Myself, and fellow co-founder Chris Johnson created Left Meets Right (LMR) LLC to address a problem that irked us throughout our years as engineering students. The problem we had reared its ugly head in our first calculus class and only seemed to progress in severity as we advanced through our coursework. This problem we are referring to is best explained with an example image -
As evident by the above image, the problem we’re referring to is the syntactical difference between written mathematical expressions and every tool we have used to solve such expressions. In our eyes, this process of translating has always been a time consuming and tedious experience that more often than should, ends with typos..
Our iOS application, Math-Ink,
harnesses the advancements made in handwriting recognition software to give
users the ability to solve equations in a natural, simplistic fashion.
Utilizing Vision Objects handwriting recognition software merged with Wolfram
Alpha’s math engine, Math-ink finally addresses the core issue prevalent in all
other math solvers.
We have had a very positive response from our users thus far and continue to receive and consider their feedback, especially in the case of specific suggestions for improvement. The current version of Math-Ink is the product of our vision as two math students and we always intended for it to be a platform to build upon based on many math students' input. We are excited about the future of Math-Ink and implementing new features with the collaborative vision of our users in mind. It is amazing to be on the receiving end of ideas we hadn't previously considered and hope to fulfill the desires and build Math-Ink into the most comprehensive, universally accessible math tool available.
