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...
DFT Team Begin Work on MAGLDR and UEFI for the HTC One
If you ever spent any appreciable amount of time with the venerable HTC HD2, you will undoubtedly be familiar with the name Cotulla. After all, XDA Elite Recognized Developer Cotulla and the rest of the Dark Forces Team developed the vastly powerful MAGLDR bootloader for the device.
As a brief recap, MAGLDR for the HD2 unleashed the full potential of the device, allowing users to easily install an almost limitless number of alternative operating systems, an install an Android recovery, and even play Tetris directly from the bootloader.
Now, Cotulla and the DFT team have begun the journey of bringing similar hackability over to the HTC One. Nothing is available just yet, but given Cotulla’s impressive track record, it’s basically only a matter of time. There are no concrete development goals just yet, but possibilities include installing old school Windows Mobile 6.x, running Windows RT and/or Windows Phone 8, and much more. And once MAGLDR is finished for the One, he is planning on working on UEFI.
Make your way over to the development thread to learn more and keep up on the progress. If you own an HTC One, things may get pretty exciting in the future…

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.
