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.

Show Off Your Cyanogen Love with This Boot Animation Collection
There was a time several years ago, when CyanogenMod was the only large-scale, source-built custom ROM that was officially available for large number of devices. Nowadays, there are quite a few high quality offerings to choose from, each with their particular forte or claim to fame. But even with the abundant diversity of choices available, many users still choose CyanogenMod as their default ROM.
XDA Forum Member SlurmsMcKenzie recently created a fantastic set of boot animations to pay tribute to CyanogenMod and Cyanogen Inc using the latter’s latest corporate logo. There are nine boot animations available in total, and most are available in both HDPI and XHDPI flavors. They all feature Cyanogen Inc’s logo in some shape or form, some include Cyanogen text, and some offer pleasing wallpaper images behind the main animation.
If you’re a diehard Cyanogen fan, you can get your boot animation fix by visiting the original thread.

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.
