Used to be great 1/5
Now crashes within seconds of performing a search on my iPhone X. Behavior persists after killing and restarting the app, and rebooting the phone
Invaluable but ... 3/5
By Mudslide Matt
This is an app that I don’t mind paying for but today it crashed every time I searched for a country (Iceland, Venezuela, etc.). It performed calculations and other searches fine. I couldn’t figure how to contact the developer.
Apps boots me 1/5
Every time it’s about to give me an answer the app closes on its own and exits. One star because it’s not even useable
Not that great 2/5
Not worth the money. It’s trying and advertising to be more than it is. Disappointing.
It does everything you want and more, definitely recommend it
DO NOT USE THIS APP IF YOU STEP BY STEP EXPLANATION 1/5
This app is great, AT ONLY TELLING YOU THE ANSWER! You can’t even use full sentences in this when asking questions like “what is the boundary of Europe and Asia”. Do not recommend and only buy if you want answers with no explanation of the problem. PS, want my money back. Such a rip-off
Works amazing!! 5/5
This app is a very powerful tool when working on tough algebra and other math. I really like the feature that allows to test your password strength.
Practical and amusing 5/5
By Charley V
Solves all sorts of interesting science and engineering problems. Also a great application to play with when stuck in a departure lounge.
[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
Not just for STEM folk 5/5
This elegant computational machine isn’t just for math majors. Its emphasis on organizing and displaying the road to its answers (try checking the inflation-adjusted amount the next time you see a “it only cost $2 in 2000” sort of comparison), and its broad subject coverage, make it a treasure for everyone.
Improve 3D graph viewing 4/5
It would be really nice if you could type in a 3D function to graph and be able to manipulate the graph with multitouch.
WolframAlpha is an amazing product. It’s right up there with IBM Watson and other incredible feats of computer science that I can have such a versatile and useful knowledge resource on my phone. Which makes it that much more shocking that you only get a single view of a 3D graph with whatever range and graph angle that Alpha chooses for you. Make a button to go into a detailed graph viewer. I don’t understand what is stopping Wolfram from implementing this. I hope that they read these and incorporate feedback into the product.
Some disappointed 3/5
It always says Computation time out, I can’t use it.
Very useful 5/5
Well worth the price. One of the best apps out there. Very impressive.
It’s was good 4/5
I think this was a good app. I do wish that you could look up the exact paper you are stuck on. Overall this is a great app and I recommend this app for anyone. 👍🏼👍🏼
Wow nice 5/5
This app look like really useful for me. I like math very much, very..very much.
Really amazing 5/5
By Octet to cat
Just slightly inaccurate on some topics on South Africa but otherwise the most powerful piece of software for Applied maths and in general. The topics covered are broad and even if it is not covered it is in development.
Download it now!!
I find Wolfram products are very good and useful as Mathematica is. High quality. This app has many uses from math, unit conversions, general information.So much for my phone.
Very highly recommended
Very good resource 5/5
By Prdro Bubba
Love this app for quick access to random facts
Image input 4/5
By The military man 173873
Good app but image input will revert to stock image if you press more
Unsurpassed utility, broad knowledge base 5/5
Wolfram's products have always been top-notch and Alpha is no different. From spline functions to history and even corny science jokes, Alpha covers it all. Inexpensive and always useful, this app actually influenced me to stay with Apple products.
Even if you are not a STEM major 4/5
By Eat a *ick
This is still an excellent app, with some improvements to how it runs on ios 11 and optimization for higher end iphones (8 8+ X) so that it can take full advantage of the phones processing power this app could easily earn my 5 stars (6 if the team decided to throw in a grammar auto-corrector)
Terrific amount of stuff 5/5
Algebra math general knowledge. It’s all there
Check out the YouTube on what this app can do; it's truly profound!
I used to love this app 1/5
By L to the second
I loved this app...I even paid an extra $.99 last night for the camera feature. I’m not so sure why though. Thought I’d be able to take a picture of the problem and it would solve it, no such luck. Now the app won’t even open! Thanks a lot for nothing WolframAlpha!
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.
Science lover 5/5
By non-fiction reader
Indispensable for anyway with a science or math background or curiosity.
Always useful 5/5
Not only does it do complex calculations, but it also interfaces with many databases of useful statistics ... like census and economic information. A particularly wonderful but is the way it parses a question, displays the results of the parsing, and extrapolates to answer a number of similar questions with tables and graphs. So much fun for a data junkie.
AP Calc Necessity 5/5
Suggestion: create a standalone keyboard app with all the math symbols. It would be perfect for teachers who use an iPad to teach Calculus but can’t type the math problems without an advanced keyboard like the one in this app. Hope this becomes a reality and helps teachers.
-AP Calc AB Student, huge fan of this app
Masters degree in your pocket 5/5
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.
Life saver and a great purchase for any Math Geek! 5/5
Not a day goes by in Calculus where I don't use this app. Great UI and it does a great job of handling user error and understanding what I'm trying to find.
Fantastic app 5/5
For anyone that needs to do math and does have the time to do the working this app is fantastic.
Cannot even get basic facts right. 1/5
This software cannot even get Taiwan’s definition correct. What is “Chinese Taipei”? It is clearly a country but this software choose instead use some vague definition to confuse its users.
The only app you’ll ever need. Just a little patience and thought and it can retrieve amazing results. In a civilized world this would replace Google.
Don’t buy it 1/5
It’s exactly a browser that open wolfram-alpha’s website and U don’t have premium access and options and to analyze photo you should pay 0.99$ 😑
Requires internet connection 1/5
Without an internet connection, this app is only capable of the most rudimentary computations. Because of this there is pretty much no point in using the app over the web app. Do not waste your money on this and just use the web app.
Great for school 5/5
I use this app for school and it works great for math and stuff like that it will give the answers for most algebra and pretty much any simple math questions. Mathway is better if you need the steps to “show your work” but its a significantly more expensive app thats paid annually or monthly. Wolfram has a one time payment for the paid version so if your a student I would recommend it for sure.
Wolfram Alpha 5/5
Settles all dinner table arguments !

Great app 5/5
Any information you want to know...at your fingertips. Might take a minute to learn how to use to its fullest extent but it is worth the $3.
Far more power than I can use 5/5
Square root of (3^2+4^2) ⭐️!
What is the megaton equivalent explosive power of converting three solars masses to energy via m c-squared? I have no idea, but this app does. Far more power than I can utilize!
Everyone needs this app! 5/5
The instant you add this to your phone, your searches are much more rewarding. It adds a depth of knowledge that you just don’t get with the basic search engine.
Ignore the 1 stars 5/5
I recommend that people ignore the one star reviews, those people have no idea how to use the app. They think this is some search engine like google but it’s more suited for running calculations. If you’ve heard of Mathematica and know what the wolfram alpha website is then you are basically getting full support with this app for peanuts compared to what the website charges. It’s not as mathematically powerful as Mathematica but for running quick calculations on the fly, this is indispensable.
A totally different league 5/5
By Tony Hage
The best app you can have.
Update for iPhone X please! 4/5
It has been so long and there seems no new features in this app.
It is good for its price 3/5
Compared with the app for pc, this mobile app is much cheaper. However, I strongly urge that the rotation function should be added in 3D plot.
you can’t it’s an image? UGH
Best calculator out there 5/5
It really does basically do everything you need in a calculator. Now on iPhone! It’s a real life saver for someone who needs to do real computations real fast.
I use it for chemistry 5/5
This app goes above and beyond. It shows you solutions AND the work in between. It balances chemical equations and shows you the skeletal structure for chemical compounds. I’m not just finding answers, I’m learning
