Ratings and Reviews

Not what it suggests it is.


Since this bills itself as a reference application, one kind of expects it would do a search on the major economic indices it tracks. Not at all. In fact it isn’t even current within a couple of years. While the Bureau of Labor Statistics is issuing the Consumer Price Index and employment reports on a monthly basis, the Wolfram servers only hold historical data up to a few years ago. Worse, this app seems to default to asking for data in June of 2004. (No idea why.)

Sadly, if you have an interest in following the US Economic Indicators, Wolfram is no help and this app is more of an obstacle than an assistant. Avoid.

This really needs to be de-bugged BEWARE!


If you don't believe me, then run the first example: GDP using Wolfram's own example numbers ... it crashes; then change the date to only a year ... It may end up in an endless loop; then do a hard reset and rerun the GDP example, but use only a year as before ... It may then compute a value and a graph.

Other app functions ay run normally providing a red lie indicating the month in question, but the GDP is nich sehr gut!

This app should come back as a 99 cent app for all the anxiety it has caused me for spending $4.99 for it only a few minutes ago.
