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...
Record Your Phone Calls with Incall Recorder
Call recorders are often sought out for a myriad of reasons. However, the phone call recording apps out there are always a hit and miss for certain users, with some reporting desired functionality while others only get a buggy memory placeholder. If you find yourself needing to record a call for whatever reason, maybe give Incall Recorder a go.
Developed by XDA Senior Member zakiancel, Incall Recorder’s primary function is to, as inferred from its name, record calls on your Android smartphone as well as doubling up as a voice recorder. The app presents itself with an intuitive user interface that’s logical and straightforward. On it’s initial start up, Incall Recorder introduces the main features and aspects of the app so to get you familiar with functions and interface. There are a couple of ways to record calls: through a hovering recording button that appears when a call is active, automatically recording all calls, and recording by tapping the notification in the drop-down notification area. Zakiancel claims an hour of recording is encoded to just a 7 MB MP3 file. Playing, searching, renaming, sharing, and deleting recordings is also extremely simple, as Incall Recorder has its handy own record manager.
Again, if you have had a lackluster experience with other call recorders out in the market, the 1.6 MB Incall Recorder is definitely worth a try. If Incall Recorder sounds like an app you would like to try out, check out the original thread for more details. Just be sure to keep in mind that in certain areas, call recording may be illegal. Furthermore, even where it is allowed, you should always inform the other party that they are being recorded out of common courtesy.

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.
