Best app yet for math

So I do sometimes cheat a little with homework but the only benefit is not knowing the answer on tests (no one knows I use it during that time too) I’m not rlly the best student when it comes to math/algebra but it is what it is. Sometimes I think tho that I’m not going to use some of these equations in my future life so might as well not learn about it now but that might take a turn on my later in life but that’s just me. Personally it’s still a great app so I have no dirt to throw on it but maybe some teachers do because it’s not rlly helping the “students” but this app also shows the process of how it gets its answers step by step. I haven’t got as far as degrees but you can also look up your book to get the answers too. I’m surprised you got this far but still it’s a cool app to use in your daily life if there’s a WiFi that you need to some bogus math problem, then would you be able to use this app. Kudos to u for getting this far! Also I hope I didn’t waste any of your time, I’m just writing a good review but it might need better punctuation but there’s a different app for that.

App Idea!!!!Want to make your app BETTER read THIS!!

Ok, this app is amazing it does wonders! BUTTTT I have to pay for it to teach me how to do it like Bruh. I thought y’all got money’s from ads? Instead of doing that I have an Idea for Y’all. Instead of making people pay to learn how to do it, but You should have a learn option but not like the one you have now, the learn option should be an option that teaches you how to do it but instead you actually have to solve problems and rather you take a quiz on it and retake it as much as you’d like! And up you can make people pay for it as it will be “premium”. You could also include flash cards, and games to help figure the math type out!! People would definitely be willing to pay for an app that teaches good!! What you have now dose t do much for teaching but instead you can make a new and improved and FUN way to learn math, then you can have them add points to the equation whenever you get a question right! And then add an avatar that you can customize but you will need coins to buy whatever you want, you can earn those coins by answering correctly math. Or at least getting 7/10 or more right!!! Again this would main your app wayyy Funner and teachers could use it as a way to teach and would pay for the program!! So adding that would equal MORE MONEY towards your company!!! Let me know if you guys use this idea, and thanks for reading 🥺❤️💕

Calm down prices!!!!!!

This used to me my go to app for help on math homework-mainly to check the steps or for help. I have used the app through my 6th/7th grade year to now. I’m now a junior in high school. They have taken off the option of viewing steps for free. I get the company having to pay expenses as it grows, but now that they have blocked solving steps, this has just become a normal calculator. The steps were the key to the success of the app. There could be other restrictions. Examples such as only blocking text books, video tutorials, having ads, word problems, etc. Now, I don’t know what to do because I don’t agree to paying this much. Annual or monthly fees seem excessive for the amount that they are asking. Especially, considering most of these users are children and young adults ranging from 10-24 years of age. Many people don’t have money or no extra to spend. If they do want to restrict this much then they shouldn’t have it for a monthly or annual fee. I’d probably spend $8 for the app over all, up front. This app is not much cooler than Minecraft which people barely spend $7.99 for. With the amount of people who have this app, if you only charge eight dollars for it all, then you would have just enough to pay expenses. The payments have blocked too many of the things that truly matter. It was a great app until they added all the extra fees.

Best Calculator app and some feedback idea’s

I’ve used it for about a year now in college and at work and I’ll say even the free version taught me more than my college professor. The subscription for plus seems really high and I can see it adding up, if it was a flat idk $50 dollars and a optional donation like Wikipedia has people would definitely do it for the plus without a doubt and donate. But $10 a month will start adding up real quick and like most people we don’t have the money for it. You guys are breathtaking and I hope you can put a handheld calculator version of this on the market because it would be worth every penny. I can’t begin to explain how much I appreciate your work into this. And please for the sake of the people who use this app don’t go into the add every second scheme. I enjoy and appreciate your work too much to see you guys ruin an app like this by putting adds In or if you have to for costs do only do it for explaining the steps. Thank you guys you all have mine and all the people who I recommended this to’s appreciation.🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

BEST APP EVER

This app gives me the answers to all my math questions. Even word word problems, this app solves my problems in seconds and all you have to do is download, take a photo, and boom you have your answers. No wonder why there were so many ratings on this app. I would give it 100 stars if I could. Best app ever. I never ever in my life have written a review on app before (because I’m to lazy to) but this app made me write one. I thought this app was a joke at first like I thought no way can a app answer your homework problems for you. But NO this app was no cap whatsoever. ( I rhymed haha) I was so shocked when this app worked. Lately I have been so tired and stressed out over my homework but this app literally does it for me. But I know this using this app is basically cheating, so I won’t use it all the time. But still, best app ever. I wrote this review right away after a couple of minutes after I installed this on my phone. Like I was in shock so I wrote a review as fast as I could. Everyone needs this app. I DEFINITELY recommend it!

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).

Losing its Charm

I’ve used photo math for years to help me with homework, although I have to admit it’s not been as helpful recently. This once was a 5 star app and has been a life saver when I missed school or didn’t understand the assignment. Not too long ago I would have taken a picture of a few problems and check “Steps” to learn how to do it, but it appears you now have to pay to check the steps. It will give you one or two steps and you have to have a membership with the app to get the rest of the steps. I truly think this is ridiculous because if I wanted a calculator I would just use the one already installed on my phone. Nobody is going to pay a membership they’re only going to use about 8 months a year. The app is quite useless and is simply a calculator taking up extra storage. I’d also like to mention that the app doesn’t even give me the right answer some of the time. Most of the time it’s great, but sometimes I’ll scan a problem and it will give me an answer to a problem in an entirely different book. I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max so it certainly isn’t because of my camera quality. I don’t think I will be using this app anymore.

It used to be free now it’s needlessly expensive

Why is this 10$ a month for what used to be free? You do understand most of your users are young people middle school - college and a lot of us can’t afford another monthly subscription in our budgets especially for something that used to be free. I like to get things broken down and explained on how they go the answer but now with this paywall I can’t do that anymore and it’s irritating because now all I have is the answer but no knowledge of how to do it. I understand if your developing new things with this app and this cost money but why charge for the old functionality why not just charge for the new features? Honestly even if someone wanted to use this to cheat and/or get a quick answer it’s still pointless because 90% of the time the teacher/professor wants to see how you go that answer so this app is useless even on that front too! If this app was a 1 time fee to download or was like a 0.99 - 5$ a month subscription or had different levels of payment for different features then I’d be ok with it and gladly support the devs but this app dose NOT justify 10 dollars a month it doesn’t provide enough value for 10$ a month lower your prices. And this would be the best app I ever downloaded.

very helpful

i downloaded photomath sometime last year while i was distance learning- i had trouble understanding what the teachers were saying at times (i was a 6th grader taking 7th grade math) and sometimes they moved at a quicker pace than i’d prefer. i kid you not photomath is probably the only reason i got an A+ all year in math, this year i was a bit worried because i was back in person this time taking 9th grade math- i’ve used this to check my homework after completing it, it’s very helpful that it doesn’t just tell you the answer it actually explains it. it however gets very frustrating when you don’t understand the explanation and you have to pay for the premium access to get a deeper lesson, but if you ask me the pros outweigh the cons significantly. whenever my friends tell me they are confused about our assignments i always recommend photomath, they don’t believe it works but it’s honestly their loss because this is probably the best use of storage i’ve ever used

Helpful but…

Honestly Photomath has helped me for a LOT math problems but it never told me how to do the equation so when the problem asked me to explain I was like ummm. So naturally I got Photomath plus. My original plan was to just get it free for the week and then cancel before I had to pay because $10 is a lot for math problems that explain everything in a different way than how we are learning it. Plus I only really needed it for that week when we were doing specific explanation problems in algebra. I started the subscription on Monday and then on Friday I canceled. Since the week starts on Sunday I still has one more day until I needed to pay. But Photomath charged me anyway and I didn’t find out until right now! That’s almost a month later! I don’t think this is fair at all I totally canceled the subscription before the free trial was over. Photomath crew if your seeing this I’m sorry I was never going to pay you ten dollars but this is not fair and I think I need a refund. Sorry if it seems like I’m being a total jerk I really do love your app just this little mistake has cost me ten dollars. I do love your app tho ❤️

Best I’ve calculator app I’ve used, but one issue

My math instructor has been out since October and we’ve been having multiple substitutes that can barely teach. I‘ve started to use PhotoMath again as I used it all the time to help me with homework, yet that being said I discovered that there is a feature new I didn’t notice. PhotoMath Plus. I was trying to learn how to do an equation when one of the steps needed me to pay for PhotoMath Plus to find out how to use it. This isn’t all that helpful when I, and maybe other people, want to learn how to do it correctly because this is probably the best way they can while they’re at home too. I had never seen this feature before and hoped that the developers wouldn’t add it in, but here we are. I’m not saying that it’s terrible and you should remove it, but it’s not the most effective way to get more money. Im conclusion PhotoMath is literally the best calculator app u have ever used, and I have recommended it to others and they enjoy it as much as I do. Five stars.

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.

Super duper helpful but could add a couple things

This app is so so helpful! Not only does it give me correct answers, but it explains the answers too even if you don’t have the premium feature! It can also help with any problem, not just simple problems. That has been my problem with other apps like this. The only two things I would change is that they need to have my textbooks. I have been using the same type of textbook for 3 years now. Every year I come back to photo math and they don’t have it. I have requested it but still nothing. My whole school uses this textbook(my school has 1200 kids in it) so I think plenty of other schools use it too. Also it doesn’t solve word problems. I had to get a different app to do that as well as photo math. It would be super super helpful if it had word problems answers since it doesn’t have my textbook! Overall, I love this app and sometimes it is useful and sometimes it is not but I know I will use this app for the rest of my school days

THANK YOU

Big thumbs up to this app!! It is very helpful with making problem solving simple! it not only helps you find the correct answer to a difficult problem but also shows you the steps to get there which is how I learn!! Thank you for making this app!!!!! I don’t use this app to get me out of doing assignment... I struggle with math and I will try to figure out step by step a problem and then will compare my steps with photo math and then will do a similar problem by using the steps photo math provided. Boomers will say lazy students only use this app and that is not true at all. I’m an honors student because I worked to get there. And this app has not carried me there. It has only gave me a stepping stone there. This app does not work for everything but is so helpful to a lot of things. If your using this app and Acing assignments but then bombing tests that’s your own fault. Use this app to learn... Thats the reason it was made.

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!!!!!!!!

Math photo changed a bit

So I’ve been using this app for many years and not a single ad comes up (mainly because I’m not at home) but even if I’m at home using my WiFi and using this app to help check my work there will never be an add but now there is which is kinda annoying I admit but this also tells me that the company who made this app now wants money, maybe not like other companies where they want loads of money for personal uses. But besides that I’m just outright confused on how will the photo math app learn to solve other equations when I can’t find an option that lets me tell suggestions on what kind of math problems it should answer for. Also many schools don’t use math textbooks and I’m wondering if there will be modules from mathematicsvisionproject because they have many math problems that this app can’t even solve. Also there is a paid version which helps you explaining how to do the work and having more textbooks, which I see now that this app is pay to explain which I don’t think it’s worth it. Like why would this company charge for the explanation and more textbooks, not ok to have that because they literally had it for free.

Photomath is amazing.

I used it to be smart everyday. I love this app. Even if your not right, Take a picture and BOOM the answer shows. I recommend Everyone like random students in the world to have this, what’s another thing good is the you could pick your language of how you speak this works for the entire world. It has every language in the world weather you speak different languages they got them. They also have Text books so you could see your text books that you have in class. The first thing that pops up is your grade level weather your in like kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, middle school, or high school, they have it for you. I recommend to not show your Teacher or Parents because they will be looking out for you in a test. And this is photomath where all learning comes to a place like home.

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.

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.
