    Basically I have many many PDF's I use for work. I would like to have them archived inside a windows application where I can view and search through them. I would also like to be able to attach various tags to these PDF's so I can search for specific things.

    Cross platform is a bonus, although it's not the end of the world if it's not compatible with OSX.

    Any ideas?

    On a Mac my mind was immediately bought to Yep/Papers and after a little bit of digging I found Mendeley for Windows. It looks like it might be up to the job and there is a Mac and iPhone version. As it is free there is no harm in trying it out.

    I love Papers on the Mac/iOS, but Mendeley sounds neat. Will have to check it out.

    I think there's a similar program to EndNote. Is it called Revtex or ref works or something similar?

    Evernote would probably fit the bill too, and it's cross platform and free(ish). Tagging is quite good and it will sync between the two machines via the cloud.

    RevTeX is the LaTeX package used by the APS/AIP Physics journals so it isn't that. ;)
