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...
Power Radio – FM Player with RDS Decoding Updated
Back in February, XDA moderator -PiLoT- wrote about the first version of this complete FM player for Windows Mobile devices. Now XDA moderator 6Fg8 launched an updated version correcting some bugs reported by users.
These are some of the fixes present on new version 184.108.40.206
- bugfix: didnt load correct skin after restart
- bugfix: crash when starting scan after clean install
- bugfix: couldnt enter negative values for squelchlevel (using the new reverse squelch option)
- visual clue when logging is enabled (shows “L” in upper right corner)
- when changing channels, current station icon is copied to \CurrentStation.png (useful for WAD themes)
- squelch can now be reversed, use negative value to mute if RSSI is above the specified value
- PowerRadio.ini is saved when starting a bandscan

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.
