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...
FPSECE – PSX Emulator for Windows Mobile
Attention Windows Mobile users! You’ve asked for games and now you have them. Introducing the First PlayStation Emulator for Windows CE (FPSEce), this free emulator allows you to play your old PlayStation 1 (PS1) games on your mobile device after grabbing the images from your PS1 disks and dropping it onto your storage card.
The emulator has been in development for quite some time but it is not popular because of the requirements for a powerful processor. These days it is easier to obtain such a device like the HTC HD2 with a 1 Ghz processor. Fortunately, there is a list of slower devices which some games are playable and can be found on the FPSECE website.
- Customizable transparent on-screen controller
- Multitouch for the HTC HD2
- Plethora of supported games
- Much more!
In order to play your old PS1 games four pieces of software are needed as seen below:
- FPSEce (which you can download for free)
- PocketISO – to compress your images (if needed)
- An image of a PlayStation game you own
- PlayStation-BIOS for use with FPSEce.
Go to this thread to get your game on.

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.
