Easy to use When you know how...

Ok app, free version crippled Useless for large projects - it refuses to compile projects of more than two files without upgrading. This is something LaTeX supports, and it's required for many use cases, so it's frustrating to see it removed. If you want to sell your paid version, try adding value to that rather than removing value from the free one.

Struggling to sync It's fine to work with and write but I'm struggling to get it to sync to an existing tex document in my Dropbox... Any suggestions? Will give it a better score when it works!

Disappointment. No Unicode support right off the bat, and LaTeX2e/XeTeX/etc. are out of the question for 'free'. I can't come close to making any use of it.

Ich bin zufrieden Die App macht was sie soll und mit Hilfe der Spracheingabe ist das Ganze auch noch höchst effizient.
