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...
[LIVE] Casetop May Transform Your Mobile Device into a Productivity Device – XDA Roundtables
It has long been the dream of many technology enthusiasts and road warriors to have to carry only one piece of electronic equipment and still be able to stay in touch. The smaller the electronic equipment, the better. As it stands now, many people carry a phone and a laptop.
There have been many attempts to remedy this situation, such as the Motorola Atrix and its laptop dock. However, this only worked with Atrix handsets. Many tablets have tried as well. The ASUS Transformer line allows users to attach a keyboard, but that doesn’t function as a mobile phone so you are still carrying two devices. And not everyone’s a fan of the Padfone. Well, XDA Senior Member andjohn has begun a KickStarter project called Casetop. The Casetop device promises to turn any phone into a laptop.
We wanted to know how it works, so XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan set up a live interview with the developer of this project. Jordan will ask all about the device, and some questions about what it takes to build something like this.
So check below for a link to the live broadcast when it begins at 8pm Eastern(GMT-4) or check out and subscribe to the XDA Roundtable YouTube Channel.

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.
