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...
Motorola Droid X2 Forums Added
Our stance on adding forums to this site has slightly changed. However, there are certain new and upcoming phones that we cannot turn our backs to. One such device is the Motorola Droid X2, which is the successor of the hugely popular Motorola Droid X, which happened to be Verizon’s flagship for a while before more powerful phones started coming out from different manufacturers like Samsung and HTC. It comes with several improvements over its older brother such as a higher resolution display, bumping the bar up for qHD display (boasting at 960 x 540 pixels) and a dual core 1 GHz Tegra processor just like the Motorola Atrix. Some of the features that were carried over were the 8 MP camera, dual LED flash, and Android 2.2 (Froyo), which to be honest is kind of disappointing. Seeing how other phones are no longer shipping with Froyo, Motorola will likely release a Gingerbread update sometime soon (we hope).
If you have one already, or are thinking about getting one, please share your thoughts and findings with other users in the newly created forum.

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.
