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.

iPhone User used App!
It's super effective! Really, this is a great app for LaTeX editing, and the dev keeps resolving issues and improving it.

NO fontspec
This app has so much potential. I have been waiting patiently for an update! xelatex is useless without fontspec!

Works very well
Popup completion list as in LyX could be nice.

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...
