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.

Manila: Quicklinks & Extended Appointments
Co0kieMonster has made an excellent mod for Sense 2.5. It increases the number of programs in the home tab and the number of appointments. When sliding down, the list of appointments will expand to 5. Sliding up will show a 16/20 grid. There are 3 panels through which you can slide. Sliding up again will make the home tab more empty, so you can better see the wallpaper.
This mod only works for WVGA devices with Sense 2.5.
This is yet another 16/20 QuickLinks mod among many on XDA. However it has a few extras: extended appointments view, clear view, grid view in add program, multiline text labels. It can be configured for 16 or 20 quick links via registry. The default after install is 16.

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.
