Great app
I've been using the Mac and iOS versions and love them both.

Pretty good, but lacks some essential things
The app is nicely implemented, and after some fiddling around got it to work with a paper template. It lacks a UNDO button, please add this asap!

Perfect
This app does exactly what it claims to. It allows you to write Latex scripts and export them as pdf files. Having never used Latex before, this and Google have taught me all I need to know so that I can write my thesis. Money well spent. One point to note is adding image files was not very intuitive and the help file confused me but other than that this app is perfect for what it does.

Linking with Dropbox doesn't work.
Being able to use LaTeX is great, but being unable to send my documents to other computers automatically makes the whole thing very awkward to use.

Really good latex editor
impressive, and meets my latex needs very well. this version seems very stable, no crashes in the 3+weeks i've been using it.

Accept No Substitutes!
This app is simply superb - the *only* way to typeset with LaTeX on the iPad and iPhone. In addition, the OSX version of Texpad is the best LaTeX solution for the MacBook as well. And now the good people of Valletta Ventures have brought us Texpad Connect, which allows you to work on the same project on your iPad and your MacBook, in a completely synchronised way.

Good stuff, feature requests
Great app. Only missing the ability to import images into the app without changing file extensions back and forth. Also needs some improvements to the directory management system needs a move function. All this aside the app works beautifully

fair to poor
Fair to poor. The editor is very unhelpful, won't remember recents or detect environments. My first doc was very simple, but contained a rendering error.

Can't make this work
This app seems amazing from the description. I am an experienced LaTeX user anxious to get an iPad solution -- so had high hopes for this. However, cannot figure out how to connect to DropBox, which renders this useless. Nor can I get outline view to appear. The link to the iPad app manual is broken on their site. Will revise this review if these issues resolved.

Need to add additional support for local style files
Overall editing and debugging really surprised me. Much more fluid than I expected. Dropbox syncing has been alright so far. I created a file in the app, saved to Dropbox, and edited it on my desktop. When I reopened the file in the app, it asked if I want to stick with the local copy or overwrite it with the Dropbox version. However, there's room for improvement: I would have appreciated it if the app defaulted to the most recent copy, or at least indicated which was the most recent version when asking which I wanted to use. But it's usable the way it is. My only real beef with this app--and for me this is a deal breaker--is that I cannot get it to use a local style file I need for a journal article submission. This style file includes a *.clo that works just fine in TexMaker but this app refuses to recognize. So, I cannot use this app to do the job I bought it for. If support for local packages was included, I would say 5 stars. As is, it's not much use to me.
