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...
Soft Screen Tuner Allows for Permanent RGB, Sharpness and Contract Tweaks
Too often you’ll see a review that says that a screen looks a little washed or that the whites look a little blue or even that the blacks look a little green. Following that thought, there aren’t many ways of fixing such a problem when it does occur.
XDA Member wql seeks to end that problem with an app called Soft Screen Tuner. The application requires root and has been tested and is confirmed working on the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note. It may work on other devices as well, so it can’t hurt to try if you don’t happen to own those particular devices.
The app allows users to change the RGB tones on the device, as well as sharpness, contrast, color temperature and saturation across the movie, dynamic and standard color settings. What makes this application unique is that it is not a running service. Once you make these changes, they take effect immediately and, even if you uninstall the application, the settings will remain.
If this is something you think you’d like to check out, you can head on over to the app’s thread where you can find the download link, screenshots and discussion. Of course, make a backup before attempting, just in case something goes askew.

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.
