Point-and-Shoot App Solves Math Problems

There’s always a new app out there – this new one will do your math for you. All you have to do is aim your phone at it, scan the problem and receive your answer.


Even better, the PhotoMath app doesn’t only solve the problem – it maps out the steps to get the answer. Using real-time text recognition, the app solves mathematic expressions, fractions, decimals. powers, roots and linear equations. Developers are working on additional features to solve more complex equations in the near future.
