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...
Easy Development Studio Helps Developers and Beginners Develop
Any tool that helps in the development of Android is a welcome addition to the veritable arsenal of tools and kitchens out there to help beginners and experts alike make their ROMs everything they can be. Of course, anything that makes the process easier is even a more welcome addition.
XDA Recognized Developer wes342 is developing a set of tools compiled into a studio software that takes the guess work out of ROM making and allows users to put the most possible modifications on their ROMs. There are literally over two dozen features and tools that range from compiling and decompiling .dex files to unpacking and re-packing boot.img files to make up among the most complete Android development tools out today.
The plans for future features at this time include:
Cross Platform ( Linux, Windows, Mac …Etc..)
More Supported Devices
More Supported Roms
More Features (Transitions, Boot animations, Etc….)
And even a few possible features that may be included in future releases:
Source building for any device.

Svn Rom downloading (warm , synergy, ext…)
For those who want to check out this impressive software, you can find the full feature list, download links and instructions for installation and use in the application’s 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.
