PC Magazine review "EndNote X6 (for Mac)"
There is now an EndNote app for the iPad. It is not included in the site license and costs $9.99 (special price of .99 until 7/31) on iTunes. EndNote video | purchase at iTunes. My brief view of the app showed references in the "edit" view, not preview; could view pdf's, could not cite from the iPad; was told that you can copy a reference in one general citation style; will sync references between EndNote Web and the iPad.
For the most recent version of EndNote for the Mac EndNote says, "EndNote X6 is compatible with Mountain Lion. However, please note a known bug in the OS X 10.8.2 update to Mountain Lion which may cause issues with EndNote Cite While You Write as well as other software applications" (more info). The knowledge base article says that there are two updates for X6 for the Mac. (These updates require having EndNote X6 already installed.) X6.0.1 is for synchronizing with EndNote Web and X6.0.2 is an update for working with Mac OS X 10.8.2 and they have to be installed in order.
There is also an update for the Windows version of EndNote (X6.0.1) so that it will work with synchronizing with EndNote Web.

What EndNote Does

The majority of library databases allow you to export references to your EndNote library. You can also type references directly into your EndNote library. Then you can automatically add those citations in Microsoft Word, Apple Pages '09, or OpenOffice.org Writer 3. Intermediate. You can also link pdf's or Word documents to the references, configure EndNote to search the A&M library's subscriptions for full text of journal articles, create groups of references, and do some other customizations. Advanced. You can edit or create new output styles, add custom data fields to references (such as population of a study), and change what fields display in the main library window.
