Great app, but performance should be better

This app drains the battery and iPhone quickly gets hot while this app is open.

Developer Response ,

Hi, Fortunately, this issue was fixed in the later version of the app. Please update the application via Apple Store and see if it still heats up your device. If it does, please contact us at

Battery drain

The app is perfect! I can finally understand math, but there is one problem. When I take the picture and start solving, the camera stays on. When the camera is on, then the battery will die fast. Please make it so, when you are solving the problem, then camera closes.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. The camera remains in standby mode while you're not using it in order to for the app to work most efficiently. You might have already heard, that your device spends most of its battery when it is launching the apps, and not when the apps are running. That is why Photomath keeps the camera active on standby all the time. You can contact us at if you have any further questions.

Hi! Thanks for reviewing our app. Downloading the app and using our core features (equations and expressions solutions) is still free, so you can scan and get step-by-step solutions at any time. Plus features, as AI tutorials, contextual hints, and word problems, do come at a fee, which helps us continue developing new and helpful ways to learn math for students worldwide.
