Know Your Way Around Campus with My Uni for Android
If you are currently attending Melbourne University (or any university for that matter), then this app created by XDA member qubit76 may come in handy. My Uni is an editable mapping application with points of interest that will allow you to make it to class on time, every time by guiding you through the maze that is your school. The app offers lots of options to customize like your time table, most frequented social areas, and student life activities. The dev has also added a set of satellite picture layers to make the app more visually appealing. This is particularly useful for freshmen and sophomores who are still getting their feet wet in their new home.
If you attend the University as well, please help the dev out with feedback and your own additions to the app.
I just released my first app on the market and thought it would be good to share with the xda community. It’s basically interacts with my web site serving a mashup of google maps with an open street map layer on top for better detail and is editable unlike Google Maps. So if your at Uni, could you please give it a try and leave some feed back to let me know how you got along with the app and any opinions about it.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
