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...
Keep Track of Your CPU, Device Sensors, and Colors with S Tools+
Pretty much everyone reading this article can be considered a power user. And what do power users love? We long to know as much as humanly possible about everything in the world around us. Now thanks to XDA Forum Member naman14‘s new app S Tools+, we can at least get part of the way there.
S Tools+ is a collection of some rather useful, though slightly unrelated, utilities. The application displays your CPU frequency (and how much time was spent at any given speed), a full sensor data readout from all of the sensors on your device, a color picker to find the color value (both RGB and hex) for any image, a digital compass, and information about your device itself. Essentially, S Tools+ serves as the Swiss Army Knife of the Android app world in that it can accomplish quite a few tasks, and it takes up minimal space while doing so.
You can get started with S Tools+ by visiting the application 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.
