MATLAB® Mobile™ sends all commands to the cloud or to your computer for evaluation.
Your device does not perform any calculations or store any workspace variables locally.
The keyboard in the MATLAB Mobile application includes an extra row of commonly used special characters.
You can tap and hold buttons with symbols for additional characters. For example, the parentheses button provides access to brackets for array construction, as shown here on an iPod touch device.
Similarly, the semicolon key provides access to additional punctuation, as shown here on an iPad device.
The up and down arrows on the keyboard allow you to scroll through your recent commands. Alternatively, access your Command History by tapping History.
To adjust the font size for the Command Window, tap More > Settings: (iPhone and iPod devices) or (iPad devices). Then, move the Font Size slider.

you exit the application and are available the next time you connect.
