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...
CloudMuzik Ported to Windows Phone 8, Brings Google Music
Windows Phone 7 enthusiasts may remember an application called CloudMuzik. It was a Google Music client for WP7 that was essential for Google Music fans running the platform because there were no other options. It had some limitations, but was overall a very useful and welcome application. Now, Windows Phone 8 users have access as well.
XDA Recognized Developer snickler, who also released the app for WP7, released the app for WP8 as well. Unlike the early releases for WP7, this release is much more complete with much fewer bugs. The features include:
The application supports the following:
Full Library support
Full Refresh of music library
Refresh of latest songs uploaded
Social sharing of current song
Repeat and Shuffle capabilities
Pinning of Artist, Album, Playlist and Genre to Start
Local song caching
So if you have a Google Music account with a whole bunch of songs, then this is the application you’re looking for. There have already been a couple of updates, so many of the initial bugs and issues have already been fixed, and a few extra features have been added. Just like the release for WP7, the WP8 version is also available in the Windows App Store.

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.
