Amazing but could use work
This has everything. If you frequently use google or Wikipedia just use this instead it is so useful for such a wide variety of things, I use it mostly for STEM applications which it is amazing at. They added a camera feature which I begged for and I’m glad my pleas were answered it was definitely worth the $5. But here’s where it falls short, I still have apps like mathway because this does not accept mathematical input from images which I NEED in daily use. This would be the only math app I’d ever use if that was a feature. There is text recognition so I don’t think this is far out. Please add this and superb job on the app it’s absolutely amazing and worth the money.
!!! Subscription Warning !!!
I would have give this app 5-star a couple months ago. However, I was only able to give it 2 (I originally want to give it 1, but at the mercy that it helped me a lot in the past).
I paid for this app many years ago as it can request longer computation time and show step-by-step solution than the web version. However, this additional feature is curtailed after a recent update, and there is practically little difference of using this app now and the web version (maybe the UI is a little bit cleaner and user friendly, but remember this is a paid app, and now you have to pay for the subscription to use those features as you do with the web version).
If this app is not for free, PLEASE DON’T BUY IT !!! Use the web version and it doesn’t cost you anything, your one-time payment makes no difference. If this is app is free, I would wish them to refund my money back, and I will probably give it a 4-star.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your interest in the Wolfram Alpha app. The new version of the Wolfram Alpha app continues to deliver the same step-by-step solutions that previous versions did. The subscription enables new improvements to step-by-step including additional intermediate steps and hints. The subscription also includes access to step-by-step on the web and the Image as Input feature.
This app is amazingly good for STEM majors (science, technology, engineering, math). It is not a search engine like google as some of the other reviewers seem to believe. If you want to know what it’s like, the website by the same name is almost identical. Paying for the app lets you see step-by-step solutions to math problems, but does not give you access to the website’s same premium feature. You should know the step-by-step solutions are sometimes not helpful (e.g. often uses reduction formulas to solve trigonometric integrals, when students are generally taught to use those as a last resort). Still an amazing app though. I think many people that would like it would be content with just the free part of the website.
