The MATLAB Mobile app provides a lightweight MATLAB desktop on your iOS or Android device that remotely accesses MATLAB running on MathWorks Cloud or on your computer. To use MATLAB Mobile, you need to:
For more information, refer to the system requirements.
MATLAB Mobile provides access to a MATLAB session running remotely on MathWorks Cloud or your computer—MATLAB is not running natively on your mobile device. To use MATLAB Mobile to connect to your computer, your device needs to be on the same network as your computer running MATLAB. MATLAB Mobile and the MATLAB Connector are intended for use behind a firewall on a private network. Virtual Private Network (VPN) use is recommended when used over the public internet or via 3G or 4G.
See MATLAB Mobile documentation for more complete information:
You can execute functions and scripts by calling them as you would from your desktop.
To get help on functions, use the help command. For help on the app, go to the Settings screen, and tap About > View Documentation.
With a figure displayed in MATLAB Mobile, tap the Show Data Cursor button until a cross hair appears. Drag the cursor to the desired location. Release your finger and wait for the data tip to be displayed. Data tips only work with figures, not snapshots.
When figures are no longer open on your computer or the cloud, their thumbnails have a blue camera icon. These figures are stored as static snapshots on your device. To see the figures with more detail, rerun the plotting commands.
MATLAB Mobile does not support:
When connecting to your desktop, MATLAB Mobile provides command-line access to all the products that you are licensed to use on your computer. If you are licensed to use Simulink on your computer, you can run the sim command from the MATLAB Mobile command line. The Simulink graphical environment is not supported.
MathWorks Cloud is a service that provides access to a MATLAB session on the cloud. When using MATLAB Mobile to connect to MathWorks Cloud, you execute MATLAB functions in that MATLAB session.
See Connect to MathWorks Cloud for more information.
If you meet the requirements (see Requirements to Connect to the Cloud), you can connect to MathWorks Cloud at no additional cost.
MathWorks Cloud users receive 500 MB of storage space to upload MATLAB files and data. Once uploaded, users can run these files from their mobile devices. Learn more about MATLAB cloud storage.
When connecting to MathWorks Cloud, you can access all products available through your license.
Yes, you will be able to connect to MathWorks Cloud from MATLAB Mobile as long as your MATLAB trial is active. You can upload MATLAB files and data to the cloud.
Please note that you will need a trial for the latest version of MATLAB. When connecting to the cloud, you will be able to access MATLAB and all products available through your trial.
When your trial expires, you will no longer be able to connect to the cloud from MATLAB Mobile. Furthermore, you will no longer be able to access the files and data you uploaded or created in MATLAB Mobile. As you near the expiration date of your trial, please remember to download your files and data.
