Wolfram|Alpha Brings Its Line of Mobile and Tablet Apps to PCs & Ultrabook™ Devices

Champaign, Illinois—April 26, 2012—Wolfram|Alpha, the leaders in computational knowledge, today announced an initiative to bring all Wolfram mobile applications—including the #1 reference app, the Wolfram|Alpha App—to PC desktops and laptops through the Intel AppUp℠ center.

Wolfram|Alpha has rapidly become the world's definitive source for instant expert knowledge and computation. Wolfram|Alpha Executive Director Luc Barthelet said this partnership marks the first delivery of Wolfram|Alpha's computational knowledge to the world of PC apps.

"We're delighted to bring the polished UI from our mobile and tablet devices to the PC, specifically laptops and Ultrabook™ devices," said Barthelet. "We have a growing line of mobile apps and are looking forward to bringing all of them to the AppUp center by the end of the year."

The Wolfram|Alpha App for PCs features an optimized user interface that takes advantage of the full PC screen. The app also features a specialized keyboard, easy resizing of results, and extended copy and paste of query results and graphics.

Students and professionals use Wolfram|Alpha in a variety of subject areas. Students can enter their specific homework problems and get immediate answers, including a "Show steps" feature for math-related queries. Later this year, Wolfram|Alpha will release its series of Course Assistant Apps through the AppUp center in subjects such as calculus, astronomy, physics, and chemistry.

Other specialized Wolfram|Alpha-powered apps include resources for professionals and in-depth reference materials in a vast array of subject areas. To see a preview of what apps will be available on the store this year, please view the complete collection of Wolfram|Alpha-powered apps here.

The Wolfram|Alpha App for PCs is available for purchase for $2.99 starting today.
