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.

HD Mini Lockscreen Ported to VGA and WVGA Resolutions
Michyprima has been busy in the Software Development forum, working on a port of the redesigned lockscreen from the HD Mini. It’s gone from its original HVGA resolution to the more common VGA and WVGA variations.
Lockscreen features a simpler, sleeker design than those currently found on Windows Mobile 6.5 devices, and will also show a wider range of notifications (including missed calls, incoming texts and unread emails).
Interested users must remember to disable their PIN lock, as it is not currently featured on this release. Not doing so yet still installing lockscreen requires a hard-reset to make the device usable again.
The port is designed for Windows Mobile 6.5+ and is available as a .cab file in the application thread. Several languages are currently available, including English and German.

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.
