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...
Sharing XDA Marketplace Experiences
When you are tired of your actual device and want to buy a newer one, you have many options, but for our community, we have a special place called the XDA Marketplace where you can buy, trade, or sell your device with other members.
Please note that XDA does not take any responsibility for the Marketplace. It is simply another tool for members to use, wisely. Read and obey Marketplace rules for an easy, pleasant transaction.
A feedback indicator is shown for every member while on the marketplace, so you can read about previous experiences members had with specific members, giving you more confidence when dealing. However, the single most important tool you will need here is common sense. Here are some recommendations for you:
- Trade at your own Risk.
- No Business links allowed.
- If you trade by PM how do you know the person you are buying from isn’t selling the same item to 10 people? So keep all deals in the open.
- Don’t sell anything but phones / accessories and ensure they are not stolen.
- Use PayPal® whenever possible. You are responsible for your own actions.
- By posting on the MP you agree that you have read, understand and will abide by these rules.
I personally have completed many transactions and never had any problems. For example, I went looking for a HTC Sensation. At the time, there were dozens on the marketplace, so I took my time selecting deals that fit what I was looking for. Then I found one for sale by XDA member dutchschultz. I checked his feedback for previous transactions and contacted him. I followed the rules, and when it was over, we had a great transaction where both were 100% satisfied. Once again, just use common sense and read every detail on every relevant thread until you get exactly what you need.
Again, keep in mind that XDA-Developers.com, its moderators, administrators, owners and legal advisors do not warrant, guarantee or endorse any item offered for sale or trade on this forum.
Want to share your tips on how you make your transactions in the comments? Inexperienced members may appreciate it greatly.
Thanks for reading.

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.
