If like me you sometimes need a little help with mathematical calculations, you might be interested in a new smartphone application called the PhotoMath app that has been released this week.
Once loaded onto your smartphone the PhotoMath app allows you to simply take a photograph of a sum you would like to solve, and the application will provide you with the answer in real-time and the workings out to show you how it was solved.
As you can imagine I doubt whether teachers will be very happy with students carrying the application on their smartphone to school. However it will be the perfect tool for parents trying to teach and keep up with their children’s education. Check out the video below to see how the new PhotoMath app functions.
“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. Learn how to solve captured expressions and equations through ‘human like’ solving steps.”
Currently PhotoMath is capable of reading basic arithmetic expressions, fractions, powers and roots, and simple linear equations, and is currently available on iOS and Windows phones, but will be launching on Android smartphones sometime in 2015.
