A picture is worth a thousand solutions

Photomath is a simple app you can use to solve complicated problems and equations with ease.

This program is a must-have for math fanatics. In fact, it might replace your trusty calculator. Here you don’t have to go through the tedious manual input process. You simply point your phone’s camera at an equation and press the button.

The app will provide you with a solution and the details on how it solved the problem. If you want more information, though, you have to purchase the full version. Nonetheless, the free trial has plenty to enjoy.

The best part of Photomath is its speed. You’d expect a calculator to provide instant answers. You might think differently of an app that scans, solves, and explains each query. In fact, you might encounter a math problem with multiple answers. This app will detail each one.

This application is easy to use. It has a simple interface and requires very few system resources to run properly. The camera function is built-in and works wonderfully. Within a few taps, you’re able to scan and find answers.

There’s a large potential for students to use this program to cheat, though. A calculator normally speeds up the time it takes to solve simple parts of a larger problem. This app provides the answer and detailed steps. It’s almost impossible for teachers to identify cheaters that use Photomath.

Where can you run this program?

This app runs on Android 6.0 and later. It’s also available for iOS.

Is there a better alternative?

No. Mathway is a similar program with a different approach. It requires that you input information manually. It provides a solution and the steps to reach it. However, the lack of the camera feature makes it tedious in comparison.

Our take

Photomath is easy to use and has an appealing interface. The overall process to find solutions and their explanation makes it a top-notch choice for anyone in the Math field.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you need a program to assist you with different equations, this is a great choice.
