Does not work

This doesn’t work. Great idea though. It just scans and scans then you get an error saying it can’t do algebra (regardless of what you type in)

Developer Response ,

Thank you for reporting this bug. It has been fixed in update v2.2.1.

Works great as shown, just remember to allow access to camera.

Works great on my iPad and even better on my 6s. Not perfect but with decent lighting and a good problem, works almost instantly! I'm actually very impressed with the speed once you have a nicely lit typed out problem. The update also helps the visual aesthetic. Works well on printed problems, not really hand written.

Can't do anything with this app unless you purchase the camera option. Don't bother downloading.

Developer Response ,

After you grant access to the camera, you can solve basic math problems as shown in the App Previews for free. A one time upgrade can then be purchased for unlimited use.
