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...
Official CM10 Nightlies Now Available for the Motorola Xoom
It’s time for another CM10 for [insert device here] post. This however is not just any old device. It’s the Motorola Xoom, the Honeycomb lead device—a tablet that’s stood the test of time. It also happens to be this author’s tablet of choice, which is why I’m pretty excited. A highly optimized and tweaked build of Android 4.1 has been available for the Xoom (WiFi Wingray, 3G Everest, 4G Stingray) for a while now thanks to the fantastic work of TeamEOS. However, more options is never a bad thing, and many users have grown to love CyanogenMod.
XDA Recognized Developer Steady Hawkin broke the news of official CM10 nightlies for both the Winray & Stingray versions. All the usual nightly build rules apply, so don’t submit bug reports without a logcat to back it up. Up until the most recent nightly there were some issues with sensors, and some people are reporting that their system partition is quickly maxed out. However there are workarounds for these issues, and for the most part the builds seem to be pretty stable.
Check out the original nightly release thread for more info, change logs, and the all-important download links.

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.
