It also fixes common TeX problems automatically, automatically installs missing packages just like MiKTeX on Windows platform.

On Android 4.4 and 5.0, there might be permission problems when compiling files in external SD card.

This free version only provides the most commonly used TeX command, namely pdfLaTeX. Check out our full version for Xe(La)TeX, Lua(La)TeX, ConTeXt, DVIPS, BibTeX, PS2PDF, etc.

Notes: For your safety, TeXPortal Free exits itself whenever it is interrupted (i.e. put to the background) such as when the screen rotates, you press the "Recent apps" button, switch to another app, etc. Therefore, please keep your screen on, lock screen rotation, do not plug in keyboard, etc. when compiling documents.

This app might download additional packages from the web. To save your data plan as well as for the best experience, run the app when you have a stable WIFI connection.

    Uninstall after the latest update required inexplicable permissions to share all sorts of data from my device with some ad company. I've used this app since its infancy and am very disappointed that this version is now driven by ads.

    Just got a tablet (Galaxy Note 10.1) and had to look at getting \LaTeX. This installed easily and ran beautifully on an old document. The required packages downloaded and everything ran like it is supposed to. Great piece of work! The author has restored the pdflatex capability that was missing in recent versions. So all isgood again. Many, many thanks.

    I almost went and bought the paid version. Feel cheated with the removal of functionality here. Will have to find another way now.
