Taking introductory chemistry, or need a quick chemistry reference? Then you need the Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant. This comprehensive app for chemistry will help you quickly solve your homework problems, ace your tests, and quiz your understanding of basic chemistry concepts so you're prepared for your courses. Forget canned examples! The Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant solves your specific chemistry problems on the fly.
This app covers the following topics applicable to Introductory Chemistry, General Chemistry, and AP Chemistry:
- Determine properties of elements, chemicals, and ions
- Compute properties of gases using various gas laws
- Perform stoichiometric conversions for solutions
- Balance equations
- Compute the enthalpy, equilibrium constant, and theoretical yield of a reaction
- Perform over 45 different computations
The Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education.
The Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

Ratings and Reviews
I suspect the negative reviews are from people trying to take short cuts, i found this to be a very useful program, however you need to have basic understanding of chemistry to use it. I think it was well worth the money. I use to check my college chem homework. Once again it is NOT for short cuts. I need to understand what it is you are doing, and this programs allows you to check it. Kudos Wolfram
Not very useful
Waste of $5. The interface isn't very intuitive. Considering this is just a modified interface for accessing wolfram alpha(or so it seems), it would be nice if it at least made things more accessible than within the regular wolfram alpha application.
I couldn't tell that it did anything that couldn't be done with the regular wolfram alpha app. It's just a skin for it with limited features available.
It wouldn't be too bad, but wolfram's chemistry capabilities aren't great. It has lots of information, but it doesn't do too great when you venture beyond surface level.
Limited use for class
This is a clever app designed by folks who have not taught chemistry. It does have a periodic table tucked away if you want to balance an equation. Probably most useful in lab report writing. Maybe too much to expect an app to teach strategies for solving chem problems. Serious disadvantage that you need to connect to the Wolfram server - Wolfram should know there are some places cell phones or tablet computers.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
