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...
B.A.R.T. Helps You Translate Android ROMs the Easy Way
Android is a worldwide phenomenon. As such, many of the developers who work on custom ROM’s are not native English speakers. Just because the official language of XDA is English, that does not mean we can’t show the world community some love.
XDA Member BurgerZ has done just that with his latest creation: B.A.R.T. Short for BurgerZ Android ROM Translator, the basic premise of the program is to translate any compatible Android ROM automatically and hassle-free. So far it features:
1. Translation of any Android based ROM (you need translation files!). Translation source can be like github repository or local folder
2. Deodex ROMs
3. Translation of single APK (JAR)
4. Feedback (you can send any info – bug reports, opinions and other info to the developer)
5. Check for program update
This is an amazing program for those in our community who do not want to waste precious development time having to manually translate every single file in a ROM. If you’re a developer looking to contribute to the translation repository, or are just interested in having an awesome tool to enhance your work, head over to the original thread.

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.
