These are the top five math apps you should have in your phone.  

Math App


Brainly is a social networking app designed at connecting students and sharing problems – educational problems that is, this is not Facebook or Reddit, if you want to know. You can download the app and connect with other students to see what might be the problems you and others are facing. You can share your math problems, seek advice and get them solved. Also, you can forge some serious friendships as well. Networking with fellow likeminded people is always healthy and can never hurt.

At the time of account creation, you tell the app what is your level of education, what grade you are in, and the app forms your community around that information.


HiPER is an amazing calculator. It has a free and a paid version, the free version is good enough for most students at grade school and college level but the premium version makes it insane.
