Enter Windows 8, Stage Left [Weekly Recap]

This week on XDA TV, SassiBoB takes the recapital reigns to deliver the sad, so sad news that she is leaving the Weekly Recap to pursue bigger opportunities. And as much as that might cause you to pound your fists on the floor and cry in agony, she musters the strength to recap this week’s news, such as AdamOutler’s release of the Unbrickable Mod for the Samsung Vibrant, and Mike1986’s work to turn the HTC Sensation into the HTC Sensation XE. And in an adorable attempt to rant with the best of them, Bob explains why she thinks Microsoft’s Windows 8 is important to the future of tablets and smartphones, and thus why the addition of the Windows 8 forums on XDA-Developers is an excellent step forward.

PhotoMath: A Math Beginner’s Dream App

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...

Which App for iPhone Do You Wish Was on Android?

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.
