Fix Dropbox!
Typing and compiling work well. The problem is Dropbox sync. It's very buggy. At the moment I'm trying to download an updated tex file from y Dropbox and it just won't update. I turned on autosync for that file and everything but it keeps loading an old version, while the Dropbox app shows a newer version. I also almost alway get errors about Dropbox whenever I open texpad. Fix Dropbox sync! If I could actually rely on this app to save my files and keep track of them, it would be perfect. Also, I'm using a bluetooth keyboard and it works fine in all other apps - I'm typing on it now for this review - but it is frustratingly slow and unreliable in TexPad. Why is that? Please fix.

Great so far
The app has been great so far. It lives up to expectations: excellent dropbox support, remote and local compiler, autocomplete, etc. Minor complaints: I can't figure out how to spell check but I haven't really tried that hard. Sometimes when I'm using a bluetooth keyboard and after I've been working on something for 30minutes or more I will type for 5 seconds and everything will come up in a quick spurt 10 or 20 seconds later. It only happens with this app... not in pages... or just randomly typing into chrome...

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!
