Hello! I think by the title you already understood that the application that we will talk about today literally translates as 'PhotoMath' and is a smart calculator with its own chips and goodies. As planned by the developers, you just need to point your iPhone to an example or an equation that needs to be solved, and the application will show the answer …
So, after installing the application and opening it, I saw the question: should the program be allowed to access the camera?, To which of course I answered 'Yes!'. As soon as I did this, an image in a red rectangle opened in front of me. The example that needs to be solved must be inside him.
Further, if he iPhone understood the example, a response and a 'Steps' button will appear. By clicking on it, it will be possible to view in detail the actions in the decision.

As for the menu at the bottom: the first item on the left is the history of calculations, the second is to enable / disable the flash, the third is the actions of the last calculation, and the fourth is to send a photo of the example to the database if it could not be identified.
It seems to me that this is a very important feature that helps developers improve their product, but it would be cool if the user could add solutions to examples and problems himself. Then the application would go to a completely different level, especially in the era of 'Socialization of everything and everyone'.
So far, PhotoMath is the only application of its kind. There is definitely a MyScript Calculator, but handwriting is a little different. In my opinion, the application has a 'right to exist', but not more so far, because as it usually happens: the idea is great, but the implementation is not very good, as while the handwritten text does not recognize at all, and the printed text is 50/50, and then, only examples and equations of grades 4-5.
If the developers manage to finish it, then it will definitely be a MustHav, but for now we can wish the creators good luck!
