Android private beta (old)


Great, hope you can sign me up to the beta as well then. Mobile access is what still keeps me from switching fully to paperpile.


Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since we’ve discussed the state of the mobile app development, but now seems like a good time to do so since we’re close to a new release.

The aim of this new version is to improve upon the older version’s features, add new ones and fix the problems encountered by some of you during the initial tests of the first version.

Our focus was mainly on data sync, this is where most people have experienced problems using the app and we believe this is a key area that needs to work as reliably as possible. We’ve rebuilt the way the sync works from scratch so that most of the problems you’ve experienced are solved by definition. We also understand that the mobile data one has is sometimes limited so when working on a PDF using the mobile app, only the changes one makes are synced instead of the whole PDF like it’s done in the current version. The PDF viewer itself has also got a rework, now having more annotation features available and allowing for realtime sync between the mobile app and the web app.

There’s more to this release in terms of features, we’ll let you know of all of the changes once it’s done. In regards to invitations to participate in the beta, new invites will be sent out once the new version is released.



I am looking forward to being added to the beta.




Please add me to the beta or I’m going to jump ship. Have been waiting so long for this.


One feature that seems very obvious to add is to allow one to add a reference to Paperpile using the ‘Share To’ feature in Android. So when we’re looking at a website, we can use that feature to share a link to Paperpile, which will then add a reference (just like using the Paperpile button in Chrome). Is such a feature planned?


hey, hug101…that’s really funny. We’ve been asking for it since forever on the iOS side. Not sure what is up with paperpile development, but it is starting to be a total joke. I’d be embarrassed.


Please add me to the testers of the Android app for Paperpile!!! Actually, all I really want is to have the option to “share” something I’m reading on my phone directly to Paperpile instead of emailing it to myself. Just add a Paperpile icon in there next to gmail, facebook drive, etc. Thank you!!!


Would it be so difficult to allow for “read-only” website on mobile devices? There are really good PDF readers for both Android and iOS, but accessing my papers via Google Drive is a pain…

Please add me to the private beta.


We have been asking for this for years! No dice.


Hey we appreciate the update but I think it would be nice to get these more frequently. Even if you happen to have a setback in development it would be nice to know what is currently going on on, say, a monthly basis. Thanks!


Hi there. I’d like to try out the private beta on my Onyx Boox Max2, which is an android 6 e-ink based device. I think it would really be nice with paperpile. I filled out the invite form a while back for my ios device (ipad pro), but never received an invite. Can I get an android invite?


Hi! Did you were added to the private testing? I want to be part of the Android Paperpile test too.
I already fill the survey (twice) and didin’t receive any confirmation email or any similar. What are the next steps?



Could you send me an invitation? I already fulfill the requirements (completed the survey, I am a paying user). What should I do to get an invitation?


I would like to be bumped up for the private beta. I’ve asked a couple of times before with no luck. Perhaps the beta is no longer open to new users. But if it is, I would appreciate the opportunity to use it. Thanks.


To everyone asking for an invite. We will open the beta up to more users with the next update. We will invite everyone in this thread. For a quick update please have a look at Carlo’s post in another thread:


I also want to try the android version. Thanks!

Paperpile for iOS and Android (private beta) 📱

I would love to try the android app, too.


I’ve posted an update for the iOS which also applies for the Android app. The existing beta of the Android app stays live but the sync if not broken already will break very soon.

Please read the announcement here:


Hi! I would like to be included in the android private beta too. Thanks.



Can you include me in the next functional beta please? I’m heading to Africa for some field work and really need access to my folders and tags… even though I can access all my papers offline from Gdrive sync, I can’t actually find anything.

Thanks for the hard work!**
