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 Your Appointments On Your Lockscreen With Lockscreen Calendar
Adding stuff to make your Android lockscreen be more productive than it currently is seems to be a thing that has interested our devs since the times of S2U2. The currently available lockscreens for the little green robot offer a wide variety of functionality from music player controls, to picture viewing, to even launching certain apps. However, a simple thing like Appointments being displayed seems to have gone missing from the minds of our devs. If you heavily rely on your device to remind you of what you need to do, then you should really check out what XDA Recognized Developer j4velin has prepared for you. Lockscreen Calendar brings that small missing bit of aforementioned functionality back into our lockscreens. The app switches the alarm notifications that do show on the screen by your upcoming calendar appointments. Now, you cannot longer excuse yourself from forgetting an appointment as all you need to do to remember is hit the power button and look at your screen.
The app is still rather buggy, but it has come along nicely since the original conception. Please help the dev by leaving your feedback for further improvement of the app.
Just made another small app which reads the next upcoming calendar events and shows them on your lockscreen (in the text field where normally alarm apps show the next alarm).
You can find more information in the application thread.

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.

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.
