WolframAlpha Intros View On Mobile

  • June 12, 2009
The search engine WolframAlpha has introduced a mobile iPhone interface, not an actual downloadable application, that lets mobile users query and browse the site. The company says in a blog post that the community has asked for an application for the iPhone and other mobile devices.

One issue in providing applications access to content on WolframAlpha through a mobile application is that the layout of the data on the engine is not formatted similar to traditional pages on Yahoo, Microsoft or Google. WolframAlpha's unconventional format, with its graphs and tables, can present obstacles on the small screen. -- Laurie Sullivan
