# These Apps Make Calculating a Breeze

As much as we may dislike math, it's a basic necessity in life, no matter who you are. Fortunately, these apps make it easy for you to do whatever calculations you need to on-the-fly!

## Simple Calculations

While we have a built-in calculator on iOS, sometimes it just doesn't cut it, or the aesthetics don't fit the bill for you. These apps are great replacements and get the job done.

## Solve Equations In New Ways

Equations can be rather scary, but these apps help you find the solution in all new ways.

### Point, scan, and solve equations easily

Photomath

#### For those who want a fast and thorough way to solve equations on their homework assignments.

Photomath is a smart calculator app that does something unique and special, and is an invaluable tool for students. Just launch the app, point your camera at your equation, scan it, and Photomath will come up with the answer. But that's not all — rather than just give you an answer without showing you how it arrives to that solution, you'll get detailed step-by-step explanations of how to arrive at that answer. At the moment, Photomath has full support for arithmetics, fractions, decimal numbers, linear equations, equation systems, and some functions like logarithms. While you can have Photomath solve more complex problems like integrals, trigonometry, and derivatives, these don't have support for step-by-step explanations just yet.

#### Why we love it

We remember how tough equations can be in school, and wish we had something like this around back then. Being able to take a photo of the equation and then have it explain how to get the answer is super helpful.

## Calculate and Convert at the Same Time

If you want a simple calculator that gets the job done, but need to do some basic unit conversions too, then make sure to check out this app.

## Graph Those Calculations

With complex equations come complicated graphs. Get the job done with this great app.

## Easily Do Financial Calculations

Having to deal with financial calculations can be a real pain, but these apps make everything much more tolerable.
