And the award for my favorite iOS app goes to ...

I'm amazed how often the question 'What's your favorite iPhone/iPad app?' comes up. Well, for all those who are interested, here's my current favorite iOS app ... and it's not Angry Birds!

I'm amazed how often the question 'What's your favorite iPhone/iPad app?' comes up. Well, for all those who are interested, here's my current favorite iOS app ... and it's not Angry Birds!

No, it's not Angry Birds (don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing Angry Birds, it's an awesome game), in fact my favorite app isn't a game. It's also not a Twitter client (I seem to have about half a dozen installed though always seem to end up using Osfoora).

And my favorite app isn't Pocket Informant/Pocket Informant HD either. Again, an awesome app, and one that I use a lot, but it's not my favorite.

My favorite app is ... <drum roll please> ...

WolframAlpha.

ot a search engine, but a 'computational knowledge engine.'

I love Wolfram Alpha because I can throw all kinds of weird stuff its way and it'll usually throw the answer right back at me. Pi to a 1,000 digits? Not a problem! Mass of the moon? Easy! Blood alcohol content 4 hours after three drinks? Piece of cake!

I know, I know, I can get all that by going to the WolframAlpha website in a browser and save myself $1.99, but I just like having the app at hand. It's especially cool on the iPad thanks to the larger screen.

Without a doubt, my favorite app. Two bucks well spent!
