London-based software developer Microblink introduces PhotoMath, a new app that solves math problems for you using the camera on your smartphone.
At this stage it can solve basic arithmetic, fractions, decimals, powers, roots, linear equations and functions like log, exp, sin, cos. It can recognize printed characters only, not handwritten text. The app doesn’t solve word problems, geometry, or calculus.
Rather than help students cheat, this app acts like a step-by-step guide to show how the answer can be found.
Instant results: PhotoMath reads and solves mathematical expressions by using the camera of your mobile device in real time. It makes math easy and simple by educating users how to solve math problems.
Step by step solving: Learn how to solve captured expressions and equations through ‘human like’ solving steps.
