Mostly functional


Great for simple Tex formatting, and the autocomplete feature is nice, but I cannot get \usepackage to work. The instructions on their website and in the app don’t seem to match their current UI and the current iOS UI for sharing files.

Developer Response

Thank you for your report. Could you send us a sample document or tell us which package specifically doesn't work? The \usepackage command is a LaTeX command and since we're using a full LaTeX installation, everything should work as expected. Please contact us directly so we can solve this issue.

Does everything you want a LaTeX editor to do. Works smoothly and is half the cost of all the other LaTeX editors



One bug: can NOT delete nor rename an existed local project, pls fix it ASPS.

Some improving suggestions:
1. Show commands via different colors, which would help users to read/revise the code (you could refer to "winedit")
2. After compiling, if the user find any place that needs to be revised, then he/she has to find the place from the code. Pls add a function by which the user could reach the place directly from the compiled tex. You may first compile the code as another format, which allows the user to revise, then if everything is ok, let the user to decide whether to compile it as a PDF. Thanks.
