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...
Relive Your Elevator Frustrations With Crazy Lift Manager
Sometimes we all just want to take a little break from the monotony of everyday life with a quick video game or two. For many, one of the irksome daily struggles is waiting for the elevator. Having been stuck in one of these evil contraptions myself for a good half hour once, I know this all too well.
Defying all logic, XDA Forum Member newTween has taken the normally tedious task of elevator usage and turned it into a surprisingly enjoyable game. Your goal in the game is to transport people out of their offices and to the ground floor as efficiently as possible.
In the words of the developer:
Crazy Lift Manager is an action strategy game. Hours of addictive gameplay.
Every day at 5pm workers leave the office after a busy day. Your task is to bring them down as soon as possible. Be fast, as people get impacient very quickly and you can lose your job anytime.
– upgrades and traps
– hundrets hours of addictive gameplay
– global highscores
HOW TO PLAY?
Touch a floor and lift goes there. Collect bonuses and watch out for traps. Lift can’t change direction when on the move.
If you’re interested in giving this fun and free game a shot, visit the application thread to get started. Be sure to leave some feedback too, as this is the developer’s first application!

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.
