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...
Humble Bundle Comes To Android, Pay What You Want For Four High-Quality Games
Most gamers and deal-hunters have probably heard of or even bought some Humble Bundles already, but for those not in the know, here’s the deal (quite literally): For a price that you choose yourself, you get a bundle of high-quality games that work cross-platform and without any type of DRM restriction. The Humble Bundles are designed to promote the work of indie developers, so while they may not include your typical standard gaming fare, the games included are usually extremely high-quality ones.
Each bundle is only available for two weeks, and usually a new one comes out every month or so. But while past bundles all consisted of PC games – for Windows, Mac and Linux – this time, Android versions are added into the mix. These are the games included:
All of these games have earned lots of critical acclaim from reviewers and players alike, so you most definitely can’t go wrong with them. To prevent people from paying only $0.01, however, there’s a catch: You only get World of Goo if you pay more than the average price. So, don’t be cheap!
What’s more, you can choose how the money should be distributed between the game developers, charities and the makers of the Humble Bundle themselves. One of the charities this time actually is the Electronis Frontier Foundation, which, among other things, is working on getting legal Megaupload user data recovered (the popular filehost has been shut down a few weeks ago).

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.
