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...
Get Apps2SD Working on the Galaxy Ace
Apps2SD has historically been one of the most used and useful tools in the Android arsenal. It not only allows users with limited internal storage to keep their apps installed, but is still even used today to allow users to keep their internal storage free and clear for things like music.
The method is pretty simple, and only requires a few steps. Most of the installation procedure involves commands from the Ace’s settings menu. Essentially, you are simply partitioning an SD card and installing an application–no big deal.
While APPS2SD certainly does take the load off the internal storage, the developer would like to note:
NOTE: Some widgets or applications that have widgets, don’t work while installed in the SD card. Those must be moved to the internal storage. The same thing applies to any themes you’re using, launcher, camera apps, or anything else you believe should be installed internally.
NOTE 2: Please also keep in mind that when you reboot your phone (or turn it on) anything installed in the SD won’t work until the phone is done scanning the SD card and confirms the item is installed.
As with other implementations of Apps2SD, make sure you move your widget apps back to the internal storage, and be patient when the phone reboots. Otherwise, everything is just peachy.
For those with the Galaxy Ace who want to give this a shot, you can find the full instructions and additional information in the original thread. Be sure to make a backup of your SD card contents before partitioning, just in case something goes wrong!

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.
