TeX Writer

2014-11-01 10.44.27I like to use my iPad for a lot of tasks. I’ve written about taking notes on the iPad using Penultimate and the Jot Script. I found an app called TeX Writer. It is an app available for iOS, Android, and there is a new web version.

I really like that it allows me to compile documents on the go whether I am connected to the internet or not. It also connects with Dropbox, so I can include all of my packages in a Dropbox folder and it will allow me to edit TeX documents I have saved in Dropbox. One issue I am having is I have not figure out how to select text in it yet (I think this might just be a glitch with iOS 8, though).

What TeX editors do you use on your iPad or other tablet? What do you like about them? What do you dislike about them?

    There are three editors available in the App Store.

    I like texpad, but I’d love to know what you think.

    The distinguishing features are (IMHO):

    1. [TexPad](https://www.texpadapp.com/) has excellent edit/keyboard features AND cloud and device compilation
    1. [TeX Writer](http://www.texwriterapp.com/) excellent, but different, edit/keyboard features 🙂
    1. [VerbTeX](https://www.verbosus.com/ios-latex-editor-for-ipad-and-iphone.html) has and an extended keyboard AND cloud and device compilation

    **Web applications which supports the iPad**

    – [Overleaf][1]
    – [ShareLaTeX](https://www.sharelatex.com/)

    _equation editors that use TeX_

    – [MathPad][2], which provides *mathematics* handwriting recognition and LaTeX export.
    – [MathBot](http://www.wiapps.de/MathBot/index.html) TeX equation editor (TeX in, Image out)
