No installer. Drag and drop install type app but their fonts should be installed separately so there is one more step.
Does not come with the latest Mac OS X features such as QuickLook, Spotlight, Lion's auto save, .... but not a big deal.
Does not run after the free trial period, while MathType still works in a simplified version.

Actually too much feature. Though I can still remember some TeX expressions for some commonly used symbols, I feel more comfortable with this kind of UI assisted equation editor when I need a few equations from time to time. Good thing is that I can just drag equations(mostly worked well but some equations needed some retouching) from wiki web pages on to math magic window. This saved me a lot of time. Texttospeech for equation is an interesting try. Needs more work for this TTS  their math reading syntax is not like natural math notation, variables are read by char. Their default fonts are not my type but it lets me use my own fonts.
Applying color was easy  equations look nice in Keynote.
Overall, great app. Definitely worth a try, if you do not have a LaTeX package already installed.

Would be nice to have some editing capabilities. You simply cannot reopen a pasted image and edit it. Mathtype has its fare share of problems, but the integration with iWork and Office are compelling.
Where this shines is with PowerPoint because the dweebs are Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, decided to make the file formats of pasted objects different in the Windows and Mac versions, so embedded equations are not compatible. This program uses simple pasted images, so you do not get those problems. You can do the same with Mathtype if you save as an image an import, but its a few more clicks.

this application is not really MS Word compatible  if you drag and drop to an (open) MS Word document, it appears to import your equation. However, if you save and reopen the same document in MS Word in windows, some equations might be missing! (approx 50%) in my case.
Export options are to PICT, PDF or TEX/LaTEX. The use of these formats is not widespread, and it makes it difficult to insert in a standard word document which might or might not be opened in Windows. So an intermediate step is necessary to convert to something else (e.g. jpg).
Finally, if you are looking at this application because it is on offer elsewhere, BEWARE!... they tend to limit your upgrade package to only 23 months after your purchase date.
I was a student when I got this (just graduated) and as I am writing my proposal for a Doctoral thesis, I cannot update this application.
It will be a looooong time before this company gets another penny out of me.
On a side note the interface is awful, and some of the mathematical symbols are hard to find via the button menu (i.e. looking for a particular type of mathematical notation is not that intuitive).

MathMagic does support other formats as well: JPEG, GIF, MathML, Google Docs, and others. Please double check.

You can use your version continuously.
If you'd like to get free upgrades continuously, there is a 2year free upgrade option for additional money. Or, you can purchase an upgrade later when you need new features.

It's a kind of personal preference but where can you find a better UI than this?

Why can't someone (anyone) make a decent equation editor??
