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.)

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.
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.
[Review for WolframA]
Amazing how far technology has progressed in the last decade (think 2008) IMO, This is an amazing app. I won’t get into why, only because other 5 star reviews have said it better.
That being said. It’s obviously not for everyone, but, to give it 1 star if it doesn’t work flawlessly on your AppleWatch? 1 star?
(Although I believe the 1 star review speaks more about the person leaving the review than the app itself...spoiled brat growing up?L👶🏼L) Anyway, when I think about what this app can do, then what this phone can do, then...well, we don’t need to get into all that. This app flexes the technology available to the layman.
