Wolfram Alpha, a computational knowledge engine, has launched its first Windows desktop app through Intel’s AppUp market.
Targeting laptops and ultrabooks, the application sports an optimized user interface that takes advantage of the full computer screen as well as a custom keyboard, extended copy and paste of query results and graphics, and enables easy resizing of the results.
Luc Barthelet, Wolfram Alpha executive director, said that 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 Ultrabooks,” 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.”
There has been no word from the company on whether it will be coming for Mac or Linux system in the near future or so. The app is available for US $2.99, similar to the price of mobile version, on Intel AppUp store.
