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...
APK Changer Brings All the APK Tools Together
Apparently, it’s the season of updating. We’ve already brought you news of APKTool receiving regular updates again and a massive update for
Virtual Virtuous Ten Studios. So to keep with the trend, another apk altering tool has come back from the grave with a whole host of new updates. This time, it’s APK Changer, a year-old apk modifying app that’s gotten some new updates.
Developed by XDA Forum Member furniel, the application is similar to APKTool in that it’s used to compile, decompile, and otherwise modify apk and jar files. Very recently, it received an update that also makes it compatible with M10 files. For those who are unaware, M10 files are commonly used in Sense 4 ROMs. They have a history of being difficult to work with.
Other than the updates, the application works much as it did before. Users or developers looking to use this application need to place the apk, jar, or M10 file in the working folder, start the application, and go from there. Users who have tested the new update say that working with the new M10 files have been a breeze and that so far everything is working pretty well. For anyone developing, modding, or otherwise messing with newer Sense files, this and Virtual Ten Studios are two applications worth checking out.

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.
