The Wolfram Alpha app is in the App Store. Got $50 burning a hole in your pocket and want the latest cutting edge search and calculation engine from Wolfram Alpha on your iPhone or iPod touch? The Wolfram Alpha iPhone app performs graphic calculations, function plotting, stock analysis, currency conversions, and more great for data analysis, financial analysts and students alike.
The $49.99 price tag is probably there to attract developers who are interested in learning more about the Wolfram Alpha API which was announced recently. Wolfram’s goal is to make systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone, and the Wolfram Alpha iPhone app helps support this goal quite effectively.
Some example usages of the app include:
Stock comparison: Type any two or three stock tickers such as GOOG vs. YHOO vs. MSFT
Music, movies and books: Type in the name of any artist, movie, book or author for detailed stats on that item: ex) Coldplay or Titanic
Historical Date Info: Enter any date to get a ton of almanac info on it. Try a birthday or anniversary date etc.
A Graphic calculator, Loan and Mortgage calculations and ton more features hidden within the Wolfram Alpha app.
There are also a bunch of interesting easter eggs in the WolframAlpha iPhone app you can experiment with like:
Licks to the center of a tootsie pop?
What’s the speed of an unladen swallow?
How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man? Where am I? What’s the answer to life?
Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?
Dude, where’s my car?
“When is Judgement Day?
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck?
How old are you?
And finally if you ask Wolfram Alpha “how much does wolfram alpha cost” the answer is “if you have to ask… you can’t afford it”
So if you are on the forefront of cool apps, and don’t have any questions about the price, get your artificial intelligence fix with the Wolfram Alpha app.
