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 Transformer TF300T Gets 4.1.1 AOSP Jelly Bean
Jelly Bean has been rolling out across XDA at a fervent pace. Between it being released for the latest Nexus devices and developers releasing it for a variety of other devices, Jelly Bean is quickly making its way everywhere.
One of the most recent devices to get a fresh taste of Jelly Bean is the ASUS Transformer TF300T. Developed as a preview for the much anticipated CyanogenMod 10, XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD got Jelly Bean 4.1.1 working on the TF300T until CM10 was complete enough to compile from.
As is to be expected for early builds of Jelly Bean, the ROM is a little rough. About half of the main features work, and about half don’t work. The current list of working features include:
– Audio playback
And what still needs fixed:
– Audio volume (is stuck at either 0 or 50%)
– Audio recording likely
– HW Video playback (but software playback works)
XpLoDWilD has asked that users with a little bit of testing experience be the ones to flash it, as it is a rough build. The installation process is a little unique as well. Users looking to flash the ROM will have to flash it over custom recovery then flash a boot.img through fastboot before rebooting, so be sure to read the instructions carefully.

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.
