One of the top-ranking educational apps on the App Store is Photomath and for good reasons. It is an AI math solver that can process both basic and complex math equations. Here are some of the math topics Photomath can work on:
- Basic: Arithmetic, fractions, integers, decimal numbers, powers, factors, roots.
- Algebra: Quadratic Equations, linear equations, linear inequalities, logarithms, systems of equations, matrices, polynomials, graphing.
- Trigonometry: Identities, conic sections, vectors, complex numbers, logarithmic functions, sequence, and series.
- Calculus: Limits, integrals, derivatives, curve sketching
- Statistics: factorials and combinations
One of the unique features of Photomath is that it can solve complex math problems without an active internet connection. You can simply take a photo of the problem, or use Photomath’s advanced multi-functional scientific calculator to type out the equation.
You get step-by-step explanations of the problem, as well as exclusive videos on the topic for students to understand. Interactive graphs and alternate problem-solving methods are also found, along with the results.
Whether you are tired of solving complex mathematical equations or in the hurry of submitting an assignment, Photomath works out exceptionally well in such situations.
It is available on the App Store for free, but you can also choose to pay for Photomath Plus subscription, which costs $19.99/month (₹1649 in India). With the subscription, Photomath can show you answers to word problems for selected textbooks in the United States.
Despite Shazam being pretty much the best music recognition app, it is not available in some regions and languages. This is where SoundHound comes in. SoundHound is one of the best music recognition app for iOS and a great alternative to Shazam. It is one of the most top-rated iOS apps in the app store due to its vast array of features.
SoundHound doesn’t only excel in music detection; part of its appeal is also in its handsfree navigation system. If you want, you can say “Hey SoundHound” and give any voice command to navigate through the app. SoundHound also comes with a built-in music player that works pretty well across the board. You can connect your Apple Music and Spotify accounts if you are subscribed and build your playlist within SoundHound. And with that, you can build your playlist according to the music that is playing in your background. If you don’t have Spotify or Apple Music subscription, you can even play music using its built-in YouTube player. It even comes with a notification center widget and a 3D touch option on the app icon for discovering music. You can also sing or hum the music stuck in your head as well, and SoundHound should detect it.
One of the best features of SoundHound is its karaoke-style, realtime lyrics with LiveLyrics integration. You can even use your apple watch to sing along with LiveLyrics and, of course, to identify background music. Cellular-enabled apple watches can do the same as well. But it works even without connecting to an iPhone. SoundHound is an ad-supported app. But you can pay a one time fee of $6.99 (₹549 in India) for SoundHound∞ for an ad-free experience.
