  1. Add punctuation to the Subject line when sharing articles via email

    To separate "Sharing" from the article title, to have some of the words stand out a bit more, and to have it look less like spam, add a colon (:) after Sharing, and enclose via BrowZine in brackets,
    eg from this: Sharing A RDF-based approach to metadata crosswalk for semantic interoperability at the data element level via BrowZine
    to this: Sharing: A RDF-based approach to metadata crosswalk for semantic interoperability at the data element level (via BrowZine)

            • Add the option to display one, two, three or four shelves in the My Bookshelf bookcases

              For example, if only two shelves were displayed, then the journal cover images could be enlarged to fill the space.

              • Automatically launch VPN App if needed by BrowZine

                Some institutions require VPN apps to use BrowZine such as Cisco's AnyConnect or Junos Pulse. Automatically launching these services when required would streamline BrowZine use while off-site for these institutions.

                • Include dates of coverage for publications

                  On the list of covered publications at http://support.thirdiron.com/knowledgebase/articles/132654-what-publishers-do-you-support would you include dates of coverage? If this requires a more comprehensive list of specific titles for each publisher so much the better (but sorry for the extra work :-) )

                  • WebDAV support for Zotero

                    Currently BrowZine only supports saving PDFs directly to Zotero's servers. Zotero features a capability to save to WebDAV services instead, but this is not currently supported in BrowZine. Add support so that a user could put in their personal WebDAV credentials and save PDFs there instead of at Zotero's servers.

                    • Enable better control of unread counts in and out of BrowZine

                      Allow control of whether or not the app displays unread counts both in and outside of BrowZine according to user preference.

                        In addition to the contact support feature under the settings tab, it would be useful for the ability to send an email straight our to the library.

                        • Make it possible to mark an article as "unread" again

                          It's not frequent, but sometimes I'll see an article I really like, click it and get the "Not available yet, try later" error. I'd like to keep it unread so I remember to go back it later, but apparently "once clicked, always read."

                          Not a big deal, just for your consideration. Thanks!

                              This is a fairly common scenario for faculty and students who are in Medicine, for example, and who may have access to both resources available at a hospital library as well as a university.
