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.

myPlayer – Now Available for Android
You may remember an article written not too long ago about an app by the name of myPlayer for Windows Mobile, which allowed users to access BBC iPlayer without using web browsers (see original article here). XDA member FryWalker brings us the same app, but this time for Android devices. Unlike its WM counterpart, this app is designed to work only with BBC (no Hulu and others). The app is still in Beta but the dev has promised that expanded functionality will be added in the upcoming releases..
- Extensive BBC iPlayer integration
- Fully featured programme search
- Browse by iPlayer category
- Automatic stream quality (3G or wifi)
- Android OS version 1.5 (cupcake) or higher
- An internet connection that is UK based
You can follow development and find more information in the application thread.

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.
