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...
Forums Added for the New HTC One, Google Glass, Ouya, and More!
Just two days ago, we brought you live coverage of HTC’s launch event for the HTC One. We also gave you a preliminary glimpse of how well it performs by putting it through a few standard benchmarks. The device features a powerful quad-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor (APQ8064T), 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of storage, a 4.7″ 1080p Super LCD 3 display with 468 ppi, a 4 MP “Ultrapixel” camera with an f/2 lens and large pixels, and a 2300 mAh battery. All this is housed in a sleek, 9.3 mm all-aluminum enclosure that feels thin due to its tapered edges and sub-4 mm minimum thickness. Now, we’ve given it a place in our forums. All that’s left is for the device and kernel source to be released, an unlock method, and for developers to get their hands on the device.
In addition to the HTC One, we’ve also created a forum for Google Glass. While not a smartphone or tablet my any stretch of the imagination, Glass presents a very interesting prospect of a wearable computing device that aids you in your day-to-day activities. And what better way to aid in its development than to give our developers space to share ideas and concepts?
Next, we have a forum for the HTC Butterfly. A cousin to the Droid DNA, the device features similar specifications with its 5″ 1080p Super LCD 3 panel and quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The device features 16 GB of storage and 2 GB of RAM. It also features an 8 MP camera and an f/2 lens for better low light capabilities.
Rounding out the list, we also have forums for the Ouya gaming console and for the latest trend in (affordable) wearable computing: smart watches. Which are you most excited about? Let us know, and feel free to visit the forums listed below!

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.
