of downloading them, instead of disappearing), and now after this update it is completely useless!
I probably speak for many that are also committed to Endnote from our desktop/laptop experience and time investment, but now we are stuck with a very buggy app. Please help!
UPDATE: after ten minutes or so, the indexing apparently finished (though I don't think the status bar actually ever moved). Things seem to be working, though I still have pdf attachments which inexplicably have vanished. This is a MAJOR problem.

We think we have a fix for the PDF indexing issue and are beta testing it now. We plan to include this fix in the upcoming 1.2 version of EndNote for iPad. We will get this submitted to Apple as quickly as we can but realistically this will take a couple of weeks.
Thanks for the input.

The paragraph quoted below was taken from a previous post referring to the ipad version only displaying "subgroups" on the left of the screen under the "my groups" title while the desktop version has major group headings with "subgroups" organized within these major groups (much better for organization). Any chance, as the statement below mentions, that matching the organizational heirarchical model on the ipad with that on the desktop is something currently being worked on? I think this would help the app dramatically.
"-- I noticed a problem difference between how the paper groupings are stored between the desktop and the ipad versions. On the desktop, I arranged my papers into major "groups" and then subordinate "subgroups" within those major groups. When I ported this all over to the ipad, only the "subgroups" are used - this means all the subgroups within my major groupings are shuffled. It would be better to just have the same grouping structure between the ipad and the desktop versions."
