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 Optimus Black Forums Added
We hadn’t added anything in a while, so after much deliberation and tons of requests, we have decided to give LG Optimus Black owners a little spot to play, hack, develop, and do everything that is normally done on XDA. The device seems a bit on the medium to low end side, considering some of the other higher end devices that LG has been putting out lately. However, it still packs quite a punch with a 1 GHz OMAP 3630 processor from Texas Instruments, 512 MB, and a few other features including a very slim profile, the “now” mandatory 5 MP camera, and a few other perks. The only downside of this device is that it comes loaded with Froyo 2.2.1, which is likely the more reason for so many people requesting a forum for it, so that they can put Gingerbread on it (or Ice Cream Sandwich when the time comes).
Well, the ground has been broken, so now it is time to develop. Please pop in there if you have experience with this device, or if you can help people with things such as rooting, cooking roms, etc.

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.
