Ratings and Reviews


Does not work

This doesn’t work. Great idea though. It just scans and scans then you get an error saying it can’t do algebra (regardless of what you type in)

Developer Response

Thank you for your review. We think it's a great idea too. MathCam works with basic problems; add, subtract, multiply, & divide. It also recognizes and solves mean, mode, median, range and order of operations as shown in the screenshots above. Algebra processing is not included in V2.2.0 but will be added to a future version. Erroneous scans can sometimes occur if the resolution of the screen being scanned is too low or the math problem font is very small. Try zooming the screen to make the math problem bigger and then holding your device further away. This will often work just fine. Double tap the screen to adjust the viewfinder size if you need to.


Works great as shown, just remember to allow access to camera.

Works great on my iPad and even better on my 6s. Not perfect but with decent lighting and a good problem, works almost instantly! I'm actually very impressed with the speed once you have a nicely lit typed out problem. The update also helps the visual aesthetic. Works well on printed problems, not really hand written.


It's ok

It's not the best app but it can do some of the simpler problems. When I tried it could do negatives though.
