Wolfram Alpha Lands on Android, Will Set You Back $2

While Google will always have a special place in our hearts as a search engine, it has never been that great for precise answers to your search. Enter, Wolfram. The new search engine that launched last May has finally released an Android app. The search engine takes pride in giving you precise answers, instead of links to pages that may (or may not) contain said answers. For example, typing in “android” prompts WolframAlpha to give you the information  “Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google that is based upon a modified version of the Linux kernel”.  Pretty great.

Some may point out that the price tag on the app will set you back $2, but isn’t information priceless?

Anyone gonna download this?

    Went ahead and spent the $2. Found out that my wife and I were both born on Thursdays. Who knew?

    I still don’t really get the whole Wolfram thing. Google works fine for me. Plus, I can’t help but think of Wolfram & Hart whenever I see the name.

    How is it any different than pointing your browser of choice to m.wolframalpha.com? (Aside from the $2)

      From the looks of it, nothing, except it is a little faster on the app.

    Well I thought ‘android’ was a robot designed to look like a human, so the answer is not so precise after all.

    I think I’ll wait until this Wolfram thing makes it as far as beta. 😉

    Don’t get me wrong, wolframalpha is nice, but there’s no way I’m spending $2 on an app that has a free website that does everything the app does.
