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...
Choose Your Poison with Kitchen Sink for Atrix 4G
When it comes to Android, options are everything. That’s one of the big pluses to owning an Android phone. You can root it if you want, flash whatever ROM/theme/kernel combination that you please. In some cases you can even take your CDMA device to a different carrier. There is no other mobile platform with that level of sharing and options. And now for the Motorola Atrix 4G, the options just keep coming.
XDA Recognized Developer jokersax11 has created a ROM that gives Atrix owners enough choices to satisfy any flasher—for a while anyway. It’s called Kitchen Sink and it lets users choose from a variety of base ROMs such as CyanogenMod and AOKP. Once users choose their ROM, they can then customize their installation as they see fit.
Kitchen Sink is an alpha release right now, so expect there to be a few bumps and bruises. The number of choices are really quite extensive, and cover several full ROMs with options for each one. A few of the options include:
Full cm9 option
Full miui option
Various boot animations
Couple camera apps
Range of fonts
Custom regional GPS files
2 2d lib sets
Google maps selectable with street view
3 music apps
3 keyboard options
2 tts options
Much much more coming.
Still under active development, Kitchen Sink helps usher in a new era of end-user versatility and ROM customization. For more information, download links, a full feature list, and change log, head on 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.
