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...
Tencent Launcher Translated to English, Brings Simplified, Quick Experience
There is a vast selection of launchers out there. It doesn’t matter what you’re looking for, there is a launcher out there for you. Even so, more launchers are released all the time to help fill the gaps the others may leave behind. Recently, a launcher called Tencent Launcher was translated to English for people to use.
XDA Recognized Contributor melvinchng went through the trouble of translating the Chinese version to English for users. Otherwise, it remains exactly the same as the free Google Play Store version. The features include:
Quick launcher widget (power widget)
Built in clock widget
Folder in Home screen
Unlimited apps in a Folder
Transition animation in app drawer
Transition animation in home screen
Flip Clock <<< SMOOTH
Installation should be easy. Simply install the APK as normal. If you’re looking for a nice, simple, and quick browser, this may be an option for you. Unfortunately, there are no themes available, and the weather widget may be permanently stuck displaying Beijing’s weather until a fix can be found. Otherwise, users have reported that it works pretty well.
For additional details, check out the application thread.

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.
