@Carl Love Thanks Carl. I think you are somewhat correct. Based on discussions at the Maple Conference in November, there is no doubt that the Maple Companion is a direction that they are moving toward. But this product really isn't there yet, IMO. (It can't read my handwriting, now matter how well I write. )And yes, there were folks who requested an Andriod / iOS version of Maple, even if it were a subset of the Mac/Linus/Windows version.
Sure, taking a photo is useful, but the ability to interact with the worksheet is crucial. Hence why I wondered - are folks taking advantage of the potential of the MapleCloud, are they not aware of it, are they disinterested or do they find the limitations and unreliability of the software causing them to ignore it.
Your experience with the Yahoo groups is akin to what I have planned to achieve with MapleCloud - but more than file sharing.
