So far , super impressed by the functionality of even the free version . Support the developers they are doing people a huge service

So the only con is that you Need to pay for the more detailed explanations and ita not a one time payment, it's a routine thing, but the app is free with great qualities and helped me cheat through A test 😗

I like the fact that its usefull not only to students but to teachers as well. It helps you improve until your the best Im thankful to the creator of such app for making it I hope it will continue to be free so that other people could experience math without problems

Thanks for ruining one of the best solving math problems by making it a subscription app... now you have to pay a monthly fee in order to get a complete procedure...

Saved my life in school, can't thank you guys enough, this app is the simplest, most easy to use, and explains okey-ishly even with just the free version. Most importantly it understands my writing very well unlike the Microsoft math app where I'd have to take a picture 100 times or so 💀 and again I insist on the simple UI/UX and explanation that's what made the app for me, wish I could give one billion stars!

This is truly a wonderful app. It helped me when I struggled with math especially late night maths and I can still see how it is worked out. ❤It would just be nice if it can show more steps and explain more

I'm giving this app three stars because because everytime they show up the solutions of the problem I took a picture of, They solution that I actually need is premium or whatever it's called. If it wasn't for that I would give this app four or five stars.

It's a the best app I've seen so far and it helps with solving math problems by showing you the steps but I rate it a 4 star because they should remove the premium edition

Helps me alot, but you really need to add shapes questions and LCM (Which is suprising it wasn't in ages ago) It's already the best Math App but it could be better.

It is very much reliable and understandable and it also provides accurate answers not just for a person who doesn't understand a math concept but it is recommended for even marking your answers

Unfortunately, this app doesn't scan my questions whenever I use the camera function. Don't know if it is a glitch but I did try it on multiple questions

I like using this app when I'm working on math problems but i think that this app will be a bit better if it was able to solve word problems but other then that i really like this app (work smarter not harder)

I don't like it at all I tried to do my math homeworks with it but at school all the answers was wrong . I did understood the topic a bit and the way it's giving me the answers doesn't seemed right

I downloaded this app after seeing so many positive reviews but I didn't liked this app bcoz I took a pic of my sum and it was totally clear but still it said that we could not recognise it and I tried so many times but it didn't work. So it's better you fix it soon.

Really helps me with math homework, when i was younger i had to call my mom for her to check if i got the right answer on a problem, now with photomath i just scan the math problem and i get the answer! I recommend using photomath if you dont understand maths. Never got an ad in this app.

Good idea for the app, but very limited, does not solve many problems common in high school math, although it says "We can't solve this problem yet, but will soon", I'm waiting for 3 years and they still can't solve the problems.

The best math app ever it makes doing every day calculations really easy and fun to understand. I've only just installed it and honestly it is so much more better than using your standard on phone calculator. I highly recommend this amazing app to anyone you will certainly not be disappointed.

It's pretty good, some problems can't solve and I get why but the worst thing about this app is that you have to pay for the premium if you want to know why something is done that way.. And again it's obvious why you made it that way.. Still nonetheless.. It sucks 😅

May 26, 2022
It is great app and can solve almost 80% of my my math problems but it dosent tell the type of the expression, it should also contain a mathematical dictionary and the developers should update it often & often to add more sollution and make this AI expert in math alot more than humans.

This app is a life saver, no limit to how much you can scan, it answers correctly, and it teaches better than my teacher could. No lie.

This is such a good app and it explains a lot to me. It's very useful if your stuck on a problem because it breaks it down and that's very helpful. So I definitely recommend. The only reason it's 4 stars is because some answers are just not there yet.

This app is incredibly hit or miss. When it comes to simple agenda and arithmetic, it works well, but with higher level math it falters. The steps are often incredibly vague, as if you just entered the expression into a calculator, which isn't what I expect from an app that claims to explain solutions in great detail. I don't want to just solve the equation, I want to understand why the answer is what it is, and you can't get that with this app reliably.

I've been looking for an app that actually helps. I was trying to take a photo of a math problem but it kept saying "we couldn't recognize this problem" like I thought you guys help with all math problems. This is why I give this 2 stars.

The app helps me so much. And the only annoying thing is that I sometimes don't understand some equations it solves so, then I have to pay to get a free month to let it explain it better. But overall experience is very good 😊

Photomath is fantastic, it solves all mathematics equations, roots, limits, graphs, functions... not to mention some which needs a lot of efforts and time. At all, photo math has been become like my teacher because it solves my every question with deatils.😻😊❤

This app is great if your questions are all numerical. It's pretty simple to use and the calculator function is pretty good too. Like if you too a photo of a question that was 10x4 it'd probably figure out that the answer was 40. However the problem for me is that it doesn't completely understand word problems or graphs or anything written in words really. When you take photos of these things it just says that they can't understand the problem. Please fix this ASAP then I'll change my rating. 🙏

Works well, probably one of the better apps to use for difficult math problems. Its definitely saved me countless amount of times for school, and I love that it explains how to solve it with many steps and multiple ways of explanation. Just wish it understood word problems.

I see that you have made this app online for a better user experience, but the best experience I have achieved is "Opss our server is experiencing issues". I live in Iran and if I cannot use this application due to sanctions then I am very disappointed in you; if not, your servers are just insufficient.

Awesome app! It's really great for when I'm doing homework or studying and need help understanding the process. The only issue I ever have is sometimes my camera doesn't focus and I can't take a picture, but if I exit out of the app and go back in that usually fixes the problem. Absolutely recommend!! (It does have a premium version, but the free version works better than fine!)

This app is so much useful. I give it 5 star are because it help me to solve math problems and as far as I used it, it don't even have one problem. I really recommend this app to all people who are struggling with math questions especially equation. Thumbs up for the developer and team👍🦾.

The app is overall great amd it helped me in my final exams so much but I noticed that It does not notices the brackets, like the line bracket and small bracket and that's why it makes the whole sum into a wrong one. I suggest the team to make it able to see the brackets and algebra words too. After that This app is great for every kind of mathematical problem . Thank you :)

In a live photo map helps me with a lot of my school work and I love it in general sometimes it doesn't work but most of the time it does and oh my God it's the best thing a girl can ask for so I suggest that everyone should get if they're horrible at math like me I think it would be the best my grade has went up so much is unreal so I think that everyone should get photomath because it's the best learning way you can also you steps to so if any I honestly think it would be the best way to learn

It's a pretty good app not gonna lie but the fact that you have to clearly PAY for steps and I heard it was free once and then you say "for a better experience" it's not a better experience it's just being greedy and I can't tell if your doing the problems right without the steps I need this app for school, please fix it

This app is a life saver and has made my life so much easier in so many ways. Instead of having to go through a text book you can just take a photo of your problem and it shows you a step by step guide on how to do the equation. My only TINY issue with it is that it takes a bit of time for the camera to auto focus on a math problem or maybe that's just my phone. But other than that 10 out of 10 app, would recommend!! P.s. The fact that there are no adds just makes it all the more better.

Photomath's new feature for explaining equations are pretty handy for students in need. Of course it comes with a price and a subscription. At least the worries are in how the equation can be solved.

The explanations are too vague. The graphs and parabola dont tell you where to plot points. Other than that it works great. Edit: Now it says it can't even recognize certain questions that are the same it answered before? What did the new update do. It cant answer ANY question. Also when is the camera quality gonna be fixed?

I love this app because not only does It solve your problem, but It also shows a step by step guide for the problem and an explanation for each step. It also shows shows graph versions of some problems, so basically the solution, but on It.

Really good for equations and im guessing photomath plus helps you out even more with actually understanding the material. Only thing is sometimes it may use something we havent learned yet and it cant really underdtand word problems but for the most part its really good

This app is amazing. I actually love this app because it explains how to do the problem but you also have to buy premium to get the full explaination but still shows you how to do it and help and makes math easier. I recommend it for anyone struggling with math😁😁

Ever since I was little I used to be scared of English letters nowadays I'm not, I think, and due to this app I was able to finally get rid of my phobia of English letters in math and finally be able to answer them, I greatly recommend this app to all ages 2-99 this will prove greatly useful against the son of the demons which introduced letters to maths.

You have made it too paid, every solution is totally short without any precautions if you do not pay, and then this is an app for students who do not even have a credit card or what, then certain calculations are different from a person's way of doing, but they are still too computerized, in fact for example in functions or inequalities or in absolute values, solves in a strange way different from the usual, and then the price is totally high for 12 month.

This app is very good helps me with my homework and helps me understand also helps students/kids when they are stuck helps them to not give up I give this app a five start rating cause it sure can help you with your homework and helps you understand what your getting into gives u the right answers but you can also check ur answer and see if it's correct

First of all,App is great but their is one problem for which I am giving it 3 stars.The problem: When you start taking the photo of the question you actually can't take the whole photo ,Half of my question was left because the camera didn't scan whole question instead it only capture a few words.So it is the community request *Make camera scan bigger*.

I must say that whenever i try to solve the sum by my head for hours and hours, i turn to photomath and it does the trick. What i love most about this app is that it explains every step in detail. That is how great it is!!!

Photomath is still the best but it needs to change. And it's been a long time coming now. It can't show results for so many problems. This is frustrating!! I am tired of this now. A lot of problems just can't be solved by the app. Please resolve this issue in the next update, Photomath. You'll be the undisputed leader!!! EDIT: They added some more expressions & made the app better. If it improves further, I will give it 5 stars again. Thank You, Photomath! EDIT: Thank you, it's good enough now

The best math app I've ever seen! You can clearly see where and why your solution goes wrong and why. I'm so sad though that features like detailed explanation e.t.c are now behind a paywall. It's ok but I thought adding ads let's say at the bottom of the app will be better than that but it is that it is I guess. Props to developers anyway!

Photomath helped me through out the last three years of highschool. And despite the stigma surrounding the app being an easy way to cheat, it actually teaches you how to do certain formulas rather than just give you the answers.

Zoom is set on maximum and i cant change that. That wouldn' t annoy me, but when i take a photo, its like offset to the left. But the calculator works at least. I hopo you will fix that asap. (Xiaomi Redmi 8) Edit: Thanks for reply, im changing the rating 🙂

This app help me understand on how to solve question easily. But, ofc some of them is hard to understand and need to figure it out myself because of the pro limit. BUT recently, photomath explain on how to get the calculation from 1st to 3rd or 2nd step which is very helpful. This app would only help you calculate for a math problem such as "1+2-(-3)=" or even fraction!! It could not help you with sentence problem sadly. But, overall would recommend this app so far... 👌

The best math solving app ever, but the reason I am giving 4 Stars is that you can not scan the whole problem, you can only select a limited area, so that you cannot scan large problems.

The app is excellent, it does all that it's supposed to do and works very well. It has a variety of ways to solve equations and it also shows you how is solved it so you are able to understand it. My only problem with it is that when you try to take a photo, the resizer is a bit restrictive but that could easily be fixed

Super helpful. There are some apps which just simply give you an answer .if you're really trying to figure out how to get the answer, that's no good. This one you have to pay for the extra stuff, but it does give you step by step problem solving , WHY you do certain things and chat with someone if you still don't understand it. All in all I think this is a great app. The only thing it's not really up to date on are word problems , at least I haven't figured out to make them work.

Look, you're probably going to use this to cheat on your homework, but the thing is, this actually helps *teach* you how to do it, at least partially. If you were paying attention to the lesson and know how to solve it, and just forgot which method to use, this is an absolutely remarkable tool for studying and reviewing concepts. Helped me study incredibly efficiently for a college algebra test using a public study guide, and I genuinely was able to recap an entire year in the span of a week!

Very easy to use. Feel like there could be more options for different things. It just seems very minimal and basic, like take photo, solve, explain, done. Which is great, I just want to be able to write equations and such. But over all, def worth 5 stars,⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

You have to pay for too much. Also, you can barely adjust the size of what scans the problem, so it's basically impossible to get the entire problem in the picture without getting pieces of other problems as well, which confuses the simple AI and won't solve your problems. Why use the whole camera if the box is barely adjustable? Worthless app

This has helped me so much in Algebra especially since they provide each step to get to the solution so you can see where you messed up. They also graph functions for you and that feature is amazing! They also don't have an overwhelming amount of ads. The app also has a feature where you can look up you textbook and the from the problems in the book.

Edited: I have found multiple problems with incorrect answers. I still find it useful but have spent a fair amount of time chasing my tail. I am taking precalc classes at home, so this is the closest thing to "asking the teacher" for help that I can get. They offer a method of reporting incorrect answers, which I happily do, but no way of checking back to see if the feedback was accepted and corrected. Also the books that claim they are fully solved are anything but. Manage expectations.

Can't recognize question vocabulary.... Like it would be better if it could understand the question, extract the information and then carry out the calculation.... I would even pay for this.... but nah, it just calcutes a set out equation, the rest is yours to figure out..... Decent app though, Thanks

I just have to leave a review full of praise for this app because it is literally anointed by God and I take no criticism please and thank you. As a homeschooler and as someone who uses the Saxon Algebra 1 book this app was absolutely perfect. It has all of the Saxon Algebra work problems answers, it got me out of sticky situations and it helped me realize what was wrong in problems I couldn't figure out. I can't tell you how much this app has done for me, thank you to the genius who created it

This app is alright, I like using it to figure the questions I cannot figure out but some of the time for the hard questions it wants you to pay and as a student I have both A no job and B only so much money, all in all a great app, the developers defiantly deserve to make you pay for more features. I would recommend this app.

Are you kidding me? I often use this app and found that it always loading. This is not caused by my connection. I can play online games, youtube, and even Mathway, and all of that works very well without lagging. But, why Photomath loading very often? So I must wait for a long minutes until the answer appear. Maybe the question is a little bit hard, but it wasn't like this before.

It was excellent at deciphering my near unintelligible handwriting, showed the steps, and has a great user interface. Only thing is you shouldn't use it on its own as some if the ways they get answers are on the complex side and if you are here that's probs too much, best used as a supplement to check work and give you hints.

Incredible work photomath team! other math solver couldn't run on my phone. But this app runs so good. An yes, the accuracy, even if I miss 2/3 of my sum it can still recognize it(also my bad handwriting). the solves are easy and crystal clear for me but there is only a stop in this plus point streak, if you could add the option to write down and take photos fron the device that would be awesome. Anyways, Best of luck 😄😻

Omg I'm a student and this app is the only thing keeping me sane, I'm so grateful for the reduced amount of ads, the help with calculator symbol ranges, the problem solving picturesque, and I cannot thank the people who made this enough!! It is so amazing using this and I hope you make no alterations because the app is perfect as it is. It has my Algebra math book on the app and provides detailed answers for FREE! I have not gotten the paid version and am perfectly content with the normal one.

I was pleasantly surprised by this app. Almost everything on the playstore, be it game or tool, is much harder to work with than it seems or just floods you with ads. And if not those 2, it costs money up front. but this free app is actually really useful. It rarely has trouble solving problems I see, and even shows the steps to solving them if you happen to care about that. And in all that time, I haven't seen any ads. They're probably on something I haven't used yet. Overall, really good. Ez 5

Honestly, it's a great app. Only thing I'd change is, that if there are multiple different way to solve a problem, then u can actually see the different ways. Currently i struggle to calculate with simple fractions and i often don't get the result. Since my solving way is different, i also can't check where I went wrong.

Like Every other promising app in this marketplace, money will always catch up. It's understandable to add some form of monetization. Creating tools isn't free, especially one as in depth as this one. If only they didn't take such a great feature and throw it behind a paywall. Take turning an improper fraction into a mixed number for example. It's only available in the animated "plus" version. I like this app, but frustrated now I have to pay monthly for what used to be a free usefull tool.

Contains a great and useful calculator. Is good at explaining the math problems and has answers for my school textbook. Some actions are restricted because of the premium purchase but it doesn't get in the way too much. Is easy to use and adjust the size of the picture and see how they solve the problems.

I LOVE this app! I have always struggled with math since I was little and this has quite literally saved me from failing all my math classes It has the camera that scans your problem and almost always gives you an answer that is correct. The only thing that I think should improve is the step by step problem explaining. I saw a bunch of reviews that said that they used to be completely free. Although this app already makes my life a little easier, it would be even better if they were still free

They responded to someone else's review just 10 days ago stating that the core features like explaining the steps to a solution are still free. This is not true, the explanation to how problems are solved is not free at all anymore. I had this app for a few years and used it a handful of times. It was extremely useful, until they stopped giving the steps to the solutions for free. Without that it's nothing more than a fancy calculator.

For a calculator that uses the camera, its definitely beyond its game. Being able to explain through the steps helps people understand what and how an problem can be solved. For general purpose I think it's pretty reliable. It also has a built in calculator and if you need to change something in the problem you just scanned using the camera, you can fix/edit it with its edit problem feature. I'd say I love having it and it doesn't take too much space. Nice👍

Perfect for any math problem! I also like how there is multiple options to choose whether you are simplifying or solving or just about any type of problem. I recommend this for use on problems you have troubles on. Click the button that says explain steps and it teaches you really well. Remember to just try to solve as much as you can on your own.

Best app ever! I've used this on my old iphone at school before the coronavirus lockdown and it was very useful. You can scan the math problem and it gives you the answer and shows you how to solve it. I'm using a new Android phone rn and the camera on it is very low quality so it won't scan very well, but there's a flashlight feature that can help with that so it's good. Also very lightweight app! If this app would be available offline that would be great. Keep up the good work! :)

The app works fine, not great, but paying for the premium version is not much better, and is very misleading to Uninstall. First of all, they cancel at the end of the month, so you are still on the hook for one payment. Also, deleting your account doesn't unsubscribe you. It took a month for me to notice this, so, boom, they got me for another months payment.

I keep trying to take a picture or type in the problem, but nothing is working. It works for one or two questions, and then says "Sorry, we don't recognize that problem, make sure the entire problem is within frame" and then I get fed up, close the app, open it again, and it does the same thing. It won't show me the steps either, without paying a ridiculously high subscription. I know you have to have subscriptions, and maybe some ads here and there, but is the price of the sub really worth? No

Glow: Most of the equations I put into this app are automatically solvable and the way the app is organized helps me understand it better. Grow: I could use more of a variety of ways to solve the problem. Yes it will get the correct answer but not in the same way that it is taught in the class. Other than that, it is a great app

It is a great app to get things done when working. Mathematics haven't been easier until I saw this app, none of the Premium stuff to look at the steps. Mathway and others had premium in their steps, which was really annoying. Rate this 5 stars, you guys should try it to get some algebra and such done a bit quicker without causing your brain some stress when working.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great app but it has major downsides. You have to have amazing handwriting and it needs to be written perfectly or else it'll solve for something else. It kept thinking "20" was 2 to the power of zero. It said "10" was "12" or "B" and something's it would add a theta(ø) at the end for no reason. Also, you can only solve one problem at a time. It would be nice to just be able to take a picture of a while paper and have it show the answers below. A calculator is easier.

Could be improved. Especially the types of equations it could do. But overall, I thing it is really good. It keeps up to date and uses the most recent way of answering and is fast to answer. The app tells you if there are any other answers if you are look for any. And instead of just telling you the answer, it tells you the steps to answer the problem. And the app looks very clean.

Definitely something you can count on for accurate answers. Speaking from personal experience of mine as I used photomath during my senior year of high school specifically for Pre Calculus. It shows full steps with explanation from expert answers including mathematical books. The camera works perfectly fine and the overall look is simple and the best. Keep up the good work. I know its not possible but would love if you guys gave out free answers at least in a year without subscriptions.

This has been really helpful, with my daughter's algebra-algebra2. They show you step by step how to do each problem that you take a pic of😊 i definitely recommend it if you are having a struggle with some math problems. I gave it four stars because they do not allow you to take a picture of word problems 😔. But most other math problems they, have answers for.

Best app I could have asked for rn. It is so simple to use, yet VERY helpful. I'm just testing it on few easy multiplication problem to make sure it would do well on my real homework. It would be even better if there is a feature where u can scan word problems. Overall, it's the best, keep it up!

Absolutely amazing app with an even better subscription, get the yearly Photomath Plus! It is most definitely worth it! I mean you can even get the answers to a whole textbook, mine was just added but for some people might not have their's. But they do have a big variety of textbook answers that should be helpful one way or another, 5 stars.

It has step by step solutions. Able to solve most math equations. It CAN divide polynomials, but most of the time it doesn't. It's random. You can't tell it to divide polynomials because the choice doesn't exist, but rarely, sometimes it will recognize it. Example: if you were to take a picture of (x-2) in front of a long division sign with a polynomial inside, it would only factor the polynomial, or treat it as a fraction. It's entirely random. It either divides it correctly, or not at all.

This app is really great! I've got a lot of school work done using it and now have an A++ in my math class :) I also always make sure to read the explanation, because whenever I don't understand how to figure it out the explanation is really helpful. I would add a feature to solve word problems however, as I noticed it lacks that skill. As well as ability to take more than one photo. I had a really long problem the other day and a tool to take multiple photos would have been great! 4/5 :)

2 years in and I adore this app. I hate apps that only give you answers, but no work to get to them. If they do, then you have to pay. It incentivizes students to cheat rather than learn. I want to actually learn how to solve the problems, so this app has been such great help in College level Calc 1&2. Only issues is sometimes, the answers are not simplified all the way. Also it's unnecessary to turn every single decimal value into a fraction. It's just makes it harder to follow the steps.

I absolutely love this app. It has saved my buttookis more times than I would like to admit, and it explains the steps instead of just cheating and giving you the answer. Only reason why it's 4 stars and not five: you have to pay a subscription to get the best explanation. I would rather watch an ad or even pay a one time payment to gain access to the premium version. Thank you, photomath. You are truly my favorite AI tutor.

Overall perfect app. If I could change anything, it would be the inability to solve graphs. (Counts as cheating in most cases. Use it as a tool to learn, and not a fast-pass through homework, and you'll find that you will learn much more quickly.)

I don't really like rating apps but "Photomath" is great for helping with all kinds of problems, it can use your camera to take photos of your math problem and actually solves it. "Photomath also has an inbuilt calculator so if your problem isn't physical you can still use it, the calculator is more advanced from almost all others around. -Insuke

I love this app! It has helped so much with my sons Algebra! It gives you all the possible solutions, so if you don't know the name of them you don't have to keep taking pictures and starting over. It also gives you the SOLVING STEPS for free!! Which is so helpful, because you can actually learn how to do it the correct way or figure out what you are doing wrong!! Photomath has even taught me easier ways of solving quadratics compared to what the teacher was teaching! This app is AMAZING! THANK

as long as you can write legibly enough your devices camera to get a clear pic of the problem, this app is actually surprisingly powerful. I've run into a few types of problems where its told me that it was unable to do that type of problem yet, but the math wasn't anything a typical person or student would come across organically. i'd wager any math that probably ≥90% of the population. would ever need this app for, it's easily capable of computing, and rapidly at that. a "basic" calculator is also included in this app.

Amazing! Can even read pretty messy handwriting. Can do most things, maybe excluding a little. And when it gets it wrong (Which is almost never) you can edit the problem so it will calculate correctly. You can even adjust the size of the box so you don't get the number of the problem in there. Very helpful!

So helpful when I'm stuck on an equation. Always has a great explanation on how to solve the problem step by step! And has different ways to solve equations.

I need help with geometry, and I expected to just take a picture of the shape and get help but it always says I'm scanning it wrong when it's clear and in full view!! I would really like it if this could be added to photomath WITHOUT it being photomath plus.No other app helps, so I would really really like it if you could add a feature where we can take pictures of shapes. Other than that its good 👍

One of the best apps I have ever seen in my entire life. I have been looking for a way to catch up in math, this is definitely the solution for that. The app has so many math textbooks and this let's me learn all everything I never learned or forgot about math. I only leave reviews for apps that are exquisite or truly remarkable. The fact that you can write an algebra problem, then using the back camera to capture problem and offers to show every step for you to learn.

Honestly, this app has saved me so much pain and effort, but it has also caused some mild frustration. One of my few gripes with this app is how fidgety the camera is. It will recognize a long division problem one day but think it's a square root problem the next. It could use some improvements, but beyond that, it's a pretty solid app.

It could use a little work on the camera. It would be nice for the camera to pickup pictures on the computer, I'm not getting much help like this app is supposed to give me. Also add commas I can't tell you how many times I need commas in math. Especially when you are graphing! One more thing add a space bar. You need space bars when you are trying to find (3,6) (7,8) on a line. When I enter this on your app these are my options. "(7.8)(8.9)" Again it would be really nice if you could add those.

I was really needing a app that showed me steps and also made it easier to find an answer. The software I use for school is very picture heavy so this sounded perfect! I was unpleasantly surprised as when I snaped the pics to get an answer it either showed an obvious incorrect answer or it said that they could not see the expression and I need to try again. It does work with just worded answers though. To sum up, if your questions are picture heavy I wouldn't bother with this app.

Amazing app. Shows textbooks, explains step by step, and has a better calculator altogether. Highly recommend. I use this pretty much anytime I need math or science help.Only downside is, you have to pay for the step by step in the textbooks after it gives you the answers. But for pretty much anything else, it gives an extensive explanation.

Great app. Not only is the scientific calculator fully functional, its also really easy to use (for the most part since there is a little learning curve) the photo ability works as advertised. Great for complex and long problems. There are still some stuff that photomath can't solve but definitely getting better. There is also a premium version that gives even more information on how to work through problems. It's so good that you can learn math throug this app. Recommended to all.

It's super helpful with algebra! Sometimes I run into a problem it can't do, but sometimes I can rewrite it and it works. This app isn't much good for geometry though. The camera is super easy to use, and the instructions are pared-down to an instructional but consice feature. I love it!!

I'm an adjunct instructor in a community college. I teach courses in electronics, automation, and industrial engineering. So, yeah, a bit of math involved. A student brought Photomath to my attention several years ago. I was a little skeptical of how well it would be able to recognize various equations, etc., especially handwritten problems. So I installed the app and gave it a try. I was immediately impressed by the optical OCR and the way solutions were presented. It's outstanding.

Its a really great app, explains the problems step by step to show you how to complete it. If you're confused it really helps. However the app go up to high on their horse and is now making you pay for everything. Students don't always have the option and when you try to buy it won't even load.

Such a great app! I was trying to find a canculator that could give me awnsers in fractions, decimals, and mixed numbers. This is the only one I could find! It is very quick to go through the different solutions and taking pictures. I reccomend this app for any use of a canculator. If you prefer to type in the canculator area you can do that and take pictures of the problem.

Best app for someone who struggles with math. The break downs of how to solve a problem are done in a way that even the person who just doesn't understand, will finally understand. Definitely worth the paid version if you're a student. The app explains things better than the textbooks and even the teachers, in my experience! Can't rave enough. Download it, it's brilliant.

Works very well and it's very helpful of how it shows step by step directions instead of just showing a final answer. Only thing you have to make sure is that the scanner scans the problem correctly, and if it does scan the problem wrong, try scanning a second time and it will usually work then. Overall, very helpful and useful app.

The app is okay. For more advanced problems (Pre-Calculus or AP Calculus) the app is close to useless. Yes, they give you accurate answers and some steps, but many of the steps are skipped. You have to pay for the Photomath Plus if you want the explanation of the missing steps or a specific step. The camera is a helpful feature, but the fact that the steps aren't always clear or explained unless I pay, is the reason I rate this app 3 stars.

This was very helpful to use at my school when teachers weren't around. Unfortunately, this doesn't solve A LOT of math out there, and sometimes it solves problems in ways that I was not trying to solve it in. It excludes all word problems, but I am interested in their textbook feature they are adding. Especially since there is a vote for textbook option, that means this could replace my other textbook app.

Photomath is going to be your best friend in middle and highschool NO JOKE. my homework gets done at least 30 minutes earlier now! It's as simple as cropping the screen to fit the problem, taking the picture, and seeing the answer! And if you need to show 'your' work, you can just press the botton that allows you to see the steps. And if that wasn't enough, it explains the steps if you also want that! This app is a MUST HAVE!!!!

Always good! Sometimes it cannot solve certain things but that's because I am a 2nd year calculus student so an app may not be up to that standard of solving quite yet. Other than that it is pretty great, no ads that I've noticed and the design is simple and sleek!

Probably the best app if you're trying to fly through some algebra. I'm a good 3 weeks behind on my current class and I just don't have the time to type stuff into other calculators and hope it solves it the right way. With photomath I just snap the picture and I have aaaall sorts of options to choose from when it comes to solving it, so I'm getting big problems done in a few taps. :}

Very good app, it can solve all kinds of problems.

Photomath is really helpful when you need help with homework. It shows each step to better help you understand each problem. I'm really glad that they offered their paid version of the app for free during covid-19. My only issues are that it cannot solve a handful of problem types, and it misreads problems a lot.

In my opinion, I think the app was awesome for most of the math questions and was very helpful explaining how to work the problem out, but i am giving 4 star because when I would enter some of the math problems it will tell me they could not solve the question or currently unavailable at this moment. I do recommend the app and pay the extra fee for better results. It's worth the money!

I love this app. I'm studying for the IBEW aptitude test, and it's been a very long time since I had to do any kind of complicated math. This was extremely helpful in walking me through the steps. I was especially grateful for the free trial during the pandemic. Unfortunately I cannot justify $10 per month, as much as I wish I could. My hope is that somehow the high subscription rate either gets lowered, or maybe there is a modified version that gets released with a one-time purchase option.

It does all kinds of probldms! And shows you the steps to solveing them too. I used to think of it as a cheat sheet, now I think of it more as a tool. Also, a lot of other reviews said they had to pay for things. I have the full app for free and I didn't spend a penny on anything! It would be awesome if they made a "photoELA" or other subjects too. It is 100% ad free. Not even little side ads at the top or bottom. It is great!!

The app was pretty cool too play with at first but then whenever it really came time to use it, it couldn't recognize any of the problems. Any problem that involves a shape is unrecognizable. It would either say it couldn't solve it, or this random expression would pop up and be solved. If basic geometry becomes a feature on here maybe I will reinstall.

This is the best app ive EVER used. Its amazing at reading everything put down and ive had this for less than an hour and have had no issues whatsoever. It solves everything percectly and when you take a photo of math problems on paper it even ignores the number before the problem! Absolutely stunning. It reads everything perfectly too and offers steps and everything and i have never been more pleased with an app. It exceeded my expectations.

It is great to use. It works on mostly all problems with an exception of some variable solutions. I definitely recommend this app. It also teaches you how to solve the different types of problems/solutions.

I paid for photomath plus just to see the extra steps and explanations. It was not worth it for me, as I wasted so much time trying to get the app to take the right size picture of the problem. Not only that, it would take a picture and not read the problem correctly. I took pics from my book, my worksheet, and also copied them onto notebook paper to see if the issue could be resolved, but it still wasn't after many retakes, and time wasted trying to troubleshoot. No, it was not my camera taking wierd pics, because I tried other apps (that are free, mind you), and the other apps worked just fine, better even.

Helps out with math, but you have to pay to unlock all of the explanations on how to do the equations. Really frustrating when you don't know how they got a certain answer and you really need help with the problem. Edit: Does anyone realize that Microsoft has a math app that works just as well and is completely free?? And it goes in depth when explaining a problem.

The app is great but 4 stars. Everything was fine until I had to get to cross multiplying and it show up a completely different math problem. Instead of cross multiplication I received some math chart that didnt have anything to do with my problem. I tried to look around the app to help me. I was taught to do cross multiplication using paper and not calculator and sadly I still have big troubles with it if there is a way I could do it to fix this it would be very helpful.

A friend suggested I download it for a college math course. It helped me figure out how to solve quite a few problems when I just couldn't figure out what to do. The solutions steps helped me learn how to do it, so I could do future ones on my own. The app couldn't figure out a few of the complex ones, but that was mostly getting almost to pre-calc level. It is able to solve the VAST majority of math problems for you and will even explain how to get the answer (sometimes even multiple ways!).

This app is extremely accurate, and it really shaves off a lot of the time by explaining the solution instead of just handing it over. My one complaint would be that some equations are solved different, such as using a more advanced equation I do not understand. Amazing life saver.

It makes all my picture come out as a nonsensical blur, making it unreadable. Somehow it would get a decimal equation from a square root equation, even if the picture was somewhat readable. Or I would take a picture of a problem, and it would say something like "We don't have an answer for this problem yet, but we will soon." It's just ridiculous. And it even let me rewrite the answer to the problem I needed help with! It was almost like a carbon copy of Wikipedia. Just plain bad.

It is a wonderful app to help with math work. It's sometimes a little hard to get it to scan properly but usually it will work again the second time. One good improvement would to be the ability to take the solutions (such as derivatives) and put them into the calculator to be edited.

As of recently the app has been very glitchy. I had to restart the app at least three times before actually being able to scan a problem, and then the screen froze up and kept kicking me out of the program. That, and accessing the solving steps causes the whole screen to bug out... please fix, I really like this app besides that!

This was AMAZING. But the last few updates aren't. -1 star for removing the tab system (should've brought it up before): now the calculator gets cleared when you leave it for the camera. It was fine the way it was before. -1 star for the ads. I know you guys need to make money, but this of all things is not the place to do it. If I'm sitting here trying to get my assignment in on time, the last thing I need is an ad to pop up, ruin my train of thought, potentially distract me, and waste my time.

Solving most equations work great although it might not scan correctly the first time. This isn't a camera issue because certain equations will scan flawlessly on other apps. Was a big fan until they loaded it down with ads which appeared around every 5 or 6 times you would scan a problem. Very disappointing.

Best thing on the face of earth, even without premium. Very helpful explenations, helps me to see where I messed up and check my work. If it's this good free it makes me wonder how much better it would be to have premium. Additionally it doesn't have very many pop up ads, so it's not an annoying kind of free. Only issue I have is that I always have to take the picture twice, the first time it says it doesnt recognize the problem, even if it's a clear picture.

I've been using it for about 3 years and it's helped me pass several math class's by helping me figure out tough problems if if need be. Now the app is useless. Solutions have been outright removed with some problems. Now you have to buy a sub to get anything like it's original abilities. Oh and you get ads as well as loss of features. Shame on the Devs for putting monetization over a good product and reputation.

Ok so it may seem like a malicious piece of software made to cheat homework... But I have used it a few times to walk me through problems that troubled me or things the teacher had not taught yet. I know it is used to cheat homework and I have seen people use it in this way, but this provides a thorough explanation to each problem that goes in my way. It has a very impressive text reader and can somehow read my [awful] handwriting. When it does mess up though, you can always correct it, too.

This app has been such a great help, it makes teaching your child math as easy as taking a picture, literally! I had my doubts about how well the camera would read the problem but after weeks of homework everyday, it has not failed even one time. My only possible suggestion would be to have an option to hide the answer to the problem for teaching purposes. Can't recommend it enough! Excellent!

This app used to be great, but it just auto updated and basically took away the only useful feature I needed. In the problem solving steps, instead of offering to show the steps, there's now a button that says "explain how". Clicking on it I just get a prompt saying I need to upgrade to unlock that feature. I was under the impression that core features were supposed to be free. Guess not anymore. Uninstalling; I could just bug my professor for the money I already pay.

Literally no one here has $10 lying around for PhotomathPlus. All the responses from the team talk about how it's needed for fees for AI tutorials, etc. However, Im assuming that what we need the most (answers/COMPLETE steps) would still be free to run right? That was how it was done before the update. Could there be a setting option to just turn off all the fancy stuff and go back to no ads/complete steps w/o using money? Or just create another app (that costs $ to download) w/ the new things.

this app was actually really good and helpful but then they started putting ads and charging you money for the explanations of the math and I just hate that. I can kind of understand it because they are just trying to make some money from all those ads because they know that lots of people are starting to use it more. whenever I see an ad pop I feel like throwing my phone across the room and strangling a baby. It just turns into a calculator because you have to pay money for the explanation

This app is my new favourite calculator! It's super helpful with the algebra that we're going over in class and it gives great explanations, better than the teacher had! Definitely gonna use this app for years to come. Only downside that I found is the camera is a bit wobbly and doesn't always keep the focus, but that could just be my phone. Other than that, perfect app!

The update messed up everything. I've been using photo math for years now. Not only did I use it for getting homework answers to my assignments, but also it's useful in teaching me the procedure for doing a math problem. It was today when I tapped the "explain" button and the whole new "Photomath Plus" offer showed up. At first thought this was an app project to help students, not do business with them. But now that's changed. Uninstalling since it no longer serves my needs to explain problems.

After the update now i get ads in between each problem i do. that is very annoying when im trying to do homework. Now it also asks for people to get the Premium which probably gets rid of the ads and now gives you the explanation through the paid app. Greed ruins apps. 👋uninstalling because of ads. I want to do homework not look at ads.

It is very convenient in doing math homework; yet, at the same time, there exist slight inconveniences in the design update, such as the instant problem solving. Before, you had to press a button, and it would scan the problem. You did it when you were ready; now, it immediately solves, scanning other problema on the page and messing up my answer that I need when I turn the phone away.

THIS APP IS AMAZING!!! of course, it can be used to cheat on homework, but if you do that, you're only cheating yourself. However, for me especially and I'm sure a lot of other people as well, I struggle with algebra a TON. this app really helps me to understand it well. If I dont understand a problem in my homework, I can just snap a photo of it and it will solve it, but not just like a calculator where it only shows you the end result, it also let's you see the steps it took to get there.

This is an incredible app! So helpful when my math book doesn't give me the answer, and when I'm trying to find out why my answer doesn't match the correct one. With this new update it waits for you to take a picture, and that is so much better! You can adjust the camera box so that it takes a picture only of the problem. The explanations are easy to understand. I would give this 25 Stars if it were possible. Edit: I got a video ad today. :( Not cool! Only 5 stars now, not 25.

I've got to agree with the negative reviews. The new update made this app just another calculator by taking away the main free feature of the app. Giving you the answer is fine, but understanding how you came to that answer is just as, if not more, important to know. Now you have to pay 10 bucks a months. See ya later Photomath. Maybe charging a monthly fee for full explanations of complex math would've been a better plan than charging for all math.

Really helpful stuff, and it helps teach you how to do the problems so that way you are still ready for tests. So I do not recommend using it on your whole worksheet but if you learn how to do it and make sure your getting the subject. It doesn't hurt to solve those filler problems on the sheet real quick and give you some free time, or more time to do homework.

It think that it should be free and have ads, rather than no ads and having to pay a subscription fee. Also, not all of the answers are even correct. For instance, the problem was to be put into slope intercept form and it put the problem in point slope form. But, most of the time it is correct and well worth the cost.

The app's smart calculator is super helpful for example when you need to add ,subtract, divid, or multipli fractions because other calculators don't have that feature ,and the camera feature is also useful for when you are in a hurry and neen the answers quickly. Not only that but the camera feature allows you to modify the range of space the camera use up. And probably my favorite part of the app is how it show you the steps to your answer so you could know how to do it. Over all a usefull app.

App was great before update. Now half of the time it gives me incorrect solutions and I can't even report the problem on the app like I could before. The new camera is also difficult to use, sometimes you can't even get it to take a clear picture. It also takes forever for it to take the picture, so your stuck there struggling to keep the camera still and in focus so it will maybe actually correctly scan the math problem. And its also a pain to try to shrink or expand the camera box.

It helps me when I need step by step help. Good for reviewing fundamental rules...I prefer typing in problems, equations verses photo input. However, app could use more options to input equations and expressions. Math is a challenge for me, I've used the app for two semesters now along with others, makes steady time less frustrating. I like the app.

Fantastic study tool. Good for someone confused and trying to learn something and also good for the guy who wants to take a picture and copy down the work and answers. However, I've found it very useful in figuring out how to do problems. Main tool in studying for midterms right now. One bug though: half of the time when I take a picture, the camera just defocuses and it can't get the picture and I have to try it again a few times to get it. Fix for 5 stars.

It is a very well made app! It is really useful for when you dont want to type in the whole equation and just take a picture of it. It helps a lot when I am struggling on a long equation that I dont quite understand. Photo Math gives you an option to look at how the equation is solved, to learn how to do it, or if your teacher needs to see work on the paper. Very wonderful app! 5 stars!

Okay, this might seem strange since a lot of critical reviews are complaining about the update, but I personally LOVE the new layout of this app! Step by step solutions ABSOLUTELY FREE! No WiFi required! My math exam scores keep improving since Photomath came into my life. You really care about struggling students. You could charge for steps and just give us the answer (which is still helpful) but you are like a personal tutor working for free. I love you guys!!! Thank you 😊❤️

I don't understand why they removed live reading. It was very easy to scan problems, but now that we have to actually capture the problem instead of just hovering the camera over it, it became much harder. My camera tries to auto focus which makes the capture blurry and unrecognizable. What was achievable in one try before, now takes me multiple tries to get right. Please go back to live scanning.

It is very useful for when I don't feel like doing certain problems that would take a lot of time and when I don't understand certain problems. The way it breaks down the solution into steps, make it so helpful for when I find myself with a similar problem and I can apply those steps to solve it. I truly appreciate the people that made this app, it make my life a lot easier.

This is a wonderful app. The camera function doesn't work that well, but it gets it sometimes, and honestly the camera is the least important part of this app. If you can be bothered to take 15 seconds to type the problem in manually, the answers and visual graphs are excellent, and combined with a cursory understanding of the type of answer you should get, will net you As for sure. That being said, be honest with your work, and use this app as a supplement for doing your math work properly.

Although I very much enjoyed the scan feature, it made things pretty quick, I see why they removed it it makes things more fluent in the app as you use It. As well as the actual scanner itself more accurate. Over time this app has continued to become better and better and functions as a great resource for me to help out in classes such as honors pre calculus.

This app is an absolute godsent for any excessive math work and works to find the answer nearly 100% of the time within the first go of focusing the camera on the problem. It also dives step by step all the way through even the most complicated of problems to insure that if you want to fully grasp and understand how and why a problem, you will.

I no longer have to wait for my teacher to have an availability for those singular problems that just don't look right- this gives you not only the answer, but a complete walkthrough with optional additional steps, other ways to solve the problem, and highlighted changes as you progress so you don't get lost. It doesn't work as well for fill-in-the-blank math questions, and won't give you the characteristics of a graph that you take a photo of, but it graphs equations and you can edit wherever.

Only reason it's not 5* is because of the new layout that changed with the update (10/24) love the app but hate how much more difficult the layout is to use with all of the pop-up information I am just constantly having to X out of the box. Also very rarely takes a clean photo on the 1st try (photo comes out clear on the 2nd try most of the time) almost like a glitch in the app. My phone isn't the issue camera is great on the new Samsung.

Tbh, this app is really helpful for my everyday math homework. Not only I could get the right answer, but I could also study it because it shows the steps for every solution. However the cons of this app is that, it takes time to make the camera focus on the math problem and its annoying because there are times you have to retake the picture either because it's not the accurate question you captured or the picture is really blurry. Another thing is that, sometimes it is lagging.

Photomath is a life saver. I'm able to understand when working my way up to get the right answer step by step. It's amazing, have been using it since middle school for my algebra homeworks. I like the update and new design at the start that was made. Although it would be great to see the most previous solution (coming from the bottom) seen by swiping up.

Does great at breaking down proper steps when system understands problem. It would be great, if you could have a menu option where you could change what you are looking for. Like instead of just solve, find the LCD or the y-intercept. Something like that.

This is the best app ive ever downloaded. With a regular calculator, some of my work would take hours. Photomath takes 5 seconds. Ive only encountered one issue. When i take a picture it tries focusing, but fails, so it takes a few tries, and when i try focusing it doesnt. But other than that its amazing! Also, i still even learn a bit because it explains the problem.

Pretty much the only reason I passed Algebra 2. The range of problems it can solve is frankly astounding. It gives graphs, factors, and can read actual equations on the page. The interface is clean and easy to use. Sometimes I don't even use the photo mode just because it's the best calculator out there period.

Love this app so much! I get so much homework and this makes it go by a lot quicker! Unlike other apps similar to this, it gives you the step by step solution. And because my professor requires showing your work, it helps a lot. I also love how it has no ads! This is very uncommon and I love this aspect. Now my one problem, the camera. The camera is really bad, and you have to take a couple pictures before hand for it to focus. I would give this five stars, but the camera drops it down a star.

The only reason I rate Photomath a four instead of a five is that sometimes it takes a second for it to register the correct equation. I would also like to say look over the equation that has been scanned to make sure it matches. But a big plus to using this is that it shows you the steps in case you dont understand how to get the answer.

What they got so far is great. Like a very advanced calculator is all this is, but not to mention how it's a lifesaver. I only gave it 4 because I feel it can still be better in it's computing and recognizing the type of math problem it is. So much of math in reality is described in real-life scenarios; and that is what it lacks. But it's great! And if they could describe more of the process to the answer so it can also be a useful learning too mixed in.

Awesome, versatile app for scanning problems from the computer screen or from paper (hand written or typed) to solve, graph, find the domain, ect. Very useful for checking your solutions before submitting them. They're are a few things it can't to, like graphing linear inequalities and displaying complex solutions to equations in standard form. Overall it's a great app.

I haven't done school Math problems in over 20 years, so helping my kids can be difficult when I cant remember myself. This is a perfect tool to help me quickly calculate an answer so that I can compare it with what my kids calculate to know if they are understanding. AND, it has helped me a ton with becoming reacquainted with problem solving so that I can help explain it to my kids. The animated help is a great feature!

I used this app on my galaxy S7, and it worked great and was very useful. I have recently swapped to a galaxy S10 and the app now doesn't load, it just sits on the loading screen and doesn't work. I'm still giving it a good review because when it is working it is great, but I really hope that the problem with it not working on S10s is fixed really soon.

It's an alright app. Sometimes the math is done differently than what you've been taught. Some things, like quadratic equations with 2 potential answers(with the potential to be an imaginary number) will come up as undetermind with little or no steps. I do like that it shows steps but if you're unfamiliar with the other ways, it can be frustrating. And I wish you could shut off the noises in the app

This app is amazing. I have the worst camera quality in the game but the app still picks up my equation written sloppy for most of the time. I f downloaded don't delete. It will come in clutch. Expecialy in a school scenario. I have an idea though, if the app could take a picture of an inequality equation and plot it on the number line, THIS WOULD BE THE BEST APP EVER.

I used to use this app a lot and it was so useful! But after the new update it keeps freezing on the loading screen and I have to constantly uninstall and reinstall to only use it for a few minutes before it crashes again. I recently got the Galaxy s10 so it's weird that I'm having problems now.

I would give it a 5 stars if the app worked. I would always have to delete the app and download it again to use it. It's always stuck on the loading screen which I find weird. I use a Galaxy S10 so it really shouldn't have any problems, considering it's an recent phone. Please fix this crashing issue. I can't do anything with it even though I love this app and it helps me with what I do.

I like the app. It's a lot of help and it teaches better than halg my teachers. My only problem is an update. When I first got it, the app would scan constantly until it found the problem or equation. Now I have to take the picture myself which is impossible because it makes the camera zoom in and out and focus and unfocus CONSTANTLY! It would be much easier if it just did what it did before and just scanned constantly instead of having to take a picture that's too fuzzy because it won't focus.

whenever I tried to use the photo portion, it would always focus whenever I tried to take a picture, resulting in a blurry picture and the scanner not being able to read it. it worked the first couple times though, with good results. other than that issue, it is a good way to do math.

This app is great, but one of my favorite features of this app is gone. Before the app would automatically scan math problems without having to take a picture, this feature was AMAZING! it saved me soo much time as I did't have to constantly take a picture for each problem, all I did was hover my phone over the problem and boom it focused and scanned all by itself. Bring this feature back!

I don't like this new version. With the older version, you didn't have to take a picture and it could focus much better with the problem because once the equation was focused even for a split second, it could scan the equation. Now i can't get the camera to focus long enough to get a picture and that makes this app impossible to use !! Pleasr go back to the older version, where you did not have to take a picture because Photomath really is a great app if you are able to use it !!

Photomath is extremely useful and can easily identify complicated problems from by Algebra 2 textbook and solve them instantly. The best parts are the steps that tells you the specific steps for the entire problem. While it can't solve word problems, it still blows me away with its functionality at the price. This is a great app and deserves more recognition.

it solves things well, but I do wish that it showed a bit more on how to solve it becuse at least for me I use it when im not sure on my answers and when I dont understand them and that would make it more useful for me. Though the app does help, it does give the correct answers, the photo part actully works and It does everything that it claims to do so its still definitely worth installing if your having trouble with problems or want to check your work.

This app is godly. It automatically calculates the answer to the problem, shows its work, and graphs it. Recently, I had been struggling with a topic in math and just couldnt figure it out. After using this app to complete a practice problem, I looked through the work it did and I immediately understood what to do. This app is very handy for students in any grade and I 100% recommend it.

My teacher will introduce a new subject each week, with only one day of actual teaching, before handing out a packet and telling us to finish it by the week. We are allowed to ask for help from him, but mental illness and some trust issues related to the past have left me unable to ask for help. This app teaches the math in a way I can understand and is super helpful for math problems I didn't even know existed a week ago! Thank you!!!!

Photomath always has the answer your looking for. Not to sound like an advertisment but, they are constanlty updating, making sure you get the right answer. I would recomend to anyone who hates math class. This makes things so much easier. All you need to do is scan your equation (which doesnt always work with bad handwriting) and it will give you an answer and a step by step way to solve and show work.

While I agree the amount of math this app can do is stellar, It can't read letters as it claims. Long math problems can't fit, because the scanner can't read multiple lines. I wish it could do this, because sometimes I can't tell if it's multiplication, more than one operation, etc. I reccomend this app to check your work, because it cannot solve big problems or word problems. But, with the amount of math it can do, and the accuracy of the camera, I suggest this app for students & teachers alike

Very helpful and clearly-understandable steps I like playing with math, and used to be pretty good at it, but if you don't practice, you forget. Now that my kids are in Middle and High School, this app lets me help them by reminding me of principles and theorems. The app is efficient, easy to use, and makes good use of the device's camera for input with minimal errors.

It was a long time ago that I had last reviewed this, and recently I decided to try this again. And this app has mad some drastic improvements: the camera qaulity is much better, the math is more efficiant and accurate, it can solve more problems. Everything is good, but is it poasible you could find a way to choose something to exclude, as it adds the problem number into the problem. Everything else is great. 5 stars.

Absolutely Astounding! This app impresses me more than a good app has in a while. Its incredibly useful for checking your work and it can help solve for "X", graph solutions, and much more! I recommend this app to anyone in a class currently. I really appreciate the fact that with the problems the app isnt sure how to solve that it will figure out how soon. Lately I've been grabbing more homework just so that I can use this app! Download and enjoy!😊

This app really is incredible. Works great, no ads, and completely free. Using this in a science class environment, it would be cool if maybe it had some formulas and constants built in, as an add-on, or even the ability to save them myself. Regardless, this is definitely now on my list of apps that get installed right at the start on a new phone. Thanks a lot for this one...

It's pretty good. Shows you how to do a problem step by step and all you have to do i scan the problem with tour camera. You can also use the in app calulator and the app graphs certain equations. So I really like it. So yea, if I were you I'd donwload the app. But I'm not you so I can't physically do that. But you should.

I like all the features it has in it. It has a calculator and if you want to get the answer to a problem really quick, you can just scan it and it will tell you immediately! Also, if you don't know how to solve a problem, there's also step by step... steps they'll give you too! I love this app, and I've been keeping it for a couple months now and it's been working fabulously. P.S, if you create a profile in photomath, the app itself will get a lot smarter.

Extremely helpful! This app allows me to format an equation in a really nice way, it has different features to make problems less confusing rather than typing them in to a conventional calculator. plus the photo is really nice for quick easy problems that would just be a nuisance to type in. Only thing I'd change is maybe add a advanced mode for higher levels of math (Algebra 2, Trig., Pre-Calc, e.t.c)

It is a bit tricky to center the photo, and they need to add more diverse equations as well, I would rate 5 if not for that, but all in all, it is a great step by step guide and really helps reduce the workload while simultaneously helping me understand my school work, this is a great calculator and I will continue to use it

This app is a life saver for those hard problems you just can't solve. A single point of the camera automatically tells you the answer without hassle. It's great for checking your work, too. I recommend this to any student who needs a reliable source to check their answers or any lazy student who would rather get the answer without the work (tsk tsk). 10/10👌💯

This is an excellent program for showing the solution to equations step by step, letting you see where your mistakes are. Each step can be broken down to their simplest form and the rule applied in that step is well described. The UI is very simple yet complete & intuitive. The photo capture of equations is simple & accurate. Simply an excellent tool for anyone learning any level of math, grade school to university. The best math tutor app bar none.

Extremely helpful app, especially for somebody like me who isn't the greatest at math. I have a hard time learning from my teacher, who tends to go fast through the lessons and never posts notes. I am extremely satisfied with how the app functions: the fast recognition of the problem, the explanations, and the multiple ways of solving a problem. If it wasn't for photomath, I'd probably be failing math.

this is a MUST have for any student or teacher, it's so easy to use and has great results. it can give you some pretty complicated answers, give you a step-by-step, and even read handwriting really well! it's rare that I come across an app like this that doesn't push adds on you every 30 seconds and you can tell that it was made with the intention of actually helping people. I'm honestly surprised they don't make you pay money for it because I'd gladly pay 5-10$.

I'm absolutely terrible at math, but this makes math super easy and quick. I just used it for one assignment on factoring trinomials, and the first three I did in class without this app and they took me about an hour and a half to do just three. I just did the other nine in under twenty minutes! It's super easy and amazing, I can't thank you enough.

The app is pretty useful, but to an extent. They still havn't figured out how to calculate the area of a 2D shape yet, and a few other things as well. Also, the camera constantly trying to focus can be annoying. Im not sure if this is because of the app or your actual camera, so imma let that pass.

Amazing! Went above and way beyond my expectations! Rarely messes up and if it gets numbers wrong, you can go in and edit it with the smart calculator. Amazing sight. It can read the question in poor lighting, you don't even have to have perfectly steady hands to scan the problem, they can be wobbly and out of control! Lol! Amazing app! Genius! Props to the developers and anyone involved with this app. One of the best apps out there! Get it now!

It is very helpful. When i get stuck on a Math problem i just take a picture and it shows me how to solve it!. I just hope their can be a way that you could do a animated process for other problems. There is a couple of problems that confuse me because they look like what you think it is but its different than what you expect. Like 5 yd 2 ft 3 in -2 yd 2 ft 9 in When i take a picture i had a feeling it wasent going to know the problem and it didnt. So i would like if you could add those problems. Its fine if you can't i was just wondering. Great app though!

Very easy to use and very helpful, but you have to be careful there were solutions that I was taught differently than what the app shows, but that's only because people teach different styles, while the app shows you one way... at times. But other than that it's the best thing to have!

As a student struggling with math, I can definitely vouch for this app. It doesn't just solve the problem. It works through the problem, and shows you each step. (Which I think is especially helpful when it comes to algebra.) I've used it to spot my mistakes, and work through trouble problems. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work with literal equations. I recommend the app to my younger sister, and she pointed this out. Aside from that, this totally deserves a five star. 100% recommend.

I'm not really big on using applications for help when it comes to solving problems quick (and mainly like to do it/figure out things on my own), this app is probably the most helpful, easy and quick way to get answers fast as well as explanations if you dont understand how those answers came to be! Even though sometimes when you photo a problem it doesnt give you exactly what you wanted (for example when you want to factor a problem but instead it gives you a graph of said problem, or vice versa), when it does work it gives you exactly what you need and even a step by step process of how to get to that answer. Though I dont recommend this to people who just want to get homework done and move on, if youre really in a rush and/or want to figure out how the problem solving works, this is a really great app for it! It comes with a normal scientific calculator aswell. (And the the fact that it comes in several languages is pretty cool too.)

The app is well made and designed, little to no bugs and unbelievably good functionality for a free app with almost no ads. It's helped me a lot with my math not only because it solves problems but because it shows you the steps and processes. It includes graphs, an amazing detailed calculator and it can even read your own hand writing. 10/10 would recommend for everyone, if you ever do math you should have this app

This app was super helpful! Only have a small amount of time to finish your work? Have to show your work on paper? No problem! This app shows you all of the work necessary! Personally LOVED it. Step by step explanation to equations that I didn't understand. Easy to use. 9/10 (because the app isn't finished yet and they don't have all math equations) but it's Great, recommended to all math lovers or haters.

This is very effective and efficient in what it does. Then goes above and beyond by actually teaching you to a degree. It does so by actually laying out the steps taken to solve the equation if you were to do it yourself. It has an instantly updated answer, number for number as you are typing, or when the reading is taken. Overall this is an amazing app and the creator(s) deserve props for making such an excellent app and for free at that and without annoying ads. Amazing product would definitely recommend.
