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...
Port the Lidroid Notification Toggles to Non-Samsung ROMs
If you’re a fan of the notification toggles found in XDA Senior Member lidroid‘s series of ROMs for various Samsung devices, you may be hesitant to switch to a different ROM or even a different device. After all, as we discussed earlier, notification toggles are quite useful, and having more of them is never a bad thing. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member Adi Aisiteru Reborn has created a guide showing you how to port the toggles over to various non-Samsung Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM.
The guide first instructions you to decompile SystemUI.apk, and then it walks you through the values you will need to modify. Naturally, you need to know how to decompile and recompile APK files, but there’s a guide for that. You will also need some patience and a little bit of experience, as the guide doesn’t cover all of the basics involved in the process. However, if you’ve decompiled an APK and made some modifications before, you should be fine.
In addition to the 21 lidroid toggles, Adi Aisiteru Reborn has also added additional toggles made by Recognized Themer serajr.
we are going to port 21 Lidroid toggles :
( -Lock screen/screen-off action, -Reboot action, -Shutdown action, -Airplane mode, -Bluetoth, -Brightness, -GPS, -Flashlight, -Lockscreen, -MobileData, -Orientation, -ScreenTimeOut, -Sound, -Sync, -Wi-fi, -Wi-fi Hotspot, Battery info, Stay awake, USB Connection mode, USB Debugging, Network mode )

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.
