[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Today, educational tech startup StudyRoom, unveiled Snapsolve, a revolutionary new iPhone app that allows its users to send their most challenging homework and study questions to StudyRoom's Student Tutors with just a picture. Students can use Snapsolve to get instant homework help, regardless of the time of day or location. Users simply take a photo of their homework problem and then send it directly to Student Tutors for a customized answer and explanation.
Snapsolve builds on StudyRoom's existing web-based Student Tutor Program, which is designed to utilize their existing network of over 500,000 college students, giving the company the unique ability to match students with Student Tutors who may have taken the exact class that they need help with the semester prior. Busy students will now be get quality help on the go by using the Snapsolve app to ask their questions, which are then pooled to StudyRoom's network of Student Tutors. StudyRoom will then match the question with the best tutor for the student based on Tutors' areas of expertise, past courses and university.
"Before StudyRoom, it was extremely hard for students to connect and collaborate with their classmates. With the StudyRoom platform we built the foundation needed for a real social learning experience," says StudyRoom's CEO, Emerson Malca. "Now with Snapsolve, we're scaling our reach while providing a more personalized, on-demand experience for students seeking for academic help. And we're making it available to every student in the U.S., K-12 through college."
