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 1.7.2
- Bug fixes
Wolfram Alpha is a treasure
I've used this app many times for calculations mundane (covert Imperial to metric) to somewhat unusual (relativistic time dilation), and it has worked very well for me. If you have a need for anything Wolfram Alpha offers on your iPad and / or phone, get this app.
A few advantages over just using the website: advanced copy-paste functions, improved formatting, history.
WolframAlpha is more than just a mathematics tool. It also pulls from vast databases with, for example, population data, info about various corporations allowing interesting comparisons and much more. Try comparing Microsoft to Google, for instance by typing the two names as input.
I've had this app for 4 years on 5 different devices.
I would recommend this app to anyone, point blank. This app has of-course, gone through UI & UX changes, and they removed some key features over time but the fact still remains, it's an extremely useful & powerful engine. Giving people access to systematic knowledge and immediate computable access is important!
I'm an Industrial Designer and with Wolfram, I was able to learn and use Snell's Law in real life, hot lasers and lenses haha! Thanks!
From a software engineer
I'm a software engineer with a background in computer engineering so my degree was incredibly math heavy.
Back when I was in high school and then college, this app helped me through all of my calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, discrete math, and circuits courses.
I've always had a reason to keep it on my phone the past five years and I still use it. It's definitely worth the money and the space it takes on your phone.
