The smartest camera calculator
If you study maths and want a reliable check of answers to maths problems download the PhotoMath app for Android. This free app is a useful tool for independent students who like to verify answers are correct prior to handing them in to tutors.
The Automath Photo Calculator tool works when you take a photo of your maths problem and workings out by providing a verified step by step solution to your mathematics question.
If the math calculator cannot work out your maths problem the question will be sent to a qualified tutor who will get in touch with you to provide the answer.
You don't need Internet access to use Photomath and will discover the automatic calculator can provide answers to simple maths questions, as well as advanced level mathematics problems. The app can handle more than 250 different mathematics functions and responses to your photo problem are given quickly.
The app supports a number of mathematics calculations, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square roots, fractions, inequalities, polynomials and algebra. At this moment in time the app does not support handwritten questions and answers to problems, however this will be addressed by upgrades to the mathematics app.
You will find the app easy to navigate with clear instructions on screen and text message access to the tutor service, which can also provide assistance with handwritten questions. You will also be provided with access to a pocket maths tutor 24/7, with the first question you ask being answered for free. You are also entitled to 15 minutes of free, live maths tutoring when you download the app.
When you use the app for the first time it will take some while to process the question because a number of data files will need to be copied, however this will not be an ongoing process when you use the app in the future.
The free PhotoMath app is available for Android 2.3.3 and above and has a size of 31M. You can make in app purchases from within the application up to a maximum cost of £116.29 per item.
