For all those students struggling with solving math problems as well as parents checking their children's homework there are some great news! A completely new version of Photomath, one of the most popular educational apps in the world, is out now. Photomath is powered by MicroBlinks’ OCR technology which enables it to read and solve math using your smartphone camera - in real-time.
While Photomath 1.0 was recognized as a dream come true for students struggling with math, also being the number one iTunes app a couple of times, the new Photomath 2.0 offers improvements in all areas that made the original so great. The most significant new feature is the Math Keyboard which, for the first time, gives users the opportunity to type-in math problems. Now, in a situation where scanning isn’t possible, users can type in a math problem and receive the answer instantly on screen. In seconds, by either scanning or typing math problems, users can get detailed step-by-step solving instructions.
Above all, with the math keyboard users have the option of editing scanned mathematical problems and observing how the changes affect the solving process which greatly improves the process of learning. Photomath is first and foremost a learning tool and it's very important how well the app explains math problem solutions. That’s why we’ve completely refreshed the looks of Photomath, making it much more intuitive and easier to use. Apart from step-by-step solutions, we’ve included better explanations that often include additional information - for example which formula to use.
Apart from using Photomath for getting help and learning how to solve math problems, Photomath can also be used as a very powerful scientific calculator with features ranging from simple operations, through trigonometry, to algebra and calculus.
Moreover, the new version brings more educational value by solving more advanced mathematical expressions and is now localised to sixteen languages, improving the user experience for non-english speakers.
Photomath is still entirely free, but everyone that wants to support its growth can do so by becoming a “Photomath Supporter”.
With its improved functionality, Photomath 2.0 the essential app for every kid that struggles with math.
Photomath 2.0 is currently available for iOS. A new Android version is scheduled for late 1Q/2016.
