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.

Best math app ever!


This app is very significant, for so many reasons! What is great about this app is first of all you can literally enter any math equation you have and it will solve it. But the really amazing thing that makes this app so wonderful, is that is actually will show you step by step and break it down, to how they got the answer. On my math homework, if i get an answer wrong, the teacher will tell you the correct answer and that is it. So i would never understand how to fix my mistakes. But when i found this app, i could enter the math problems i got wrong and figure out how to solve it step by step. This app is really amazing!!
