Customer Reviews

from a long way through computing

I have been "computing" since quite a while (hint: >= paper tapes). Now I am sitting here looking at my compiled pfd of a 44 page Latex opus with lots of references and graphics - and I just did it by touching an icon in this little application Tex Writer running on my iPhone. It is not so that I did not keep up-to-date on all the computing changes and technologies. Quite the opposite. Still, I wonder and feel happy, when I see the clean - so rapidly produced - documents from Tex Writer - my macro customizations not with-standing. The developer has done a superb job of letting me work whenever and wherever I feel the lights blinking. BTW: This app integrates well with results out of Wolfram Alpha. Thank you.

One of the best apps

This is the last missing piece I needed to use my iPad Pro as my daily driver to replace my laptop. Now I can pretty much do everything I need to do on my iPad Pro. This app is very well designed and functioning rather smoothly. I haven't had any issues with it.

One great feature that could be added is iCloud syncing, or at least file sharing between iCloud Drive. Hope to see that in later updates.

Very nice interface, might improve Cloud usage

This is a very well-thought program. The one issue I 'm facing is that it doesn't sync well with Dropbox except one way (if I modify files in TexWriter all is well, but if I modify files in my Dropbox folder on my desktop then TexWriter doesn't see the changes). Also, integration with other cloud services like OneDrive,iCloud, Google Drive etc. would be nice.
