S-Planner App from Galaxy S III Ported to Galaxy S II
Have you tried out the Galaxy S III and love the exclusive bundled apps? Do you want those apps, but find yourself satisfied with last year’s Galaxy S II and don’t want to shell out your hard-earned cash just to get those apps? You don’t have to, thanks to your beloved developer community here at XDA.
In May, we shared with you the new TouchWiz Launcher from the Galaxy S III ported to the Galaxy S II, and just a few days back, we brought you news that the floating Video Player from Galaxy Note had been ported as well. Now, the S-Planner app from the SGSIII has also been ported to work on the SGSII.

The developer is working on a fix, and it will be available in a future version.
You can find more details and download the app in the forum thread.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
