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
FOOD & NUTRITION
WEB & COMPUTER SYSTEMS
(Wolfram|Alpha Pro capabilities such as file upload and personal
analytics are not yet available through this app.)

Ratings and Reviews
This app is amazingly good for STEM majors (science, technology, engineering, math). It is not a search engine like google as some of the other reviewers seem to believe. If you want to know what it’s like, the website by the same name is almost identical. Paying for the app lets you see step-by-step solutions to math problems, but does not give you access to the website’s same premium feature. You should know the step-by-step solutions are sometimes not helpful (e.g. often uses reduction formulas to solve trigonometric integrals, when students are generally taught to use those as a last resort). Still an amazing app though. I think many people that would like it would be content with just the free part of the website.
[Review for WolframA]
Amazing how far technology has progressed in the last decade (think 2008) IMO, This is an amazing app. I won’t get into why, only because other 5 star reviews have said it better.
That being said. It’s obviously not for everyone, but, to give it 1 star if it doesn’t work flawlessly on your AppleWatch? 1 star?
(Although I believe the 1 star review speaks more about the person leaving the review than the app itself...spoiled brat growing up?L👶🏼L) Anyway, when I think about what this app can do, then what this phone can do, then...well, we don’t need to get into all that. This app flexes the technology available to the layman.
(The developers 🛸might be hybrid-alien-ninjas from the future) L👽L
Masters degree in your pocket
Anyone who gives this ap less than five stars is an ignorant fool. Absolute must have for anyone seriously committed to mathematical education by actually learning the material and actually working through textbook problems. This ap basically gives you the ability to automatically factor polynomials as you develop proofs thereby getting you to the end result step by step. Not for fools this is a tool for learning and man aid to developing formal proofs by allowing you to troubleshoot each step as you go without having to constantly reference tables of identities. Basically an abstract algebra calculator much cheaper than their full product Mathematica.
