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...
LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition Updated to Android 4.4.2 KOT49H, OTA Captured!
A few days ago, we saw the Android 4.4.2 OTA start rolling out for the original two Google Play edition devices: the HTC One GPe and the Samsung Galaxy S 4 GPe. Now, the time has come for the LG G Pad 8.3 GPe as well.
The LG G Pad 8.3 was recently added to the Google Play edition stable just under one week ago. Featuring the same hardware as the highly regarded G Pad 8.3, the GPe device breaks free from its OEM-skinned chains and delivers a pure Google experience. And now with today’s update, it runs Android 4.4.2, which brought a grand total of four code commits.
The 52 MB incremental OTA update is currently rolling out in the form of a staged update. However, those wishing to get their hands on the OTA love a bit early can do so by downloading the update directly from Google’s update servers and performing an adb sideload <filename> from recovery. And don’t forget to visit our LG G Pad 8.3 forums!
Have you already updated your LG G Pad 8.3 GPe to 4.4.2? Do you own a standard G Pad 8.3, and are you planning on using system dumps from the GPe device to build a ROM for the skinned variant? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
[Thanks Ryan for sending in the OTA URL!]

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.
