I genuinely love this app. mostly because it doesn't just tell you the answer. it breaks it down into steps. if you want a more in-depth explanation you do have to pay for a subscription but it doesn't leave you high and dry either. it just gives a ground level explanation. it can't do word problems, unfortunately, but it can still do lots of numerical problems. i'd definitely recommend this app for math help/problems.

It can't solve most diagram problems, (my main issue). It only gives you the answer and doesn't explain the problem unless you're start the monthly subscription! I payed for one month and it helped me solve simple problems, but the harder problems were not explained clearly in my opinion. It was confusing so I cancelled the subscription and watched YouTube tutorials for free.

If something is not solved/explained as it should, we are very sorry, and we would love to correct this. Would you be able to send us a little more details about the tasks you believe are not solved/explained correctly to Be sure to include a screenshot!

incredibly helpful. i love this app so much, it shows you the answer and the actual solution. this app will be helpful if your school uses a math program like IXL or Deltamath, if you're taking an Algebra class, if you wanna have simplified steps to solve equations, and a bunch of other stuff. i love the matched solutions feature, which isn't great if you're trying to learn, but nice for equations with a long process that i already got plenty of practice on. thank you so much to the developers.
