I would like to thank and congratulate Maplesoft for coming up with a free Maple Player. There has been demand for such a tool for a long time and it's great to know it's here.
I also think it's great that Maple has an app. I haven't tried it yet.
Edit 2: I have now tried the Maple player and I successfully read my worksheets in the player. I was also impressed by the ability to rotate 3D plots in the player. So far, no problem. As far as I can tell, the worksheets must be saved in executed form to be readable in the Player (this can mean large worksheets if you have multiple plots). I intend to use the Player right away to share simulations with my co-author. I am very impressed.
The download is huge, does it have to be so big? Edit 3: I understand that the executable has to be large to be able to read any Maple worksheet.
Could you put the Maple player on a torrent to ease download? Is that something users can do? Thanks!
Edit 1: How about a free Maple calculator? The Maple calculator is my favourite tool. I would love to be able to use it as a standalone, to carry it around on a usb stick. You could also make a web interface for it: something like this http://web2.0calc.com/. To make the Maple calculator available online would be a great ad for Maplesoft. I bet many people who own Maple are not even aware of the existence of the Maple calculator.
