This app is not a search engine…It’s an answer engine. It won’t give you results of websites that can lead you to your answer; it will give you the answer. 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:
MATHEMATICS, STATISTICS & DATA ANALYSIS, PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, MATERIALS ENGINEERING, ASTRONOMY, EARTH SCIENCE, LIFE SCIENCES, COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES, UNITS & MEASURES, DATES & TIMES, WEATHER, PLACES & GEOGRAPHY, PEOPLE & HISTORY, CULTURE & MEDIA, WORDS & LINGUISTICS, SPORTS & GAMES, COLORS, MONEY & FINANCE, SOCIOECONOMIC DATA, HEALTH & MEDICINE, FOOD & NUTRITION, EDUCATION ORGANIZATIONS, TRANSPORTATION, TECHNOLOGICAL, WORLD WEB & COMPUTER SYSTEMS.
This is a lot of information, but this would be a great app for a college student or anyone who wants just the facts.
