App to help with research and citations?

It's been 10+ years since I did any proper research, but now I have an idea for a (nonfiction) book or series of articles. Will require a lot of research.

I anticipate doing a lot of this on my phone as I'm on mat leave with a small baby.

Is there an (android) app which can help me save text I write of have copied from an online source or kindle book, and which will automatically save the citation?

Ideally I can then export to Word, search through it etc - and eventually find some proper time to write things up!

Thanks!

Mendeley, Endnote.

I don't know if Mendeley has an Android app, but you can download whole papers using it's little internet button thingy (ok, not the technical term). I like Mendeley as it has an internet version and a desktop version that sync so wherever you are, you can access one of them, it also has search like Google once you have downloaded material. One caution, it is set up to store academic journals, not newspaper articles or things like that, and it struggles more with formatting of non-academic articles and you often have to input the material manually.
