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...
Ditch Your TV with TV Shows Stream for Android
It looks like as our devices become more powerful, they get the ability to incorporate activities performed by other pieces of equipment. Watching TV on your devices has been a paramount piece of development for several different OS (started on WM and bled onto Android). XDA member KuRouZu has released TV Show Stream, which is a an app to stream TV shows directly to your Android devices. The app links to several sources including Megavideo and can provide the user with hours upon hours of entertainment with full episodes of their favorite shows. The app itself is very well made with a very intuitive UI and, best of all, easy to use.
There are two versions of this app, one which is limited to a certain number of shows, but free. You will require Froyo (Android 2.2) and Flash Player to use this app.
We have been working on this app, is my fourth android app.
The aplication searchs over internet for tv-shows links capables to be played directly on your device, with full screen support using megavideo and other hosting services. The search resoult are shown in a intuitive and easy to use interface.
You can find more information in the app thread.

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.
