MathWorks took its first step into the world of mobile computing this week, launching MATLAB Mobile, a lightweight version of its technical computing language for the iPhone, iPod, Touch or iPad. MATLAB Mobile, which delivers a remote connection to MATLAB running on a desktop computer, enables engineers in the field to have command line access and view the same MATLAB figures and programs they have running on their desktop computers. By having the app installed on a mobile device, engineers gain entrée to their MATLAB workspace and maintain a record of commands typed on the iPhone or mobile device in their command history. The app is available for free from Apple’s App Store, and users simply need to install the MATLAB Connector on their computer.
