I found some programs to convert handwritten math equations into latex code such as:

  • MyScript Mathpad (only iOS)
  • InLage (only Windows)

But I didn't find any app for android. Is there any app for android with that feature? It doesn't need to be free.

  • There is an online demo from myscript link. Maybe, they will release an android app some day :)

    I've build a website for single symbol recognition write-math.com. Does it have to be an app? Why? - Oh, by the way, MyScript does not do OCR. They do on-line recognition, not off-line recognition. That means they use the information how the symbol is written. You can't feed an image into their system. Nov 1, 2015 at 14:24

MyScript is an Android application that lets you write your notes as well as math formulas. It recognizes math objects and can export to LaTeX

Edit: this seems to have deprecated and it no longer available for download.

    Seems like they removed the application. I see the same error. Probably just hasn't been updated in years. Oct 21, 2017 at 17:26


The Mathpix desktop app allows users to take screenshots of math equations and paste the extracted Latex, all with a single keyboard shortcut.

It's an indispensable utility for anyone who works with Latex or wishes to do so.

The Android app is available here

MathPix app

From the recognized expression the app can solve it, graph it or search for more information on Wolfram Alpha


Mathematical Expression Recognition


This is a work-in-progress demonstrator of a Mathematical Expression Recognizer (Last update: September, 2016).

The recognition engine is based on SESHAT, an open-source system for recognizing handwritten math expressions.


  1. Write an expression on the 'draw here' area.
  2. Click on the 'send' link to translate it to a LaTeX equation.

It's just a webpage so it can work on any platforms
