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...
iPhone-Developers.com Launched and in Beta
As you may have noticed, XDA’s Sister site has launched in Beta, iphone-developers.com is now open for registration and linking of your XDA account. The site is also looking for volunteers in the news writer and moderator department, so if you’d like to get involved, link your account and PM Arbre about available positions.
Quoted from the site
Our goal at iPD is to help nurture the 3rd-party and ‘jailbreak’ community, and to one day create a site that has the same talent and feel as that of xda-developers itself. We also want to help expand and grow the whole 3rd-party developer community by making jailbreaking easier and more accessible for everyone.
Take a look around, join the fourms, and reveiw an application or two, and let us know what you think! We’ve put a lot of volunteer hours into making all of this possible and we really hope you like it.
Now, go and check it out and report any bugs about the site in the “bug report” thread on the site. Also, check out the announcement thread.

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.
