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.

Change the Default Pane in Google Play Music with Xposed
Nothing is more annoying than not being able to personalize something to your liking. Android generally gives us so much freedom, so when we’re faced with an exception to this, it’s especially noticeable. Luckily, there are quite often solutions to be found on the XDA forums.
One such application that frustrates many is the popular Google Play Music. Almost all of us know it and use it on a regular basis. And of course, it’s a good application. That isn’t, however, to say that it’s perfect. Google Play Music currently lacks the ability to set a default launch panel.
Luckily, XDA Forum Moderator GermainZ decided to solve this problem by making an Xposed module that lets you select the default pane. With this module, your Google Play Music app will be even more tailored to your own needs. Naturally, you’ll need to make sure that your phone is rooted and that you have the latest version of Xposed Installer on your device.
You can get this module by visiting the Xposed repository or the module thread here on XDA.

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.
