The only thing that could save me more is Jesus himself


This app saved me. I was struggling in everything related to algebra. This app not only shows you the answer to fractions, it also shows you the steps to working out. You can't even do what this app does on your phone. Perfect 5 stars. The only way they could make this app better is if they gave the answer in fraction form, word form, and mixed fraction form. I wish I could give this app more than 5 stars because it deserves more. The only in app purchase is a 2$ payment to remove ads, but they really don't bother me that much. I have a feeling I will be using this app all the way through college, and possibly after that. This is the first app in ages I have found that is legit. All of the other apps say they work, but they are actually garbage. Only Jesus could save me more. 5 out of 5, 5 stars, 5 thumbs up, 5 yesseroos, and 5 oh yeahs. Best app on the App Store.

This app is actually pretty hype


Used the website after finding it online when I was looking for help with algebra. I saw a recommendation to download the app, and didn't really want to because I figured it would glitch out, have tons of ads, and require you to pay extra just to do basic things. Boy, was I wrong. Everything is free besides removing ads for two dollars, and they are so non-intrusive that it doesn't even matter anyway. The app works wonders and doesn't just tell you the answers. It details all the work, and while it could do some things better, like having decimal form, fraction form, mixed number form, and maybe even a percent form, it's fine as it is. If they added those things it would be the best math app ever.

Attention Parents !!


If you have a child asking you for help with their homework, and you’d rather not spend a large amount of time digging back in your brain to remember what you learned in algebra years ago, while they are in tears of frustration (just like you used to be when you were a kid), then get this app. Goofy easy to type in an equation and then get the answer, as well as a list of steps on how to get there so that they can do the all important task of “showing their work“ for the teacher the next day....and actually learn!! It WILL save those tears of frustration (your child’s and possibly yours too!) This app is fantastic!!
