Change the default template for new .tex files:
Add a file called 'template.tex' in your local root project folder (/Android/data/verbosus.verbtex/files/Local/template.tex). The next time you add a new document to a project the new .tex file will be filled with the text of your template.tex file.

Use any .ttf/.otf font:
Put your font file inside your project and reference it in your document:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{fontname.otf}
\begin{document}
\section{Main Heading}
Это тест
\end{document}

You can write chinese in PdfTeX using the CJKutf8 package as shown in the following example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{CJKutf8}
\begin{document}
\begin{CJK}{UTF8}{gbsn}
这是一个测试
\end{CJK}
\end{document}

You can write chinese in XeTeX using the xeCJK package as shown in the following example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{xeCJK}
\begin{document}
这是一个测试
\end{document}

It's exactly what I want. Typing code-like things on a phone is tricky, but they include some of the more syntax symbols, ()/$ without needing to change your keyboard settings. Previewing the document is easy. And yeah, at the end of the day, you're writing a tex file, so you can use the cloud sync feature, or you can just copy it to run with another engine elsewhere.

Nice for 1 page doc, but some serious shortcomings for longer ones. 1. Strange bug wherein after typing a character the window moves to the end of the file. 2. No search utility, really? 3. Generating a pdf takes you to page 1, rather than where you where editing. 2023-02-14: Ah thanks, I didn't realize that "Action Toolbar" meant "Find & Replace". :)

Thank you for your report. We fixed the bug after writing a character in the current release. Enable Action Toolbar in the editor for search/replace/undo/redo. We're planing on creating a custom viewer which would do what you want. Please contact us directly if you have any questions.
