Need to develop LaTex documents? TeXMaker for Mac combines a lot of features and tools in just one easy-to-use application. The app is well designed and offers many built-in shortcuts that you can use to improve your productivity.

The app comes in a 40 MB zip file and could take a bit longer to download. Once unzipped, TeXMaker for Mac weighs around 115MB. This app was made specifically for developing documents with LaTeX and would be a welcome tool for any LaTex developer. It comes with a lot of useful features such as spell checking, a unicode editor, an integrated PDF viewer, wizards for generating LateX code, and more. It also offers an amazing library of shortcuts and quick codes to decrease the amount of time spent typing. There is multilingual support for those who prefer to work in a different language, too. The interface is very clean and easy to use with the ability to modify and add different windows to suit your working style. During our testing, the app was responsive and performed well.

TeXMaker for Mac offers an effective and feature-packed development tool for users who need to write and develop LaTex documents.
