A new computational search engine app called WolframAlpha is going to land in the Android Market today. The app has been available on other OS’ previously. The Android version will sell for the same $1.99 that the iPhone version goes for.
Users can download the app and then search ten trillion different knowledge facts and tens of thousands of computational models using voice keywords. This app is a bit confusing as to the purpose it serves. The app lets you get all sorts of numerical data on science, engineering, health, nutrition, and tons more.
Folks on a diet for instance can type in a specific food and get nutritional facts. It also works sort of like the Google calculator where you can enter a math problem and get the answer. The app first hit the iPhone with a big price of $50 and failed. It presumably sells better at $1.99 on both platforms.
