What is Photomath?
A large number of students have a fear of math, especially when they do not have the right tools for solving them. Photomath makes mathematics less tasking for school students and other users. The great thing about this app is that it's suitable for both math experts and those who don't understand it. It reduces math problems to their simpler forms, to make it easier to grasp.
How does Photomath work?
This mobile app is also called a camera calculator. It uses your phone camera to identify mathematical problems and displays a detailed solution on your screen. All you have to do is take a photograph of your math problem while the app provides a step-by-step solution. Where the app is unable to solve the problem, you can connect to a qualified tutor, free of charge.
This free app can solve both simple arithmetic and advanced mathematical problems. Called the smartest camera calculator, it can handle over 250 math functions. The app is suited for various mathematical equations, including additions, subtraction, multiplication, division, algebra, polynomials, and many others.
For handwritten questions that are presently not supported by the free app, users will access a math tutor who is available 24/7. Every user is entitled to 15 minutes of free tutoring upon downloading the app.
Teaching kids math
We cannot overemphasize the importance of maths in our present age. This app simplifies complex equations and is understandable by both old and younger users. Photomath helps parents assist their kids when they experience math anxiety. It's great for teachers also, as it improves teaching methods and advocates student learning and overall performance.
Your kids won't need to be scared of mathematics anymore. Photomath gives your children the opportunity to understand basic arithmetic before they even begin schooling. With photomath, students could also prepare ahead for maths competitions or quizzes through which they could win wonderful prizes.
There's a premium version of the app called the Photomath plus. Here, users have access to upgraded features, including explanations for mathematical problems, including word problems and equations. Users can choose between monthly or yearly subscription plans, which they can purchase from the app.

Top Pcmac Reviews
I have no words
By belEvangeline (Pcmac user)
Ooooooooooo my... what is happening... my mom always told me that one day I would be good at math. I told her, “mom, the day I become good at math, pigs will fly.” I think pigs just flew. I read tons of reviews, all with five stars, saying this app saved lives. To test it, I wrote 2+2 in a shimmery purple jell pen on the back of my hand in the dark (not pitch black but lights off blinds closed 8:00 in the morning) and it was like oh yeah two plus two is four voilaaaa!!!!! Like woah... either I died or the world was enchanted with a magical spell cuz I am actually looking forward to doing my homework on Monday. My integrated math textbook is full of really hard word problems and ik the app can’t do word problems, but easy as pie I can write down a number problem for those word problems and this app will save me hours that I could be spending on other homework and sleep. Woah... also it’s FREE??????!!!! Before I did not get math and I had to get my older sister to tutor me but she will be off to college soon and I will be left tutorless. It’s true... this app saves lives.
Amazing app, but I can’t use it anymore
By alejandrikiti (Pcmac user)
I’ve been using this app for 2+ years already and it is truly a life saver. I use it mostly for checking if my home work is correct and it is amazing. Explains everything that happened in the equation in an easy to understand manner. I also very much like the app’s appearance for some reason, it’s very clean and elegant. All of this being said, after all of this time enjoying it I cannot use it anymore. This being because my phone’s camera broke. When it first broke, the app kept working fine. I could still use the calculator that is in the app, but I had to delete the app for some time because I needed space on my phone. When school started once again I downloaded it and the app won’t even let me use the calculator because my camera isn’t compatible. Needless to say I regret deleting it, I don’t understand why it doesn’t work now when it did before and my camera wasn’t working. I really wish you could use the app even if your camera wasn’t working, or at least make it so you can use the frontal camera on your phone, I have seen the frontal camera support in other math apps (none of them are as good as this one though).
Great app but....
By terrible ay math (Pcmac user)
I got this app because I was struggling in math and needed to do my homework. I downloaded this app and it seemed pretty great. I copied down all the and the answer and moved on. I didn’t even bother trying to learn it. One I went to school and when math time came around it didn’t go so good. I got all of them right but apparently I didn’t do my work right. My teacher gave a whole speech about how she was aware of the things that we can use to “cheat” and she would catch anyone who did it. I would talk about using the app among my group but I would try not to say it really loud. I think she heard me and she also said that the work was not the way we did it in class. She gave me a 0 on all the homework assignments that she could tell that I’ve used this app. She said that she would of gave me a detention but I was honest with her about using it. I think this app should show different ways of doing the problems. And not just for coping but for learning the way that our school wants us to learn.
This app saved my life
By Pinguecula (Pcmac user)
IXL. This app helped me conquer the most treacherous challenge I could face. IXL. It all started one day when I came home from school and was like how am I gonna do this IXL. Just then my friend texted me and was like hey what is the IXL. And I told her and I was like I'm stressing from all this IXL. So then she suggested Photomath. After that my whole life changed. An IXL that would usually take me two hours only took me ten minutes. I am so thankful. Whoever is reading this just know whoever created this app should earn an award, they are a genius. So if your ever skeptical about your math, or your having trouble just go to Photomath. And its not cheating either, it actually explains the problem step by step to help you, if cheating feels really uncomfortable for you. I already know how to do the curriculum and our teacher gives us hard IXLs because we are honors and she thinks we can handle it. But each of those problems take like an hour to work out. THANK YOU PHOTOMATH YOU SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!
