Step aside WolframAlpha, looks like you've got some competition! PhotoMath is an app that allows you to take pictures of a math problem and solve it for you instantly. It's powered by MicroBlink, a real-time text recognition SDK. It is available for iPhone and Windows phones.
So far the following is compatible:
- Arithmetic expressions
- Fractions & decimals
- Powers and roots
- Simple linear equations
WolframAlpha is a powerful calculator, but it has yet to add a feature like this. Can you image in the future just taking a picture of your math problem and getting it solved step-by-step? I wish this app would have been released sooner when I was first taking algebra. It would have been helpful!.
