Cheat Codes: Doing Math

PhotoMath is an app for iOS and Android that scans and solves math problems

Math. It used to be scary… and basically the worst. Now doing math is as easy as framing a picture thanks to one simple app.

OPEN: Hi, I’m Netted’s Senior Editor Charlie Kaplan, and this is Cheat Codes.

INTRO: Okay. What I’m about to tell you is not that you do not need to do math ever again. Hold your horses. Math is good. Math is our friend. What I am going to say is what pops into our head when we say “math”, like long division or Quadratic Equations, is going to get way easier to do. Like, waaaay easier.

How easy? As easy as framing a picture. PhotoMath solves most math problems instantly. So let’s say you see a problem like this. WOOF. Just scan it with your phone’s camera and not only does it spit out the right answer, it also scores extra credit by showing all work, step by step.

Advice for kids: don’t sneak PhotoMath into your exams. Your teacher will know you’re not taking sentimental pictures of your tests, and if nobody knows how to do the type of problems PhotoMath solves, the PhotoMath of the future will never be invented. Woah.

OUTRO: And that’s your cheat code! Later, nerds.
