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...
HeLauncher Updated to Version 2
It had been a while since featured Launchers here in the Portal. And, since we found out that there was a new version of HeLauncher out in the open, we simply had to put it out there. XDA member TheMuffStuff points us to this new and improved version of HeLauncher, which comes at us packed with new features and capabilities to make our Android experiences better. The launcher features an expanded selection of settings for maximum customizability, different home screen transition animations, fully tremble with 3 themes to choose from, and a lot more.
The new UI is still under heavy development and as such, some bugs are to be expected. Leaving your feedback will certainly help the dev tackle any open issues. So, please do your part.
- Based off of AOSP Launcher2 from 2.3.4
- Three custom themes (Gingerbread, Sense 3.0, Touchwiz 4.0, ALL THE REST FROM He1)
- Transition animations for the desktop
- Blocked applications manager
- More new settings picked for Android users by Android users

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.
