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 iRail Train Times Information for Belgium
XDA member profete162 created an open source application to get real time information about trains system in all Belgium for your Android device. This ambitious project has the intention to make an application to get real time information for train, subway, and bus everywhere in the world, with the first development successfully tested and running in Belgium.
The developer invites everyone that is willing to participate to jump in on the project.
Currently, the website and Android app are fully working but more to come. Please leave feed back.

I just wanted to talk to you about a community project that is really growing fast and will become something huge soon! We really need the help of the xda community to make it available everywhere. So please take the time to read, forgive my english knowledge and typos and contact me to have more infos.
iRail.be is an attempt to make transportation time schedules easily available for anyone. We are doing this by creating an Application Programming Interface. This interface is implemented in PHP and can be reused by various of other projects.
Our main site consists of a very easy mobile website to look up time schedules using our own API.
I think that we all have smartphones (iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, WebOS, Bada) to get real time information.
One topic that should interest everyone is public transport, because while waiting for a train, subway, bus, you have your phone in your hand and you wonder “When will my vehicle arrive?”
Sometimes, you have some electronic panels on the station, but most of the time, these panels does not provide info you need or you are not at the station.
You can find more information here.

XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. 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.
