Of interest to readers of this list, this app/book is, I believe, a first: it is self-typesetting on the user's device from TeX source code.  See <> for a few screen shots.  The typeset math of course looks great, though it is not very complicated (high-school level).  The app contains its own high-performance TeX-language interpreter, which I've been calling JSBox.  The TUGboat article I wrote a while back on how it traces itself is here:
An interesting and innovative approach, Doug, but do you have plans to 
develop it for other platforms (Windows, Android, whatever).  I have no 
Apple devices, nor have I any interest in the same, but I am interested 
in your work and would be interested in trying it (even paying for it !) 
if it were available for platforms in which I have some interest.
