Not Amazing Really cool app. Meets your basic needs on solving a portion of a problem. Doesn't go into full detail on how exactly to understand solving the solution or understanding the concept. Would recommend for those that need a refresher only.

GOOD but could use a few changes I wish that this app would add ways to calculate volume b/w two curves. Also, maybe let us see the computer calculate problems using both the washer and shells approch

I thank you and my midterm grades thank you. It works beautifully for checking answers and giving full step by step procedures of how to work out problems. A few little glitches but nothing major that ruins functionality. -I would like to see when you enter in an exponent that it goes to a small number like in a calculator not as a carrot ^. Also the ability to take a picture of a problem and scan the numbers in as to not screw up entering the problem in manually with parentheses.

Fancy calculus based interface for the wolfram alpha app, so you don't have to memorize the input language. Same information otherwise, except the keyboard is limited - no letters for entering functions not already included in the keyboard. Swipe entering would be a nice feature, as entering math is tedious even in this app with its function buttons. For sequences and series (my needs) it isn't any more helpful than a TI89, as it doesn't do step by step proofs for convergence, it just list's the test used and yay or nay for convergence - no math shown at all doesn't really help me learn much when stuck. A graph (provided) can show the convergence well enough, so the app should really show the convergence tests step by step. Do something Wolfram Group! The bottom line, with step by step work-throughs for practically everything else, this app will be great if you're in the beginning of your calculus academics. For me, I can only hope this is actually helpful and worth the money for the rest of my Calc III class.

Doesn't go into as much detail as one would expect. Developers also don't respond to emails.

Amazing Enter any question and it will show you step by step answers. Only tricky part is knowing how to plug in the questions. I love it!

Doesn't go into as much detail as one would expect. Developers also don't respond to emails.

Useless Get the wolfram alpha app for 1$. It does the same thing

Like it but... There is a problem with the "complete the square" way of integrating.

times out Constant time out when i try to calculate limits. 1* until its fixed

Don't regret it. The keyboard you provide is garbage, but other than that it's good.

Doesn't launch The app won't launch and I can't request for a refund

Sum of all good things Quite useful when I'm stumped by a problem or want to confirm answers. My professor tells stories of students cheating this app. They usually don't show work or give a decimal answer rather than a precise answer, so nuts to them.

Overall functionality The quality of the app is splendid! It saves my time while working on long, boring integral computing problems. Fab.

Network error Cannot compute anything, even simple arithmetic, without first connecting to wolframalpha and then getting a network error.

We apologize for the inconvenience. We have released an update that should address the issue. Please let us know if you are still having problems by emailing us at android-support@wolframalpha.com. Grrrreat I love the step by step features and its very accurate. Very helpful when you want a blunt definition of calc functions too.

The design is really old. The functionality is great but the design resembles a very old looking app.

Please update this! This app was excellent and a must for calculus students as far as I'm concerned. A week ago I would have rated this five stars. However, since the latest android update, it no longer works. The keyboard doesn't show up and I cannot even access preferences within the app. It's now essentially useless. EDIT: Since the latest update, this is back to normal on my phone and I'm so pleased with it. The reason I only gave it a four instead of a five is because it no longer works with my tablet and that just sucks

We apologize for the inconvenience. Could you please provide us with more information regarding the issues you may be experiencing on your tablet? Email us at android-support@wolframalpha.com. Garbage This has not worked since I paid for and installed it. Nothing is more irritating than paying for something and getting nothing to work, except limits. Constantly says its stopped working...it never even started.

I would give it NO Stars if I Could! why did I pay for this App if I Can't use it!? Horrible app!!! I will rereview the app if It gets fixed but it keeps Closing no matter what I input!! I also thought of buying Other Wolfram apps but I Wont now if this Keeps Up

We apologize for the inconvenience. Could you please send us more specific information regarding the problems you are having? We appreciate as much information as you can provide. Email us at android-support@wolframalpha.com. I love it Great for my classes. I don't understand the solution to: 2x/(x+2)<4. According to the app its x>-2 x<-4. But when i do it on paper it gives me x>-4. It doesnt have stepbystep solution.

Used to work then I paid now useless When evaluating anything the app crashes them asks if you want to report the crash then it reopens like its fine... I've uninstalled, reinstalled no matter what I do it crashes trying to evaluate anything.

!!!DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!! Keeps crashing. I pay'd for this and it does not work at all. Also e-mailed company for a refund and never received a reply.*jerks*

We apologize for the inconvenience. We are unable to replicate the issues on our devices. Please send us more information by emailing us at android-support@wolframalpha.com. Was a great app This all worked great until I upgraded to android 5.0.5 then the so stopped working. I could open the app input data but then when I pressed calculate the app would report that it had to close

Problem Force closing on Samsung Galaxy tab 2 GT-P3100. I'm big fan of Wolfram, but this is disappointing. But after several restarts of device and "wipe cache partition" force closing happens rarely:):):):):):):)

Working perfectly. Has everything you need to pass calculus 1. Ive paid tutors hundreds for what this app explains.

Not working on Tab 3 No matter what I enter as an expression to calculate, the app force closes.

Please fix This app is amazing and has everything and helps so much but recently any calculation results in a force close. Please fix I need this app

Good app Overall it is helpful to have this app. Occasionally there are problems that this won't show the steps for. Also sometimes the steps don't explain how they got from one point to the next. But I do use it as one of several references.

Thank you for reporting this issue. We are working on updating the app's compatibility with Android Lollipop. If you have any other questions, please email us at android-support@wolframalpha.com. Useful but limited This app is good IF your particular problem has step by step solutions. They are not always available. Also,the keyboard is limited and it can take some time to enter things in just the right way for the app to understand it. It would be better if the input for the app was more like the input on the regular Wolfram web site. Requires internet connection to work. Still probably the best option available for now.

I completed a calculus course with this app Calculus has been a demon from my college career because I struggled so much. I took a MOCC class using this app as my right-hand-man and completed it! I'm thrilled. Easy to use. Only gripe is that you need to know trig identities to fully use calculator. Great app!

BETTER OFF WITH WITH THE NORMAL WOLFRAMALPHA APP I've used both for Calc II and the keyboard is frustrating. I keep going back to the normal app to get the correct answer. There have been many times this app has given me the wrong answer. How do I get my money back?

Worth more than your textbook! I am usually too lazy to write reviews, but I have been using this app through Calc I & Calc II, and every time I use it, I feel sorry for everyone who doesn't have it. Whereas your textbook shows you the correct answer to some problems, this shows you step-by-step for ALL of them!

The keyboard is bad but the rest is great The main problem with this app is the really bad design of the keyboard which takes some use away from the app. Seriously they need a new keyboard design and it would be 5 stars to me.

Great app Great APP, helped me a lot of times... But it's not working anymore! The keyboard doesn't appear, so I can't type the equations. Recently updated to lollipop, maybe that's the problem...
