To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
All In One Weather/Battery/Clock Widget for Android
There are several all in one widgets out there in the market that will provide you with information about your city’s weather and current time. XDA member joey3002 wanted something a bit more compact, so he created Maximus Clock. The widget can provide you with time, weather, and battery information, all in a single widget. However, unlike others of its kind like Fancy Widget, Sense, etc, this one has everything encased in the analog clock itself, so the widget itself is rather small, and as such will leave you with the ability to use the remaining real estate in your home screen for other shortcuts/widgets that you may want to have instead.
Please leave some feedback for the dev and suggestions to see if this widget can be improved.
It is a 2×2 widget that shows your battery level around the clock, the current weather inside the clock and of course the analog clock. Its free but I also have a donation ($1.00) one as well.
You can find more information in the widget thread.

There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
