Back-to-School Offer: Wolfram Alpha App for Cheap

The team behind popular computational knowledge engine Wolfram Alpha has recently announced that the Wolfram Alpha app, which works on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is on sale as part of a back-to-school offer. Until the 12th of September, the app will set you back a mere $0.99.

If you would like to get the Wolfram Alpha iPhone app, you can get it from the App Store here. Before you rush off to get the application, perhaps you would like to know what it has to offer. Here are some Wolfram Alpha iPhone app highlights:


- The app is connected to Wolfram Alpha’s supercomputing cloud. This allows it to bring the Wolfram Alpha knowledge engine experience to the mobile user.
- It can be used by pretty much anyone, but the team at Wolfram Alpha highlighted these category of users in particular: financial analysts, physicians, scientists, engineers, students, teachers, journalists, parents, economists, nutritionists, systems analysts, marketing managers, pilots, sportsmen.
- The app’s user interface is specially designed for the iPhone. Consequently the UI features a special notation keyboard, customized iPhone output, editable history, and it integrates with native iPhone services (like Maps).
- Easily get an answer to all sorts of questions, spreading across countless domains.

When the Wolfram Alpha app was initially launched (that was back in October 2009), it cost a staggering $49.99. Back then iPhone users had a choice: they could either pay the rather steep price and get the app, or they could simply access the mobile optimized Wolfram Alpha site at and get the same functionality for no charge. But Wolfram Alpha pulled the rug from under their feet when it announced that it would drop the mobile optimized site.

Then in April 2010 the Wolfram Alpha team had a sudden change of heart. The team decided to drop the price of the Wolfram Alpha iPhone app down to $1.99, and get the mobile optimized Wolfram Alpha site back up and running. The team even decided to offer refunds to all the users who bought the app for $49.99.
