Aziz, Lite! is the first third-part client on Android for synchronizing, sorting and downloading articles that are managed with either Papers (both 2 and 3), Mendeley or Zotero, and stored on either Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive.

Based on our big sister app EZPaperz (available on https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.ezbio.ezpaperz), Aziz, Lite! aims at facilitating file management for users of Mendeley and Zotero that chose to store their library database on another Cloud than the default ones.

Aziz, Lite! is the "read-only" version of a bigger project (Aziz) intended to provide editing options as well as full side note management.
