Doesn’t work 1/5
I’ve been trying to input a simple derivative problem for about 15 minutes to test it out. I have an iPhone 6 Plus and am in good lighting but it constantly says that I need to check camera quality and lighting. It does not work.
Was questioning and skeptical at first then after using had realized wat a great tool and advantage it is 👍👍
Requires a colon for piece wise functions, doesn't have a colon. 1/5 1/5
Include what we need to input the bloody functions
Customer Service 1/5
By Keen one
In my opinion, the support team could use a bit of training.
Great Math App!! 5/5

Inconsistent with the website. 2/5
By Rhys Griffith
This app to me is a verification tool to see if you have your equations and answers correct. All I can do is check my answers or look at the process. But what I like about Symbolab is their website: I like how you can train, quiz and test yourself with math problems there. I only wish this app would also do that. That’s what we really need. That’s why it’s inconsistent.
By Record Minecraft Person
I love this app
The LCD 3/5
Tia app is very helpful to me, but it does not have all math symbols such as LCD (least common Denominator)
Can I not use the website? 1/5
How do you give the answer but not any steps? Where is the 6 month trial? You guys are stingy
Don’t get this. 1/5
If you want something that can do this and more for free and doesn’t look like trash? Try Socratic. You don’t need to pay $7.00 to “unlock” the whole point of downloading the app. In Socratic you don’t pay for anything. I hope you made the right choice.
Sharp Knife. Dull People. 5/5
If you frequently miss school and need something to walk you through a couple of problems to teach you the lesson this app is well worth the subscription cost. For those who just like to know if they're getting the answers right when their teacher assigns only even numbered problems this app is perfect. Many of the low star reviews seem like people who did not try very hard to enter their problem correctly.
Waste of time 1/5
Literally the biggest waste of time, the app only knows a few equations so if you want to put in your own equation you will not get results. I’m here to warn you if you disregard this and get the app anyway it’s your own fault that you wasted 20 minutes of your life on this retarded app
By Hat lincolngdj
Most horrible app don’t stall it!😡😡😡😡
Great for coach potatoes with heavy calculates like me....
Why would I pay to use a calculator?
Can't handle exponential expressions 1/5
Downloaded this as a last resort for a problem I just couldn't figure out. Unfortunately it didn't give me the type of answer for the problem I was trying to solve. Had one job, failed. Wouldn't purchase for 99 cents much less a whole 7 dollars.
Make an app for the Apple Watch 4/5
I use this app a lot and I really like it, I really want to have the app on the Apple Watch
would be cool if it showed work, go get photomath it shows steps for free
By Miss Imformative
This app won’t give you back your money! I accidentally paid $6.99! The settings are absolutely horrible because I cannot find a way to get some of my money back!
By Robert Catan
If you’re in high school this won’t help you much. I was getting values for an equation that weren’t quite right. Put the equation in here to see if the problem was the equation’s set up or my math. This can’t even solve it. Given that precalc is an option on this app, if should be capable of solving exponential functions.
Pls read before purchase 3/5
By Sicotic Scorpion
This is really a great app. I’m in perfect light right now and it’s telling me that it can read the problem bc of lighting etc.
Every time I try accessing the camera, the app crashes.
App DOES NOT Support Family Sharing 1/5
I downloaded this app to help my child with Algebra.
UPON READING THE APP’S DESCRIPTION FIRST: I paid the “one-time $6.99 fee to see all steps, to save problems and hide ads”. My child went to the family sharing protocol and downloaded the app that I have. The app is now asking her to purchase the viewable steps, download problems and hide ads for $6.99”!!!!
BUY IT TWICE?!
You already have my $6.99 ... you’re not getting ANOTHER $6.99 outta me. That’s just dumb. Who’d pay TWICE for the same thing??
I feel this falsely advertised the Family Sharing option and is a scam.
Not happy at all.
Bad app. 1/5
I regret spending my money on this app. It doesn't give you decimal
Love this app.. helps me a lot
Not a free app 1/5
This app provides nothing that you can’t get for free online. As of writing this review it just gives you the runaround until you subscribe to the paid version. Not worth a download.
wouldn't recommend this
Better than photo math because....... 5/5
By Try it free
Can solve complex number problems😍
Life changer for 3 years 5/5
This is amazing and with the extra features for an extra price. I have enjoyed this app for 3+ years now!
just use wolframalpha. it's 10c better
Trying to be fair 3/5
By Jacob Imedude
For the free version:
PROS: it works. The user interface is fine. For the questions it's willing to answer, it's answers them well. It doesn't crash your phone.
NITPICKS: The keyboard is... serviceable. It's a bit cramped, and two of the bottom rows have four different 3-page scrolling things (it's difficult to describe because of how weird it is). I can't give it too much grief for that, given how much more space a regular keyboard has over a smartphone. If you want big buttons on a calculator, get a TI-84 or something. Also, it can't do indeterminate forms? Maybe? If it can, I can't figure out how.
In the FREE VERSION:
• Ads. Every time you solve an equation, you get an ad.
• You don't get to see the steps, unlike on the website. It's a small thing, but it's significant.
• It doesn't work offline. If this is a free version only issue, then that's fine. But something tells me it isn't. You aren't downloading a calculator, you're downloading a thing that grabs the answer from an online source. That, or its to make sure Symbolab gets that sweet ad revenue.
If only one or two of these cons were present, I wouldn't have even written a review. It's the combination of all three that really grinds my gears.
- In app, it says that the $7 paid version is a "one time purchase." However, I've seen multiple recent reviews claiming that it's "$7 per month." If true, then the app straight up lies to you.
EDIT: Developer, thank you for responding! That's more rare than it should be. Your response, plus the confirmation that the premium version is a one time purchase is good news, and adds a star.
However, you haven't clarified the issue of wether or not the app will work offline in the premium version. It's a minor issue, but I feel it's worth the clarification.
too hard to find the calculator u need
Upgrade required to see steps to solve 1/5
By Abigail Freely
One aspect of this program on the web was that it allowed you to view the steps involved in solving a problem. The app will only allow you to see the steps for a $6.99 fee. What is even more annoying is that it says "to see all steps advertisement free..upgrade." But there is no choice to see the steps free with advertisements! Terrible!
Worst app. 1/5
First off; they force you to use their IOS application. Understandable, but I'd like to be able to use the website WITHOUT the app. Please; if you listen to feedback, fix this.
Not very helpful 1/5
Sure it’ll give you the answer easily, but you have to pay in order to see the steps to understand how it was solved. What a crock.
Stupid ads 1/5
Ads are too annoying when you are trying to make a quick calculation
This app has been a lifesaver! It's easy to use and has full explanations. Much better than any other app I've tried!
One of the most frustrating apps I have ever used 1/5
The user interface is an absolute pain to navigate as well as in inputting questions.
Paid $7 for the steps and it literally just repeated the problem. I can't click the graph and see what points are graphed. Kind of hard to see exactly the plot points when you having it going to 50 in 10 squares.
Great calculator! 4/5
Works great, only downside is you have to pay $7.00/month if you want to see the steps in solving the problem. At least it gives the answers for free. I'm happy my teacher doesn't make me show my work!
Really useless 1/5
Very tedious and not at all easy to use.
It was better before 2/5
You used to be able to see the solution before and not just the answer. In order to see the solutions, you are now required to upgrade. Shame.
Best app ever i know
It gives answer. 2/5
Why does it it she the steps like online on a computer.
Not the best 1/5
There are plenty more apps just like this that SHOW THE STEPS AND DON'T ASK FOR $6.99. Also there are a ton of ads.
By Melanin Goddess😘
It's ok but it doesn't help with all of pre-calculus, just easy questions
It's a lifesaver. 5/5
Paid the fee to see the steps. It's really getting me through my Algebra class in college. Thank you!
Impossible to read user interface. Can't even enter a sample to see if it works without being asked for a $7 upgrade. Crap
