Works Pretty Well
It was easy to enter a test equation (quadratic formula) copy the image of the equation using the “copy image” button, and paste it into a pages document. (I don’t have word, so I can’t test that.) The image was rather low resolution, and looked fuzzy the first time I tried this. I increased the font size to 48 pts, copied/pasted the image again, and then proportionally resized it to the match the size of the first try. The quality was quite a bit better.
I really like the combined graphical and TeX input for this app. I can use TeX text-mode for simple equations where I can type faster than I can mouse. On the other hand, if I don’t remembe the TeX colloquialisms, I can use the graphical construction tools, which are well engineered.
I would rate this app higher if the pasted image looked sharp at the original size when pasting. Perhaps the developers could include a setting for the default resolution, in pixels per inch (or cm), of the image when copied to the clipboard.
Really Great Application!
This equation editor is great! The first reason, of course, is that it’s free! Other than that though, the user interface is visually appealing and is easy to use. This application has contributed signifigantely to my studies in college for classes like calculus and chemistry, which often require me to memorize a whole bunch of equations. I can make awesome looking note cards and study sheets with the help of this program. The only thing I would suggest to improve this program would be to allow options for larger and higher-quality images when exporting equations. And maybe even the ability for the user to assign keyboard shortcuts to certain mathmatical symbols/operators (i.e. Option+E for an exponent or Option+F for a fraction).
Exactly what I needed
I’m making flash cards for the MCAT and memorizing a lot of equations I haven’t used in 12 years. This app is perfect for writing up the equation (very intuitive if you’ve worked with anything similar in the past, e.g. Mathmatica). The built in export could be better as others have mentioned, but a simple CMD-SHIFT-4 gets you a selectable screen shot that exports to your desktop. You can drag that small photo into probably most all other programs. For me I’m using iFlash. Make the formula, selectable screen shot, drag it into iFlash, done.
Simple - Functional - Free - Thanks!
