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.

Motorola Droid RAZR ICS Version 6.14.75 Update Leaked
Thanks to a post by XDA Forums Member jm700wx, it has come to our attention that the fabled ICS update for the CDMA version of the Motorola Droid RAZR has been leaked and is available for users to install. In addition to all your favorite ICS apps, the ROM also contains several updates and bugfixes, as well as the previously unreleased upcoming version of Motoblur—Motorola’s infamous Android UI replacement with a focus on messaging and social networking.
If you’d like to give it a try, XDA Senior Member yalkowni has put together a quick guide to install the update and keep root with links to all necessary files. The process for installing the leak is fraught with peril and will wipe your entire device, so before trying ANYTHING be sure to completely back up your RAZR. He mentions that you must install this update from stock .173 so you should be familiar with RSD Lite before attempting to do anything. If you’d like to get the update running on your own handset, you can find his guide in the ROM thread.

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.
