“PhotoMath currently supports basic arithmetics, fractions, decimal numbers, linear equations and several functions like logarithms. New math is constantly added in new app releases,” says the description of the app on iTunes. The app uses optical character recognition (OCR) technology to read the equation and calculates the answers within seconds.
