How To Mount USB External Harddisk(s) To Your Xoom
Want to be able to mount multiple harddisks to your Xoom? XDA forum member hawk2k8 has written a guide on how to do this with support for NTFS partitions, thanks to another guide found on the web.

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.
