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.

Create Folders On Your Windows Phone Homescreen
Windows Phone hacker Jaxbot (quite literally) has brought us another useful homebrew utility: Folders for Windows Phone. It does exactly what it says – you can create folders and pin them as tiles onto your homescreen.
Of course, you’ll need to be developer unlocked in order to sideload the XAP, but interop unlock is not necessary: To add custom apps to folder, it uses a workaround by searching the marketplace for its GUID and pulls the app icon from there as well. Currently, this creates another limitation in that only the US marketplace is supported – most apps can be added just fine, even if you’re located somewhere else, only those few ones that are not available in the US are not supported yet.
It’s still an early release and the developer has promised to fix bugs and add more features over time, so head over to the forum thread and remember to leave some nice feedback.

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.
