Our ever-growing family of Wolfram|Alpha-powered iOS apps is gaining two new additions today, including the first in our new Professional Assistant series, as well as another entry in our Wolfram Course Assistant Apps. Launching today for iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone are the Physics I Course Assistant and the Network Admin Professional Assistant App. We designed our Professional Assistant Apps with working professionals in mind. They include content specific to each profession and reference information a professional may look up over the course of a normal day.
The Network Admin Professional Assistant is a useful addition to a network admin’s IT toolbox, whether at home or on the job.
Using the app, a network admin can utilize such features as data transfer calculators, TCP/IP calculators and converters, satellite information including altitude and azimuth, and more.
The app is also handy when generating passwords on the fly:
The Physics I Course Assistant is the latest in our series of Wolfram Course Assistant Apps, designed specifically with an optimized keyboard to help those taking introductory physics classes.
The app assists with multiple topics covered in Physics I classes, including forces, linear and rotational kinematics, celestial mechanics, and more. For example, it can help calculate the forces and motion of a block or ball on an inclined plane:
It can also be used to calculate the gravitational force between two point masses using Newton’s law of universal gravitation. Just enter both masses, and the app will do the rest of the work:
