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...
CWM Recovery 6 Lands on the HTC Rhodium
Custom recoveries such as the venerable ClockworkMod Recovery are (in addition to Superuser and SuperSU) likely some of the most widely utilized programs developed on XDA due to the functionality they bring and the doors that they open. As such, CWM has been ported to countless devices, and has become the preferred method of flashing custom ROMs onto virtually anything that runs Android. It seems that the CWM fever expanded into devices that were never meant to run this type of recovery image such as Windows Mobile devices. Now, we are all familiar with this thanks to the likes of the immortal HTC HD2 and its ability to run virtually any OS, regardless of platform. However, the HD2 is not the only WinMo device capable of running Android or CWM.
XDA Forum Member jianC just released a version of the famous recovery for the HTC Rhodium (AT&T Tilt 2 or T-Mobile Touch Pro2 for those of you in the US). The device still keeps on getting some support from developers, and the Android project is one of those ideas that are keeping the device alive. This recovery accomplishes standard custom recovery fare by allowing you to perform basic functions such as clearing cache (standard and Dalvik) as well as flashing ROMs and kernels. This is a particularly useful feature for those who have installed Android on NAND (i.e. those who have given up on WM completely).
Installation is accomplished through Fastboot, so make sure that you have the Android SDK on your system along with the proper drivers for your device. The port is fully functional, but any and all feedback regarding bugs is always welcome. If you still have your TP2, take it out for a spin and let the dev know how it is working.
This is just a recovery I compiled from the latest available code from the CM10 source. It does not offer any major upgrade in function from ACL’s latest cwm recovery, but is slightly aesthetically different.

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.
