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...
New RPG Alpha Looking for Some Testers
It’s always fun to watch the development of something from the ground up. Installing it when it’s not much more than a mere shell of an application or ROM, and then flashing the final product to see how far it has come since its earliest testing. One thing that users usually don’t get this experience with is video games, as testing doesn’t really happen until everything is in place. However, XDA community members now have a rare opportunity to help test a RPG game before completion.
XDA Senior Member Sh4itan is building a game currently called Project Eldina. The game itself is far from done, as the campaign still needs to be implemented. However, anyone who wants to test it can still try out a number of features, including:
create a hero
browse through some text
view your hero statistics
go out for random quests
navigate on totally random created 2D maps
English/German language support
There’s still a lot of stuff to be added to the game, but it’s still cool that testers are able to have access to the game this early on in the development. Additionally, Sh4itan is taking ideas on how to make the game better and other features to include. A group of people creating a paper and pencil game; why do the words Dungeon Master ring out so clearly?

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.
