Remember the $50 Wolfram Alpha app for iPhone and iPod Touch? Well looks like they have been doing brisk business, regardless of the hacks to use Wolfram Alpha for free. The Wolfram Alpha team just dropped a PR email on us, saying that they were now on the What’s hotlist in Apple app store.
We are happy to announce that the Wolfram|Alpha App for the iPhone and iPod touch popped up on the App Store’s "What’s Hot" list today. We are delighted that Apple selected the app to be featured, recognizing the intense interest and excitement being shown in Wolfram|Alpha.
We did check it out, and found that the app is definitely on the What’s Hotlist and has also been in the Top Grossingsegment when it launched.
It is always good when someone does good business, but considering the price, we would definitely not buy it. Have you purchased the Wolfram Alpha app from the app store? What are your thoughts about it? Do let us know through your comments.
