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...
Fuel Calculator App Helps Determine if You Can Go that Extra Mile
Ever since the the gas prices took an unexpected hike, people have been more closely monitoring their gas usage. Many even have it down to how much they allow themselves to spend out of every paycheck. There is now an application for Android that helps you monitor your gas mileage more precisely so that you can squeeze every last penny out of your gas tank.
XDA Senior Member snotyak released the app to XDA. The first few versions of the application were helpful, if a bit simple However, the app has recently undergone some changes to make it work and look better. The latest change log includes:
Updated with Holo styling
Light and Dark theme support
3 different unit settings
Swipe from one tab to another
So not only is this app useful to a single user, but any vehicle that user wants to keep an eye on. Thus, it is perfect for kids with cars or the significant other’s car. With the economy the way it is and the gas prices the way they are, this app could definitely help keep things under control.
For more details and download links, check out the app 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.
