Automatically find DOI-links in scientific articles and download the correct metadata.
Markup a citation and tap the link icon to look it up. If you have already read the citation Highlights will link it to the PDF on your device.

Highlights supports dark mode and custom accent colors on all your devices.
Browse your files using the iOS document browser or the Finder on your Mac. Store your files on device, in iCloud Drive, Dropbox or other sync service.
