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...
Deepshining ROM For HTC HD7 Updated With 8107 Build And Custom Marketplace
There aren’t many custom ROMs for Windows Phone 7 devices because, let’s face it, there simply isn’t the same kind of need as there was on Windows Mobile (or still is on Android). But nonetheless, with some Windows Phones getting unlocked and everything, custom ROMs have emerged for them, and one of the most popular ones is Deepshining for the HTC HD7.
The Deepshining ROM by recognized developer dotcompt has recently been updated to the 8107 build, which fixes some bugs such as the disappearing keyboard. Besides that, some useful tweaks like the SMSBackup utility have been added.
The biggest news here, however, is the Deepshining Marketplace, which allows you to install and update homebrew apps such as Supreme Shortcuts and more directly from your device. Sure, homebrew marketplaces are nothing new, but previous attempts such as Bazaar, while arguably well done, haven’t really caught on for lack of support; baking a marketplace right into a popular custom ROM should increase adoption rates considerably, we’d presume.

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.
