Not a bad little app to have on hand if your in school or have kids. It has different options to help explain your question. It could use some help with explaining the answers better, some answers are just confusing, but I like that it has any subject, not just math. It has science, history, fiction and many more. It's nice to have and be able to use for free. That's a rare find, free without ads. My 6th grader loves this app. She uses it a lot on her own to help explain her school work better.

I don't like this new version. I love that it automatically captures the text, but I REALLY DISLIKE how the results are displayed. MUCH RATHER the older version in that sense, because the answers popped up automatically and were straightforward and easy to see. Now you still have to sit and search. What's the point? This new version in my opinion downgraded in that sense. I think that a mix between the two would be perfect. Use the old way the answers are displayed with the new text capture.

It's a good start. It gets tripped up by some more advanced topics where more mature engines do not, but I can see that this is a work in progress. The search function doesn't really seem any more useful than a normal Google search for most questions. The voice function is similarly limited. The photo feature is useful, but there doesn't seem to be an option to import photos, images, screenshots, etc from device storage, which is a huge limitation.
