The only thing that could save me more is Jesus himself

This app saved me. I was struggling in everything related to algebra. This app not only shows you the answer to fractions, it also shows you the steps to working out. You can't even do what this app does on your phone. Perfect 5 stars. The only way they could make this app better is if they gave the answer in fraction form, word form, and mixed fraction form. I wish I could give this app more than 5 stars because it deserves more. The only in app purchase is a 2$ payment to remove ads, but they really don't bother me that much. I have a feeling I will be using this app all the way through college, and possibly after that. This is the first app in ages I have found that is legit. All of the other apps say they work, but they are actually garbage. Only Jesus could save me more. 5 out of 5, 5 stars, 5 thumbs up, 5 yesseroos, and 5 oh yeahs. Best app on the App Store.

You’ve changed...

How could you do this Math Papa? Since the 7th grade you have helped me survive the endless math homework that was forced upon me, giving me the answer that I needed and the work that went along with it. You were my friend, a great companion for all things math related. But when school rolled around this year, you try to start charging me for the “how to do” part. Why is this? You are a CALCULATOR that was so heavily depended on by many students suffering through their math. And now all of a sudden you get all greedy and take one of the few hopes that we have and pull it out of our grasps. Yes some people might be able to pay for this minor inconvenience and yes you need a way to make a living, but this is not the way. People like me can not and will not pay for certain things like this, having to pay 10 dollars a month for the step by step guide is ridiculous. I’m still keeping the app for a quick conversion here and there, but that’s about it’s good for now. To those who are looking for a free and far superior app, check out Photomath. How could you Math Papa, you’ve changed for the worse...

Dear LBHurd, So glad you enjoyed our step by step homework help and found MathPapa to be a trusty math companion! Yes our prices are slightly higher than your usual “math app.” We've done a lot of work on the app since you first downloaded it. We take extraordinary time and care to craft our explanations and clean design so you can learn and understand your homework with minimal frustration.

This app is actually pretty hype

Used the website after finding it online when I was looking for help with algebra. I saw a recommendation to download the app, and didn't really want to because I figured it would glitch out, have tons of ads, and require you to pay extra just to do basic things. Boy, was I wrong. Everything is free besides removing ads for two dollars, and they are so non-intrusive that it doesn't even matter anyway. The app works wonders and doesn't just tell you the answers. It details all the work, and while it could do some things better, like having decimal form, fraction form, mixed number form, and maybe even a percent form, it's fine as it is. If they added those things it would be the best math app ever.
