Description

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:

Editors’ Notes

Whether you're a student working on a class project or you have questions about everyday life, you’ll enjoy uncovering fascinating and useful information with WolframAlpha. It’s a knowledge engine that can instantly generate facts and answers on a vast range of topics—from solving math equations to telling you the tallest building on Earth and the number of satellites visible from your location. Plus, Wolfram Group’s amazing app presents content in organized lists, graphs, and charts that are easy to pore over and learn from.

Needs easier design and Apple Watch interface

hoorayberet00

Searching with this app should render some great results based on what Wolfram Alpha's website states. Yet, it is not easy to search for information or get results that help to enhance my life. It seems like it requires a certain way to speak to it, in order to get a certain usefulness. While that may seem great for certain cases, putting the customer at the center of the product's usefulness will greatly enhance its reach and potential. I feel there is some real limits with this app. Especially with the inability to get detailed information using Siri and from Apple Watch. The app just isn't intended to provide a usefulness. You would think that chatbots would help to make the user experience even easier. But that may point to the lack of the company's willingness to play with creative ideas in expanding its usefulness.

Ignore the 1 stars

R1kid07

I recommend that people ignore the one star reviews, those people have no idea how to use the app. They think this is some search engine like google but it’s more suited for running calculations. If you’ve heard of Mathematica and know what the wolfram alpha website is then you are basically getting full support with this app for peanuts compared to what the website charges. It’s not as mathematically powerful as Mathematica but for running quick calculations on the fly, this is indispensable.
