Is there a (La)TeX distribution running on iPad?

Very simple app that I am trying to find: suppose I have written a long text in my Laptop in LaTex but missing images. I am lazy student and I want to just photograph the photos to the document and insert them fast to it. Does there exist some LaTex image-insertion app?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

...sorry for proposing closing, I refocused this question now thanks to the feedback. It is not anymore dupe. This request was in my original q. – hhh Sep 29 '12 at 18:47
Step 1: Take photo in usual iPad way. Step 2: Upload to the TeX Writer Dropbox folder using Dropbox. Step 3: from within TeX Writer, click on the photo and adjust the size as needed. Step 4: click the "copy and paste" button to write the \includegraphics into your LaTeX document. – Loop Space Sep 29 '12 at 19:59
This is turning into a question more about iPad apps than about TeX and so is in danger of getting off-topic. Indeed, a version of this has now been asked on the apple site. – Loop Space Sep 29 '12 at 22:41
You can use the online LaTeX editor writeLaTeX to easily add photos to a LaTeX document: capturing a photo is an option on the upload file menu when writeLaTeX is used on an iPad. – John Hammersley Jan 20 '13 at 15:24
@JohnHammersley use Jquery-uploader Dropzone code to create such "easily add photos to a Latex document". Your thing is a previewer -- if you could add it Apple OS X-style-Dropzone functionality, it may become useful -- not sure yet (uploading photo required clicking many things and then showing it required to remember an one-liner). Please, add DropZone and format detection to do it really "easily" -- hope you success! Demo but make it simpler. I may be able to help with it if you cannot get it done. – hhh Jan 20 '13 at 16:09

Might want to look into TexPad (9 USD), not sure about directly sharing, but it has dropbox synced up, so you could at least share from dropbox.

do you know whether you can photograph and then embed that photo straight away to the LaTex document? I had to refocus my question, this feature is something I am really wanting to get: photograph and add fast photos to your LaTex document with iPad. I have laptop to write things fast but adding pictures is a pain. – hhh Sep 29 '12 at 18:43
Texpad developers here. You can import images from the photo library or from the camera itself into Texpad. Please see the link for full details: support.texpadapp.com/kb/user-interface-ios/… – VV Texpad Jun 3 '13 at 15:13
@VVTexpad yes and please add some Apple style such as wipe-over-removal tool, press-your-finger-for-a-while-multifunction-tool (with fast addition of pictures, fast moving of files/dirs), autocompletion missing for common commands, local typesetting bugged with relative paths such as images ./Pictures/hello.png not working while Pictures/hello.png working, local typesetting not showing the mistakes with the relative path problem but cloud typesetting shows them -- real artists ship. You are getting better but you still need to go to the goal. Less is more, less typing more thinking. – hhh Jun 3 '13 at 18:23
