Doing math homework just got easier! A viral video has just been released that shows a new app that seems like the ultimate answer to all students with math as a subject.
PhotoMath, dubbed a “smart camera calculator,” uses a smartphone camera to scan a photo of a math equation in a textbook and display the answer instantly — similar to apps that scan barcodes and takes users to a link on a website. It also seems as if the app will provide step by step instructions on how the problem was solved.
Now we don’t suggest you use this app to cheat with, but use it as a study aid in helping to understand the math problem and how the solution is calculated.
PhotoMath’s parent company MicroBLINK launched the app this week at TechCrunch Disrupt Europe in London, TechCrunch reports. It is available in the App Store on iTunes.
