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...
AmazonIt! Barcode Application
Shopping at your finger tips is becoming more literal than you can believe. Often times, shopping to compare prices on the internet using your computer is not an option. XDA member zaijian developed AmazonIt! for WM, so you can search not just the price but read reviews and send an email of the product information. What’s even better about AmazonIt! is the barcode scanning feature. Within seconds you can be searching for better prices rather than standing in one place wondering if the price you’re seeing is a good deal. To top it off, AmazonIt! will show you if the price of a product has changed since the last update.

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.
