Good start, flaws and bugs
Pro: - local compiling - syntax highlighting - iPhone compatibility - extra gestures very useful Con: - Dropbox sync is very buggy - Errors often unhelpful, link to wrong lines of code. I can't get it to work with my existing projects and can't even figure out what's breaking the compile from the errors. Good app for making a small document from scratch, but not for major projects or editing existing work.

Requires that file names have no spaces—which makes accessing all my imported work a huge pain in the *** and not worth the extra effort (seriously, I have to go in on my iPad and rename every single one??). It also cannot generate all commands in tikZ correctly. So expensive to find out that it isn't even a great fit for me.

Viable latex editor for ipad
As far as I can tell, this is the only viable latex editor for the ipad. I hope the developers continue to improve it. I use it often on travel when I'm going to meetings and don't want a laptop. Nice job. Keep it up!

It does not have useful functionalities about typing latex
It complies well but I hardly type latex code using this editor. I do not think author considers touch interface for latex seriously. I do not recommend this app.

Local compiler needs work
The app works tremendously well when compiling in the cloud. When compiling locally, errors often come up. The local compiler could use some work, but besides that, great app!

Still no good LaTeX solution for the iPad
This app looked promising, and I was initially very happy until I realized that Dropbox sync features were not working. I have been tinkering with it in various ways, reinstalling from the ground up, etc.; however, I still run into the same problems! Instead of updating / overwriting file, it creates new file in Dropbox folder with (1), (2), and so on appended to file name. Then, when I update on my computer, after "auto-syncing", the file on iPad has not updated. Very frustrating! Additionally, I've been having this issue for at least a couple of months now. Still waiting for an update and resolution. If they want this to be the best LaTeX solution on the iPad market, the developers' response time has got to improve.
