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...
QIK Finally Working on CM7 for the EVO (Maybe Others)
So, if you are one of the lucky ones who have an EVO rocking CM7 (or any Gingerbread build for that matter), you are probably missing Qik, the video chat application. It has taken the CM team quite a while but to no avail. Thanks to the newest drop of the official Gingerbread rom for the EVO, which comes with Qik included, XDA member mazdarider23 was able to finally install it and get it working with no issues on his EVO. The installation of the app is not as straight forward as simply opening an apk, so make sure that you are rooted and that you have Root Explorer or Astro File Manager in order to place this in your device. It works well according to the dev, so please take it out for a spin and leave some feedback if it worked for you.
Alright so up to now, I’ve had hell trying to get QIK working on CM7 or for any GB rom for that matter. Well look no more…..
Just install it via Root Explorer or Astro File Manager for those that don’t know what to do with it!
Oh and if you want to test it out and don’t have anyone to call via QIK….call me.
You can find more information in the application thread.

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.
