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. (The developers 🛸might be hybrid-alien-ninjas from the future) L👽L

Anyone who gives this ap less than five stars is an ignorant fool. Absolute must have for anyone seriously committed to mathematical education by actually learning the material and actually working through textbook problems. This ap basically gives you the ability to automatically factor polynomials as you develop proofs thereby getting you to the end result step by step. Not for fools this is a tool for learning and man aid to developing formal proofs by allowing you to troubleshoot each step as you go without having to constantly reference tables of identities. Basically an abstract algebra calculator much cheaper than their full product Mathematica.

Searching with this app should render some great results based on what Wolfram Alpha's website states. Yet, it is not easy to search for information or get results that help to enhance my life. It seems like it requires a certain way to speak to it, in order to get a certain usefulness. While that may seem great for certain cases, putting the customer at the center of the product's usefulness will greatly enhance its reach and potential. I feel there is some real limits with this app. Especially with the inability to get detailed information using Siri and from Apple Watch. The app just isn't intended to provide a usefulness. You would think that chatbots would help to make the user experience even easier. But that may point to the lack of the company's willingness to play with creative ideas in expanding its usefulness.
