PhotoMath Application Solves Algebra Equations Automatically

photomath

Remember solving algebra equations in school? Ya, neither do we. It was one of those things you learnt just before the exam, and quickly expunged from your memory afterwards. It was hard, yo. But how different things might have been had we had something like PhotoMath back then. It’s an application that scans an equation on paper by using your smartphone’s camera, and then proceeds to solve it instantly. Not only do you get your answer right away, you get a step-by-step breakdown of the solution. This sort of immediate feedback can help kids know if they’re on the right track as they’re doing their homework, without having to wait until the next day to find out. Of course, that’s assuming they don’t just abuse the damn thing and skip the thinking part altogether, relying on it to get work done rather than to learn anything. Which is exactly what’s going to happen, so we’re not sure how to feel about it. And, in any case, it only solves simple linear algebraic equations, so you can forget about it helping you with your Calculus. And it’s not even out yet, with a “early 2015″ target. Still, if you’re curious about it, you can sign up to be notified when it’s ready for download.

Shazam for iOS Now Integrates With Rdio

shazam

With its latest update, Shazam has gotten considerably more useful. On more than one occasion have I Shazam-ed a song only to have to then manually launch Rdio, search for it, and then play it. It’s annoying and unnecessary and I had been waiting for this kind of integration for a long time. Now, whenever you tag something, you’re given the option to play it in Rdio, or better yet, to play the song directly in Shazam without even needing to launch Rdio separately. The integration is seamless and really well done. It’s an obvious partnership that adds appeal to both services. For users of both, know that the functionality is just an update away, so get to it!

McDonald’s Thinks Their Fast Food Isn’t Fast Enough, And Are Working On An App To Fix That

mcd

Apparently, being able to get a burger served to you in less than a minute just isn’t fast enough in the eyes of McDonald’s. The company is running a very limited pilot test in 22 locations in Columbus, Ohio, where a new application called McD Ordering is supposed to make the ordering process even faster and more streamlined. The way it works involves you placing, and paying for your order in advance through the app, which then generates a unique QR code. Simply present that code once you’ve reached the restaurant and the food will be handed to you. The system is meant to cut down on errors and, well, interaction time with potentially less than pleasant McDrones.

It’s not being advertised anywhere, but apparently 10 orders a day or so are being placed at the moment. The app is free on iOS and Android, but the mixed reviews apparently stem from customers not being aware of which locations they can use it at.

Our only gripe with the idea is that McDonald’s food has a very narrow freshness window, which is likely to be missed as your paper bag patiently waits for you to make your way to the location. If they integrate a GPS-powered zone warning, whereby the McD’s workers receive your order only once you’re a certain distance away from the restaurant in the hopes it’ll be ready just as you walk through the door, then maybe this can work. Otherwise, enjoy your stale Big Mac.
