There are loads of calculator applications available for Android that allow us to solve maths problems in a simple manner. However, the most complete tool is possibly this Photomath - Camera Calculator, the calculator app that works with the camera of our smartphone.
Solve maths operations with the camera of your phone
How this application works is very simple. Just aim your camera at the operation you want to solve so it can it scan it by means of OCR text recognition technology and will interpret it to offer you an immediate result. The good thing is that not only is it capable of reading printed operations but it can also identify calculations written by hand.
An excellent tool to learn maths.
At the top of the screen, the user can access a menu that offers him access to a manual calculator, to the camera to scan the operation, to the step-by-step solution, and to a notepad that registers all the operations carried out with the application.
These are the main features of this calculator camera:
- Calculator with a built-in camera: solve operations by inputting them manually or using your device's camera.
