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...
ASUS TF700T Bootloader Unlocker App Decompiled for Modding
ASUS has a pretty long history of releasing unlocker tools for their devices. We’ve brought you news about these tools before. Unfortunately, not not all of them work perfectly, but many ASUS owners still appreciate the effort. The ASUS Transformer TF700T had its unlocker tool released awhile back, but now it’s been decompiled and the source released.
XDA Forum Member ostar2 took the time to break the unlocker tool down and release the code for modding purposes. As ostar2 explains:
I have fully decompiled and deobfsucated the bootloader unlock tool provided by Asus for the tf700t. I was wondering if someone here would be able to modify it so it would not submit data to Asus and void the warranty. I believe that this would be a great help to any one who owns the Asus Transformer Pad infinity.
It’s pretty well known that similar efforts proved futile with the ASUS Transformer Prime unlocker tool, as the tool requires access to ASUS’s website to get the device-specific unlock token. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be modded for other purposes, or to simply allow the developers to see what exactly is going on.

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.
