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...
NOTEify Lets You Set and View Rich Contact Notes while in Calls
In most professional industries, networking is an unavoidable aspect of everyday life. Whether you’re trying to make a sale or simply want to make your coworkers feel more comfortable, properly executed networking generally tends to make things go a bit smoother. For the uninitiated, one of the most important aspects of networking is remembering certain key details that are shared with you. But with many contacts, this can quickly grow to become overwhelmingly difficult.
There are quite a few techniques and tools available to help you better remember important details about your work contacts. For example, you could manually keep a journal of key information or store these facts on their business cards in your Rolodex—that is if anyone even remembers what a Rolodex is. But of course, manually writing things down is a bit too last century for most of us here on XDA. And let’s face it, reading details from the back of a business card isn’t exactly the easiest way of getting information. Plus, there are countless other things that we’d like to keep track of in addition to contact details.
Luckily, XDA Forum Member mdmdmd27 created a handy application called NOTEify that lets you keep track of important information both in and out of calls. For example, one of the app’s main features allows you to create and view per-contact notes when in a call such as in the screenshot to the right. You can also view a contact’s full details while in a conversation. Moreover, if you are calling a new number, you can enter the full details and create notes while in the call itself. Once out of the call and in the app itself, you can view and modify existing notes or create new entries on a per-contact basis. And in the app, all of the entries are displayed in a sorted list to keep things organized.
If you’ve ever wanted a better way to take notes and keep track of contact details, head over to the application thread to get started.

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.
