Using Wolfram Player Pro
Can I use documents intended for Wolfram CDF Player in Player Pro? Yes. Player Pro provides full support for viewing and interacting with .nb and .cdf files. Notebooks saved normally in Mathematica or other Wolfram Language environments have the file extension .nb and can be accessed and edited on the desktop and on mobile and cloud devices. Notebooks saved as .cdf files are interactive in the free CDF Player as well as in Player Pro. Additional features such as data import or text input may be available in .cdf files running in Player Pro.
Is there an upgrade path from Player Pro to Mathematica and other Wolfram Language-based products? Yes. Contact us for more information.
Can I purchase Player Pro on behalf of my users and then supply it with my application? Yes. There are a number of options that will allow you to distribute Player Pro and manage your customer licenses. Volume discounts are available. For more information, visit our licensing page.
Can I create new content using Player Pro? No. If you're making new content, you need Mathematica or other Wolfram Language-based products.
Can I export my work using Player Pro? Yes. Player Pro can export notebooks in a variety of formats and for a variety of applications. In addition, applications can be written to dynamically export user data while running in Player Pro.
Is Player Pro available for iPad? As of November 2016, Wolfram Player is available as a beta release for the iPad. Sign up now for early access.
Is Player Pro available for other mobile devices? We are actively pursuing solutions for all mobile devices. The Wolfram Cloud app lets you view and interact with your deployments on the go, and Wolfram Player will also be available for iPhone soon. Contact us for more details.
What's the difference between .cdf and .nb files? Wolfram notebooks saved as .nb files are viewable but not interactive in CDF Player. Notebooks saved or exported as .cdf files make content interactive in CDF Player and Player Pro.
What's the difference between Wolfram Player Pro and Wolfram CDF Player? Both Player Pro and CDF Player are standalone runtimes for interactive .nb and .cdf files and applications, but Player Pro supports extra features such as data import and text input. For details, see the features comparison chart.
Developing for Player Pro
If my program was developed with an InputField, what kind of data can be entered when it's running in Player Pro? Player Pro accepts numerical, textual and symbolic entries. Input fields will not accept Wolfram Language programs.
What's the process for making my notebooks interactive for Player Pro users? Just save them normally (as notebooks or CDFs) or other Wolfram Language-based products. Content that is dynamically interactive in Mathematica will also be interactive in Player Pro, with a few exclusions. See the developer guidelines for details.
