Learn and Teach

Learn and teach math, engineering, and other subjects right from your mobile device. 


What’s New

  • Support for the input command
  • Support for iOS 11 and Android O

Connect to the Cloud

Connect to the MathWorks Cloud and access MATLAB wherever you have Internet connectivity. Your figures and workspace persist across sessions, so you can resume work when you next log in.

Store your files on MATLAB Drive and access them from any device running MATLAB Mobile. Synchronize your files between your computers and MATLAB Mobile so you don’t need to manually upload or download them.

Create a MathWorks Account to get started. Unlock more features by associating your MathWorks Account to a license current on MathWorks Software Maintenance Service. Choose the option that meets your needs.

Connect to Your Computer

If you have MATLAB installed on your work or home computer, MATLAB Mobile provides remote access to your files, data, and add-on products.

To connect to a MATLAB session on your computer, your mobile device needs network access to your computer.


Acquire Data from Sensors

Acquire data from built-in sensors on your device, and send this data to a MATLAB session running on your computer or the MathWorks Cloud for further analysis and visualization.

Acquire the following sensor data:

  • Acceleration on 3-axes
  • Angular velocity on 3-axes
  • Magnetic field on 3-axes
  • Orientation (azimuth, pitch, and roll)
  • Position (latitude, longitude, altitude, horizontal accuracy, speed, and course)

Learn and Teach

MATLAB Mobile makes it convenient to learn and teach in disciplines requiring computational thinking, such as math, physics, and engineering.

  • As a professor, you can author examples in MATLAB and demonstrate them on your smartphone or tablet.
  • As a student, you can follow along on your mobile device. Create, edit, and run scripts, and instantly connect results to the concepts you’re learning.

When used with Symbolic Math Toolbox™, you can access functions for disciplines like algebra and calculus. Perform analytical computations such as differentiation and integration as well as solving algebraic and ordinary differential equations. Visualize analytical functions in 2D and 3D. Use MATLAB Mobile as a calculator and work with dimensioned physical quantities using units.
