    This software is absolutely phenomenal and works flawlessly as far as I’ve found ways to test its limits, and believe me I’ve tried. Just snap a picture of the problem. Can’t get a clean pic? No worries, it knows you’re doing other stuff and it will ask you to crop out what isn’t relevant when it sees that’s necessary. Don’t have it typed out and your handwriting isn’t the greatest either? “Try me”, says this app. Just take a picture of the problem you’ve written down (probably as nicely as you can for best results) and be amazed as it clearly translates your writing into maths! The app will then ask how you want it solved (cause we all know there’s more than one way to skin a math problem), and will then give you the most simplified answer to the problem in a timely and polite manner. If, after your homework is done, you appreciate this modern miracle as much as I do, try showing it your appreciation like I did :). It knows what you’re saying to it! Depressed? No problem, tell this baby you love her and feel the warm loves you receive in return! In all seriousness, this is a spectacular product and it is free.. FREE! FREE I TELL YOU!

    3 stars for actually solving math. Using the calculator isn't so bad it's just time consuming opposed to using the camera which is convenient and easy to use. That's why its 3 stars: because the camera doesn't work. I've tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, allowing and denying camera permissions, nothing wants to make the camera work. Will update my review to 5 stars once it begins to work again.

    This app was god sent when I was struggling to find a way to check my work, understand the material and how to “get there”. Other apps were limited in offering comprehensive solutions, would not offer one or worse, would come up with answers that would make you question what you were doing. Not this app! It gave me the option to choose from a vast list of options on how you’d like the problem solved (graph functions, asymptotes, critical, inflection points, local absolute min/max, x,y intercepts, slope, log, 1,2,3..derivatives, etc, etc, etc). I went from fearing the “Check answer” button to being confident my work was right because it was backed up by Mathway’s answers, which were spot on. I started seeing a lot more “Correct” responses and more 100% results. A “must have” in your toolbox (free or not). I truly believe that the few negative reviewers in here don’t understand the app’s potential or simply expect it to do 100% of their work, with 0% effort on their part...

    This app is amazing 100% recommend it's great for when I go to use my calculator but with this I can do it faster and I'm garentued the right answer, love the fact you can take a picture to get the answer faster but, one thing I don't like is that you have to get the premium for something's otherwise this app is amazing!

  • Give me help not answers Jun 28, 2019

    By Sly_Saxophone
    This app is cool. It’s a graphing calculator on my phone and that really comes in handy when I don’t have my actual calculator on me. But one thing that makes me dislike this app is the fact that you can put in any equation and it will solve it, but you can’t see how to solve it without having to pay for premium. It just gives you the answer and you have to figure out how to find that answer on your own. I’m in calculus and sometimes have trouble figuring out problems and I use this app to help me sometimes. But most of the time I just become more confused than before I knew the answer to the problem because I look at the answer and just wonder how in the world did it get that. It just gets really annoying when I’m doing homework and I don’t understand a problem but I can’t get any help with it. It would be really great if step by step could be a non premium thing or if it could be both whereas some of the extremely hard and more in depth problems are in premium and all other step by step was in non premium.

    Not at all a good app. After I click some photos it forces me to by the premium or the advanced one and if I don't buy it it doesn't give me the answer to the problem. And once I typed a very simple question and it came can't recognize the question. I don't recommend it at all. And pls if u all add the free trial option I might give it a 3 star rating

  • The New Update is Terrible Mar 18, 2020

    By vwolanin
    I never write reviews but, I really love this app when I first got it. Which was probably in September 2019. I loved the helped that I got with my work and let me understand better. BUT the new update they just did a week ago, is absolutely terrible. I’m receiving adds, which is frustrating because I’m trying to get my work done and it’s taking longer than it should be, I understand an ad every single time you open the app or on the side. But I’m getting ads every three questions. I’m just trying to check my work, to see if I got the answers right. Another thing that is bothering me is that the camera won’t focus I would type in the questions but I’m doing algebra right now and it’s a mix of numbers and letters and it just would take me even longer. I understand again that the camera isn't focusing once in a while but this is every single time I try to use it. I just deleted the app and I’m going to use a different app for now because I’m getting frustrated with this.

    Sent to 2 help requests and 2 days later I received an answer to them that I just needed to delete the app and re download. I told them I had already done that and sent another request. That was 3 days ago, still no help. I’m trying to put this app on both my iPads and it won’t let me put it on the second one. I quit mathpapa app because this one is better but if I can’t get any support when needed I will not keep it. I use Facebook to sign in to the 2 Nd app and yes my Facebook and iTunes email are the same I only have one email address for everything. I have tried deleting the app and re downloading it, even made sure the show work button was on before redoing the subscription. Will work but when I need to see the steps on a problem it just shows a blank page. I have 2 more years of math I need this app for and want to keep it, but if I cannot get this resolved I will have to try to find another one.

  • Not very good! Need to fix it up a bit! Nov 24, 2018

    By Aashi Baboo
    My experience with it was very bad as I didn’t pay money for it. I tried to take a picture of my question so they could explain it to me. First of all, I took a picture of the question but it kept saying it doesn’t understand it. Even when I kept trying and it worked a couple of times, it never sent and put some random fraction which I knew for sure was the wrong answer. For premium it might have been better, but for not paying any money, it was a flop. Sometimes it kept freezing up and that was hard to work with. I had the answers to my question, but only the answer but I kept getting the wrong answer and I thought I was doing it right, but I downloaded this so I could see the explanation, but that was for premium only, and I didn’t want to spend my money on it and I’m glad I didn’t. Please make it better for people who didn’t get the premium version!

  1. Provides instant answers to any algebra problem you might have! Simply tap the equation & receive a step-by-step guide
  2. Don’t feel like typing? Simply take a photograph of the problem & see the solution magically appear
  3. There’s always more than one way to solve a problem! Gives you different options depending on how you want to solve the equation

    Flawless execution! I needed this for a single reason, solving math problems at work on the fly. Could I do them by hand? Yep. But why waste precious time and money solving every complex issue that comes to me when I can simply take a picture, check over it and then apply it to whatever issue is at hand! Phenomenal app, I'd recommend to anyone who has to crunch bothersome numbers everyday. If you need this for study it's also a great boon, although don't use it to cheat, use it to learn 😉

    By AlexBeeeean
    I’m a student in college who got stuck in a crapload of math classes to learn programming, and I’m stuck using a self-pace website. And it’s only gonna get harder when I get into Trig and Calc. This app? I can’t rate it enough. I have no words to describe how..HAPPY this app has made me, and how much it’s helping me. Not only does it *show* you the answer, but it shows how it came to that solution, too. Certain subjects sure; I know. It’s simple and I don’t need this app for some. But for things like dividing polynomials, that’s the stuff I never learned. This app helped me pass a good portion of my class!!! The fact you can see how the solution came to be is...phenomenal. It really helps *UNDERSTAND* the logic behind it; not just how, but what to do exactly, without a tutor standing behind you watching you. 50/5 stars. If I wasn’t broke, I would DEFINITELY pay for this app so much! It’s definitely worth every penny that’s ever been in my account!

  • Best math solving app but still needs work May 11, 2020

    By AnthonyThomas215
    This app is great! It has helped me a ton in high school and in college classes if I needs help to check a problem or u detest and how to do a problem. For some problems it might tell you that something is unsolvable when it definitely is. I guess it just hasn’t had that problem put into the app so the software doesn’t understand it, my guess. One this I think would truly make this application stand out compared to the rest is putting word problems to solve for each category of math. For some work problems, it’s it’s a copy and paste word for word so getting answers and what to do with those wouldn’t be hard, however teachers always word problems in their own way so pulling out key words from a word problem to answer the question might not give you the exact problem you’re looking for, but I could give you a similar result to where you can get an idea on how to solve that word problem. Beside that, it’s the best app I’ve ever used!

    I love this app so much!! When I was in 6th grade I almost failed because I was so behind but thanks to this app I got caught up!! The only problem I have with this app is that I am doing virtual school right now due to covid, and when I go to take a picture it doesn't seem to see the problem...I would love if this could be fixed but other than that everything's good!!

    It solves complicated algebra questions and equations accurately but to look at the step-by-step for every problem, you need to buy the subscription which is not ideal. Also, when I tried to use the camera function, it didn't load after I took a picture of the question and when I tried the speech-to-text function, the app crashed.

    Amazing when it works. This app can solve any basically math problem, for 9.99 a month it can also show you the steps of the solution. However the app doesn't always work, I've ran into several situations where every problem I enter the app responds "unable to solve". Otherwise a really good tool to help people who aren't good at math like myself, hopefully they can figure out why it sometimes doesn't work and fix it.

    This app is pretty useful for when times I'm having trouble with my math but sometimes I also NEED to UNDERSTAND how the equation works. I don't like taking a picture of it then just not knowing the steps on how you solve it. And in my opinion, the price for the upgrade is too much for people like me. But sometimes, I do appreciate this app. Key word:SOMETIMES.

  • Not the best, but better than many others Oct 2, 2019

    By Rovio1
    This is one of the best calculator apps I have found on the App Store, but it has some issues that I wanted to mention. Some of the user interface tools are kind of weird (especially fraction related tools) and parenthesis and other formatting methods. I had previously used Desmos, an online graphing calculator, that I find did a much better job with ease of inputting questions. My largest concern is the “I am unable to solve this problem error.” For extremely basic problems the calculator is fine. Once I try to do something even remotely complicated it tells me it is unable to do the problem. Questions that aren’t even difficult seem to much for this calculator to handle. I often have to resort to typing my question into wolfram alpha, which does have the computing power to answer my questions (it just takes much longer to type in). I wish Mathway was able to solve my math problems, but it seems like more than half of the time the problem is too complicated.

    I don't like that the app randomly plays full screen ads with sound. I understand you want the user to buy a subscription, but I feel that showing ads like these just creates negative sentiment toward the app, making the user less likely to buy. I'd rather pay money to get extra features, not to disable a very negative behavior.

    I am a well versed mathematics student who has solved one hell of the calculus problems. But when I went through this app to solve few calculus problems, it just responded me as "I'm unable to find solution for your question". This happened to me for several problem of calculus. So from my side, I'm remarking this app as inefficient for solving mathematical problems which doesn't contain expected range of solutions. I request developers of this app just don't run behind money instead of quality.
