Find a problem, point your smartphone's camera at the equation, and the app will do all the hard work for you -- but will also show you a step-by-step guide in how the app came to a solution.

After you have input basic information including country and city, you select a destination you're interested in and are connected to someone using the app in that location. Once this network is established, you can trade photos, messages and information.
