    OK App but the font is too small and no way to change the size

    I bought the wolframalpha app as the website is sometimes useful and I thought it would be handy to have the app with a nice pretty interface rather than using the nook's browser. The app it's self is ok but there is noway (that i have found) to change the font size so it's almost imposible for me to read so i might as well have stuck with the website.

    If the small sized font is readable for you then you might like to have the app otherwise just stick with the website.

    Great app if you need to learn something

    Wolfram Alpha has long been one of my favorite websites to use whenever I need to look up some sort of statistic, and the app works wonderfully for the same purpose. Putting in a term (everything from "Bagel" to "Jellyfish") will give a host of statistics about anything you could want to know. Even more useful is the built-in calculator, which can solve complex equations and even infer based on the question you ask. Fantastic reference tool.

    Amazing

    Wolfram-alpha has been a favorite search engine of mine for a while now, and I can already tell that the app is going to be one that I treasure and turn to frequently. The depth and detail of the information is just amazing. Highly, highly recommended for any student or anyone with a curiosity about our world. The math and science capabilities blow me away, and there is also a wide range of info about all sorts of other things, from the etymology of words to facts about geography and places. Well worth the price.

    Great app

    Love it. I use it often. Even if it is on the web worth the fee to prevent several steps. The amount of info you get is amazing. I have used it to determine the monthly payments of items I want to buy. Has prevented me from overextending my budget.

    Wolfram app

    This app is an awesome reference tool. The power and depth of the information need to be explored to be fully appreciated. Most students will find this a welcome resource once they are aware it exists. Kudos to the authors of this excellent application. I am certain that others will want to contribute to the broadening of the areas covered which are extensive already.

    Best data app and calculator ever

    I am a college student and i use this app daily. Reguardless if you need to calculate, graph, or if you are curios about a random stastic, this app is for you. All data is regularly updated and multiple forms of output are offered. You dont need to be a college student to get use of this app either. This is absolutly worth every penny.

    Great app!

    I have used WolframAlpha on my Mac for awhile now and love it. So I was thrilled to see this app. The app works like a calculator off line and with the WiFi on it's better than a graphing calculator. We also have fun to typing in other (non-math) questions and geting answers. It's akin to flipping through an encyclopedia.

    Awesome

    The best thing is that if you type any resistance value, it will show you five different networks of equivalent standard resistance. Saves a lot of time. Also it's better than any graphing calculator because you can just enter an eqiation and it will solve it and graph it, and give you tons of information. For science types this is an indespensible app!

    Not ready for prime time

    This app performed beautfully on my Nook tablet for about half an hour....then it didn't perform at all. The app only provides a connection to the W/A website, and an alternative presentation format; it really doesn't do anything unless it's connected to the web (which is NOT what is advertised).

    I also went on the W/A website through my PC. It connected just fine, so I bought a "Pro" membership for another 2.99. However, there is no way to indicate this membership status to the Nook app -- which still refuses to connect.

    I will continue to use the web-browser, and will check occasionally to see if there's an upgrade for this app. However, the app is a waste of money, and false advertising to boot!

    I love this app!!

    You can search anything from star charts to binomial theorem and whatever you can think up. It will give you step by step instructions for solving an equation or can even tell you what the population of a country is, just by searching for it. Very useful if you are a student.
