Are there any alternatives to the Wolfram API that are either cheaper or have more free calls?

Is the pricing. And all I can say about that is:

"This has been the worst trade deal in the history of trade deals, maybe ever"

25 dollars per thousand calls comes out to $0.025 dollars a fucking call. That's 2 and a half cents per call.

So if I was publishing an app on the app store using this API I'd need to charge something like at least 10 dollars to use the damn thing. And then I'd still have to cap the number of calls you can do! And that's only if it is successful because it requires a down payment of 1000 dollars every single year as a minimum investment!

So are there any alternative APIs that work similar to wolfram that take in Latex as input (that's very important) and will return solutions? That are not prohibitively expensive?
