Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Use An Android Emulator For Photomath?

Photomath is an apk file which means that it was developed to run on Android and iOS devices.

Therefore, to use on Windows or Mac, you’ll be required to create an Android environment (with the help of an Android emulator) which will allow Photomath to execute.

Are Android Emulators Legal?

Using an android emulator on PCs is legal because its job is to simulate the original device.

However, using them could become illegal if the emulator is violating the copyrights that the original hardware holds.

For example:

If I own a graphing calculator and you use an Android emulator to run the calculator on your PC instead of using the physical device, that’s legal.

Downloading the ROM files of the graphic calculator will be considered copyright infringement unless I (the owner) allows you to do so.

You really need to be careful about which emulator you try to use.

Are Android Emulators Safe For Windows And Mac Computers?

Android emulators are safe, viruses or malware should not worry you if you download the emulator from a safe website (preferably its official website).

Additionally, to ensure safe download, I’d suggest that you download emulators that are trusted by people – stick to popular ones e,g. BlueStacks, NoxPlayer, or MEmu.

Final Thoughts

I hope you were able to download Photomath for PC. If you haven’t then you must have skipped one step. You can start the process afresh as you don’t have to waste more time solving complex calculations.

Why look for a pen and calculator when you can just use Photomath on Windows or Mac?
