Recognize Handwritten Equations with MyScript MathPad

Years ago, I shared about Web Equation, a website that lets you hand write equations and solve them via Wolfram Alpha. In this post, I am going to introduce to you another handwritten equation recognition app, the MyScript Mathpad.

MyScript Mathpad is a handwriting recognition app specialized for mathematics expressions. MyScript Mathpad automatically converts handwritten mathematical expressions and equations to their digital equivalent. It can recognize more than 200 symbols and operators.

Equations created with MyScript Mathpad can be exported to Latex and MathML.  It can also be shared through Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other social media.

There are two features that I like about MyScript Mathpad. The first one is its scratch-out and strike-through gesture editing.  If you want to delete something, all you have to do is to scratch-out the expression you want and it’s gone. The second one is its support for left-handed persons.

MyScript MathPad is compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch running in iOS 6.0 or later.

It’s FREE!

Handwrite and Solve Math Equations with Web Equation

Web Equation by Vision Objects is a good math handwriting recognition tool. I have discovered it recently via Stumbleupon. From experience, I think it is slightly better than Windows 7’s Math Input Panel in terms of handwriting recognition.

The page is very intuitive to use. Just use the mouse or a pen to write the mathematical expression on the “yellow zone.” The mathematical expression is recognized and the result is displayed at the bottom of the page.

Mathematical expressions and equations created in Web Equations can be  solved with Wolfram Alpha. Just click the Compute with Wolfram Alpha button. In addition, the Latex and Math ML codes are also generated as you write.
