Free but not particularly useful

N76533

Good interface, easy to use and does the job. However, as there is a limit on the number of total files (not just .tex) for the free version, ultimately for my purposes it’s not very useful. On a computer I can edit and compile latex documents for free, I’m looking for the same functionality on my iPad.

Developer Response

Thank you for your report. We provide a pro version of the app that removes these limitations. Please contact us directly if you have any questions.

Not great

myandino

It is easy to use, but unless you have an account with their cloud you cannot use your script to transfer or continue to edit on your computer. The documents do not get save unless you remember to click save, this can be improved. It is nice to create on the go documents and then send the pdf, but that’s about it.

Developer Response

Thank you for your report. Please note that in Local Mode you don't need an account. In Local Mode you can link your projects with Dropbox or Box. You have complete control over the structure of the project and can edit your project directly on your computer. Please also note that the project also gets saved right before generating the PDF (you can disable autosave in Preferences). If you have any questions please contact us directly.

Good editor

I use a Bluetooth keyboard.

Generating PDF needs a bit of work. Also, my folders are on Dropbox and the sync needs a bit of work.
