Great for Homework
Baruch Wilson on 2/19/2018
You feeling lazy well nothing like a great app would help with that this is an easier way to calculate math than a calculator when you have your own camera this already puts in the answer and the equation and EVEN SHOWS HOW TO GET IT I’m just here to say that this is a great way to do things faster. (it’s a good app👏👍)
Omg this is amazing
Trenton Hardman on 2/19/2018
Hi I just found out about this app, it’s not a cheat sheet, it helps me understand the math and what’s going on. It can show you a graph, but they should add a number line. If enyone sees this that made this app, you are amazing and you just be you. Good job, you saved me from being confused.💜💜💜I hope you keep expanding this app.🙃☺️

I get that the app is new but it can't solve the level of math I am doing. An update is needed for sure
Love it

Ik that is can cheet but it teaches u at the same time u just swipe then it showed work love it
Jalena🦋 on 2/19/2018
This is a really good app you can literally find ur answers and have the app explain to you how to find the answer👍
dad of four. on 2/19/2018
This app provides clear and easy to explain steps for solving mathematical equations/problems. It came in super helpful when I was walking one of my kids through the world of fractions. It provided a clear visual while I explained the steps! Thanks for providing this great resource!
Love it

This can’t be real.
NoellaBean on 2/18/2018
This doesn’t make any sense. It’s too good to be true. It works perfectly... and is 100% free?!? I don’t understand. What is the catch? I don’t usually write reviews, but this app deserves 5 stars. My life is saved... and I think I’m going to pass algebra after all.
lifesaver (+ suggestions)
Emma2002 on 2/18/2018
undoubtedly the best app on my phone. THIS IS NOT CHEATING! the developers have really taken all precautions to show just how useful this app is at HELPING with homework. this app simply ensures that when you do your homework, you’re doing the steps correctly and getting the right answer. often, I use the app to check my homework as opposed to using it at the first blink of confusion (as the naysayers might complain). by reviewing the problem step-by-step, I can find where I went wrong in my thought process (or if I just made a simple mathematical error!) and I can get back on the right track. by looking at the step-by-step explanations, I understand concepts much better. the app is slightly lacking in the explanation department—sometimes the wording is a little confusing, but I usually get the idea. I especially have benefitted from the inclusion of automatically graphing when possible. HOWEVER: sometimes it will graph with the x-axis as the vertical axis, and the y-axis as the horizontal axis, which then confuses me and makes me think the app is wrong. I wish it would just always stay with a horizontal x-axis and vertical y-axis (or just make it more obvious when the graph switches). it makes sense that the app can’t do word problems: but I can easily put word problems into their most complex number problem and then solve from there. I have to admit that as you go up in school, the app slightly loses usefulness, as more problems approach the “Sorry! We can’t solve this yet” point. but, especially for younger kids in elementary or middle school, the app has great prospects and immense usefulness. all around amazing app! 4 stars :) I HOPE THIS STAYS FREE FOREVER! I know in today’s world that will probably be difficult to do, but I don’t know what I’d do if some features became paid only. I appreciate the honest good meaning in this app. way to go, developers!

Jess_R18 on 2/17/2018

Jackkris on 2/16/2018
saves lives only reason im not failing alegbra 2 tbh
Extremely helpful
Algebraaaic on 2/15/2018
So far it hasn’t let me down, not only does this app give you the answer but it also explains the step, CLEARLY!!! I understand how to do it when you look at the step and if you don’t know what they did, you can expand the step to detail and it’ll explain. It doesn’t do word problems which I can understand why but it’s cool. I love it so far and it’s a very helpful source as well!
I can’t math
Yvng_VVS on 2/15/2018
And this is amazing it helps me do the math instantly it is the best app in the world after”math” of all this is to get the amazingly beautiful app that I love love love so so much much much ✅😂💯💯💯💯
so good
i reviews on 2/15/2018
Seeing the answers to homework problems and all the steps laid out like that helps me so much more than struggling with one problem for half an hour. It gives me great examples to use for other similar problems. This is so helpful if my teacher doesn’t give us any examples on a type of problem. PhotoMath is only improving- I remember when it couldn’t read handwriting or let you manually punch in the equation, and now it’s so much more advanced. And it’s free!
Seannynapper123 on 2/15/2018
Thanks guys i dont know how you guys do this but you are phenomonal thanks for helping me figure things out when i need to yall are lifesavers
Zora291 on 2/15/2018
My only complaint is that it solves problems In a pretty advanced way, the way I’m learning algebra is way different than the way this app explains how to solve things, still, 5 stars for how amazing this app is
Great app
Northatl on 2/15/2018
It gives you step by step math. It works out the problem gives you a graph and gives you the answer. It’s simple and easy to use. It can almost always pick up the numbers. So what are you waiting for? You have to get it!!!!
Photomath is good but...
JKCham on 2/15/2018
It is helpful but it tempts you to cheat plus it’s explanations are often times confusing
Very Very Good;):) on 2/15/2018
Very Good:)
It's ok😒
Mdickie Rocks on 2/15/2018
It's ok but it is slow to give answers and when it does it gives ones I didn't even scan I wish it would be simpler to tell me how to solve it when I scan and it takes for ever to adjust my camera or fix the zoom but it's okay of an app it helps with homework and stuff this is probley not gonna happen but I wish it could solve word problems and I. Wish when I scanned it didn't have to always give me the simplified version of the problem but that's it it's okay 😐
Queen micha on 2/15/2018
Great application
Some review
Pllfoto on 2/15/2018
It is very useful
It Works!!!!
*Purplegirl57* on 2/15/2018
OMG!! So I never write reviews on anything but I’m writing this one now because I feel as if people underestimate the app. I had downloaded this app because of a friend and I didn’t know if it would actually work but when I tried it on my regents homework (algebra) it worked and I was so surprised it saved me hours of time and I was able to even go to the cinema afterwards, and the app doesn’t just give you the answer if you click the little arrow it shows how to actually do the problem yourself so it’s a tutor in a way too because of this app I now know how to solve algebraic equations by myself but I still use this app to check my work so I would definitely recommend this app to all even adults can use it!!!
Great App
Zoiloid1 on 2/15/2018
Photomath is a really good app. It helps me with every math problem I need help on. It’s quick simple and easy to use. The developers did a really nice job 10/10 in my book
Very Helpful
yagirl💗🤪 on 2/14/2018
When u are stuck on a problem and u need help just use this app it really helps and it also gives u the work to show you how to do it. It doesn’t work on word problem but it is still very helpful. It helped me a lot in school because of this app I was able to do better in math💗💗💗💗 THANKS PHOTOMATH 💗
Best Math App!
EuniceZ27 on 2/14/2018
So helpful - using to help my daughter with her math. I haven’t done middle school math since I was in middle school myself, so this helps me to help my daughter.
Two crazy boys on 2/14/2018
I don’t have answers in my packets but I just used photo math and it showed me exactly how to work the problems out!
It can’t do imaginary number equations... still great app though!!!
It's ya boy lil penis on 2/14/2018
This is an all round amazing app. It has the ability to do everything math equation you show it. But there is one flaw, it is unable to complete imaginary number equations. An imaginary number is a complex number that can be written as a real numb multiplied by the imaginary unit , which is defined by its property i2= −1. The square of an imaginary number bi is −b2. For example, 5i is an imaginary number, and its square is −25. Zero is considered to be both real and imaginary. If they could create an option to show a different solution. This is a great app though, keep up the good work and updates to improve!!!
It’s amazing
Cstackz901 on 2/14/2018
It can do everything!😱🔥
Best App Ever!
ZaynabB on 2/14/2018
I’m a college student and I’m college you don’t always have one on one teaching with the professor so if I don’t understand something this app helps me understand and also check my work.
Awesome Math Utility
duggg10322 on 2/14/2018
Gives equations in differ forms, solutions and explanations for them, roots, visual graph representations, intercepts and all. Couldn’t have created a more helpful app.
Photo math
Danielahedz on 2/14/2018
This has really helped me on my homework. I recommend this app for people who have a teacher that doesn’t explain the math to them good. These steps are very helpful!
lightningboy06 on 2/14/2018
Extremely helpful just wish it could detectv because you have to hold it till it fixes
alectenis on 2/14/2018
this helps me on my hw alottttt thanks
Amazing App, just something wrong
Peepers2004 on 2/14/2018
Great app, I swear I’ve been looking for this all my life. The camera itself works like a charm! Super great, I love how it can read my really crappy handwriting! I just wish it could detect word problems because for me personally those are tricky. The app is a true wonder, but that’s my only suggestion! Peace ✌🏽
