Vancouver, Canada – InfoLogic today announces MathMagic Personal Edition 8.2 for Mac OS X, their award-winning mathematical equation editor. This version adds support for Apple’s new Gatekeeper security feature, WolframAlpha(TM) computation and search for equations and questions, reversed Radical Signs for Arabic right-to-left writing countries, and other improvements.
Selected for use by thousands of large publishers and university presses around the world, MathMagic offers easy and fast ways to write high quality math expressions, convert MathType(TM), MS Word(TM), LaTeX, MathML, and other math expressions.
Version 8.2 adds support for Mac OS X’s new Gatekeeper security technology so the downloaded MathMagic application is automatically recognized as an identified application. V8.2 lets user see the computation results of the current WYSIWYG equation or the search results for any questions in the WolframAlpha.com web site right away without manually typing complex math expressions in ASCII format or MathML.
Some Arabic countries with right-to-left writing direction need reversed radical signs. v8.2 now has the ability to enter such radical signs with automatic width and height adjustment just like the standard left-to-right square root and indexed root.
“Wolfram Alpha is great. It’s powerful and ever-evolving.”, says Charles Lee, CTO of InfoLogic, “And we believe MathMagic will help users find their high-definition results in Wolfram Alpha more easily, especially for mathematical and scientific questions. This version of MathMagic will make Wolfram Alpha more popular and more accessible.”
MathMagic works as a stand-alone application so those equations written in MathMagic can be used by wide range of applications by drag and drop or copy and paste. MathMagic reads various industry standard equation formats, such as MathML, AMS LaTeX, LaTeX, Plain TeX, MathJax, ASCIIMath, MathType, Wiki equation, Microsoft Word Equation, or files saved in PDF, EPS, PICT, PNG, JPEG, GIF, BMP, WMF by MathMagic or MathType. MathMagic reads mathematical expressions and symbols aloud via Text-To-Speech or saves in a text-based sentence by Math notation.
The superior equation quality and productivity of MathMagic have been selected by publishers and technical writers around the world for their publications and digital contents. Professors, students, scientists, engineers, and school districts rely on MathMagic for their daily math communication and education.
