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...
The Metro concept has plummeted into a new brand of Windows Utilities, this new lock screen is one of them. This lock screen was created by Cendaryn, who has separated this from his other projects by giving it its own thread.
This lock screen combines the functions of the current Windows Mobile 6.5 lock screen and the look of Windows Phone 7 Series. At the moment it does not look too exciting, but I’m sure there will be more colors and interesting features coming up as this is only the first release.

What’s new/different compared to the other lockscreen?
- 1. hardcoded background picture
- 2. left aligned text matching the Metro guidelines by Microsoft
- 3. new font “Zegoe” Light and Regular (will be installed with the CAB) matching the Metro design
A word about requests:
I had many requests via PM for changing alignment/site/whatever of the text. I don’t have the time to do this. But what you can do: post your background picture you want to see within this lockscreen. I’ll change that just for you Hint: make a screenshot of your device showing the lockscreen and work with Photoshop or similar “over” the layout so your new background doesn’t “interfere” with the text layout.
The files and more information can be found in the application 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.

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.
