Use the power of Wolfram's computational intelligence to answer your questions. Building on 30+ years of development led by Stephen Wolfram, Wolfram|Alpha is 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.
Walk through the steps of solving many math and chemistry problems with Wolfram|Alpha. Get even more detailed assistance with a Wolfram|Alpha Pro subscription.
Parts of Wolfram|Alpha are used in Apple's Siri assistant; this app gives you access to the full power of the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine.
Use Wolfram|Alpha to compute the following and much more:

It’s good but needs a way to go offline and is the reason why I bought it, because I thought it could go offline ☹️☹️☹️
Purchased this and a subscription only to find out it can’t compute simple integrals so I can check my university work. Was hoping for step-by-step instructions with the paid $9.99 a month subscription but even the $9.99 subscription a month does not have enough ‘computation time’.
So, just a fore-warning for anyone subscribing to this service. The step-by-step instructions issued by the cloud are a maybe depending on how many steps there are, no matter how much you pay.
It’s a cool gimmick and definitely has some amazing science behind the scenes. But for me the $4 for the app and $10 for a subscription only to be told ‘sorry you haven’t paid enough but you can roll the dice again with our more expensive subscription’ is a little disappointing.
Frustrating user experience
The technology behind WolframAlpha is amazing and it’s a great tool to check your work against as a way of confirming your understanding of a mathematical concept. Typing equations on mobile is made so much easier with the in-app keyboard.
Unfortunately the app constantly forgets my pro subscription and computations seem to take much longer than they do on the website. On the site the step by step tool is incredibly useful, but in the app it’s a slow, buggy mess.
In its current state, the app’s only useful to me for typing in equations. If the keyboard was accessible outside the app then I would be happy just using the mobile site. At the moment I copy-paste from the app to the site, which works but is kind of annoying.
Given the glaring bugs here, the app itself seems more like a channel to increase subscriptions rather than a tool providing better mobile access to WA.
