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 Your Social Networking in SNOView
For many users, social networking is an integral part of the Android smartphone experience. Keeping up to date with friends on Facebook, hanging out on Google+, or seeing your friends’ dinner on Instagram all require a whole range of separate apps, which slow down your phone, take up large amounts space, and are weighed down by unnecessary features and functions.
XDA Forum Member MOST2K2 developed SNOView, an app that brings together the biggest social networks including Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Instagram, and RSS feeds into a unique yet simple interface. The app consists of vertically scrolling tabs, which display the feed subscribed to, and once pressed, show an expanded view of feed along with a vertically scrolling 3D cover flow of subscribed feeds and networks. The app allows users to favorite stories and view them in their entirety with either the default web browser or SNOView’s built-in browser. There are also various customization options allowing users to set the update frequency, whether to automatic update over WiFi, and four app aesthetic themes.
SNOView presents all of the biggest social networks together in one single app for Android users. Well-polished and unique in design and interface, SNOView is available for all device running Android versions 2.1 and newer and free in the Play store. If this interests you, make sure to head over to the original thread for more details.

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.
