Confusing set up and doesn't show steps
I bought this app to help with the final sections of my calc 3 class, since wolfram alpha seems to have a hard time understanding what I am trying to input. The entry slots are a little confusing especially on the divergence theorem. Also, I bought this app to help me understand the steps on how to solve for the answer and this product only gives the answer, which isn't very helpful considering the only thing I'm allowed to use on a test is my brain. Could be usefully for online homework but that is about all I would use it for.
App is great, but glitchy
I bought this app to help me with simple Calc 3 graphing and vectors etc. It really is a great app, but I wish it would plot simple points and vectors in 3-space. Instead you can only graph more complex equations. The app recently began to get glitchy on my iPad. I open it, and it won't let me select anything, it froze. I turned off my iPad and completely closed out of the app, and it still isn't working. But when it does work, it's vey helpful.
This app is so unbelievably slow on my iPhone 3G iOS4.2.1. It takes like a full 2 seconds between when I type a single symbol and when it shows up.
Also, this app simply connects you to the wolfram server, so you still need an internet connection. Considering this, $5 is a bit much when you can just use their website for free.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
