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.

Very interesting concept. It doesn’t yet really “solve” certain problems, in the way that Microsoft’s Math app does, but it brings up extremely similar examples that one can extrapolate to find a solution. The reference materials (swipe up) look voluminous; I’m excited to dive in and review old math, physics, and science topics that I have almost forgotten.
