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.)
What's New in Version 1.6.0
- Updated to support iOS 7 design and general bug fixes.
Calculus problems solved!
If you are a college student or high school student and if you are taking a Math class, this is the app that you need! Not only does it give you the answer to any problem you compute into the program, it also gives you the step by step process on how to get that answer. It shows you the math and also tells you why each step is done. It is like having a personal tutor in your room helping you out on the problem. It has made calculus so much easier to understand and finish my homework without stress of what I just learned. If you hate getting stuck on your homework not knowing why you can’t get the right answer or you don’t know what the next step is, this will be so helpful for you. I promise you that the 3 dollars is well worth it, that you for sure will get your money’s worth and then some. So if you are having problems with calculus or any math for that matter, this will be your dearest friend to put into your app library. Plus not only does it do math but it can answer a lot of other fact based questions as well. It’s like google for facts. This App seems like it came from the future because it’s just mind blowing! What are you waiting for? Your math homework awaits!
While I haven't used any other functionality, its math-related abilities are incredible.
As an early-level engineering student, the math I'm typically dealing with can be difficult to calculate, and in some cases, I'm unable to check my answer to fully make sure I'm understanding it. Wolfram Alpha helps me make sure I know that I got the correct answer.
While its Boolean algebra abilities can be limited, it's amazing at differentiation and integration. By extension, it's been an incredible tool when using Laplace Transformation, as well as it's inverse operation, even in plain-text input
It's plain-text abilities supersede any other math tool, and I can honestly say I use this app (and it's website) far more often than the program the school pays for. The additional keyboard with special symbols for math (such as an integral key and a square root key) are only bonuses.
If you haven't used this app or this website, I definitely recommend it, even for its limitless non-math abilities.
I haven't had a chance to browse through a significant portion of this app, but I was very interested when I noticed an engineering section, specifically a civil engineering section. Much to my disappointment there isn't much to it and the section regarding beam deflection consists of some pretty silly nonsense. WA needs some help in that section, especially if they are going to make me pay for an app that tells me the information that I input, which came straight from the AISC Manual (bible), is invalid. I'll have to look through the rest but it was disappointing to say the least. There are too many errors to even say that it's close so WA's best course of action might be to consult a structural engineer. You can borrow my AISC Manual at least if you'd like...try again, please.
