Description

With TeX Anywhere you can quickly create and share beautifully formatted mathematical equations on your iPhone or iPad. Equations are input using standard LaTeX syntax and rendered in real time. Once complete, an equation can be exported to other apps such as e-mail clients, word processors, or social media apps as images or PDF files. You can also send equations to your friends and colleagues from within Messages. If the receiver of your message also has TeX Anywhere installed they can edit your equation, making TeX Anywhere a valuable collaboration tool. TeX anywhere includes a number of advanced features designed to make creating and sharing LaTeX-formatted equations quick and easy. These include: - a keyboard toolbar providing quick access to commonly used LaTeX syntax characters, - dozens of pre-defined macros covering mathematical operators, Greek letters, and symbols, - options to adjust an equation's font size, text color, and background (including transparency) allowing seamless integration of TeX Anywhere equations into existing documents, and - options to export equations as images, PDF files or LaTeX code. If you commonly use math to communicate, we're confident that TeX Anywhere can make your life better.

  • Great app.

    This app is better than Vulcanize. It would be nice if there was the \cancel function for showing canceled units/terms.
  • Easy to use!

    Very powerful yet simple. I use it all the time when writing lab reports, papers, and presentations. It’s very easy to write an equation and export it to use elsewhere.
  • Nice Interface, but Hard to Use

    I'd like to rate this app higher, but it needs to have the special LaTeX symbols more accessible. It does have a few shortcuts, but not nearly enough. You have to use shift keys to even make the common \ control symbol visible. After seeing the developer's response, I did some more experimentation and found that the small menus above the on-screen keyboard scroll, so he is quite right: there are many more symbols available than I thought. A small, but all too common oversight, is the failure to provide good instructions for using the app. I have changed my rating from two stars to four and am looking forward to using this app much more often.
  • No option to delete files

    Edit: I did find how to delete files just recently (thanks for the suggestion). Just downloaded the app, and have created files/generated PDFs with no issue. However, I think there should be an option to delete a file once it has been created: I have only seen Share options for any select file while editing, no delete option; the Settings menu does not hold the ability to delete files; and I cannot press and hold a file then release to delete. This addition would help everyone who uses this app. Thanks! P.S. The Wikibooks link is super awesome!

    -Normally I have to hand write equations and take a photo to help communicate with my peers and now I can send them clean equations. -I could see also using this to help with sending hints for my students too! Great, clean, simple, and well executed application thanks so much for making it!
