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...
Make Your Toshiba Folio 100 Work the Way It Was Meant
If there is anything better than custom roms on anything, is a patch to fix annoying bugs and to improve performance. This is exactly what this patch for the Toshiba Folio 100 does, courtesy of XDA member Dexter_nlb. While we know that this device is not featured in our site yet, we figured that posting this fix would be beneficial for the many Folio owners out there.
This fix encompasses a new stock build with working google apps, and stability issues fixed such as Wifi loading, SD card mounting errors, resolution issues on a few apps, and more. So, if you are an owner, give this a go and make sure that you follow the instructions in the guide or else you may end up bricking the device.
v0.1 (patch updates)
– Wifi load/unload – fixed
– USB Mass storage to pc – fixed
– USB Stick mount on folio – fixed
– 160DPI fix for GoogleMaps & Market – fixed
– Internal flash / external sdcard swapped , now 16GB storage is back as external storage. Sdcard is found using filemanager.
– Shutdown is now working, (after wifi fix + usbmass storage fix)
You can find more information in the patch 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.
