Customer Reviews

Mostly excellent!

Does what it's supposed to!

Only small gripe: I've had compatibility issues with .tex files that I created using the app, modified using another editor on my laptop, and imported back into this app. For some reason the entire body of my text started showing up as a single line of tex writing within the app, which causes many problems. (The body of text showed up as a single latex line (line number 84) even though the app clearly registered the fact that what it counted as a single tex line in fact contained very many lines of writing - showing up as over 300 latex lines on other editors.))


Several years ago I got Tex Touch for my iPad. I was happy with it, but then a while ago it just quit working. (I guess it was never updated to more recent IOS updates?) Anyway, I finally got around to getting a new latex compiler for my iPad. I cannot believe how smoothly and intuitively Tex Write works. It compiles smoothly. It works well with drop box. It even allows me to make folders to organize my documents and it was all easy to figure out. I haven't been happier with an app yet. Great product!

I'm in Love with this App!

I really love TexWriter on the iPad, especially with my LogiTech Bluetooth keyboard. My book has 21 files (chapters), over 125 pages, and a bunch of .png images, stored in a separate folder from the .tex files. I'm also using a bunch of style files and am blown away by how easily TexWriter just gobbles them all up and produces the beautiful text that I've grown to love with LaTeX. And, btw, TexWriter typesets my book very fast on my iPhone Plus! I love the app.
