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...
Custom Xposed Installer Offers Additional Tweaking
We’ve recently talked quite a bit about the fantastic Xposed Framework by XDA Recognized Developer rovo89, along with some help from Recognized Contributor Tungstwenty. The powerful and versatile framework allows users to quickly and easily apply a wide range of modifications. Because modules are installed as APKs rather than flashed through recovery, undoing a modification is as simple as disabling its module and uninstalling the application. However, there’s room for a few additional tweaks in even the mighty Xposed Framework.
XDA Forum Member WisdomSky created a custom installer based on Xposed build 2.1.4 that gives users a few tweaks when choosing between modules to apply. For starters, users are given additional possible actions when a module is clicked from the modules list. Next, the debug log tab is now color coded for increased readability. You can also convert the logs into either HTML or BBCode format, so that you can retain the colors when sharing your logs either here in our forums or elsewhere on the web. Finally, you can customize the order in which modules are executed, allowing for better compatibility in case any given module is dependant on a previous module.
If you’ve needed to control the module execution order or would just like clearer logs, these tweaks help make the already fantastic Xposed Framework just a little bit more powerful. Head over to the original thread to get started.

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.
