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...
HTC EVO 3D Camera Gets Temp Fixes on ICS Leaks
Whenever a device gets a new leak, some brave soul has to flash it and figure out what works and what doesn’t. In many cases, there isn’t much wrong but often, the software is incomplete and there’s the occasional force close or signal issue. However, on some leaks—especially ones that aren’t really intended for your device—there are more numerous issues.
Those carrying the HTC EVO 3D may have noticed that on Sense 4 leaks, the camera doesn’t exactly work. While camera functionality is commonly lacking in ICS leaks, you don’t have to suffer from for long. XDA Recognized Developer JoelZ9614 has provided a fix that will get the shutterbugs out there back in action.
The fix, which comes packaged in a recovery-flashable update.zip, fixes some (but not all) of the camera problems. Specifically, users can expect their 2D camera and 2D camcorder to work again, but 3D functionality is still down for the time being. Additionally, you get some classic ICS transition animations. However, half a fix is better than having it broken, so users can expect this fix to be incorporated into various ROMs in the near future.

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.
