MathSense and the Team
The problem to solve
Have you ever tried to write down a complete science class lecture on a laptop or your favorite mobile device during the class? If your answer is “Yes”, you are on the right place. We also have.. And we were very disappointed to find out that there was no quick and natural way to do it...
We all came to know the benefits of writing digital notes and saving them on the cloud. We love to share them, search and tag them for easy access. They are always with us, well organized and stored on our favorite devices...
Learning LaTex mustn’t be the only way! - Using equation editors and note taking apps at the same time while having to switch windows for even the slightest change is painful enough on a laptop, let alone your tablet or even a phone.
Saving equations like plain images? - No more!
We believe that there is a better way to write math and science notes, that's why we are so excited to present you MathSense - the first ever cross-platform application made for taking notes on math and science classes.
MathSense is a state of the art Web application, so it is supported well on all platforms:
Also MathSense is build from the start to work together with your favorite services and apps including:
- Google Drive
- Other platforms will be added soon (please leave a comment on what platform you would like to be supported)
Who we are
We are a team of two talented students at the University of Niš, Serbia. We are classmates who share the interest in programming and the passion to always improve the quality and the user experience.
We worked passionately on research and development during the past few months, we are very proud of the result and we would like to share it with you. There is no reference on what we did, we created the worlds first and we would like to make it available to everybody.
MathSense in action
The video presented only scratches the surface of what MathSense is capable of. Here is a quick introduction I just wrote give you a better perspective:
The features and advantages
The technology disappears and lets you focus on math while writing it effortlessly. Math is the most structured language for describing all things, and because of that we can make assumptions on what you may want to type next and make automatic suggestions with autocomplete functionality built-in.
Best user interface
Touchscreen optimized user interface will automatically turn on, when a touchscreen enabled device is detected. The interface is made not to get in the way, allowing you to take full advantage of those beautiful, large screens of today.
Fully interactive, editable documents
Finally you can edit your formulas and text seamlessly, it’s all one document so:
- use copy-paste,
- format and customize the entire note
- change font sizes and colors...
Use technology to learn, be more productive and get better results!
By utilizing the best technologies available like Wolfram|Alpha®, we’ve built functionalities that go way beyond the standard notebook! Check out http://www.wolframalpha.com/ any information you can get there, will be available in your notes instantly.
For example you can easily:
- Solve equations and problems with a single click,
- Plot graphs,
- Find derivatives and do calculus,
- Get instant information on any known theorem or any other science/non-science topic.
All that with a single click/tap!
Sync with favourite service, import from/export to mathML, LaTex...
Although very powerful, this application is not meant to be a professional tool. Instead it supports integration with all the professional applications that support the popular math representation languages such as mathML, LaTex... Quickly transfer your work from one to another easily.
What We Need & What You Get
Basically all the money raised during this campaign will go to cover the necessary expenses to move this app to production. We as a team will find full satisfaction in seing this project come to life to make note taking easier to many people.
Now we need your help to make this application available to the broadest audience possible, and finally publish an app that all mathematicians, students and scientists deserve!
It is all already made, and is waiting for your support to hit the production...
We set the goal to 10000$, but this is a flexible funding campaign, which means that every contributor (future user) counts and will get full recognition and attention from us!
We are not interested in the amount of money raised (because none will go to us anyway), however we are very interested in the people who will find this application useful.
Please take a look at the biggest expenses this project will have to cover:
- Wolfram|Alpha® services
- IndieGoGo processing fees
- Legal stuff...
We have prepared a lot of interesting and valuable persk for you, if you decide to contribute to this project. Please check them all out! They are 100% value, no hidden costs!
Our plan during this campaign is to work on the application itself and make it even better! MathSense is in alpha testing stage now, and we are getting very good feedback on user experience and also valuable tips on how to improve it, so everybody can benefit from it, when it is launched.
MathSense will hit the first beta release around the 1.st of September for those who got the beta access perk, and one month later, around the 1.st of October, MathSense will see the light of the world, as a full functioning web application!
Also it is planned that the MathSense app becomes available on iOS and Android devices, as well as on Windows based tablets soon after launch, so stay tuned!
