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...
Launch Your Apps a New Way with AppSpace
I’m willing to bet that most of you out there have a section of your home screen that contains shortcuts to the applications that you use most frequently. Whether its the traditional eight icons under a giant clock or tucked away on the periphery in an attempt to your main screen neat and tidy, most of us have a patch of icons sitting somewhere that we’d rather swipe across to than open the app drawer.
There are a wealth of options available when it comes to finding a quick and easy way to access your most frequently used apps. Just look at the recently featured Homeflip for a great example. XDA Forum Member KaFrEEkAbOom, however, decided to add a new spin on the grouping of icons together on the home screen and developed AppSpace.
A simple application in the form of a widget, AppSpace allows you to replace that irregular looking gaggle of icons in favor of a single image containing numerous clickable areas, each assigned to a specific application. The spaces themselves take the form of locations packed with objects such as phones, calendars, and pictures—all of which are ready to be associated with any application that you choose.
Check out the original application thread for more info on AppSpace. And if anyone happens to know the correct collective noun for a group of icons, then please let me know in the comments below. Otherwise I think I’ll stick with gaggle.

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.
