    "Evernote is a good complementary solution for research papers, as it allows some robust notetaking capabilities, but it is not very useful for research or word processing."

    "Instapaper is the perfect solution for when I'm on the train, during my commute. I simply save the news articles I want to read and don't have to worry about using the unsafe wifi. Instapaper let's me organize my articles and even provides a dictionary. The latest version is a little buggy, but I have no doubt they will fix that and get it working as well as ever."

    "Coming up with topics for research papers can be tough. There's a lot of information out there, but sorting through it is a chore. Ted Talks are very interesting and engaging, and while they don't always provide a lot of facts to back up arguments, they can at least help you start your brainstorming session while giving you a positive frame of mind."

I used this free site to get recommendations and feedback while working on a research paper that I only had a short time to complete. There are many different available views on each subject which allows for better critiquing of your own work."
