School is a lot easier these days thanks to the internet and smartphones. One Windows Phone app in particular will make your basic math homework a breeze. It's called PhotoMath and it solves equations using the camera on your Windows Phone.

With PhotoMath you're able to quickly and easily solve relatively simple math problems. Here are the supported features right now:

  • Arithmetic expressions
  • Fractions and decimals
  • Powers and roots
  • Simple linear equations


You'll also find Live tile support, camera Lens integration and more. When checking equations using PhotoMath you can also display a step-by-step solution so you can understand the process to solve the problem. The video above shows how PhotoMath works - just scan a math problem and watch it get solved in real-time before your eyes!

While you won't be using PhotoMath in your calculus class, it could come in handy in checking your homework when you're in algebra. Download this free and handy tool and let us know what you think!
