Socratic : App of the year

Socratic is the number one app of the year, named by Google

Socratic is the number one app of the year, named by Google. It is a tutoring app, available for free on both Google Play and the Apple App Store which is designed to help you complete your homework. It knows what’s included in a wide range of subjects, including Math’s, History, Economics, English, Chemistry and Biology, and uses
AI to help you understand and work through problems.

The only thing you as a user need to do is take a picture of your homework and upload it onto Socratic. Automatically the app will recognise the problem and will provide you with a step by step response on how to solve it. Google says Socratic “blew us away this year — cleverly conceived, beautifully designed, and wonderfully useful.”

It further added, “Socratic captivated us with its best-in-class artificial intelligence: ask a
question, and it’ll curate the info you need — like step-by-step math’s solutions — to answer it. We can’t wait to see our App of the Year get even smarter.”

The company has also compiled a list of the top five most popular new apps of the year.
In the UK, they are:

• FaceApp – a photography app
• Mercari – Buy, Sell, New & Used – a shopping app
• Selfie Camera – Beauty Camera & Photo Editor – an editing app
• 5 Gold Rings UK – a quiz show app
• Don’t Ask Me Ask Britain – a quiz show app

The US opted for a rather different list:

• Photo Editor – Beauty Camera & Photo Filters – an editing app
• What the Forecast?!! – a weather app
• Boomerang – a cartoons app
• TopBuzz Video: Viral Videos, Funny GIFs & TV shows – a trending content app
• Yarn – Chat Fiction – a short stories app Google also revealed that Nintendo’s Super
Mario Run was the most downloaded new game of the year, Moana took the crown for films, Game of Thrones was the most popular TV show and Kendrick Lamar’s HUMBLE came out on top for streamed songs
