LaTeX on Android

Postby Bullwinkle » Sat Feb 16, 2013 7:36 pm

This may be the wrong place to post this question, but I am working on professional articles in LaTeX constantly. Does anyone know of a distribution of LaTeX for Android tablets? This would help me very much in my day-to-day efforts.

  • There's a TeX Live 2012 port, still in development but announced to be released this year.

  • TeXPortal

  • You can root your system and install a basic Linux running standard TeX Live.

  • You could use online compilers, perhaps together with a local editor, some have Dropbox integration or similar.

On that last point, I have put together an online LaTeX compiler with exactly this in mind. It uses Google Drive for its storage, revision control, syncing, collaboration, etc., and you can use the native Android Google Docs editor.

There exists a LaTeX editor called VerbTeX which lets you generate a PDF from your LaTeX code. It has some useful features like Dropbox integration, collaboration and syntax highlighting. Maybe worth a try...

Btw, It's available here: or in the Market of course.

There is a new app on the Google play store that can typeset LaTeX document, ... .texwriter
