Close to perfect
Pros: - Dropbox integration - Excellent interface - Efficient, smooth, and not bloated (as a typesetting app should be). Cons: - Local typesetting missed a couple of symbols for me. Not a big deal though. For me, this goes a long way towards making the IPad a productivity device.

Pretty good
Worked well for me, and after playing around with adding a couple packages I managed to get it to compile the tex files I was working with.

Most complete and reliable TeX system.
Put it to the test with AMS documentation files and were typeset perfectly and quickly with the local typesetter. Developers were quick to answer emails and solve issues promptly. DropBox integration is easy and pretty much behind the scenes. You are prompted to use a local or remote overwrite files if the source files were changed outside the app; like if you had used your laptop to finish editing your file and updated the document in DropBox. Two finger cursor movements work like they should in all directions. My only suggestion is to include TextExpander support for macro expansion; then perfection!

New version doesn't work
The previous version was easily 5 out of 5 stars, but, since this last update, the app simply doesn't work. No response whatsoever.

Some good, some bad
Once you are working in the editor, things are pretty nice and stable. I only had few issues: (1) The forward quote ` is missing from the keyboard -- it is essential for typing quotes correctly. (2) The search box only finds complete words, so you can't use it to change all semi-colons to periods, etc. (3) There is no detection of misspelled words. Maybe some other small issues, but overall, pretty impressive and very usable. Now for the bad part. Although I am a savvy user (for example, I have been using Latex for 28 years), I couldn't get the hang of the file manager. There is a Dropbox connection, and it works pretty well (that's how I got some work done), but I couldn't get the local storage to work (when Dropbox is disconnected). I couldn't find how to transfer files from one type of storage to another, I was getting errors that the encoding is wrong when it's obviously OK, etc. etc. It doesn't help that the documentation is minimal, and a message to support went unanswered. So overall it's only 3 stars.
