Remember the Star Trek computer? It's finally happening--with Wolfram|Alpha. Building on 25 years of development led by Stephen Wolfram, Wolfram|Alpha has rapidly become the world's definitive source for instant expert knowledge and computation.
Across thousands of domains--with more continually added--Wolfram|Alpha uses its vast collection of algorithms and data to compute answers and generate reports for you.
Parts of Wolfram|Alpha are used in the Apple Siri Assistant; this app gives you access to the full power of the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine. Domains covered by Wolfram|Alpha include:
STATISTICS & DATA ANALYSIS
Electricity & Magnetism
Animals & Plants
DNA Sequence Lookup
UNITS & MEASURES
DATES & TIMES
Current & Historical Weather
PLACES & GEOGRAPHY
PEOPLE & HISTORY
Historical Events, Periods & Countries
CULTURE & MEDIA
WORDS & LINGUISTICS
SPORTS & GAMES
Color Names & Systems
MONEY & FINANCE
Cost of Living
HEALTH & MEDICINE
Medical Test Data

analytics are not yet available through this app.)
What's New in Version 188.8.131.525011603
- Bug fixes
This is progress! Beautiful progress!
Let me explain this app( well not the app but the program itself along with Mathmatica) are steps to turning our entire educational system upside down, by teaching kids to do actual math instead of teaching them how to calculate integrals. Additionally I would love to see the people at Wolfram contact others in the programming business like for example trying to have it be incorporated into Maeve Google or Siri or Cortana. But at least I would love it if they would add a voice to text option for the input bar that would be amazing, since I can't really take a photo of my horrible hand writing and have it come up with something legible
I think I paid $.99 for Wolfram Alpha. I bought it because I thought it would give me a mathematical keyboard I could use for symbols. Sometime in the several days, I opened it and tapped on the algebra icon. I was going to use it for calculus equations that I have used many times. I was very satisfied with the the ease of entering the equations and the breadth of the detailed solution. Couple this with Mobis app calculator and you can solve some great problems. You can save the site of your calculations in notes and that will bring you right back to your work.
NEEDS TO BE AN APPLE ESSENTIAL!!!
This is a MUST HAVE for any and every college student and I highly recommend it for high school students as well. For college students like myself if you buy this and PocketCAS then you have all you will need for at least 90% of your classes throughout all of college. They both help me everyday especially WOLFRAM! I just found out there is a add on purchase for this app and I'm buying it as soon as I submit this review. WELL WORTH 20 TIMES ITS COST!!!
