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...

Are you new on Android but want to enter into cooking world, so you can have your own flavor? Member dsixda just updated his Android Kitchen “very basic” cooking.

I have created a kitchen to address the issue of users who are new to Android and want to start cooking their own ROM right away, but who do not know exactly how to start. I come from a Windows Mobile cooking background, and in comparison, I have noticed that resources for Android ROM cooking are hard to come by. I am new myself to the area of Android cooking, so I am no expert, but I do want to help others with the knowledge that I already have. This kitchen is very basic, but is enough to help you start cooking.
It has support for the following HTC devices:
- Hero / G2 Touch (see this thread for discussion)
- Nexus One (see this thread for discussion)
- Dream / G1 (see this thread for discussion)
- Magic / myTouch 3G (see this thread for discussion)
- Tattoo / Click (see this thread for discussion)
- Droid Eris (see this thread for discussion)
- Desire / Bravo (untested)
- Legend (untested)
- All other rooted HTC Android devices (untested)
Who is this kitchen for?
- Those who are brand new to cooking, although advanced cooks may also find it useful
- Those who want to modify shipped ROMs or someone else’s cooked ROMs to their liking
- Those who are confused by all those scripts and complex commands required for building and extracting
For more information continue on to the kitchen thread.

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.
