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...
HD Icon Pack for Android
XDA member mikebeecham just released the first part of this high definition icon set for your Android device using Launcher Pro. According to the developer, it took almost two months of work to get this collection ready for all to download, so if you want a fresh look on your device step in and please leave feed back.

Well, after nearly two months of fairly hard work designing and (in some cases) redesigning, I’m happy to release my first pack of HD Icons to the Android Community.
This is a project still very much in process, as I see myself adding more packs as time goes on…however I was happy enough with the first 68 icons to release them out in the wild.
There are only two caveats to this release, and I really would like you to take note of this:
1) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read the readme file. I took time to write it, so would appreciate you reading it.
2) You must understand that these are my ‘babies’ in a sense. I poured time into these, so whilst I really really want you to enjoy them, please dont take them and pass any of them off as your own. It would be incredibly disrespectful to me as a designer, and would make you look foolish since I have the PSD files retained for future use!

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.
