Croatian company Photomath, who are behind the hugely successful app which offers real-time mathematical solutions after taking pics of the problem using a smart phone camera, have this week presented a new version…

Photomath, a smart camera calculator which lets users simply point the phone’s cameras at a mathematical formula – with the answer appearing almost immediately on screen, has been a huge hit since its release two years ago. The app, which is also an educational tool as it shows step by step solutions, has won a number of awards and even topped App Store downloads after it was released.

Photomath have now launched a new version – Photomath 3.0 – which comes with a number of new features. One of the those new features is handwriting recognition. The application has previously been only able to identify printed, typed equations that can be found in textbooks but the 3.0 can now recognise the user’s handwriting when solving mathematical problems. The handwriting recognition option is currently available only on iOS system, but will be available also on Android by the end of next week.

“We have taught a mobile phone to read handwriting. When the camera reads the problem, then the application solves it. As well as providing the solution, the application also displays the steps that were used to come up with a solution”, Photomath Director Damir Sabol told Jutarnji list, adding that the new version has a number of other new and improved features improving the user experience.

Photomath has been downloaded more than 36 million times to date and is often on the list of the most popular educational apps in the U.S.

“Our main objective is to reach students in primary and secondary schools, and taking into account the large amount of users that we want our content localized, and we are planning to introduce more learning methods”, Sabol concluded.
