One of the Two or Three Greatest Apps

I have been using this app since it was first available. I was impressed by it at the beginning and I continue to appreciate its improvements with each update. For a long time I resisted kearning TeX, preferring MS Word or Pages with MathType for the equations. But I have actually learned TeX using this app, and it is one of my top two tools on my iPad.

It has been quite a while since I wrote this review, so I thought I would update it. I use it regularly. It has been an excellent tool with which to learn TeX, and I still consider it to be one of the two top apps that I use on my current iPad pro. Combining this app with my Apple smart keyboard resulted in an excellent technical writing tool.

Added Note: I am surprised that this app gets even one negative comment, let alone two. Also, I am surprised that there are so few ratings. I think if comments from earlier versions were included there would be many more, and the responses would be much more uniformly positive. I do hope the developer will continue to support and update this marvelous (I would say essential!) app.

Fast and complete on iPad

This app processes complex documents quickly on an iPad. It download automatically the packages and fonts it needs. I use it to review and edit documents I typed on my MacBook and to write occasional reports when on the go.

Great App!

Makes my iPad useful. I do all my notes on it. Not p easy to use.p, as you must write in TeX but better than anything else.

No unpleasant surprises. Does what it should. PFD import and export is great. With a drawing you can make a diagram and import it into your document.
