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...
I Forgot Mobile Helps You Never Miss a Call Again
There are times when no matter how attached you might be to your mobile device, you inadvertently leave it behind. After all, we are all busy people—many of us with families with needs and wants. And needless to say, their well being comes before our little (and in the case of the Galaxy Note family, not-so-little) devices. Because of this, we are bound to forget the tools that we carry constantly.
Now, this would certainly not be an issue for many, but for those who depend on cellular technology to make a living, forgetting your cell phone at home (or anywhere for that matter) can be a rather problematic start of a day. Missed calls and messages are unacceptable, and could lead to missing out on a multi-million dollar deal or learning of other relevant news.
XDA Forum Member Sanjay RamSwamy designed a tool that takes the weight out of your shoulders in case you do forget your device. No, it is not a “locate my device” tool. Rather, it keeps you informed regarding missed calls and SMS messages while on the go, even if you do not have your phone with you. IFM (or I Forgot Mobile) is an application that sends notifications directly to your Email inbox whenever you receive a call or a SMS and you happen to miss it. The only thing that you will need to make sure is that your device is powered on and has an active data connection. This is a simple tool that could potentially save you from missing that one call you have been waiting for all week.
Sanjay is currently looking for feedback regarding bugs and glitches. Also, if you have suggestions, please make sure that you drop by the thread and let the OP know. Remember, all feedback is good feedback, particularly for ideas such as this.

XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. 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.
