Math-solver app QANDA reaches 1 billion questions solved


Seoul-based edutech startup Mathpresso announced that its math-solver app QANDA reached 1 billion questions solved by the app. The number of Thai users reached 320K - roughly 10% of the national K-12 population with smart phones in Thailand.


Developed by Korea’s leading edtech startup, Mathpresso, ‘QANDA’ is a mobile app that enables students of all levels to receive instant solutions and 1-on-1 support from some of the world’s top-university tutors. Users can take a photo of a math problem, upload it to the app, and then its AI-based optical character recognition scan will find and solve it in five seconds. Since its launch in 2016, QANDA has solved over 1 billion problems submitted by students from over 50 countries. Over 3 million questions are asked and searched through QANDA every day. Since COVID-19, the company has seen a surge on the e-learning platform demand, with its number of questions solved increasing from 500 millions in April to 1 billion.


After the company launched the Thai service in August, Thailand reached no.1 on the Google Play Store Education Chart within just a week. This chart score marks Thailand the fastest country to top the chart for QANDA, in comparison to Japan and Vietnam that took four and three months respectively. Other services on the chart include global educational apps such as Google Classroom and Photomath.


"Our competitive edge is that we provide both the AI-driven instant search function and human-driven Q&A function through tutors, while no other educational apps incorporate both features as perfectly.” said Ray Lee, CEO at Mathpresso. "We will continue to provide the most effective education for all students around the world”
