Customer Reviews


The best thing you can say about this app is the most important thing... it just works. It takes all the complexity of a tex distribution and handles it without missing a beat. The automatic downloading of packages is so slick I add unneeded packages in my preamble just to see if it can find it... It does. Dropbox integration means you can seamlessly switch between your laptop and your phone/tablet.

I would say the biggest thing missing is a pattern-based search and replace (maybe it's possible using the scripting interface but it would be good to have it as a basic feature).

Pretty good overall

On the whole, very good. There may be some room for improvement. Such as a better library of recognised functions and maybe the ability to tab complete on them? It would also be nice to be able to edit the shortcut keys to use different functions, I don't particularly need quick access to a delete-all button...

Best Latex Editor/Compiler Ever

And I don't just mean for iOS. This is so easy to install and use it makes what we had to go through 20 years ago simply laughable. Simple Dropbox integration and syncing across devices and the web app mean you can work on your documents wherever you are whenever you want with ease.

Everyone who writes mathematics should own this app. Simple as that.
