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...
M10Tools Going Open Source: Dev(s) Needed
M10Tools is going open source! Need I say more?
Okay, for those of you who don’t know about M10Tools, I’ll explain. In a nutshell, it’s a program that allows you to edit HTC Sense. Normally Sense is very challenging to edit directly, but with M10Tools a world of opportunity opens up to people with coding skills. Over the past few months things have really taken off, and now the developer wants to take it open source!
There’s a snag in the plans though. It seems one of the original devs has decided to quit, leaving an opening for new developer. According to Diamondback10 the new guy must have:
•Very good experience in C# and/or C++
•Windows dev of course
•Experience with reading/writing binary data would be helpful
•Experience with reverse engineering file formats would be also helpful
•Good spoken english required (German would be nice too)
•Communication is done via either IRC or Skype
•Development uses SVN, so knowledge about SVN and how it works is quite helpful
•Having a HTC phone with a sense 3.0/3.5 ROM is strongly advised. You don’t totally need it, but it helps a lot.
If you think you have what it takes to continue the legacy of this awesome program head on over to the thread here.

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.
