Use EquatIO Mobile
Want your eyes to completely bug out of your head!? You have to try out EquatIO mobile. It allows you to WRITE math on PAPER and then convert to typed math and then magically show up in your Google Slides (or other Google Apps.)
1. Create Google Slides
You can actually use Docs, Sheets, Drawings, or Forms. Step one is to have a document open on your computer (not a mobile app.)
2. Click the EquatIO Chrome Extension
EquatIO is a Chrome extension so make sure you’re in Google Chrome. Install the Chrome extension and click the icon.
The EquatIO toolbar must be present at the bottom of your Google Apps document to register with m.equat.io.
On your phone or mobile device open up Chrome for Android or Safari on iOS. Go to the website m.equat.io. Any Google Apps that are open on your computer AND have the EquatIO bar open at the bottom will appear under “Active documents.” Tap on the document you wish to send your EquatIO to.
4. Take a Picture
Within Equat.IO you have the option to take a picture of math written on paper, write math with your finger or stylus, or to voice type your math. Choosing the camera option you will take a picture of paper where you have written math.
5. Crop the Image
You can use your finger to draw a rectangle around the parts of the paper that have math.
6. Save as Math
Tap the green checkmark to indicate you are done cropping. Choose the option “Save as math” to have it convert your handwriting into EquatIO typed math.
m.equat.io will confirm with you that this is the expression you want to send to the Google Slides (or other app you chose.) Tap the blue “upload” button to send to Google Slides.
8. LIKE MAGIC
Magically in front of your eyes, the math expression on your phone is now on your Google Slides!
