    I don't know the answer, but I'd sure like to find one, so I'm subscribing to this thread.

    There are a couple of LaTeX editors in the App Store. Search for latex, or latex editor. I've never used one, so can't tell you if they are any good or what features they have.

    I doubt that Pages supports LaTex, so a direct copy paste probably won't work, but who knows. It may be worth a try. If one of the apps will export as a small PDF or picture file those can be inserted into Pages. If it will only save the entire LaTeX document as a jpg, then you could use another app like Adobe Photoshop Express to crop, and insert that into Pages.

    That's it for ideas on my end.

    well i found an app called tex equation. It works but you have to program code so it is a real pain to use. i think it cost like $4.00. i thought i found a good one, i had to pay $6.00 for it and when i used it, it completly sucked.

    i'm a new apple user and i'm finding the fact of how much money i waste on app that are just terrible very disturbing. for example i spent $10.00 for two apps, the one there is a very small chance i might use, and there other and more expensive one i will never use.

    Yes, you have to be careful. It's not really any different than any other software market. There's good stuff, junk, and outright scams. Though if you think on it a bit, before the App Store $10 for two programs, even bad ones, was dirt cheap.

    Where it bites you is when you don't stop to add up the totals. It's so easy to buy each cheap program that you can end up spending a load of money without realizing how much you've really spent.

    Because the App Store, (especially the iPad part) is so new, in many cases the premier apps haven't floated to the top like they have in the PC world. In some categories we are still waiting for someone to write the essential app that others have to live up to.

    Apple are happy to give refunds on apps that are defective or not what was expected. Just call their support line with the purchase reference (on your invoice) and they'll credit your iTunes account. Many members have done this.
