Note Taking App that would allow you to use math symbols?

I have heard of some note taking apps in which you can type and even write on the screen, however, are there any that you can type math symbols in for the students that have trouble writing?

    I use Evernote so did a quick search and it looks like it can be used with a math editor [windows] superscript, subscript, math notations in general - Evernote - Evernote User Forum

    there is an app called My Script Calculator which allows users to write symbols and numbers.  the app "reads" the numbers and symbols.  not sure you can take notes on it.

    There's an app called MathScribe. It has several different symbol screens, and the buttons are just as small as the onscreen iPad keyboard. It does not accept handwriting; so everything must be typed. It takes some getting used to. When I started using it, I started by pushing all of the buttons to see what they did (it's not always obvious from what's shown on the buttons!). Someone would need to preview how to access certain symbols with the student before they came up in class.

    I use Mathbot. It allows you to type math symbols, equations, etc. and converts to TeX so it can be exported at a TeX string (which many apps support) or as an image (photo album, etc.) that you can paste into something. There is a paid upgrade, but they allow you to try the app out before you buy it.

    Hi everyone,

     

     

    I would like to suggest taking a look at MathSense - the first ever true math and science note taking app. It doesn't require any knowledge in LaTex, and features a state-of-the-art user interface optimized for touchscreen devices for editing text, and mathematical formulas. It is going to be launched in October this year and will be completely free to use, also it will offer some very neat premium features like seamless integration with Wolfram|Alpha to enable you to get better and faster results while solving math and science problems. It produces fully editable math documents, which can be directly saved to Evernote or any other cloud storage service. Please check it out here:

    All comments and suggestions are most welcome

     

     

    Best Regards,

    Filip

      It looks like  great app ans exactly what I am looking for but will it really come out in October?  It appears as if they are very far away for their g$10000 goal.

        Well, we already have made that app, 95% is created, just a few minor things left to be done. Our goal of $10,000 is set so we can use Wolfram|Alpha's calculations for our premium users (that is where the most of the money will go), so please, if you like it, share the link, it would mean a lot to us!
        Also, check out those perks, perhaps you find something useful!
        Thanks for the support, it is very appreciated in our team.

        As promised, our application is here in  October!
        We have finished our application, and will do some testing tomorrow. The application is rewritten completely from the scratch. The only thing you need to get started is a google mail account. Also, it has become social, solve challenges, share solutions and get on the high score board!
        Stay tuned, I will post link here in a few days, should not take longer than 5.

         

        The application is in beta stage now, we will give out links and then wait for your feedback, which is very important to us, we sure do want to improve the user experience.

         

        I will be back in a few days, see you then.
        And, by the way, the application has been renamed, it is now called "The Mathist".

    Hello,
    I am back to update with the status.

     

    The application is in open beta.

    Visit our website TheMathist.com and get started! The only thing you need is a google or facebook account, and you are ready to go!

     

    #EDIT:

    We are adding wolfram|alpha integration to the website now, it will go live in a few weeks (not longer than a month, I believe).

    You can type some formula, select it, click the solve button, and have a solution in your note!

    Simple, powerful.

    It's never been easier before, check it out.

     

    Send us feedback, comments, critics, suggestions,

    help us make it even better.

     

    Some functions are disabled for now, and will be enabled in the near future.

     

    See you soon on The Mathist.
