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...
ClockworkMod Recovery Hits HTC EVO LTE
For a phone that was just released, it can be said with no argument that the development for the HTC EVO LTE has been on fire. The device, which has already been rooted also has a few mods available. So where is the custom ROM and kernel goodness?
XDA Elite Recognized Developer toastcfh has ported the popular ClockworkMod Recovery to the EVO LTE, giving users the ability to flash custom ROMs, kernels, and modifications, as well as perform system backups. In the thread, posted by XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy-, users will find the method to getting the recovery onto their devices.
Obviously, one must be rooted and HTCDev unlocked before attempting. The recovery is still in early stages. Thus far, it’s been confirmed that the big features like Nandroid backups and flashing update.zip files work. However, it’s been established that USB Mass Storage and the Touch Screen do not work just yet. Those waiting for a fully functional and stable recovery may want to hold off for a bit longer. However, for the flashaholics out there, it should be stable enough to relieve that flashing itch.
One really cool thing about the recovery is that it is boot writable. This means that kernels can be flashed in recovery, as though the device were s-off. Thus, users won’t have to use fastboot to flash kernels.

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.
