September 10,  2020 – Apple has recently declared the Croatian application for solving mathematical problems, Photomath, the application of the day. reports that Photomath is a mobile application produced by the company of the same name, whose founder and director is Damir Sabol. The Photomath app is currently used by around 195 million users worldwide, and the number of those who download it continues to grow. As Sabol said, Photomath expects the number of users to reach 200 million soon. Most users, about a quarter, are in the United States. It is followed by Russia, then Brazil, European countries, and Indonesia.

“We are glad that Apple declared us the app of the day last week, on Monday, which is important for our promotion. However, we are building our growth in the quality of our own product. We don’t know what this Apple move will bring us in numbers, but it is certainly significant for us because something like that still needs to be earned. First of all, you have to have a quality app and a lot of users, and Apple has recognized that,” Sabol told Index.

Sabol founded Photomath in 2014. Today, it employs 65 people in Croatia and 10 in Silicon Valley in the United States. The startup is known for the Photomath application, which allows users to draw a math problem and then get a solution for it and an explanation of how to come up with the solution.

At first glance, Sabol points out, it seems simple, but there is a lot of effort behind it, and a lot needs to be done. Therefore, Photomath is still focused on its (so far only) application and its further development. The application is, by the way, free, but its more complex contents are charged.

“Math is taught to a billion people in the world; it’s a big market,” Sabol says.

He adds that they had a particularly significant jump in the number of users in the midst of the corona crisis in April and May. Namely, schools around the world did not work, so many pupils and students looked to the Photomath application to solve mathematical problems and understand mathematical operations.

“We had many app downloads in April and May, while schools were closed due to coronavirus. Our app proved to be a great way to learn math,” Sabol concludes.
