Mathematical formulae are very poor in services such as Windows Word, Keynote, Pages -- or many times totally missing, not to speak about compability -problems. So how can I create and add formulae to such services in iPad?

I answer here about this case, to keep this question here more focused.

I have probably tested now all apps and -- the only apps I can recommend are MathBot and TeX Equation. Unfortunately, the TeX Equation has a small bug as can be seen in the examples. Below you can see how poorer products such as TeXit work. The worst case is with Equations -app, the one above TeXit in the photo.

MathJax VS TeX Equation

There is bug currently in TeX equation that we are trying to resolve here. When this bug is resolved, I can happily recommend TeX Equation.

Sorry about the bug in one of the pictures, it is a bug with ProCreate -- I filled it here.
