Control Your Windows 6.5.x X Button

Still in the beta stages the application created by XDA’s own xtep is an amazing add-on to your Windows Mobile 6.5.x device.  If you, like me, are a little upset that Microsoft has taken the memory management control into their own hands then this is definitely worth taking a look at.  Not only is the control of the X button yours again, but so are some other very useful features.  And with the help of scarecrow420 it now has a nice User Interface.

PhotoMath: A Math Beginner’s Dream App

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...

Which App for iPhone Do You Wish Was on Android?

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.
