The Wolfram|Alpha App for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad is now on sale for back-to-school! Now through September 12, you can download the Wolfram|Alpha app from the App Store for only $0.99.

The Wolfram|Alpha app gives you answers and access to expert-level knowledge whenever and wherever you need it—whether balancing chemical equations in the lab, studying finance on the bus, or calculating the number of calories in your breakfast as you’re hustling down the quad.

You only have to buy it once, leaving more change in your pocket! And with the app’s four specialized keyboards, you just might find yourself leaving your calculator at home.

The price $.99 looks very like $99. I suggest you make it $0.99.

Great promo… My daughter who is in college demanded an iPad and I got it for her this year because I know it will be very useful for her lessons. Now this application is very useful tool and good thing it is on sale. I don’t have to worry much on the budget.
