    Dear iPad developers, please take a moment to read my description of the requested app.

    (the app I want is built in to Windows 7 btw)

    Imagine the screen split in two in portrait mode. The lower half is drawing area, the upper half is product area. When I draw an equation in the lower, the app must recognize it, and output a beautiful equation as we know it from applications like MathType for Word and Pages.
    In the very upper right corner, there should be a "Quick-Mail" button. This should NOT open a new mail from mail app. This button must send the picture of the equation to a predefined email you define in settings. So you can receive it quickly on the mac.

    Its a built in accessory in windows 7, and works remarkably well no matter how insane your equations get.

    Thank you for listening

    What would be the advantage of having this as a native app rather than just using Remote Desktop into your Windows 7 machine and doing it there?

    Do you think it could somehow take advantage of the iPad's touch interface to manipulate the equations? (e.g. drag & drop the symbols to move them around)

    I prefer working in OSX, as the only advantage in W7(bootcamp) for me is the equationtyper accessory.

    And yeah, some drag/drop of symbols could be a cool feature... but basically I just need a clone of the W7 thing for iPad. Would be so useful,... damn I wish I had actually done some work when I had programming back in the days.

    This is an app that lets you typeset equations, but not in a visual way:

    Yes, this is almost exactly what I'm looking for as well. Something in the same vein as OmniGraphSketcher for Ipad but for equation typesetting instead of graphs/diagrams.
