I haven't tried the iPad version of Sagemath yet, but I have a question about it.

On the online version of Sagemath (at, using the cloud notebook editor provided within a browser, when programs or function have a call to input(..) or raw_input(..), it is NOT possible to receive user input. Try it--you'll keep getting an EOF error message.

This same functionality DOES, however, work when running Sage in console mode (i. e. by running "sage" on an SSH terminal window connected to the Sagemath cloud server).

However, I'd like to know if user input works on the iPad app version (and/or the Android app version)

My guess is not, because the underlying technology (Sage cell server) does not.

StdinNotImplementedError: raw_input was called, but this frontend does not support stdin.
