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.

What about a newer weather look on your Android home screen? XDA member scott951 presents the first public beta of Miui Weather, a beautiful graphic UI that will give you weather information with a touch of 3D style with nice animations and the option to share your weather status with other contacts. The developer recommends to search for your specific .apk by State to ensure proper location. Updates and can be found by alphabetical order for the US.

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.
