    Specs:
    15-inch Early 2008; Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM; 10.7.5
    Unfortunately, they are different applications. The one for the iPad is a stripped down version of the OS X version so it will not run on OS X and visa versa. You have to pay for both if you want them.

    As for LaTeX:

    i-Installer Home Page
    Vim (Vi IMproved) for Mac OS*X
    VIM-LaTeX
    TextMate
    TeXShop
    iTeXMac News: TeX on Mac OS X
    BibDesk
    MacTeX - TeX Users Group
    TeX on Mac OS X wiki

    Specs:
    2012 13" MBP (2.5 i5, 8GB)
    OS X and iOS have different version of iWork - you don't buy one and run it on both.

    LaTeX can be found here.

    EDIT: Doug is quicker than I am (and much more comprehensive!).

    I think I'm aiming to knock RazorMac out of the MOTM spot

    Smile TeXShop for MBP-Thanxs
    Aprreciate all your responses to my concens. i downloaded and installed the texshop for mac, it's brilliant.

    One more question if you don't mind. Can i get Dev C++ for mac? It's what i am used to plus does anyone know how to solve the problem of flas player on mac- you cannot view some video on the mac. i know there might be past response but i am lazy to search the forum past threads:

    But that's what the search is for.

    No, Dev-C++ is not available for OS X but you can find many other C++ editors/IDEs for OS X including Apple's own Xcode. You could also try Eclipse's C++ tools. As for Flash, it's the same (for the most part) across platforms - it was designed that way. If a video won't load, start a new thread and we can go from there.

    See, that's my whole plan right there. I didn't want to be nominated in the first place, knowing that it would ruin my reputation as the forum miscreant. So by acknowledging the possibility of a return run for MOTM, I effectively jinx myself, and remain the bad a** that I am.

    Can yť dig ?
