Connect to MATLAB® from your iPhone or iPad.

Evaluate MATLAB commands, create and edit files, view results, acquire data from sensors, and visualize data – from the convenience of your mobile device.

Use your MathWorks Account to connect to MathWorks Cloud from MATLAB Mobile™. Associating your MathWorks Account to a license that is current on MathWorks Software Maintenance Service increases your storage quota and unlocks the ability to acquire data from device sensors.

With your MathWorks Account, you receive:
• Access to MATLAB from the command-line
• The ability to view, run, edit and create files from the Editor
• 250 MB of cloud storage on MATLAB Drive

Associate your MathWorks Account to a valid license current on MathWorks Software Maintenance Service to unlock the following features:
• Access to other add-on products on your license
• The ability to acquire data from device sensors
• 5 GB of cloud storage on MATLAB Drive

Connect to a MATLAB session on your work or home computer, and access your scripts, files, data, and add-on products on that computer. When connecting to your computer, MATLAB Mobile is intended for use behind a firewall on a private network. Virtual private network (VPN) use is recommended when used over the public Internet or via 3G/4G.

• Command-line access to MATLAB and add-on products
• 2D and 3D plots to visualize data
• Editor to view, run, edit and create MATLAB files
• Data acquisition from device sensors
• Cloud storage and synchronization with MATLAB Drive
• Custom keyboards to enter typical MATLAB syntax

The following features are not supported:
• Viewing, editing or evaluating live scripts with the Live Editor
• Using MATLAB Apps, such as Curve Fitting
• Creating apps with App Designer
• Interacting with 3D figures
• Opening or creating models using the Simulink graphical environment

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

MATLAB is the leading technical computing software for algorithm development, data visualization, data analysis, and numeric computation.

Missing so many features

The iPads hardware continues to match forward and Mathworks isn’t taking advantage of that. An app such as Pythonista gives a first class Python IDE taking advantage of local file providers (to use working copy for git). And it’s completely developed by one person. Super disappointing considering it basically hasn’t improved to even do basic file operations (import from other apps, let alone external file provider support). Given all of the made per matlab license I would think even a simplified version of full matlab would be possible.

If you’re looking for a viewer for your files already in the mathworks cloud this is fine. For real development work especially using git version control, this is a joke. If you have a choice in the matter learn Python get Pythonista and leave mathworks proprietary stuff behind.

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you for the feedback and the vote for more advanced file options (like import, version control etc.). We're in the process of enhancing our capabilities when working with files and will take your comments into consideration for future releases.

Sensors’ data acquisition used to be free

When I first installed the app, acquiring data from the sensors used to be free... Now it requires an upgrade.
No body would build a system that contains an IOS device in it for movement feedback; no body would use the feature commercially. The only use is for small debugs and educational purposes
Such a greedy move and a disappointment....

Needs iPad Pro support

I am currently using Matlab Mobile, but it is not optimized for the new iPad Pro (2018) and there is substantial space loss around the edges because of this. I would like to kindly request MathWorks to optimize this for use with the new iPad Pros. Thanks much.
