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.

Forums Added for the Note 4, Note Edge, Xperia Z3, Smartwatch 3, and More!
As we mentioned in our IFA 2014 roundup, many new and exciting devices were just released earlier today. We have devices from Samsung, Sony, and Asus. And as always, we’ve given these new devices a place here on our forums to help you decide which is the right device for you and what to do with it once you get it.
First up, we have the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 4. We all knew it was coming, and now it’s finally here. Featuring a 2.7 GHz Quad-Core processor or 1.9 GHz Octa-Core processor depending on location, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, and 2560×1440 display, the Note 4 is every bit the powerhouse we expected. In addition to the Note 4, Samsung also released the 5.6″ Galaxy Note Edge with a very unique, curved screen that can serve as a notification ticker once it gains developer support. Lastly from Samsung, we also created a new forum for the Samsung Gear VR.
In addition to Samsung’s unveilings, we had quite a showing from Sony, including the new flagship Sony Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. And if you’re a fan of Android Wear-based smartwatches, you should also keep your eye out for the Sony Smartwatch 3. Finally, Asus also made a splash with the new ASUS ZenWatch.
So which of these devices are you looking at? Let us know in the comments below. Don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums to get in on the discussions, and as always, let’s hope for a fast and painless journey towards root and third party development for all of these new devices!

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.
