5.0 out of 5 stars Don't limit yourself to math with this app! March 23, 2011
None of the other reviewers so far have mentioned the other capabilities of the app, besides its ability to do and explain complicated math. I use this app to look up stocks, populations, random trivia like the odds of poker hands and the birthdays of actors, and calculate the number of calories in my breakfast. It does a ton, and although you can just use the mobile website, the app works well and it's nice to give a couple bucks to the people involved in making this awesome tool. The math/symbols keyboard that pops up is great, too, and makes punching in obscure symbols easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most powerful apps out there March 23, 2011
This is one of the very few apps I have actually paid for, and it was very, very much worth it. As other reviewers have stated, it is extremely useful for math, including all of calculus and differential equations! It can be slightly tedious typing the problems in by hand, but as you may well know it sure beats the 30 minutes it would take to solve analytically. It also provides way more info than you would ever want to know about almost every molecular compound and chemical out there. These are two examples out of thousands of uses. As unbelievable as it seems, it really does provide an answer to almost every physical thing.

For a "demo" I highly recommend checking out their website: [...]. The app is literally the exact same thing, except 100% mobile! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars An answer engine, not just a search engine November 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
I had used Wolfram Alpha before, so when I saw there was an app for my Kindle Fire, I didn't even have to think about it - I downloaded it immediately. According to the developer, the app is an answer-engine that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from structured data, rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine would.

Whatever you call it, it truly works. I haven't seen another app like it for gathering a lot of related information and presenting it in text, tabular, or graphical form. The best way to learn what it can do is to start asking questions. It's certainly not perfect, but I've been amazing at how productive it is.

It's very good at arithmetic and algebra. Type in "5x=10" and you'll get the answer x=2, plus a graph of the function. That's a trivial example, but I've seen examples that were much more complex.

One of the newer features is the ability to show airline flights that are over your location at the moment. Type "overhead flights," and if your mobile device knows your location, it will give you a list of flights and each flight's altitude, distance, and elevation angle. I've tried it, and it appears to be accurate for lower altitudes (we're on the approach to Atlanta Airport, so we see a lot of low-flying planes).

One time, I needed to know the best time of day for the sun to be at the best angle and direction to photograph a project. I typed "sun," and I got a ton of information about the sun, including a graph showing the sun's direction and altitude for each hour of the day at my location, which was very helpful.

I don't really know what the limitations are for Wolfram Alpha, and it won't replace the other search engines that I use, but it's really useful at times.

Note: Since this app relies on the Wolfram website, you have to be online to use the app.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Computational Engine February 23, 2012
By Tari
Verified Purchase
As a physics major and mathematics minor, I was first introduced to Wolfram Alpha via Wolfram's Mathematica Program. So I was excited to see Wolfram had released Alpha for mobile devices, as it has the full functionality of Mathematica behind it. Combined with its search algorithms, this is easily one of the best programs on the market.

For anyone looking for a TI-89 type calculator for their device, look no further. Alpha will compute your integrals and derivatives, graph your equations, and solve for your variables, and you don't even have to type the equations and mathematical symbols in. Just tell it in plain English what you want, and it's normally very good at interpreting things correctly.

For those looking for something siri-like, than this is the program you want. While it lacks the ability to talk to you, many of Alpha's search algorithms were used in Siri. If it can't find the information you need, you probably aren't being specific enough.

Overall, an excellent program, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unfrickin Believable! March 7, 2013
By Noname
Verified Purchase
This is basically a super computer. You just type in any topic and tons of information comes up. You get current events for cities and much more. I would recommend this app to anyone that is taking pre-algebra or higher as a calculator and just as a computer or google replacement to anyone. After downloading the app, I realize I would have paid maybe $5 or $10 for this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool April 24, 2014
Verified Purchase
After hearing that iApple linked SIRI to this web site ( I hope they pay) I put the app on my Nexus 7, thanks iApple for the free ad time. I was in Mexico and kept seeing different things in the sky at night. Well this I.D.ed about 700+ things in the sky with position etc. So I was able to find a moving satellite that provided a low orbit and tv signals to ships.. seems that one was colorful enough to spot and track. From that simple search to advanced math, was a easy move, however as other reviewers stated, you have to learn how to request complex calculations, ie I wanted to know how many gallons per minute a 1/2 inch pipe delivered at different pressures for various liquids.. it took me a little bit to get it off the gasses calculation..
