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.

Make Your Home Screen Unique with ForeLayer
Without letting it slip to the general public, Co0kieMonster slyly added another layer to the HTC Sense homescreen in the latest release of Co0kie’s Home Tab. This was requested by XDA developer m0bmentality, and its purpose has only recently been revealed.
This week, m0bmentality introduced the ForeLayer modification. This small yet entertaining addition to the list of ways in which CHT enhances your phone’s interface allows you to add overlays to your homescreen without them affecting its responsiveness. For example, designs such as windows, animals, splashes of water and smashing effects can be positioned on top of your device’s widgets, staying stationary when you swipe to a different screen.
m0bmentality’s new modification grants Co0kie’s Home Tab users more freedom when it comes to customising Manila. To pick it up, visit the project thread.

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.
