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...
Shatter – A New 3D Puzzle for Android
Are you an avid puzzle solver? Do you like to play with things like Rubik’s Cubes and such? If your mind is able to solve problems in a three dimensional form, then you will love this app. XDA member appforce.org has created a new concept in 3D puzzles and called it Shatter for Android devices. The objective as with any puzzle is to put the pieces in the right configuration to form an image. However, the twist is that the picture is placed as an exploded view of pixels in a 3D environment that you can manipulate. The puzzle is rotated until you can successfully match it to the picture shown to you. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, you only have 20 seconds to figure out the puzzle.
Shatter is a unique puzzle to test your 3D orientation skills. Try to figure out the correct rotation of the shattered image in 20 seconds! If you fail to solve in 20 sec, your score is reset. You can enable lighting and box outlines on faster hardware.
You can find more information in the app 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.
