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...
Android 4.4.2 Now Rolling Out to the AT&T HTC One, OTA Captured!
Just yesterday, we talked about how Android 4.4.2 had begun rolling out to the T-Mobile HTC One. We also mentioned that a similar update was on its way for the AT&T HTC One in the very near future. Well, that time is now here, as the 4.4.2 update has begun rolling out for AT&T’s variant of the device.
The update, which comes in at software version 4.18.502.7, started rolling out early this morning. As expected, it packs Android 4.4.2 laced with Sense 5.5. Naturally, this is a staged rollout, meaning that not every device will receive the update immediately. However, thanks to XDA Senior Members clsA and smoley, we have a pair of mirrors on AndroidFileHost and Dropbox, which can be flashed through the stock recovery.
Head over to the Android 4.4.2 update thread to get in on the discussion. And if you’re looking to get in on the update a bit early, head over to clsA’s AndroidFileHost mirror and smoley’s Dropbox mirror.

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.
