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...
Dolby Sound Enhancement Drivers Ported to Galaxy 3
Many consider stock Android’s music management and sound output to be sub par. This manifests in developer efforts to fix the situation such as equalizer applications and the porting of Beats Audio to every Gingerbread ROM. Since Google is presumably not working on making audio more exciting, it is up to the developers to keep the audio enhancements coming. XDA Senior Member D3HuM4NiZ3D has also ported the Dolby Sound Enhancer to the Samsung Galaxy 3.
Installing Dolby Sound Enhancement will, first and foremost, delete anything even remotely related to Beats Audio on your device if you already have it on there. However, many users agree that Beats Audio delivers too much bass, and Dolby delivers better overall sound quality. Opinions aside, this mod has only been tested on CyanogenMod 7, and not on FroYo or ICS builds for the device. D3HuM4NiZ3D invites anyone to give it a try on the different OS builds but assumes no responsibility if something bad happens.
If this sounds like something you’d like on your Galaxy 3, check out the modification thread. Also, don’t forget to make a backup, especially if you plan on trying this on an unsupported version of Android.

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.
