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 Windows Phone 7 OEM Apps Dumped And Available
XDA member fb401 comes bearing some gifts from the world of LG and Windows Phone 7. Surely, the carriers and manufacturers are putting a lot of time and effort into the apps that they create for mobile devices, but as we are all a little bit envious, we want to have them for other devices as well. With that in mind, the dev has dumped the OEM apps for the LG Panther and has shared them with the rest of the community. It is worth noting that, while the XAP are available, many of them are specifically coded to work only on the devices they were meant for. So, until someone comes through and ports these apps (or breaks the code that locks the apps to the specific device), there may not be a lot of use for many of them.
If you feel that you may be able to help in porting these apps to other Windows Phone 7 devices, or at least getting them to work, please feel free to stop by the thread.
I know some people have been looking for these. Hopefully opening these up can possibly give us undocumented access to the camera and other functions, as well as someone possibly helping me with coming up with registry and file editors.
You can find more information in the dump 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.
