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...
Need Something Done? The Android Everything Tool Can Probably Do It
If you need something done with your Android device and you’re not sure which program is needed to do it, it can probably be done with the Android Everything Tool by XDA Senior Member ricky310711.
Alright alright, so it obviously can’t do everything, but it sure seems like it can. A free tool for PCs running Windows, Android Everything Tool brings together a whole range of functions that are normally fragmented between multiple apps, tools, and software. This includes performing custom recovery functions such as backing up and restoring your device, and wiping the data, cache, system and dalvik cache. Android Everything Tool can also change the LCD pixel density of your device and fix that pesky low battery error.
The tool also comes with numerous guides that help you unlock your bootloader, install a recovery theme, restore your device to its default state, and more. Users of the HTC Sensation XL are treated to a longer list of functions such as S-Off, force update, and flashing a custom radio, among others.
Android Everything Tool, originally compatible with only the Sensation XL, will now work with any Android device that uses ADB and fastboot. Now with six versions under the belt, ricky310711 may be coming out with a seventh version incorporating bug fixes and suggestions from the community. So if you would like to give this a go, be sure to check out the original thread for more information and download.

XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. 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.
