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...
CrappaLinks Update Removes Link Masking from More Apps
Not so long ago we talked about CrappaLinks, a handful Xposed module aimed at removing link masking in Tapatalk and Tapatalk-based apps such as the XDA Forums application. It’s quite an interesting solution, as it reduces the time and data usage when opening a page, and we all know the latter can be gone in almost no time with our data caps and increasingly speedy Internet speeds.
Initially, the module only worked with Tapatalk-based applications both in free and paid versions. But as of the most recent version, XDA Forum Moderator GermainZ added a handful of other supported services. Right now, CrappaLinks can remove link masking from such popular applications like Facebook, the Google Play Store, the popular Russian service VK, and Scope.
You should keep in mind that Tapatalk and the XDA App need to be updated to version 4 or greater. Otherwise, this module simply won’t work. And with this module, your links will open significantly faster. As this is an Xposed Framework module, you need to visit rovo89‘s Xposed Framework thread to get the newest version of the Xposed Installer. Your phone must also be rooted.
It’s quite obvious that many of you use the aforementioned applications. So if you want to get rid of link masking once and for all, make your way to the module thread and give CrappaLinks a try.

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.
