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...
RogueTools v1 for Vogue Android
A lot of us are closely watching the Android development on the HTC Vogue, where the devs are making huge leaps in porting tools and the most cutting edge versions of Android. In the interest of making everything a bit easier and faster, xda member myn has come up with a set of two tools that allows Vogue, Kaiser, and Polaris owners to do two things: change the screen density on the fly, and overclock the processor. The apps have been thoroughly tested by many devs and beta testers and they seem to work better than expected since these changes seem to have very little impact on battery life.
I now present you with RogueTools v1.0.
- This application is designed for the Vogue, Kaiser and Polaris devices. It allows you to dynamically overclock your device as well as change the screen density.
- This application requires write access to your /system so this will only work on EXT2 and NAND installations.
- Overclocking Notes:
- Overclocking results will vary. Based upon the beta test results everyone was able to Overclock to 500mhz and have very stable results. Above this results really were mixed. Give it a try, I’d love to hear your results.
You can follow the development of these tools in the original thread

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.
