The app presents you with an answer wither from Yahoo or Wikipedia, and thus saves you the effort of typing out your query on Google.
Basically, it does all the work for you and provides answers. Socratic’s math solver allows students to get step-by-step help by taking a picture of an individual problem. Mixed with color-coded substeps and explanations, Socratic provides the best math helper available for free.
This app makes use of artificial intelligence to determine what information you need, and brings you explanatory videos and other media to give you step-by step help. This is just like having a tutor in your pocket, generating answers from a community of teachers and students.
