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...
Night Profile Switcher Gets Your Android Ready for Bed
There are numerous ways to set up your Android phone for day-to-day activities. Whether it’s setting alarms, using NFC tags in strategically placed parts of your house and car, or even some OEM skins with similar features built-in, there are ways to automate many tasks on Android. However, sometimes it can get needlessly complicated. Now, there is an easier way at least to get your device ready for bed.
XDA Senior Member superkoal released an application that helps you set up a night profile for your device. It’s a very simple application that helps you toggle what you need at night. Here are some of the features:
- Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth, Sound & Vibration
– Set your phone to flight mode
– Lock the screen
– Start alarm clock
– Revert in the morning by clicking the notification
– Show good night message with haptic feedback
– more to come!
It controls some pretty basic functions right now, but even so, it’s easier than manually making these changes yourself. In addition, the next version will feature a tablet-optimized UI, translations for French and Spanish, as well as the ability to turn off sync. If you’re looking for an easy way to turn some stuff off at bed time, you may want to give this a try. For more details, check out the original thread.

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.
