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...
Equilibrio Sense: A Dream that Never Became True
After reading the title, you might be wondering: What the (…) is Equilibrio Sense? Well, it is a theme for HTC Sense for Windows Mobile. Dark Ninja and I have been working on it for quite a while now. This summer, I have been trying to find the perfect design, with nice clean graphics and balance. More than 20 different design concepts were made, but there was only one we were really satisfied with.
Very soon though, when we (Dark Ninja and I) were starting with the actual developing progress, we discovered that it would be an immense job and would take a lot of time. Yet, we continued because of the positive feedback from several people and because of our will to make a serious premium theme for HTC Sense. Then suddenly, there were some unexpected changes in the development of Android for the HD2. Its popularity had increased dramatically. I noticed that Windows Mobile became less and less popular, that it was dying. It was in this situation that we were wondering if it would be of any use to continue the theme. Because if there is no demand, why would we supply it then? We think it is not worth developing for a dying operating system. After all promises, development, and design concepts, we decided to cancel this – in our opinion- beautiful theme.
So what do you think? Is it worth developing for a dying operating system? Or isn’t Windows Mobile dying yet? Let us know in the comments below!

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.
