I remember an app that was featured on the Mac App Store a while ago that allows you to write mathematical formulae into an image.

I can't find it now though. Does anyone know what it is?

  • how do you want to write the formula? with keyboard (latex format) or with a mouse/trackpad? – Enrico Susatyo Sep 28 '11 at 12:05
  • Mouse/trackpad would be great. I've actually found out that it is Brisk, but is there an app that does this without using LaTex, with a mouse/trackpad? – JFW Sep 29 '11 at 18:55
  • You would be better placed accepting the answer and asking this as a new question, to help future searchers benefit from a more focused question & answer. – stuffe Sep 30 '11 at 9:38

Check out "Brisk", MAS link and screenshots etc here: http://www.chocomoko.com/brisk, Youtube screencast demo here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVeJ4_DErX0


It isn't in the Mac App Store, but try LaTeXiT.

As you might have guessed, it uses Latex input to create an image of the equation. You can link the image into a Keynote or Pages document (or others, I'd imagine). Live updating, etc.

I use it frequently, and love it!

    Note that you need to be familiar with LaTeX to use this app. That said, this is a spectacular application... it can export as png or pdf, many customizable options, keeps history of previous equations, and other stuff. I relied on this app for all of my presentations during my graduate (and postgraduate) career. – eykanal Sep 28 '11 at 14:23
