    Photomath Review

    This app helps me everyday with my homework and it makes me understand how to do it, also I don’t just copy the answer it gives me. I try first by myself without the app for about 10 times then If I don’t get it any of the times, I scan the problem and then I know how to do it so the next time I have a question similar to that I know how to do it. It’s really helpful and it helps me improve my math in school because it is really hard for me to focus during math class because I have ADHD and I get distracted really easily. It also improved my math a lot and I’m not good at math so I scan the problem then the next time I have a similar problem at least I know how to do it. Also I know that the developers made this app for educational purposes for everybody all over the world. Even parents struggle and they need this app to help them sometimes. So this probably the best app I’ve gotten and my friend recommended it for me. It also has helped me a lot the past year and this year. Thanks to developers for making this app or else I wouldn’t have even understand my math problems that much.

    I have no words

    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

    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....

    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

    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!!!!!!!!

    The developers deserve fame and fortune

    This is the first review I have ever written. I felt obligated to write it because of how great this app is. I want to respond to the notion that this is an app primarily used as an easy way out in high school math classes. It is so much more. I am a researcher in an area that requires a lot of math to understand. I have a deep understanding of how to use math but had a poor education in lower level mathematics. This map is an enormously helpful tool for professionals to skip over the tedious algebraic processes and focus on the meaningful applications and theories. It is a tool to overcome the failings of your 8th grade teacher, and let you focus on the problem at hand. This is the kind of meaningful innovation the world needs more of. And the developers choice to release it as a free app is nothing less than benevolent. This app deserves more attention than it has recieved. Seriously, thank you for making this.

    Hey photomath users and developers

    This is a wonderful app. It’s nice to use after finishing homework and checking to see if I didn’t make any mistakes. This app other than Mathway, are big life savers for high school. Although the app seemed to be working fine, after an update, which I like in some cases has this terrible glitch on the camera. IT WILL NOT FOCUS!!!! 🙄. This is very frustrating because I’ll spend like 10 min trying to get it to focus because it can’t see it. I would really ask if this be fixed. I’ve also did some test, it’s not my phone camera cause I have no problem on the regular camera. I’ve also did many things like make the little scanning rectangle bigger instead of small, further away than close up and it doesn’t help. The only thing that SOMETIMES works is lifting it up at a object far away then very slowly bring it back to the paper. Once again, great app, but please developers, please fix this problem Thanks and have a wonderful day.

    Great app

    I love this app a lot it has helped me so much. But I have a few issues that I would like to be fixed. I really wish that it had more solutions and different methods. It doesn’t have everything for classes like pre-cal, calculus, or trig. It has most of the course work but some things just aren’t there. And sometimes it’s really frustrating. Also the app something likes to cut out my music, and doesn’t like to work when I’m listening to music. If I have music playing and then go into the app it will cut it out and pause it. Or if I already have it open but I go to different app and then go back to it by double clicking my home button, and then it will pause my music. And if I had previously had the flash on, and then go back into the app it will just not work completely. So then when both of these things happen I’ll have to close the app, and open it again. Sometimes this will happen multiple times while I’m using it.

    Best math app by far

    I’ve been using this app for a while for help the teachers seemed to never be able to give me because either they were bad at explaining or didn’t know what exactly they were teaching. It doesn’t just only give you the answers, which is cool, it’s always helped me figured out exactly what I’m supposed to be doing and how to do it step by step. However recently I’ve come back to it because school started up again and I got frustrated that you now have to pay to see the steps just like many other math apps. I lived for the fact it was totally free and was probably my favorite of app of all time for school. Now it’s just a little irritating that I can’t see the step by step explanations anymore, but I only see the answer. I still am in love with the app though, just a little bummed out at the fact that I now have to pay for it, and I would pay for it but I’m a student so that doesn’t really work out too well.

    Lifesaver! Definitely recommend!

    This app has saved my life billions of times and made math a lot easier for me. I’m not saying this because it’s good for cheating, but because it tells u the answer and work for that problem. The feedback is unbelievably fast and is now one of my top used apps. I would choose PhotoMath over calculator because it’s just so simple and easy and u can just take a photo and it will tell u the answer and work and it’s just AMAZING! This makes my math homework so much faster because if there is one problem I can’t solve, it delays my homework to another hour. This gives me the work and it’s so easy to understand. This app is better than all those other apps so definitely think of this one! I know this review is very long, but it’s just to tell you that this is an app you would wanna download! If I could rate this more, I would say 100 stars! LOVE THIS!😍😍😍

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    A million years ago when I was in college, I spent hours and hours teaching myself calculus by working the odd problems whose solutions appeared in the back of the book and then reverse engineering them to figure out how to work that type of problem. This allows me to do the same things to assist my son with his more difficult Algebra problem and to ensure he is working it correctly and if not, on which step he made a mistake. We use the “show other methods” button quite frequently to learn to work the problem in the way the teacher wants it worked. Brilliant idea and I am thrilled it will even let you neatly write the math problem and it can still read your handwriting to allow you to look for the solution. It really helps with word problems that your kid can set up but struggles to work or wants to check.

    I love this

    I don’t usually write reviews. But i want to first off say that I love math ,but there are some problems that are just too hard for me to understand or the ones i know how to do but it is just too time taking for me. I want to say this app is completely amazing. I first tried “SnapCalc” first because I saw it on an ad, but it didn’t last long since I had to pay monthly for it after a few problems, which i obviously was not going to do. The solutions it showed were confusing anyways. This app is SO MUCH BETTER, it has helped me on things I don’t understand and I can learn my mistakes in minutes and I am in love with it. The best part about it is that it is FREE, completely. Since the time I’ve been using it, I don’t recall seeing an ad (though I wouldn’t mind seeing one). I just want to say thank you and I’ll definitely being using this app for life.

    Great app. Use it as a supplement to learn.

    Normally don’t write reviews and I was skeptical using this app. I’m getting back into college taking low level math but some things I understandably get stuck on. While I’m taking an online class, it’s hours before the professor gets back to us. I do the online video lecture then do the homework. I don’t use this program unless I’m absolutely stuck and again I just don’t get the answer to plug it in; I read and write out the steps in the solution. It’s like having the professor guiding me through the problems I have without having to wait all day for a response. I’m sure it will help me on my future tests. Wish I found it earlier when I failed my first test this semester. I was going to pay for an ad free version or in app purchase that sent a couple bucks to the developer but I don’t see the option.

    Amazing

    This app is very handy, and convenient. In school, I usually have tons of math worksheets that I have to do. I know how to solve all of it though, and I can probably get it done..... if I wasted 5 hours of my life! Thanks to Photomath, I can get work done quickly while being taught the steps. This app is not only a time saver, but has really taught me math better than my own teacher in some cases surprisingly! With that said, there are also a few problems. 1. There are some things I've tried that it couldn't solve. I know it can't solve EVERYTHING, BUT, it can solve a whole lot, so I'm not that mad. 2. It often mistakes an "s" for a 5, and a "g" for a 9, which gets on my nerves when it happens. I know though that as this app progresses even more, it'll become more and more accurate so I am overall pleased with this app. -Miles

    Fine, but one aggravating problem!!

    Let me start by saying that this is a great app. I’m in grade 8 and in honors math. For the first quarter, I got the worst grades I’ve gotten in my whole life! I just didn’t get it. Now, I have a tutor and that’s been helping me tremendously. On nights when my tutor doesn’t come and I have hw, I can use this app to help me do it. It gives a great explanation that I can apply towards the rest of my assignment. The one HUGE problem, however, is that it never focuses!!! I have to wait a whole two minutes for the thing to focus, if I’m lucky, or just have to type it into the calculator. My solution (now, I’m no app developer but I think this would work) is to have that little feature where you can click on the screen to get it to focus. I have an iPhone 6s so I’m pretty sure that has the autofocus feature but it still doesn’t work. Please do something about this!!
