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...
Today is a big day for the XDA-Developers community. We’re officially launching our first sister site, iPhone-Developers.com. We created this site because many members requested to have an iPhone section on XDA, and we wanted to oblige these requests in some way. But instead of putting iPhone development within the XDA forums, we decided to launch a separate site with a separate server and a separate admin (that’s Arbre), ensuring that we don’t clutter XDA (we know the forum index is already long enough!) or slow the site due to increased traffic.
While iPhone-Developers and XDA-Developers are separate sites, XDA members can instantly copy their important account data to iPhone-Developers by hitting the “Import XDA Account” button in the upper right corner of the new site. All XDA usernames are reserved on iPhone-Developers, so there is no chance of someone taking your username.
We’re not exactly sure what will become of iPhone-Developers, as these things tend to take on a life of their own (as was the case with XDA many years ago). Currently, it serves as a fantastic resource for discussion of app development and Jailbreaking–the site offers app reviews, a terrific Jailbraking wizard, and a variety of how-to guides. We hope that iPhone-Developers will do for the iOS world what XDA has done for Android and Windows Phone, and we invite you to take a look at the site and make a few posts in the forums.

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.
