- Best I’ve calculator app I’ve used, but one issue

My math instructor has been out since October and we’ve been having multiple substitutes that can barely teach. I‘ve started to use PhotoMath again as I used it all the time to help me with homework, yet that being said I discovered that there is a feature new I didn’t notice. PhotoMath Plus. I was trying to learn how to do an equation when one of the steps needed me to pay for PhotoMath Plus to find out how to use it. This isn’t all that helpful when I, and maybe other people, want to learn how to do it correctly because this is probably the best way they can while they’re at home too. I had never seen this feature before and hoped that the developers wouldn’t add it in, but here we are. I’m not saying that it’s terrible and you should remove it, but it’s not the most effective way to get more money. Im conclusion PhotoMath is literally the best calculator app u have ever used, and I have recommended it to others and they enjoy it as much as I do. Five stars.

- Calm down prices!!!!!!

This used to me my go to app for help on math homework-mainly to check the steps or for help. I have used the app through my 6th/7th grade year to now. I’m now a junior in high school. They have taken off the option of viewing steps for free. I get the company having to pay expenses as it grows, but now that they have blocked solving steps, this has just become a normal calculator. The steps were the key to the success of the app. There could be other restrictions. Examples such as only blocking text books, video tutorials, having ads, word problems, etc. Now, I don’t know what to do because I don’t agree to paying this much. Annual or monthly fees seem excessive for the amount that they are asking. Especially, considering most of these users are children and young adults ranging from 10-24 years of age. Many people don’t have money or no extra to spend. If they do want to restrict this much then they shouldn’t have it for a monthly or annual fee. I’d probably spend $8 for the app over all, up front. This app is not much cooler than Minecraft which people barely spend $7.99 for. With the amount of people who have this app, if you only charge eight dollars for it all, then you would have just enough to pay expenses. The payments have blocked too many of the things that truly matter. It was a great app until they added all the extra fees.

- Amazing app, but I can’t use it anymore

I’ve been using this app for 2+ years already and it is truly a life saver. I use it mostly for checking if my home work is correct and it is amazing. Explains everything that happened in the equation in an easy to understand manner. I also very much like the app’s appearance for some reason, it’s very clean and elegant. All of this being said, after all of this time enjoying it I cannot use it anymore. This being because my phone’s camera broke. When it first broke, the app kept working fine. I could still use the calculator that is in the app, but I had to delete the app for some time because I needed space on my phone. When school started once again I downloaded it and the app won’t even let me use the calculator because my camera isn’t compatible. Needless to say I regret deleting it, I don’t understand why it doesn’t work now when it did before and my camera wasn’t working. I really wish you could use the app even if your camera wasn’t working, or at least make it so you can use the frontal camera on your phone, I have seen the frontal camera support in other math apps (none of them are as good as this one though).

- It used to be free now it’s needlessly expensive

Why is this 10$ a month for what used to be free? You do understand most of your users are young people middle school - college and a lot of us can’t afford another monthly subscription in our budgets especially for something that used to be free. I like to get things broken down and explained on how they go the answer but now with this paywall I can’t do that anymore and it’s irritating because now all I have is the answer but no knowledge of how to do it. I understand if your developing new things with this app and this cost money but why charge for the old functionality why not just charge for the new features? Honestly even if someone wanted to use this to cheat and/or get a quick answer it’s still pointless because 90% of the time the teacher/professor wants to see how you go that answer so this app is useless even on that front too! If this app was a 1 time fee to download or was like a 0.99 - 5$ a month subscription or had different levels of payment for different features then I’d be ok with it and gladly support the devs but this app dose NOT justify 10 dollars a month it doesn’t provide enough value for 10$ a month lower your prices. And this would be the best app I ever downloaded.

- Great app but....

I got this app because I was struggling in math and needed to do my homework. I downloaded this app and it seemed pretty great. I copied down all the and the answer and moved on. I didn’t even bother trying to learn it. One I went to school and when math time came around it didn’t go so good. I got all of them right but apparently I didn’t do my work right. My teacher gave a whole speech about how she was aware of the things that we can use to “cheat” and she would catch anyone who did it. I would talk about using the app among my group but I would try not to say it really loud. I think she heard me and she also said that the work was not the way we did it in class. She gave me a 0 on all the homework assignments that she could tell that I’ve used this app. She said that she would of gave me a detention but I was honest with her about using it. I think this app should show different ways of doing the problems. And not just for coping but for learning the way that our school wants us to learn.

- This app saved my life

IXL. This app helped me conquer the most treacherous challenge I could face. IXL. It all started one day when I came home from school and was like how am I gonna do this IXL. Just then my friend texted me and was like hey what is the IXL. And I told her and I was like I'm stressing from all this IXL. So then she suggested Photomath. After that my whole life changed. An IXL that would usually take me two hours only took me ten minutes. I am so thankful. Whoever is reading this just know whoever created this app should earn an award, they are a genius. So if your ever skeptical about your math, or your having trouble just go to Photomath. And its not cheating either, it actually explains the problem step by step to help you, if cheating feels really uncomfortable for you. I already know how to do the curriculum and our teacher gives us hard IXLs because we are honors and she thinks we can handle it. But each of those problems take like an hour to work out. THANK YOU PHOTOMATH YOU SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!


Big thumbs up to this app!! It is very helpful with making problem solving simple! it not only helps you find the correct answer to a difficult problem but also shows you the steps to get there which is how I learn!! Thank you for making this app!!!!! I don’t use this app to get me out of doing assignment... I struggle with math and I will try to figure out step by step a problem and then will compare my steps with photo math and then will do a similar problem by using the steps photo math provided. Boomers will say lazy students only use this app and that is not true at all. I’m an honors student because I worked to get there. And this app has not carried me there. It has only gave me a stepping stone there. This app does not work for everything but is so helpful to a lot of things. If your using this app and Acing assignments but then bombing tests that’s your own fault. Use this app to learn... Thats the reason it was made.

- Math photo changed a bit

So I’ve been using this app for many years and not a single ad comes up (mainly because I’m not at home) but even if I’m at home using my WiFi and using this app to help check my work there will never be an add but now there is which is kinda annoying I admit but this also tells me that the company who made this app now wants money, maybe not like other companies where they want loads of money for personal uses. But besides that I’m just outright confused on how will the photo math app learn to solve other equations when I can’t find an option that lets me tell suggestions on what kind of math problems it should answer for. Also many schools don’t use math textbooks and I’m wondering if there will be modules from mathematicsvisionproject because they have many math problems that this app can’t even solve. Also there is a paid version which helps you explaining how to do the work and having more textbooks, which I see now that this app is pay to explain which I don’t think it’s worth it. Like why would this company charge for the explanation and more textbooks, not ok to have that because they literally had it for free.

- The developers deserve fame and fortune

This is the first review I have ever written. I felt obligated to write it because of how great this app is. I want to respond to the notion that this is an app primarily used as an easy way out in high school math classes. It is so much more. I am a researcher in an area that requires a lot of math to understand. I have a deep understanding of how to use math but had a poor education in lower level mathematics. This map is an enormously helpful tool for professionals to skip over the tedious algebraic processes and focus on the meaningful applications and theories. It is a tool to overcome the failings of your 8th grade teacher, and let you focus on the problem at hand. This is the kind of meaningful innovation the world needs more of. And the developers choice to release it as a free app is nothing less than benevolent. This app deserves more attention than it has recieved. Seriously, thank you for making this.

- Hey photomath users and developers

This is a wonderful app. It’s nice to use after finishing homework and checking to see if I didn’t make any mistakes. This app other than Mathway, are big life savers for high school. Although the app seemed to be working fine, after an update, which I like in some cases has this terrible glitch on the camera. IT WILL NOT FOCUS!!!! 🙄. This is very frustrating because I’ll spend like 10 min trying to get it to focus because it can’t see it. I would really ask if this be fixed. I’ve also did some test, it’s not my phone camera cause I have no problem on the regular camera. I’ve also did many things like make the little scanning rectangle bigger instead of small, further away than close up and it doesn’t help. The only thing that SOMETIMES works is lifting it up at a object far away then very slowly bring it back to the paper. Once again, great app, but please developers, please fix this problem Thanks and have a wonderful day.

- Best math app by far

I’ve been using this app for a while for help the teachers seemed to never be able to give me because either they were bad at explaining or didn’t know what exactly they were teaching. It doesn’t just only give you the answers, which is cool, it’s always helped me figured out exactly what I’m supposed to be doing and how to do it step by step. However recently I’ve come back to it because school started up again and I got frustrated that you now have to pay to see the steps just like many other math apps. I lived for the fact it was totally free and was probably my favorite of app of all time for school. Now it’s just a little irritating that I can’t see the step by step explanations anymore, but I only see the answer. I still am in love with the app though, just a little bummed out at the fact that I now have to pay for it, and I would pay for it but I’m a student so that doesn’t really work out too well.

- Great app

I love this app a lot it has helped me so much. But I have a few issues that I would like to be fixed. I really wish that it had more solutions and different methods. It doesn’t have everything for classes like pre-cal, calculus, or trig. It has most of the course work but some things just aren’t there. And sometimes it’s really frustrating. Also the app something likes to cut out my music, and doesn’t like to work when I’m listening to music. If I have music playing and then go into the app it will cut it out and pause it. Or if I already have it open but I go to different app and then go back to it by double clicking my home button, and then it will pause my music. And if I had previously had the flash on, and then go back into the app it will just not work completely. So then when both of these things happen I’ll have to close the app, and open it again. Sometimes this will happen multiple times while I’m using it.

- Lifesaver! Definitely recommend!

This app has saved my life billions of times and made math a lot easier for me. I’m not saying this because it’s good for cheating, but because it tells u the answer and work for that problem. The feedback is unbelievably fast and is now one of my top used apps. I would choose PhotoMath over calculator because it’s just so simple and easy and u can just take a photo and it will tell u the answer and work and it’s just AMAZING! This makes my math homework so much faster because if there is one problem I can’t solve, it delays my homework to another hour. This gives me the work and it’s so easy to understand. This app is better than all those other apps so definitely think of this one! I know this review is very long, but it’s just to tell you that this is an app you would wanna download! If I could rate this more, I would say 100 stars! LOVE THIS!😍😍😍

- Best Math Helper out there.

Hey Cashy Joe, I just read your review and I kinda agree with your take. However, I just completed a math question and I was unsure if I did it right. This app assured my I did not only with the right answer but also with how to do it. It even referenced my exact textbook, where I could have just checked the answer in the back of the book. There are plenty of ways to do homework assignments without actually doing them. But in the end those who get the scholarships are those who understood the content. Any Joe Shmoe can get good homework grades and colleges completely recalculate a students GPA. Homework grades aren’t getting anyone into college. I simply believe the criticism this app is getting, it doesn’t deserve. It does it’s job and it does it the best. I came here to support an app that keeps on improving and getting better. I believe Cashy Joe should support it too. Keep it up Photomath!

- Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

A million years ago when I was in college, I spent hours and hours teaching myself calculus by working the odd problems whose solutions appeared in the back of the book and then reverse engineering them to figure out how to work that type of problem. This allows me to do the same things to assist my son with his more difficult Algebra problem and to ensure he is working it correctly and if not, on which step he made a mistake. We use the “show other methods” button quite frequently to learn to work the problem in the way the teacher wants it worked. Brilliant idea and I am thrilled it will even let you neatly write the math problem and it can still read your handwriting to allow you to look for the solution. It really helps with word problems that your kid can set up but struggles to work or wants to check.

- I love this

I don’t usually write reviews. But i want to first off say that I love math ,but there are some problems that are just too hard for me to understand or the ones i know how to do but it is just too time taking for me. I want to say this app is completely amazing. I first tried “SnapCalc” first because I saw it on an ad, but it didn’t last long since I had to pay monthly for it after a few problems, which i obviously was not going to do. The solutions it showed were confusing anyways. This app is SO MUCH BETTER, it has helped me on things I don’t understand and I can learn my mistakes in minutes and I am in love with it. The best part about it is that it is FREE, completely. Since the time I’ve been using it, I don’t recall seeing an ad (though I wouldn’t mind seeing one). I just want to say thank you and I’ll definitely being using this app for life.

- Great app. Use it as a supplement to learn.

Normally don’t write reviews and I was skeptical using this app. I’m getting back into college taking low level math but some things I understandably get stuck on. While I’m taking an online class, it’s hours before the professor gets back to us. I do the online video lecture then do the homework. I don’t use this program unless I’m absolutely stuck and again I just don’t get the answer to plug it in; I read and write out the steps in the solution. It’s like having the professor guiding me through the problems I have without having to wait all day for a response. I’m sure it will help me on my future tests. Wish I found it earlier when I failed my first test this semester. I was going to pay for an ad free version or in app purchase that sent a couple bucks to the developer but I don’t see the option.

- Amazing

This app is very handy, and convenient. In school, I usually have tons of math worksheets that I have to do. I know how to solve all of it though, and I can probably get it done..... if I wasted 5 hours of my life! Thanks to Photomath, I can get work done quickly while being taught the steps. This app is not only a time saver, but has really taught me math better than my own teacher in some cases surprisingly! With that said, there are also a few problems. 1. There are some things I've tried that it couldn't solve. I know it can't solve EVERYTHING, BUT, it can solve a whole lot, so I'm not that mad. 2. It often mistakes an "s" for a 5, and a "g" for a 9, which gets on my nerves when it happens. I know though that as this app progresses even more, it'll become more and more accurate so I am overall pleased with this app. -Miles

- Used to be one of my favorite life changing apps until...

I’ve been using this app since 6th grade and it honestly was life changing, i would never do good in homework until I downloaded photomath which was a completely free app that not only gave me the answer to a math problem, but gave me a step by step explanation of how to solve it. Great right? That was until recently when they started pumping the app with ads and won’t tell you a detailed step by step explanation unless you pay $10 for premium a month. This app used to be such a big help for algebra, but now I feel like it’s just about paying to get an answer. I get that everything can’t be free, but for students they don’t really have the money to pay for a monthly premium. I really thought that this app had a charm to it, it was a students learning tool that was completely free. I’ll still use the app for checking my answers, but I can’t really get how those problems were solved.

- Fine, but one aggravating problem!!

Let me start by saying that this is a great app. I’m in grade 8 and in honors math. For the first quarter, I got the worst grades I’ve gotten in my whole life! I just didn’t get it. Now, I have a tutor and that’s been helping me tremendously. On nights when my tutor doesn’t come and I have hw, I can use this app to help me do it. It gives a great explanation that I can apply towards the rest of my assignment. The one HUGE problem, however, is that it never focuses!!! I have to wait a whole two minutes for the thing to focus, if I’m lucky, or just have to type it into the calculator. My solution (now, I’m no app developer but I think this would work) is to have that little feature where you can click on the screen to get it to focus. I have an iPhone 6s so I’m pretty sure that has the autofocus feature but it still doesn’t work. Please do something about this!!

- What happened??

I’ve been using photo math since the 6th grade. This app has always taught me things that my teachers didn’t. I would’ve given this app 5 starts a few months ago but when I came back to the app, they wouldn’t explain the steps to a problem unless I pay for a subscription. I understand you have to do what you have to do but photo math has never been this way. This app always walked me through my problems and help me understand the concept of certain topics. Now I’m not able to learn the thing I need to learn. Children are already at home not getting the education they need due to COVID-19 and photo math is like an at home teacher. Is there any other way to get my math questions explained step by step? Because I don’t feel I should have to pay to receive the information and knowledge I need to be successful in mathematics. Photo math has turned into a regular calculator since you aren’t able to be walked through your problems anymore. I am no longer a fan of the app.

- Easily the best app ever made. It changed me.

This app has changed my life. I love it and it works so well. I HAVE NEVER LOVED SOMETHING IN MY LIFE MORE THAN THIS APP. IT HAS BROUGHT MY GRADE UP SO HIGH AND NOW IT WILL HELP ME GET A JOB!!!!!!! I was in a deep depression these past years all because of math. This app motivates me to do better and has SAVED MY LIFE. I have never felt such feelings for something. I owe my life to this app and it has caused the best things that could ever happen to me. Whoever created this app is an actual god and should be blessed with happiness and fortune. I cry every night. Tears of joy for this app. Now I am a regular person and hope to get a job soon. I pray to this app whenever I use it and always cry and scream to know how thankful I am for this app. It has moved my life into a position it has never been in and I hope it moves others too. Thank you photomath for saving my life.

- This helped me get a 90% is Algebra 1!

I had this app when like barely anybody used it and it SUCKED and didn’t work at all. Then all my friends started talking about again and so I downloaded it and WOAHHH it had changed! I use this app in and out of class and it has been a life changer. Story time: (side note- we use workbooks that have our hw in them and we rarely have worksheets in google classroom but we did today) It was like 6 minutes before class started and he decided to tell us that he was collecting our ws that was hw from last night, I thought we would just put in our workbooks when he collected them, so I had 6 minutes to do the rest of the problem on the ws (there were like 12). This story is getting to long so in the end I rushed and finished all the problems. PHOTOMATH IS AMAZING AND HAS SAVED ME FROM GETTING GROUNDED!

- Beautiful and helpful until now.

I’m studying for my GED and math has been my worst subject since forever. My previously foolproof way of “getting it” was this: 1. Read subject in book 2. Watch khan academy video explaining it way better 3. This app was my last defense against stumbling on a problem. The way it breaks down every possible step to the equation makes it so easy for not-so-math-smart people like me. Today I’m studying like always and stumbled on another problem, pull out my handy dandy Photomath, and.. it prompts me to start a subscription, of course when I try to figure out the part I really didn’t understand. The initial step breakdown is still free, but when I click the “why” button and saw that my heart sank. I never write reviews on anything, ever. I just had to voice how disappointed I am in this. I know we live in the day and age of subscriptions to apps that don’t need them but feel entitled to charge you anyways, but something as simple as this is disheartening at best.

- oh. my. god.

HOLY CRAP!!! This app is a true life saver! My math teacher is CRAZY and gives us tones of homework that is waaaaaay to advanced for my grade (plus she explains really badly and is overall a horrible teacher). This weekend I had something planned that was very important but, of course, my math teacher thought I’d be a perfect time to give us TEN PAGES filled with complicated algebra problems... In a desperate search of the internet, I found this app. It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. It not only gives you the answer, but gives you a clear step-by-step explanation. It can solve ANYTHING! Thinking that this app is simply too good to be true, I was expecting tones of ads and payed special features, but no, this app is ad-less and COMPLETELY FREE!!! WOW!!! Thank you to whoever created this app, you are an angel sent from god himself!

- Perfect app

My teacher in the beginning of the year was great, but when the second month of school hit she just started giving out homework after homework and I just got sick and tired of it. One of the reasons I am using this app is because it saves so much time as a high school student and secondly she doesn’t even grade the homework that takes us 30 minutes at minimum! I am not a D or F student in math at all, instead, last year I would finish every quarter off with over an 100 in math without even knowing about this app while all my friends would struggle. Math just comes easy to me but you need to take your time so if you’re a busy person I would totally recommend using this app because it will save you hours that you could be using for other useless homework .

- Awesome App

I never write reviews so the fact that I am writing one right now is incredible. I decided to take a few minutes to say that this is a magnificent app. I have used Mathway before, but this one is ten times better. Mathway doesn’t show you how to arrive at the answer and the steps to get there, it just tells you the answer. I admire this app so much, it helps me with a majority of my math problems and shows you the steps and how to do them. I also tried another app similar to this one which I can’t remember, but this one is better than all the rest. Some things I would suggest is adding more textbooks like “Saxon Math” Algebra 1 and above because Photomath doesn’t support the answers to word problems which is what I struggle with most, but other than that, great app!

- Nope, not today.

I was hoping this would actually work, unlike other apps. What lame excuse for not being able to solve it is this “Oh, we can’t solve it YET, let’s do it later.” Totally stupid. When I saw the reviews, the majority of it was 5 stars, but tbh, the 1 star people had pretty great reasons to give as to why this app is a complete waste of time and effort. The problems it scanned didn’t even give me an answer, it also provides the wrong explanation and answer. For example, when the problem wanted me to round to place values, it converted the numbers to decimals and fractions(which was NOT what I was learning at the time), making me extremely confused. If any parent downloads this for their children, they will regret it. The kid’s homework will be all wrong (probably) and they will have wasted time listening to stupid/false “explanations,” which answers aren’t even related to the problem. Again, I suggest everyone not to buy this STUPID FRICKING APP. FRICK YOU DEVELOPER

- It’s so helpful! ❤️🐼 I got straight A’s!

I recommend you guys to use this app! It’s an awesome feeling to understand math! I have a professor who’s not really that good in teaching. He’s a kind of professor who just sits and read what’s on the book. Sure, you can learn something but what if you’re a kind of person who has to learn every single detail? 🙂 That’s right, I’m that kind of person. I wanted to understand everything in detail. 🙂 When I started using this app, I was amazed because you can easily understand everything since it’s explained in detail, 🙂so I was happy because I always get A’s on my quizzes and tests. Try it! FYI, I’m not a math person. 😂 in fact l, I hated math, but it’s a good feeling when you’re actually leaning “math” Thanks for this app! It’s very accurate and helpful! 😊

- It has changed for the worst

I updated the app as to find the new features. I don’t like the idea that I must pay for it monthly. I just started school and I’m getting stuck on my work because it could no longer explain how I got my answer. I would learn from this app. Now I can’t learn how I got my answer. Yes I get the answer but seems more like a normal calculator. I really enjoyed this app before because it actually explained to me how I got the answer without me paying for anything. It was able to explain things very good. I just don’t like it anymore. Can you at least leave the explanation for my answer. Used to like it like before. I used to be able to write the problem and then I would be able to see the answer. I would try to do it on my own especially with the explanation. It really taught me how to the problem. Now I won’t be able to do that. I don’t have that kind of money for it monthly. It’s would’ve been better if I payed for the app but not the subscription.

- Now you gotta pay

I have used this app since I was in middle school. It has helped me tremendously in understanding how to answer questions I have lots of difficulties with. But yet again, you now have to pay to get any explanations to the problem entered. It was a good app until they started to charge the user. My best guess is that the majority of users who use this app are kids still in school, mainly middle and high school. Now yes I’m assuming that college students do use this app as well but they probably only make up a smaller portion of users. So it’s very disappointing that yet another app that I use as turned to making the entire use of the app into a profit disregarding that a majority of people who use it are most likely unable to pay. Overall, if you’re looking for a quick answer and that’s all then this is the app. But you will not get any other information regarding to how the answer was gotten.

- Amazing App for Parents

This is a spectacular app! I downloaded it thinking if it was half (0.5) of what it claimed to be I would be completely (100%) stoked! I must admit, this app is all I could have expected and more!!! It is fast, efficient, accurate, and it makes reviewing my child’s homework a breeze!!!! I’m no mathematician by any stretch of the imagination, so I have forgotten many of the methods used in teaching the basics. This app saves me time from having to look everything up on the web, refresh my memory, then teach it to my child. I just scan the problem, view the resulting output, and it all just seems to come back to me!!! Thank you so much to the creators!!! You should be brimming with pride in knowing your brain child is of such great use!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- Honestly The Most Helpful App Ever

This app is amazing, I go to one of the hardest schools in my country and this app has helped me understand so much material, the scan feature is spot on, I have terrible handwriting, even some teachers can’t understand it, but this app can understand what I wrote in a mere second. Photomath provides an in-depth solution for every problem, showing you the solving steps in an instant, along with a simple, not hard to understand explanation below it. It will show graphs for equations and even has a built in calculator which is very easy to use and can input stuff that your average calculator can’t. Overall, I would rate this app a 10/10 and a must have if you’re a student, it provides a simple, understandable ad-free experience.

- ♥️♥️♥️

I love this. I was looking for an app that would help me with something. Since I am not that smart I was stupidly placed in one of the smartest classes in my school and I kept failing every test. After weeks of failing and lost my confidence I found this app. I started reading reviews and saw that pretty much everyone gave it 5 stars and how it helped them so I decided to try it out. I did a couple of problems and started to do my homework and every answer that I had was right. It had helped me so much. It pretty much saved my life. I went from getting F’s to getting B’s. And that is thanks to this app. It saved my life and I recommended it to my friends who were having trouble with somethings as well. Thanks so much for making this app that can help anyone!!! ♥️♥️♥️

- Kept me smart during lockdown

My friend introduced me to Photomath after hearing multiple complaints from me about not understanding my school work during lockdown, and having limited instruction on how to do it properly. I used it during the last few months of school and during summer classes and it has literally saved me. I’m not so good at math and it takes multiple revisions and patience to teach me. Usually I’m taught what to do, but I never understand why I need to do it, so I end up not understanding anything. I was super nervous to start 8th grade since I heard my teacher is a good teacher but is a no nonsense type of teacher. I feel more confident in my math skills and I’m slightly excited for school, not gonna lie. Thank you so much Photomath developers ^.^


Whoever created app must have been heaven sent to solve the worlds problems. This app is amazing. It helps me more than a tutor! If it wouldn't have been for this app. I don't know what I would have done. Thank you guys so much! All throughout school I've failed math, I've never had a solid way to learn math, until I found this app, this app had truly changed my life, I owe everything I have to the person who designed and created this app, I hope they are truly blessed! I can't even understand how I would get through high school or college without this app, I can't believe it's free, they say the best things in life are free, WELL THIS APP ONLY CONFIRMS THAT! Thank you so much Photomath, I owe you everything in my life!! Because you saved my life!

- Amazing app

The app is great to help double check you math and get some tips. This app overall improves my math and I think it great. While you may not download it because you think it’s expensive and other reviews are saying it’s too much but if you buy it it’s basically a online tutoring program and if you need it it’s worth the price. If you don’t want to pay that’s fine because you can still use it to help you check your math and provides a few steps on how they did it with is great considering that most app would make you pay 7 dollars a WEEK just to use that app and there wrong have the time. I’ve been using this app for quite some time and I would recommend it to anyone as a great math checking app.

- Best app ever!

Allow me to explain what is so different about this app than the rest: It is able to solve problems, even difficult one. To be honest, I had my doubt that this app could possibly solve complicated problem. An example would be: (4-x^2)(1/3)[(6x+1)^-2/3)](6)-[(6x+1)^1/3)](2x). Other apps would be like:"this cannot be solved, but this app was able to solve it correctly! And the problem was a pre-calculus one! This is why you should invest in this app, and great job to the developer! People say that this is cheating, but cheating means if you just try to find the answer without any solution or process on how it was solved. This app shows you the answer and the entire process to getting the solution, so you are learning from it, not cheating.

- It Works!!!!

OMG!! So I never write reviews on anything but I’m writing this one now because I feel as if people underestimate the app. I had downloaded this app because of a friend and I didn’t know if it would actually work but when I tried it on my regents homework (algebra) it worked and I was so surprised it saved me hours of time and I was able to even go to the cinema afterwards, and the app doesn’t just give you the answer if you click the little arrow it shows how to actually do the problem yourself so it’s a tutor in a way too because of this app I now know how to solve algebraic equations by myself but I still use this app to check my work so I would definitely recommend this app to all even adults can use it!!!

- Wow

This app is bomb, I recommend to everyone. Even if you aren’t enrolled in school or have a job that presents you with difficult math problems, you can enter literally anything and this app knows the answer. I missed two weeks of college and took pictures of the problems on the grades homework assignment I was assigned, which was on the material I had missed in the two weeks, and the answers were broken down step by step and I got a 100 on the assignment. I would have had to watch probably an hour and a half worth of educational videos to understand the concepts if I had not used this app and had everything broken down for me in such a simple way. This is the best app in the store. I wish I came up with the idea.

- Better than my teacher

My teacher doesn’t really give us the best notes and HW assignments are nothing like the notes or example in class so I’m here struggling becuase I have nothing to reference. With Photomath it teaches ya how to solve it and for about 2 years now this app has done a better job of teaching me how to solve problems and helping me recognize where I made a mistake better than my teachers. I find myself using the app less and less (this is a good thing) because it teaches me how to do problems I might see in the future. I high recommend this to any student struggling but make sure to try at first and to not copy the answer because then your only hurting yourself for test and quizzes. Use it as a guide not a cheating tool.

- please change what’s free and what isn’t!!

i’ve used photo math for majority of my middle school/high school experience. this app was always helpful by showing me the proper way to do certain problems along with the reasoning behind it. now you have to pay $10 per month just to have an equation explained. please consider removing this feature and let the explanations be free. i understand that the company needs a way of income but consider making other features have an annual/monthly pay instead. for example, with the PLUS feature it gives you the explanation of how the problem is solved but also gives a “why?” selection to further explain as to why the problem is solved that way. please consider making that a PLUS feature instead of the explanations.

- Thank You!

Okay, so EVERYTIME I hear about these apps they can never do anything other than solve simple subtraction, division, multiplication, and addition problems meant for elementary schoolers. While that’s all nice and dandy, that’s what the calculator that comes preinstalled on every phone is for. But, when I downloaded this app a couple months ago in the midst of a mental breakdown over some algebra homework, I practically sang Hallelujah. It solves almost every algebra, calculus, and geometry problem I throw it’s way! My friends and I even gave it a name (Jeremy), and they joke about how we have been in a relationship for the last few months and that he has been helping me with my homework every day. Idk why y’all needed to know that, but I seriously do love this app.

- Perfect app.

It’s definitely possible. Taylor Swift or whoever the heck said “nothing is perfect” is WRONG, wrong, wrong, wrong. This app is simple to use. Some people say that users don’t actually learn by using this, but the feature where it shows the work is just amazing, and the opposite of that. My friend can only help me so much in math, but with this, I can use it much more. I recommend it to as many people as possible. Sorry to repeat, but I just love that feature about showing the work. This app is already at it’s peak performance, but that performance could be done even more.... as a Widget. This is probably a bit much to ask, considering you’ve done all this already, but a Widget version of this would be great. Thank you, so much.

- Photomath review

Ok so I was struggling. In math especially with division and using this app I didn’t exactly just get the answers for the problems are use this app to understand how to do the problems and this really help me and I got all A’s in my math classes for division because of this app so I’m reading this five stars because this app helped me so much and I just want to thank you guys for having this up and well it made math so much easier for me and it worked with almost all of my problems but then I go to solutions and it gives me a solution for the problem so I understand it better than what the teacher thought so thank you photo math and because of you I got all A’s in the unit of division in my class so once again thank you

- A+, here I come!

Pre-Calc is definitely a hard class for me. I’ve been struggling with it since the beginning of the year. My friend suggested this app to me and I brushed it off thinking I’m not a cheater, but this app is not for cheating. I scanned my completely difficult problem and was shocked to find that it gave the right answer. Not only that, but it gave an in depth explanation with a graph to help. I now understand what I’m learning for the first time in months. I’ve been struggling through this class with a barely B- and can finally bring this grade up! It’s not for the answers, my teacher gives us every answer to the problems. I can finally have math explained to me in a way easier and fast way. Thank you for this app!

- honestly get a different app for this, used to love.

Have used this app for more than a year, but recently they added a subscription where you have to pay for it explain it to you. I understand wanting to get some money out of the app and the developing of it but why’d you have to change it? Now you have to pay for things that you didn’t have to pay for before? Bring back the old version!! I don’t just want the answer but I am not going to pay for the explanation. I am literally in school how could I have the money to pay for the subscription. I honestly really loved this app for a long time but if your looking for an app like this don’t use this one, there are probably many others that could do the same for free. And the ads!! they’re so annoying especially when i’m literally trying to do work. Please change it back to the old way.

- Must have app!!!

This app is just so awesome I have no words to describe it like that's how amazing this app is. Not only does this app tell you the solutions to a math problem they also show you how they did it so than you can follow step by step and learn everything. If you are having trouble understanding an equation just scan it and they will tell you the solution and show you all the steps. If you also have a hard time graphing equations this app can also do that for you and they will explain to you how they did it. This app is honestly the best and it's FREE!!! This is like hiring your private tutor except this is free. There are no second thoughts about this app if you struggle with math like I do then this app is for you. Best math app out there!!!!

- Review

This is a great app with a lot good ways to help you. It has a calculator with a lot of confusing things on it. But the most important thing of all is the camera that lets you take a math problem and turn it into a solution with a shot of a picture. It shows a solution with steps showing how it got there. I think this app is great! ( if ur reading this then this app is really great, if u wonder why I’m so enthusiastic then here’s a story to tell to your son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter. So this one day I played video games with my friend and then I got off videos to go to bed. Now I’m here bored as hell writing this review and probably going to bed in 3 2 1.) To everyone who reads this have a great rest of the year. This app is great!

- Surprising

Holy cow! When I first got this app I was thinking ‘This app looks kind of sketchy, but I have no other choice, might as well check it out’ am I glad I did! This app is truly a life saver! It was either this app or 2hours of math homework, so I say to the developers, thank you, thank you, thank you so much! This app is truly wonderful, I have no complaints! Also, to everyone that says this app helps you cheat, yeah sure it does, but what student in their right mind would pull their phone out mid test to do this? Non I know! This app gives you the answer and a detailed explanation! This app should replace the normal calculator! This app takes away the need to spend money to hire a tutor, I tell anyone in need of math help about this app. Truly amazing!

- Used to be a great app till...

This app is such a great app if you don’t understand when a person explains it to you or if you just simply don’t understand an equation. This is a great app but recently it has been very bad. When the new update version of the app came out and I scanned a problem and it took me to steps I pressed explain how but it says I need to pay. Now I just need a explanation of a question I don’t really want to pay because it don’t use it all the time. So I understand that you guys need money for your app but could you please fix that and make it free again? Apart from that it is a great app! I also support SQUISHY JELLYFISHES review. Even if you can’t make it free again could you make it cheaper than that and not to expire just forever you pay for. This has put me a bit off this app. Thank you

- The Best Maths Assistant BY FAR

This app is absolutely spectacular. It’s the app that made me go from a D in maths to a B in the span of 6 months, not because I cheated my way through each bit of homework by getting the answer straight away, but rather because I checked my answers using the app. It not only tells you whether or not the answer is correct, it also tells you HOW you could change the answer! It helps you understand what you did wrong and it does it in specific details! This is by far the most amazing maths assistant of this decade and I would like to thank all the developers who partook in its making. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone, including those already getting A’s in maths. Thank you for all of the help you have given me! 😊

- This free app is fantastic!!

This app is fantastic! I have read concerns about how it could assist children to cheat which is true, but the benefits for children that use it appropriately are significant. My son used the app first when he didn’t understand the question/problem. Using the app he took a photo and it instantly gave the answer (sometimes there are multiple answers depending on the question, or various ways to solve the problem) but importantly it showed the working out. Once he understood what was required, he was able to complete all further questions, and then just use the app to check his answers. It is like a personal home tutor! It is free and a valuable learning/teaching resource. We love it and highly recommend it!!

- The most useful utility for Math

Photomath has been able to provide quick clues and instant solutions to almost any maths problem and has been a real help in my maths homework. Not only does it provide an accurate and correct answer, but also gives me a highly detailed but simple explanation which allows me to understand how to do a similar problem in the future. Additionally, the app also allows you to use the calculator to edit or type a calculation. I also love how the developers are so open to advice for improvement. Thank you so much to the Photomath team for developing such a simple, polished and accessible app which can be useful for everyone.

- An awesome FREE app!

Photomath has helped me many times with my math, and is only growing in its understanding. The developers also see the point in “education should be free” as nothing costs, as an aspiring student, it is an amazing help for homework, etc. giving detailed descriptions on how to do work. I rate 4 stars only because their is room for improvement, I have had a number of sums either not all ways it can be figured out or were not given all the steps in solving. The clear graphics and easy manoeuvring through the app makes it a delight to use. I would also recommend for the developers to put a description on what is wrong when we send tips for what can be improved as constructive feedback! Thank young heaps developers for this AMAZING app!

- Brilliant app

Honestly this app is awesome and has helped me through many a math problem due to it showing the steps involved and how to do it, this lets m check my answers for stupid mistakes when I’ve got something wrong or teach me the correct way of answering a question. I would highly recommend this app to everyone especially students who don’t really like to (or can’t ) ask the teacher for help with every question they can’t understand. Thankyou for creating an amazing and effective learning tool you have helped me through my maths classes and let my grades excel by virtue of being able to learn everything at home.

- Quality

This app is very good, I use it for my homework whenever I don’t understand and always get it right. This app is free as well and is better than a calculator as the app shows full working out and can do algebra. This saves your time as it has a scanning feature so you don’t have to write in your equations like on a calculator. Definitely good. Would recommend!! Only bad thing is the camera or bad handwriting but you can easily type it in yourself. For those complaining, remember this is FREE and not a hundred dollar app so don’t complain as it is OUTSTANDING for its price which is none.

- Price man

This app has helped me a lot for the past few years and really helped me understand a few key concepts in junior school but that was when it was free and gave a more detailed response. I get you have to make money but even a once off payment would be more than plenty compared to what you would’ve originally made from users. The premium could even be made with an in app purchase with a once off price. The app is great but recently hasn’t been as helpful as in the past since the lack of detailed response and as a student can’t afford the subscription. Please reconsider the prices. Still a great app though.


plz make this cheaper, it would make it so much more accessible to others. I’ve written a review before and I have no problem with the app only the price. I was just reviewing my maths and didn’t understand something so I pulled out my phone and used the app. It gave me the answers but I wanted to look into why that was the answer in more details but alas I have to pay. Plz listen to me I’m not the only one saying this stuff. Thank you for taking your time to read this and I hope to get a response. Kind regards. 😊

- Good, but really costly. Especially for its targeted demographic.

I know that even the developers have to make a living somehow. But the reason this app stood out was because we didn’t have to pay. Many of this apps users are students, and as you know, students don’t have that much money to spend on an app. Maybe instead of charging students so much money for our age groups(12-19) who earn minimum wage of $10 or less. Maybe run ads or make the subscription cost less. The app itself comes really handy when wanting a quick solve the many problems, so no problem there. It’s just the cost of it, if the targeted group was adults (21+) the cost seems great, but for teenagers it’s just a bit too high.

- Incredible App

Amazed with such a brilliant concept. Someone needs to give the developer more credit for this. Taking technology to a whole new level and beyond. The app is quick with capturing the desired equation & provides a detailed solution in under a millisecond. Absolutely sensational. It's rare to find resources that provide a detailed format of working out so I know that anyone will find this App useful. This app is exceptionally helpful for anyone at any stages of math and the developers should be aware that I will 110% be recommending this to fellow math colleagues, family and friends.

- This app saved my high school years XD

I can’t express how much i want to recommend this app, it’s so useful, since my teacher doesn’t explain the topic very well, i can only learn it my self, and with photo math, it absolutely saved my high school years. I would like to thank all the devs that went ahead on making this, it’s really useful. The only thing i would think of improving is make a premium subscription where we could get rid of ads as every few scans, repetitive ads pops up. Thanks for ur time ;)

- Life saver

You have no idea the amount of times I’ve gotten myself into a conundrum where there is a question that seems almost impossible to solve. This app hasn’t let me down at all, it’s just amazing how I can learn that I’ve written the question wrong all along or completely forgotten that 2 times 3 is 6. All my troubles are gone with a click and a few swipes with great detail on what to do and even what rule to use. I’m never going to be in these annoying situations again.🥳😅

- It’s good but can you please add this feature

I honestly really like this app, but I would like this to add a new feature. And that feature is so that the camera can recognise worded problems and be able to solve it while showing how it solved it. I think if you add the worded problem feature, than this app would be perfect! Bare in mind this is my own personal opinion and if the app were to have the worded problem solving feature than this app would easily help you for nearly every math situation. Overall it’s a great app but please I hope you consider my request.

- Good ish - also switching to desmos

I’m just going to get this out first, If you need a calculator that can get the job done fast, no questions asked, this is perfect. It’ll work incredibly for you, if, however, you want something that will detail the instructions to help you better understand it, then don’t download this unless you have almost 60 bucks a year to spare. I would have given this 5 stars, if they hadn’t make you pay to get a tutorial. But don’t let the money doubt this amazing app. It’s perfect for everything in math (as long as you don’t want a tutorial) except for graphing. And I 100% understand why you have to charge people for tutorials.

- It is good but...

The app is great but my class is like a testing class, we are using devices for homework and we submit it online. So can you make a option where you scan a photo that is already taken? For fun me and other friends do grade 10 homework since we can access it and I have little-no idea what the questions are about so if you could add this in it would be great. Overall if I didn’t have online homework the app would be awesome!

- Best math app EVER!♥️♥️

This app made my results make into an A!! I couldn’t have done without it!!! It is accurate and allows me to understand how to get the right answer, how to calculate it. I’m not that bothered to type in the problem, so I just take a pic, and some of the times, it doesn’t understand it, even in my neatest writing, so I would like it to improve on understanding the writing more better. But overall, it’s the best!! That’s why, I give it 5 stars!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- It’s a great app...But make the explanations free?!

I would give 5 stars for this amazing app that has helped me so much but I find it hard to understand and learn from a question if I can’t see the explanation of a certain step because you need to pay. Plsssss make it free like last time. I’m taking time to write this review because I feel strongly about helping make your app better. I thank you too for taking time to read this and I hope you guys will listen to what many people including me are saying. Thank you😊

- Good

Pretty good tool that solves simple to more challenging equations and gives a step through guide for solutions. Only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars is that it can’t solve all equations and gives a notification saying we can’t solve that right now but will be able to soon or something like that. I find that a lot of what I need answers to are mostly beyond the app’s capabilities right now but hopefully this can improve in the future. Also improve the app’s recognition as well. Good app overall!

- Amazing!

Everyone get this! So handy for high school and uni people especially it tells you the answer and how to do it so you don’t need to keep emailing your teacher about that question how to do it! If doing revision the day before a test, and there is something you are unsure of. Snap it and it will tell you how to do it and then you will never forget how to do it again and is also helpful for people in work jobs and shops. Get this now!

- Keep on doing the wonderful and amazing work guys

It is so much easier and it is a life saver without this app i dont really now how maths would be easier without this app. This app gives you everthing for example calculator and if you didn't have the calculater app it would be so bad and also if yiu would like an example of the solving out it shows you which is the best so thank you guys for making this wonderful amazing app ♥️

- Went from Good to Bad

I have been a user of this app for quite some time and when I used it it was good because if there was a numerical problem I didn’t understand Photomath had me converted for free. Now after the Photomath+ update me trying to know how to solve the question step by step is more difficult since I have to pay $93AUD annually for the subscription, I understand the business aspect of the subscription because before Photomath was a free service and wasn’t profiting much (if at all). Just one request please reduce the price of the subscription so it’s beneficial for the app and the people

- Speechless

It’s. Incredible. There are no other apps like it and they don’t try to scam you with a free trial. Honestly, this app deserves to be paid for. That’s how good it is! Really good job to the devs. It shows you the working out and if there is a section I don’t understand I can write it out in my bad handwriting and it will still understand it, rather than having to type it into a calculator. This is the most useful maths app I’ve potentially ever seen! 👍👍

- The best Math Calculator on the entire Appstore

Really love the way how it explains each problem in a simple way. Photomath is very helpful when studying for an exam or even just doing homework that you don’t understand. Although some people might think of it as cheating, i think it’s a great way to solve and actually understand what your doing when solving questions which is why i would recommend this app to friends.


Been through many apps to help me with math as I have alote of trouble and this is by far the best one I’ve ever seen. Works out problems fast and gives me detailed instructions on how to work it out. It also gives you alternative forms of answers (Fractions, graphs and normal) This is great if you have worksheets with multiple equations and don’t know how to do them or if you are studying for a test. Highly recommend!!

- I used to love this app

I downloaded Photomath 2 years ago. I absolutely loved it and I used it all the time and it really helped me in math. Until about 7 months ago I deleted the app because I didn’t need it anymore. I downloaded this app again expecting it to be as great as I remembered BUT: First of all, it makes you pay for nearly all explanations even SIMPLE questions, not helpful AT ALL. Second of all, this app does not even scan my question and keeps telling me it’s not in frame even though it clearly is. Very disappointed about how bad this app has become. I remember when it was a magnificent app but now it’s rubbish. -unhappy Photomath ex user

- Need to pay

It’s used to great when you don’t have to pay, but now all the explanations needs to be payed.. I understand your company need to gain money but it’s not being very friendly to students who doesn’t have money or credit cards, I wouldn’t ask my parents for them because they have already payed too much for my education, and you’re telling me that this app, which helps me at only certain maths conditions needs to pay $16 dollars a month is ridiculous. It doesn’t have all the solving solutions to my problems so I don’t think it’s worth me to cost that money.


This app helps me with my work so much. Not just by telling me the answers but it also explains it in an excellent way which i understand. From what I know, it cannot do word problems yet. But it is completely free of charge and very straight forward to use. Ad free as well! I recommend this app for students 100% if you’re struggling to understand or find the answers to an equation.

- Life saver

This app is a life saver cause like I’m going through Yr 11/12 exams and it’s the only thing that’s helping understand the concepts and the graphs and step by step guides are a must for everything that I need to understand Maybe just a note that the camera is sometimes a little inaccurate but it helps that you can edit what it picked up so all in all thus app works perfectly


I tend to only use this to show myself how stupid I am and it always works. I love how you can type your own problem in and it will explain the solution to you step by step. The new animated method is also really nice giving a great visual experience. This app is amazing but I recommend not getting too attached to it or being completely reliant on it.

- I miss what it used to be

Photomath was my favourite. I’d use it whenever I’d do math homework and it was the only reason I passed mathematical methods last year. I opened it suddenly today because I didn’t understand a maths concept and was looking for the working out steps in the brilliant detail that I remembered but instead of learning I got a slap in the face. I used to recommend this app but my friends and I just can’t afford it. It’s just become a regular calculator unless you shell out money

- Used to be good

This used to be a really good app, whenever I was unsure on those really long equations, finding graphs, really anything, I could get a detailed explanation of how to get the answer. I understand that they wish to be profitable, but taking away the feature from the free version of the app where you could have an explanation has made it only a little better then a calculator in some cases. I wish I knew how they got the answer and why they did such.

- This is life saving!

I am not a fake review at all! I promise everybody reading this that this is the best app for math! It tells you the solutions and steps of how they solved it, step by step word by word. It calculates every single problem and is really fast. No glitching whatsoever. I am absolutely in love with this app. It’s really helping me get my homework done faster and teaching me along the way. Trust me, GET THIS APP!

- Absolutely amazing

The best maths tutoring app ever used! It includes basically all the features I need in high school so far. Its photo analysis feature is also super nice since it’s very accurate as long as the handwriting isn’t too messy. The solution is also logical and step-by-step which is straight forward for someone who doesn’t understand.

- This is SO HELPFUL ٩( ᐛ )و

This app is such a bonus meme when I’m trying to solve an equation. It has allows you to take a photo of your problem and will easily solve it for you, including easy steps to how they solved it. I totally recommend because one snap can help you understand what your actually trying to do. ٩( 'ω' )و

- This saved me

This app is currently getting me through high school, I can get an answer in seconds with the click of a button, sounds great right? The only downside is that it doesn’t always read the question properly or in some cases the answer was wrong and doesn’t turn side on. But other than that I strongly recommend this for everyone😁

- Definitely Recomend

This app is absolutely mind blowing it has made my extended maths far easier to understand. I believe if your a mathematician or barely know how to read and write this app will help you out honestly if they put a $10 price tag it would still probably be worth it so keep up the good work developers.

- Actual Saviour

This is literally the best app if you need help with math problems, I’ve only used this app for algebra and linear equations so far and it’s actually saved me. The step by step instructions shows you how to get the answer as opposed to just the answer which is ultimately better than just the answer.

- Sneaky subscription update

This was a great app that was very useful and well executed UI. However the addition of the subscription model in a recent update was sneaky. Further, to not be able to see the subscription costs clearly with transparency is a off the nose. To have to click through to the signing up for the free trial, to then see those outrageous prices, well, good luck to you. I understand that the Devs hard work should be repatriated, but a subscription model for an hardly used is a bridge too far. Especially when a quick search on google gets the same results. Personally I’d be happy to pay a reasonable amount as a once off fee for the “Pro” version. But as an early user of this app, I feel let down that the the Devs have taken away functionality that was parry of the original app to ask a monthly fee to give back.

- Amazing

Probably the best app for mathematics that you can get, and best of all it is free! It does exactly what it says, you can take a photo of an equation, and it works it out for you, AND shows the working out step by step. It can also graph equations, and has a calculator built in that is easy to use. ++ no ads at all :)

- It’s possibly the greatest math app in existence.. but

This app accurately solves equations, and gets its right pretty much every time. My only complaint is that the Pro membership is far too expensive. I just can’t bring myself to pay nearly a $100 AUD for a membership that will only last a year.

- it helps so much for young children!

I love this app so much, it was recommended by a friend and it helps shows how you got the answer step by step. I have a math exam soon and doing review is so easy now because all the questions I get stuck on are showed here. Amazing app! Props to the creator! From a very grateful yr 9 student 🤪

- Useful app, but it killed my iPhone SE

I really like this app, it makes going through math a lot more efficiently. However, pressing on the equation steps caused my iPhone SE to quite literally kill itself, and bricking the phone off, so I can’t turn it back on anymore. I’m writing this from my new phone. I really hope that some prevention for this come in so other people don’t have to go through the shock and stress of this. :)

- Great but a small suggestion

This app is great however people would benefit from being able to scan from photos. I don’t know how this app works and if it is not possible to add this feature I would understand but just a small suggestion :)

- Such an incredible app

Never reviewed an app in my life but Photomath is incredible. It’s like having a professor over your shoulder walking you through a problem step-by-step. It’s in fact more comprehensive than a professor because you can interpret the solution relative to your own knowledge

- Awesome but not what expected

This app helped me in a lot of my maths homework. A lot that I didn’t understand it gave me the answer but not only giving me the answer it had the steps on how to do it and I really appreciate it. However, the app kept on mistaking the multiplication sign to be the letter X which really frustrates me. Please fix this up. Most of the time the x’s written in maths would usually look like this )( but more closer together.

- Get it!

If you need math help you should definitely get this app. It’s easy to use and you don’t feel like you’re cheating because it teaches you. However I don’t love the fact that you have to pay to get a clear explanation of the steps. It’s a really good app overall.

- Amazing app!

This app has helped me so much through many variations of mathematical equations given to me for homework. I love how easy the explanations feel and how the answers have something to back them up, which is exactly what many teachers ask for. Keep up the good work Photomath!

- Re: Clear Explanation and Reading

Sometimes it cannot read the question properly and gives the wrong answer and also I don’t really like how you need to pay to get clear explanations. Why can’t you just explain to people how you do it! But this app really helps me with math generally if I have no one to ask.

- This app helped me so much

Maths gets really difficult and sometimes I don’t really understand the teacher very well but Photomath helped me so much so I understand how the problems work. All answers come with detail steps which makes everything easier. 😁😁

- Love the app but have an idea.

So my idea is to basically upgrade the app so it can solve word problems along with equations it could really help people out.

- Nice

The best calculator!!!

- Pay to use

The only people who use this app is students. How on earth can you introduce a pay feature, we’re all poor! This used to be such a good app too.

- They got greedy $$$

If there was a zero star rating, I would rate it as that. It was the best ever Math app I’ve ever had until the recent update. $12.99/month for the access of solution explanation feature that was previously free of charge. I’m really disappointed to what happened. I know they need money, but solutions are the only reason why I need this app, and why I’m passing my math classes. It’s time to find a new app.

- Are you serious? NOT FREE ANYMORE.

They only give you 7 questions they can solve for you every week, and then you are FORCED TO PAY if you want unlimited solutions. Let me tell you that it was ALL FREE before, a student’s best friend. But now, they want you to PAY 13 DOLLARS A MONTH to help you on math questions. This is outrageous.

- Vraiment utile!

Je l'utilise souvent et très pratique!

- Bad new version

Now I only have to pay to solve more than 5 problems, before it was free

- Sucks Now

This app was amazing before, it gave you explanations, told you everything in the click of a photo. Now if you want an explanation you need to get premium, literally anything you want to know the app is like oh get premium

- It’s sad now

Loved this app and it helped me with my math homework but the recent update requires you to pay in order to use it

- Absolutely Useless Now

Photomath was really useful back then but now, I’m being forced to pay money in order to solve questions. A five question limit per week is absolutely absurd!

- Sucky update

This app used to really help me for my more difficult math homework. Sucks to see that you need to pay for unlimited solutions now.

- Stupid update

Why should people have to make an account to use ANY features in the app? It's unnecessary, it's just inconvenient for people looking for quick solutions.

- Money

Why would you make it so you have to pay? This is garbage

- Please read and reconsider the paying option

In the past this app was completely free. Before one could find out all the steps for free and that’s why this was my favourite app because it taught me what my teachers failed to do. Now, as a student in high school I have to pay to be shown the true steps. I can’t afford that. I know you guys need to make profit but can’t you just allow all users to access what we were once able to and create additional benefits that paying members could use. For example maybe videos explaining concepts, worksheets, voice activated (user saying the equation) maybe even personalized learning. Thank you for taking the time to read this

- Dissapointed

Was the only math app that worked for me, until you added the monthly pay feature. My exam is in 4 days and this is a huge let down, I considered paying until I saw it was $12.99 a month.. which is so ridiculous. At least make it cheaper


Before,you could use this without paying.Yall are disgusting making students pay.I would rate this 0 stars if I could!Dissapointed

- Don’t mind paying...but...

Don’t mind paying in dollars ... the app is very good. But exploiting our personal information for further gain (and compromise to customers) makes it too costly. Not acceptable. Deleted.

- Amazing

This has helped so much cuz math is tough

- Great

I’m a lazy as all hell and this is great for long questions I don’t even know how to calulste without this app

- used to use it all the time

before the new update where u gotta pay for premium features i used this so so much, but now that there’s not only features that are only unlocked by paying but on top of that there’s so many ads it’s so annoying. if there were just ads and it was fully unlocked with all the features that wouldn’t be a big deal but the fact that i now can’t access certain things that i kinda really need, but now ads keep popping up, just going to use a different app at this point tbh :/

- Advertising

There are now a unbearable amount of ads in the app making it nearly impossible to use,and worthless. The five star reviews were only relevant about a year ago when there were no advertisements.Also for an app used to help educate,in my opinion, the ads are simply unacceptable, and distracting. There are other apps similar and superior download those instead!

- so disappointed

really can’t believe that they took out the explanation feature and now are making you pay for it! absolutely not we’re all students trying to learn and this is really taking away from that. very disappointed

- Ads and fees

First y’all added fees, then this yearly/monthly subscription. Why can’t I get math help in peace? Thanks a lot for the past few years of uncharged services. Now I will be crying as I try to solve the math on my own from now on.

- Greedy and no longer helpful

The service that they used to give you for free, is no longer there they overcharge for it and therefore their app is no longer useful.

- Has exams really soon and is very stressed out

Are you seriously trying to charge us 12.99/ month! This app has helped a ton of students and we all loved this app because it explained the steps, and now you’re trying to charge us 12.99 a month

- dont download this

seriously, we’re all in school we can’t use this anymore cause we’re broke. unbelievable

- WTH is this?!?! Photomath Plus?! Excuse me?

I was gonna rate this 5 star before this update because it was literally the BEST math app I could use in my whole entire life but now, oh no! You lose it! It wasn’t like this before 😭. Before was amazing like it even tell me the steps and explain in it in details like how to do it and it was free. But now you have to pay money for that??? Ok that is 💯 not fair 😡. Sorry to say this but it seem like the WORST math app I could ever use now. With this plus plus money thing 😭😡🤬

- The update is trash

I mean I would've of given this 5 stars if you guys didn't have this plus thing. But now you need to pay money to get the explanation. Thanks for the help 🖕🏻

- Annoying update

This was a great app until this new update came along. Dare to say incredible before the update 🤬

- Great app but now need to pay to see full work

I like the app and I was using it for a while now, however, I’m strongly against the new notion where users now need to pay to see the steps. I don’t understand why there aren’t any advertisements instead! That would be much more fair, and will also attract more people as well.

- Literally a trash can

Garbage this app is the worst horrible his mom doesn’t love him Just trying to bring the reviews down😊

- Ugh

I had to pay! horrible

- I’m not paying

Get rid of the pay for explanation

- New update really sucks

The new update made this app worse. First many of the buttons are blocking the view of the solutions of questions. And most importantly, some questions you can only view a graph for and can’t simplify the problem anymore which is really annoying since now I can’t simplify many equations that could have been done before the update.

- Horrible

This app is only good if you’re doing math at a 6th grade level. Download “Mathway” if you want an app that’s actually helpful for higher level math

- Don’t make it payware!!

Hey Photomath, please, I’m begging you, don’t make this app payware! This is the only app that helps me get at least 60% in maths... It’s helping me a lot since a few years.. I don’t even have a credit card to pay the 4$ per month, I’m not that old.. Maybe you could put a Donate button or ads or whatever, but for the love of god, don’t make it payware.. Please...🙁

- greedy

Downgraded the app after the new update, nice try greedy devs

- bring back free Photomath

No one wants to pay 4 dollars a month just do learn how to do math, this was originally designed to help us understand, I would give it a five star because it was free before but now this new 4 dollars a month crap is jus terrible , bad move developers

- Love it!

It’s such a great homework helper and really good to check work!

- Just stop

Before this update I would have given this app 5 stars but now not even a chance. I DO NOT want to pay to get math calculations. Especially when I can do the same on the internet. Just stupid!

- Ehy

Why would they make you pay

- Best math app ever!

This is the best app for math ever! It explains step by step, so you know what you're doing, it can give alternate answers to your question, and best of all, it's FREE to calculate fractions (hear that calculator?) Maybe some people do, but I don't mind to use my email, just so as long as I am using this app. A great idea would be to include word problem solving, because it will really help people like me and a multiple choice part too! Thanks for making this app!😊

- Nice update

Amazing rework of the app, well done! :p this app is very usefull, try it out!

- Why do we have to pay to use

This is the most stupid update I’ve ever seen whoever thought of it just ruined the entire app nobody is gonna pay to check if there answer is right lol. App deserves negative stars now good job idiots time to find a new app

- I used to like it

I’ve used Photomath for a long time but I’m extremely annoyed that I’m forced to register in order to use the app. I do not want to add my email and there is not an option to avoid that.

- What happened?

I’ve used this app for years and now it updates so you have to pay? Really disappointing considering almost every teacher I’ve had has suggested this app. I understand that money is an important factor in making apps but I imagine you could use advertisements like other apps? This used to be a grade A app for students and it is quite disappointed that making money has been chosen over the learning of young students everywhere.

- Don't take the latest update For the newly redesigned calculator.

You are now required to login to email, Facebook, Google or Snapchat to be able to see the breakdown of the calculation, 😡.

- You have to pay

Was a really great app that I’ve been using for over two years but now you have to pay for step by step which really sucks

- Sign in?! Really?!

Why do people need to sign in to solve a math problem?! Seems like the “newly redesigned calculator” was a way to pass that on people’s phones. Very dishonest.

- A lifesaver

All the math I’ve don’t on here was accurate. This app is a literal lifesaver especially for my grade 11 university level math

- Review

This is a great app with a lot good ways to help you. It has a calculator with a lot of confusing things on it. But the most important thing of all is the camera that lets you take a math problem and turn it into a solution with a shot of a picture. It shows a solution with steps showing how it got there. I think this app is great! ( if ur reading this then this app is really great, if u wonder why I’m so enthusiastic then here’s a story to tell to your son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter. So this one day I played video games with my friend and then I got off videos to go to bed. Now I’m here bored as hell writing this review and probably going to bed in 3 2 1.) To everyone who reads this have a great rest of the year. This app is great!

- This is AMAZING!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️

Although some people argue that people only use it to cheat, that is completely incorrect. This app does wonders for students who struggle in math, or for those like me, who want to get high grades(it can be used to check your problems). It explains things amazingly, and I love that it shows multiple methods to solve problems. If your child(or anyone who might concern you) is using this app to cheat, then that is their mistake, not the developers’. This app has saved me in math and has helped me get a 97 in algebra. If you don’t like it, then don't use it! It’s not that hard! Just press the delete button. But overall, i wish I could give this app higher than a 5 star rating. It’s deserves it.

- App of the century

I’m good at math, but every once in a while I get stuck on one that’s impossible and my whole class will get wrong. Well let me tell you my friends, things have changed. No longer will I spend hours stressing over that one problem. No longer will I have anxiety to tell my honors algebra teacher why I don’t have an answer for it. I downloaded this app a while back when it was in early development and I have to say, I was slightly disappointed by the limited problem solving abilities but tonight I decided to download it again and it simplified an operation of radicands! The world has been blessed by an app such as this and I strongly advise anyone who has difficulty with math to download it.

- Small criticism+suggestion btw im not a hater

I used to rely on this app alot to help me get through most solutions, but with online school rolling around due to covid 19 i would really also like that subscription you gave away to another reviewer. But another suggestion id like for you to add (and if thats gonna require another subscription, send me one for that too), and that is for you to have the ability to take photos of WORD problems (bc whenever i tried to do it with this app before i mysteriously deleted it, whenever i took photos of word problems it would mistake them for algebraic/variable letters). To close out my review, while i do have some suggestions and criticisms, im not a hater, so have these 5 stars.

- It was so good I went out of my way to review it.

Most apps that are good you just say oh that’s good or when it pops up you just rate it 5 stars. But this app is so ridiculously great that I went out of my way to write this review. When it comes to just giving you an answer to a problem your in a rush to solve it’s perfect, accurate, and fast. But not only that, it walks you through step by step how to solve it and mentions the concepts used so you can further learn. If you choose not to use to photo function it is a perfect graphing calculator as well. And to top it all off, the fact that it is free shows the character of these app developers who are caring geniuses. Kudos to them and this app.

- Liars looking to rip you off!

If I could give this app no stars I would! This company is a liar! I’ve had this app for over a year and used it to help my children with their homework. Well with this recent update now the app is useless. It’s just a regular calculator. What makes this company liars you ask? Well in the description it basically says it still gives the step by step process to the answer. It doesn’t! Now you have to pay for the tutorial for step by step. It’s freaking $10 per month or $60 annually! Good deal some would say but it should be in the description, a warning letting you know the basic app is really just another calculator. A description saying this will now be an in app subscription only service. If I purchase it I can only use on one device. I can’t actually share with my now older children to check their work! It’s separate! What else will this company do to rip its customers off?

- Prices ruined the app

This app used to be great. Until they became money hungry. I would spend a few bucks on this no problem, but they decided to make a subscription. This has ruined the app and instead of being unique and more helpful, it became more useless and more of a cheating tool than a learning tool. Now it is like almost every other calculator where it tells you the answer, but for a few bucks a month we will provide some help. I would probably buy it if it was a cheap one time purchase. Unfortunately not everyone has the money to pay a lot per month or year. This has completely ruined Photomath and took away its uniqueness making it seem like a money hungry app. Why pay 9.99 a month when you can make a small payment for a regular calculator. And it’s a one time purchase. This app has been ruined for me and now I barely use it now because now I don’t get help I just get answers.

- App has become a scam

Ive used Photomath for I don’t know how long, but it’s been years I’ve used this app. I’m in college now and the app has but subscriptions and prices on everything. I got this app to be able to help me get through steps that I don’t understand, photomath has always been my last option when the teacher doesn’t explain the material enough and now I’m just using a normal calculator. I can understand why you might need to put prices to help support the people that run this app, but it seems the people running the app has gotten greedy. As if you guys see that a lot of people are using your app so let’s add a price to use it. I mean nobody is using this MATH app, to just simply get an answer. You always have to show your work with math, so I don’t think the app should have taken that option away. There are mainly little kids using this app, and you want to take money from them ? Doesn’t make sense.

- Thank Goodness

My son was struggling on an Algebra 2 honors math area and was just up against it. I asked if I could help and he said no Dad I don’t think you can, well he was correct from the sense of solving the problem. I remembered this app I down loaded years ago to help my daughter in 9th grade. Broke it out and within about 1 minute I was able to scan the problem and then solve the equation for him. He responded with that’s not the way I need to solve the problem. Thankfully I noticed solve in other ways solve by completing the square was an option. He mows happy as it seemed to me he just didn’t know where to start solving the problem and now he is able to solve the rest. Great app in my book.

- Probably the most math app I've used

Math is my weakest subject and I struggle with tutoring and learning the subject for years. Since I did started using it I would scan more example problems to learn and remember how problems look like and how they're solved. Usually by the time I get to the homework I've learned what to do to do it.i use the app afterward to check my work and get credit in class. This helps a lot of hard algebra questions that normally I'd wait until the next class session to ask how it's done or struggle figuring out the harder questions. By the time I scan those it shows me and highlights what I need to do and those I end up highlighting for the study guides. I love it so much

- The best app of all time

I downloaded this app yesterday. When u first tried out the camera, it was excellent. It can read anything except for custom math problems in math books. When I have trouble with my math homework and nobody can help me, I check over my math and when I get it wrong, it can tell me step by step how to do it. The only problem is I’m in 5th grade, and sometimes the way they explain the way to solve the work, I can’t understand what it means. There is also something that when I do step by step solutions, there are some steps that just don’t show, and I have no clue what it means because it skips steps. Besides that, it is an amazing app and I highly recommend it.

- Outstanding app!

Photomath is an amazing app that is one of the best math tools I have ever used. I usually don’t write reviews but I just had to for this one. It has EVERTHING a mathematician needs in any form possible from a calculator to picturing taking for any equation you can think of to graphing answer. I love this app is because it gives you accurate step by step solutions to all problems and clearly explains everything you need to know about the equation. The best part is that it’s FREE! Most of the other math tools you have to pay for and you don’t really know what you’ll get from it. Take it from me that you will be very impressed by using Photomath. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself!

- All-around amazing!

While the 16yr old me would’ve LOVED this to hang through my math homework as quickly as possible, now that I’m going back to college at 37 after 20 yrs in the corporate world, this app is AWESOME if you truly want to understand what you’re a doing and WHY, step-by-step. I’ll DEF be using this over & over to help me through my homework when we’re working on sections of material that I don’t remember doing in high school, or that I am having trouble with. I used to LOVE math- this is the first time I’ve ever struggled with any of it... SO grateful to have this to help bridge the gap in knowledge, as I’m the type that likes to think, study & figure things out myself in a quiet spot. This is an introvert’s dream!


So I was on the reviews on storacic or how ever you spell it and then I saw somebody say “use photo math “ and then I used it and it was the WORST when I wanted to see the steps of the equation they just kept asking me about Snapchat, Facebook, I don’t care about that it’s a math app and they want access to my apps now I’m not saying don’t use it but it’s a bad app and I wouldn’t suggest anyone use it . It’s just actually rude on how in school they give you math problems that you can’t understand and then get mad or you get held back and stress about math when it’s easy but they make it hard but if you understand it that’s good but if you don’t it’s okay that doesn’t make you stupid because you don’t understand something that just mean you just need to learn more and you will get it and learn it better 🦋💚💙 but this is unacceptable that they ask for your Snapchat, Facebook like just be a math app that’s what you are

- I haven’t used this yet.

I gave this a 3 star review because I haven’t used this app yet. But from the reviews I am very excited to use this to help my son out come the start of school. I am very old fashion when it comes to having my kids do things the old way, but with how the world is now everything is moving at a fast pace with technology involved & I am not always going to be up to date on things & if I can help my child understand their math (NOT CHEAT) I will. There is a difference between them using this as a cheat to do homework and having this to explain problems and figuring it out so they can grasp the concept of the problem to keep moving forward with math instead of being stuck on one problem. Again, I can’t wait to use this and write another review on this.

- I have to pay for an explanation now?

I love this app because it makes solving problems so much simpler and has very in depth explanations for every single step. Now, when I don’t know how to do a problem, in order to learn, I now have to pay? This is some real dirty way to get money. Granted, LOTS of people utilize this to cheat on work, but for a lot of people, it’s used for actually learning how to do math. I can’t believe that for so long it was free and now I’m being charged? Learning shouldn’t be something you have to pay for. Because I’m being charged, for $60 a year? Like how many people can actually afford that? By doing this, you are preventing people who can’t pay some outrageous price from learning. I’m super disappointed that this is even a thing and now, this app is completely useless. Unless you get rid of this stupid trick for money, rather than ads? I will no longer be supporting this app.

- Photomath Saved My Honors Algebra 2 Grade ✊🏼

For a lot of the homework, the examples shown when we learned the topic weren’t anything close to the homework problems. Photomath worked like a charm every time, and I was able to learn more about the topic and different ways it would be used in the future and actually understand all the steps of it. Especially now, with there being less opportunities and times for me to talk to my teachers and ask them on certain parts, I’m able to learn what I need to much faster and quicker. Mind you, I don’t have Photomath Plus (I might get it in the future though). Photomath is seriously amazing and the people who made it are god sent 😌

- Not Every Hero Wear Capes

I don’t know where to start from. I would like to start from the cons, but oh man, I wish there was any cons. Matter of the fact, this app will have you thank its developer every time it solves the equation for you. I wouldn’t want to go deeper into this, but this app is an essential, but not a want, to every college student who happen to come across an algebraic class. It doesn’t only saves you time, but it shows explanations that can be way understandable and helpful. I wish for the future from the developers of this amazing app to create the similar concept of the app but sections in geometry not only algebra-based. Just a though that could extend the idea of this app.

- Homework

Photomath has been a big help to me in 7th and 8th grade with my maths home work and one of the things that I like about it is that it explains how they got the answer. If you are having a hard time with your math work I highly recommend this app. I will be using this in the future as well. Another great thing about this math app that others don’t have is that with this one you can take a photo of the math problem and you don’t have to type it out. This year my phone stopped working so my grade in math dropped because I didn’t get all of my work done because I didn’t understand some of it and these are just some of the treasons why I like photomath.

- Revolution Of Technology

If I had one word to describe this app it would be extraordinary. This helps me from my day-to-day life with my math homework. As a middle school student, it’s hard for me to get my work done because there is so much of it to do! All I have to do is go on this app, it tells me the answers! Most people would consider it cheating, but if it tells me how it’s done, and I understand it. Then guess what? It’s as if I did it without the app. This app really helps me, and I’ve recommended it to 6 people already, and I just wont stop. If you’re reading this to see if you’d like to download this app, stop reading and download it. It’s worth the small space in your device.

- Recommend

I have been using this for about 3 to 4 months now it has the majority of the questions that I ask and it’s able to help me understand my homework and things that I need to complete in school and out of school I think it is great app overall there are definitely some questions or problems that they should be able to answer but don’t but also at the same time it is a free app so I think it does good considering it’s free and it’s a great overall that it really gets the job done and helps me out with my homework it’s like a free little math tutor I definitely recommend this app to anyone who needs help or does not understand a math problem 👍🏼😄

- Great

Photomath is great for scanning large problems quickly (not having to type them in) and solving problems you can’t just google. Not only this, but it takes you through the steps with explanation on how to progress. In most situations, If you’re stuck on a problem, you have to write it all out just to search for 20 minutes and not find anything. With photomath all you have to do is take a picture, get the answer, and some help. The app is programmed to know just about everything, even I haven’t run into problems with it once in the past year. If you’re hesitant about getting it, please do. You won’t regret it.


I found this from using Snapchat and this doesn’t really count as cheating for me because I check my answers with it and learn the steps if I’m confused. I’m so glad there are apps like this that are made because it has every option for ways to solve or put in a different form. It gives you many options on what you want to do with the equation. I really like how it doesn’t just give you the answer and it shows you the steps in words and numbers and if you don’t understand it tells you why that step is taken. Very well made app and I’m so grateful to have help in math especially as it gets harder with each coming year.

- Good app, but

This app is phenomenal. This app has helped students across the globe in getting through tough questions or checking their work. However, now we can’t get the explanation to why you did a step for free? I get you are growing and need money, but now you just took away the ability for students to see why you did something? At this point it’s just giving them the answer without thorough explanation. And parents that don’t know about this app might think they use it to cheat and won’t get it for them. If you want to make a subscription service here, don’t put it on something that everyone uses and relays on the app for.

- Speechless🤭

wow. i have never had an application help me much as photomath. i am going into my freshman year of high school and i have been using photomath for about a year now. i enjoy algebra. i really do. but when i don’t understand something that is being thought to me and only by tedious repetition will i learn it, i get irritated and upset. this is better than i could have asked for to help me with algebra. i take a picture of the problem and even though it doesn’t explain how to do the steps if you don’t want to pay 10$/mo, it still walks you through the steps of the math problem for free. sure, it’s no tutor, but it’s a life saver. thank you photomath!

- Used to be great

This app was awesome, but now it’s super cumbersome and annoying. (I never write reviews, so it took a lot of frustration for me to write this one.) First of all, why do we have to pay a subscription to see the detailed steps and explanations for solving now? And why are the ads so prevalent to the point where they get in the way? There should not be a charge for what used to be free, and the ads should be a bar at the bottom of the app, and maybe larger at the bottom of each solution. It should NOT be taking up your entire screen and making you accidentally click on the link each time it pops up. It makes your app clunky, difficult to navigate, and the entire process much slower. It makes me not want to pay and just check out other apps that are less of a money-grab.

- It’s good but there’s a flaw

I’m a student in school using this app and it’s really helpful! But sometimes when taking the picture it says it can’t solve the problem when you can perfectly see it. I find it annoying to take another picture. And the answers may be incorrect or doesn’t show another answer if there is one. If that’s confusing it means like sometimes in problems there’s two or more answers. Only sometimes. And it doesn’t show the other answer. Or isn’t really thorough with their explanation so I have to ask an adult for clarification. A good thing is it shows the math of it. That’s all. In conclusion it’s helpful but has little flaws. I hope this review helps some people :)

- Lifesaver

I’m in Calculus this year. It’s the first time I’ve ever struggled with a math class, and this app was recommended to me. At first my mom was worried that all it did would show me the answer. But she and I were both pleasantly surprised with it. The app can do many functions, and it shows you how to do it step by step. I’ve been using it to help me with limits at the moment, and I really wasn’t expecting it to be able to do that. It’s super helpful with my homework and shows me how to do things. The only problem I’ve had with it is that it doesn’t know how to do all functions, but that’s not often. Would definitely recommend for students :)

- This is honestly so amazing

In my opinion, this is the best math app ever. I’ve never found anything as good as this. It’s much better than the other apps. The camera easily picks up the equations you present it. The answers are always correct (from what I’ve seen). It shows you step by step how to solve it, and it goes into even more depth to explain it - if you want it to. Photomath is very useful and a reliable source for math. You can use this app to compare your work to, teach you how to solve things, and just use its as a “cheat sheet” - which most peope probably do😂. Photomath has helped me a lot in better understanding the math I’m learning. I 100% recommend this app!

- Not just a calculator

When some people think about Photomath what comes to mind is a smart and advanced calculator for cheating. This isn’t the case at all. Photomath has helped me countless times on understanding and learning the subject, not just finding the answer. During the online classes it’s very hard for me to understand what the math teacher is taking about and Photomath is basically a second teacher. Right now I’m relearning radicals from last year bc the teacher didn’t successfully teach it to us effectively last year and Photomath is great for helping me understand the process and preparing me for geometry next year. Thanks Photomath, positive thoughts only!

- Photomath has revolutionized studying math

Photomath has made it accessible to learn most math equation on a personal level, meaning it will help you understand the particular equation you’re looking for. My professor has assigned me many problems to study for my exam, answers to which were not as helpful in the textbook. Photomath has explained part by part the particular equations that I had for my exam by simply taking one photograph. I can’t explain how grateful I am for this app and how amazing the people who created it must be. Due to it’s help I have managed to get very good grades for my exams. Thank you for creating this, worth every penny if you choose to use Photomath Plus! ❤️❤️❤️

- Love this app!!! :)) (edit: but...)

This app is so quick and easy to use! I don't even have to type out the problem because it scans it so quickly. If I need help with anything it can break down the problem for me. 10/10 would recommend this app!! Edit: Ok this app is absolutely amazing however I really dislike the fact that the flash light feature was removed because I find myself trying to scan a problem and it will not scan even if there is a lot of lighting. It also has a hard time focusing so I really hope that it will be fixed soon but other than that this app has been a lifesaver!

- Really Great App For Help

I downloaded Photomath got to check my problems at the start but ever since math has been getting harder for me, I’ve started using it to show me how to do the work, and the best part it that I get them right and now I can understand how to do these problems more efficiently! It’s really good to just review some problems you don’t know, I sometimes would use it for studying before tests. The great part about this now is that I can connect my textbook and it can help me with textbook related questions! If anyone needs help with math work or a parent needs a way to explain to their children how to do problems, this is the app to go!!

- So great, can help with almost anything.

I personally love this app, and have for a while. Everything is free, and works great. Sometimes when scanning a problem if the writing isn’t clear it might mix things up, so just use the calculator part when this happens. I would like for the app to solve word problems, but I recognize that would be hard to do. But overall excellent app. Saved me from failing math class when I didn’t understand the math. My personal favorite part is how it will give you a play by play of how to solve the problem you scan. I taught my sister long division with it. Would totally recommend. Thanks so much Photomath!


I neverrrr write reviews so that’s how you know this app must’ve really helped me. So during our time out of school because of COVID19 ( I’m in 10th grade btw)I was assigned 40+ math assignments, plus my five other classes which I had multiple assignments due. And usually when I’m at school I like that I’m able to ask the teacher for help to clarify things, and since we weren’t at school. It was kind of hard. But after I tried a problem on my own multiple times, and just couldn’t get it, Photomath was extremely useful for giving me the correct answer and clearly explaining how to do the problem. Thank you Photomath!! 10/10 I RECOMMEND 😁😂

- Just what I needed!

Amazing. Truly amazing. A time saver. There is nothing else I've seen that can just take a picture and solve showing steps and rules. It isn't cheating, it’s a tool to verify my child's answers and the work needed to be done. If it differs slightly it shows the different progression using the same Math rules. Shows my young adult there's more than one way to solve a problem using the same rules. Most of the time I solve it correctly, but this saves time and teaches before points are subtracted in nightly HW in case I run out of time. Besides, Math is fun, it just requires time!!! Sometimes we lack time staying up late with so many classes.

- Good until payment arrived

I’ve been using this app for a long time and helped me understand concepts that the teachers failed to do with the worded explanations, but ( of course) it didn’t last long. The exact moment I enter high school the company decides to add a payment method to this app and I was not entirely happy about this( seeing as I’m still 14 and don’t have my own money). Math gets extremely difficult in 9-12th grade and now that you need to pay for explanations just isn’t right, and the thing that enraged me more was the introduction of ads, it used to be ad free but nooooo. Overall I think the company is just ruining the app little by little. Luckily I’m better at math and don’t have to use the app much.

- Was my best friend for math, but now...

Less than year ago, I have downloaded this app to be my math helper. I really enjoyed how design is beautiful and everything, explanations were great too, but, recently when I opened it, scanned one question, looked explanation everything was good until I closed it, an AD showed up for first time. I was ok with it because it’s not very annoying. But then, it got worse, MORE ADS popped up, I was disappointed a little but whatever, when I scanned another question, I needed more deep explanation, when I clicked new button “Why?” I wanted to uninstall app immediately. 10$ every month for in depth explanation? No way. I’m really disappointed because this app was only free without ads in past. Hope you listen to your customers and change something because this is unacceptable.


I recommend getting this app it help so much my teacher doesn’t correct our homework he just care if we done it but I really didn’t wanna do my homework cause I suffer from dyslexia and I don’t understand a thing about my homework. Then I went through a lot of apps to help me every single one of them were either inaccurate or made me pay , well then I came across photomath and to be honest it helped so much all the problems were taught how to do it you didn’t have to pay for it my homework was getting done much faster and my grade was getting bumped up. I truly trust and love this app and I recommend for you to get it:)

- Really Disappointed with account requirement

Photomath has every right to require users create an account to use their product. It is their product after all. However, in this day and age, given the information/privacy crisis we are currently facing, I am just sick and tired of giving away my personal information. I noticed there is an option to link social media accounts to a potential photomath account, which seems strange given the educational nature this app is used for. This app is wonderful at solving problems, and I certainly won’t stop using the app, but I am just sad to see its turn to privacy intrusion.

- Great App I Love It!

At first I struggled to remember topics for a summer packet. I asked my friend and she said "Oh! Use Photomath! It even explains the problems!". So, i downloaded it. When i first downloaded I didn't trust it because I remembered a bit and that's not what my math teacher had said. So, I checked the reviews and I carried on. I am a procrastinator and I don't have the greatest memory so this really helps since I have only one and a half weeks until school starts. I would like it if they made their symbols darker This is because I have to use Negatives and Positives and the negative sign is faded so I got the wrong answer but then, I checked again and saw it and fixed it. I would like if that would be a future update.

- Great but can fix a few things

I really love photo math and I’ve been always using it for algebra homework. I would use it to check my answers or learn how to do it. One thing I would recommend is if the Photo math could convert fractions into a whole number and not still a fraction and if Photomath had the ability to solve word problems. It would also be great if the camera could read the equation more correctly so I wouldn’t have to keep going back and scanning it for so long until it matched up to my equation. Other than that I think this is a great app if your having trouble with your homework. Btw this was an app my friend introduced me to and now all of my friends have this app.

- Free Photomath plus

Like i want to give this app 10 stars because they understand that this virus is getting out of hand and everyone is already struggling and so they give free Photomath plus which i mean isn't a cure but like it is once less thing to worry about I'm a senior who may not have prom or graduation this year and this probably isn't going to fix that but i will graduate with a good math grade and if the little things like that dont make u smile nothing will so like just thank you and definitely get this app and like after the free month of plus is up i might pay for a month or two of plus just to like return the favor ig:))!

- Sis This is freaking amazing

I recommend this to anyone of all ages if you don’t feel like actually trying for your homework or a take home quiz just scan the problem and it won’t just show you the answer but it’ll show you how it solved the math equations so just copy the work the app gives you and easy 100% I’ve been using this for years for homework this is bomb sis and the best part is you know how some math apps charge you a month or yearly or to get “pro features” well this app it’s alllllll free you don’t gotta pay for nothing just take a pic of the equation and bam it does all the work for you and shows all the steps

- Absolutely great!

Okay, this app is absolutely amazing! Definitely the best math app to ever use. People will probably say that is is just another way for kids to cheat, but, if you don’t understand something it gives you instructions on how to solve it, which I thought was a great way to shut up all of the stuck up administrators (not saying that all of them are, though) that say “Cheating is just going to hurt you in the future!” Yeah, like I’ll remember how to do this complicated crap that I’ll never use a month from now anyways. But anyways, this app helps me a lot with equations that I either don’t have time to do or don’t understand.

- Very Convenient

I figured mostly high school students would choose and use this app more because most of the other math problems apps aren’t free, you have to pay monthly to be able to use it. Or worse, finding out the answers but having to pay to look at the steps. I love this app because they understand that mostly high school students don’t have bank accounts and aren’t able to pay for them, so they made this easy to use and you don’t have to pay anything, the app itself I also free. Thank you to whoever made this. You saved our life.(ps: writing this as I’m desperately trying to pass my finals)


Whoever made this app, thank you so much. It has saved me countless late nights trying to figure out what seemed like impossible questions. During remote learning this was my main source of math education because the main curriculum was disrupted and became difficult to understand online. Especially during studying for AP tests I barely had time to complete my math homework but using this it took less than five minutes. I could even use it while taking tests, as my teachers allowed notes and educational resources to be used. Its easy explanations made me catch on fast and has saved my grade countless times!!

- 25yrs then back in math

This app is amazing. I been out of scholastics for 25 years then went back in for my degree. I was a wiz at math algebra, geometry, trigonometry. I could solve most of these in my head back then now I have to have a reminder of how it went. I use this as a tool to know how to do it on the test. I can’t use this app on the test. In addition to that I also tutor the class I am in. I mention this app to all I am tutoring and let them know to use it as a tool because they won’t get to use on the test. It helps most of my class out. I can see how it’s done and then can teach it so thank you for the ease of remembering how it’s done.

- Game Changer

I was really bad at math and almost always waited until the last moment to finish it so I kept using apps like Mathway to finish mu work in time. However with the ads it kept me up all night and I often slept at 1 am trying to do my hw. Sometimes I wouldn’t even finish it and my teachers gave me lower grades because I wasn’t showing my work. I kept looking for hw helper apps and found Photomath. It was quick and easy plus no ads!! It explained problems for free and now I’m able to get by easier and I understand concepts better so now I can finish my work in class without help and at home without help!

- Rigged camera

When I first got this app I loved it. On day 1, it worked amazing and everything, but now it’s broken or something. After a day of having it, it started glitching. I opened the app and upon loading, the camera immediately went out of focus. I got worried cause I thought I somehow damaged my phone cam, but after a bit I switched to my normal camera app to check and it was fine. In the app though, I noticed that upon opening the app the camera works, but it immediately fades out of focus like its doing it purposely and now the app can’t read any of the problems cause they’re so out of focus that it “couldn’t recognize a problem”. I thought this was a glitch at first but I think it’s intentional now cause every time I reload the app, it’s in focus but almost immediately fades out of focus and it’s worse every time I reload it

@Love4Gilga Too bad almost half of the questions are word problems or Photomath says “sorry we don’t know how to do that yet”

sophie is r's fan

i went from getting Ds and Cs in every test, up until 2 months before my gcses hehe but he tutored me and i got an A* so if photomath AND my brain is wrong... questioning edexcel and dad


@leonorleitao__ photomath


@mathep1 @photomath Here’s their reasoning if anyone is curious:


@mathep1 Let’s give Photomath a say in this... trusty Photomath.... If I was being honest, I got 1 at first but now I see the error of my ways-I forgot that the MD part is that you do which ever one first from left to right.


solved my math homework without using photomath, say mashallah
