Needs more symbols
This math symbols keyboard is the best of the various free ones I could find. Still, it's missing a lot of symbols that would be good to have. Most notably an arrow symbol --> for writing limits and functions is missing.
There are also some symbols in here that we DO NOT need. Particularly, much of the keyboard is devoted to Latin and Greek letters. However, not all the letters are included. For letters we can switch to the normal keyboard. And apple already has a Greek keyboard that works fine.
I would rather have one specialized keyboard for ONLY symbols that I could switch back and forth from. This is a clearer goal than trying to make a keyboard that you would never have to leave to type math (which may be overambitious?) By eliminating the letters you make space for more symbols.
That said, this flawed all is still the best free app on the App Store for its purpose. Thank you to the author, and please listen to the feedback!
Lots of options but needs some more
I got this app so I could write out chemical equations and calculus problems to my lab partner, so I wanted an integrated keyboard for texting. The superscript and subscript options are very helpful but I need a superscript plus sign (+) to be able to write the charges on cations, etc. I would also like to be able to turn off the keyboard sounds for the SciKey keyboard because they're very annoying if you're used to keyboard sounds being off.
Dont bother with the free version
Seriously I'm no math wiz, barely a scientist and to write a few simple equations, i cannot do it.
To developers: Just give me some basic symbols to try a 'calc kit' or a 'chem kit' or a 'trig kit' and I would happily buy this whole thing. But to give me just a taste of each is a big waste of time. (Given: I have limited time and poor connection when I try the free version)
If you would waste my time you will not get my money. Irritating the customer into buying is more and more common these days and I would rather put my good (aka $$) where it can do the most.
