    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!

    Mathway has saved my skin more times than I can count. There are several calculator settings, ranging over all forms of mathematics, a camera function, and easy to use input, that includes all the functions and characters one needs in their pursuit. I havent run into any questions pathway couldn't solve, and the step by step really helps when you just cant seem to grasp the concept. I highly reccomend this app!!

    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 excellent! It really helps me with math. It gives you the answers for free. It doesn't only show you the work for the answers if you pay, you can see the work if you just watch a short ad. This might be a turn off for some, but in my opinion, it's fair because it's very helpful. The app is not glitchy, it works well, and doesn't show ads unless to want to see the work. I know it sounds like I'M advertising it but I really do recommend it. It works very well!

    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!

  • 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.

  • The New Update is Terrible Mar 18, 2020

    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.

  • Love it but no support Apr 12, 2019

    By Catrina f
    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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • It needs some work.. Mar 28, 2020

    By ~Otter
    My first experience with Mathway was great! I could check my work, get help on problems, and more! Until I downloaded the app. I realized, it’s not everything it looks to be. I like the idea of being able to take a photo of the work, but why not allow me to insert a photo? Most school work is online now, and if I could just take a screenshot and insert my photo, it would be so much easier! Another thing, is the ability to copy and paste. If ONLY I could. Simply copy my math problem, paste it into mathway, and hit enter! But no. I have to sit there and type out even and entire paragraph of a word problem sometimes. And it’s a pain. Yes! It gets the job done! But there’s a LOT of improvements that could be made. Please take this into consideration.

  • It works but in some cases there are better options Feb 28, 2020

    By the eh man22
    Now I got this app a while back and have been using it for a while. But my math teacher wants work done so in that case where I needed an app for easy math but had to do work this one didn’t do that. It shows you the answer and you can change how the problem is answered but to show the work you need to fork over 10 bucks a month which is a scam. One of the best functions is the camera scanning and it’s how I used the app most of the time but I got fed up with it and looked for a better app and found one that lets you take the photo choose the way to solve it and it shows the work for free (for those wondering it’s an app called Photomath). So instead of getting this get photomath it’s easier and more efficient
