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...
ThemeX Extracts Icons, Wallpapers, and Docks from Launcher Themes
Have you ever downloaded a launcher theme just for one of the included wallpapers? Don’t feel bad; we all have. Now thanks to ThemeX by XDA Forum Member redphx, we can choose the items we like— such as icons, wallpapers and docks—to our SD cards without having to manually poke around the theme’s .apk file.
The tool works with GO Launcher, ADW Launcher, and EX themes. To get started, you simply install the theme you wish to extract items from, select which items you wish to extract, and ThemeX does the rest. After you have taken what you want, you can uninstall the theme to free up storage space on your device.
Future revisions of ThemeX are aimed at supporting LP Launcher and GO Locker themes. In the words of the developer:
You don’t have to install GO Launcher EX or ADW Launcher EX to use this app.
How to use:
1. Install GO Launcher/ADW Launcher Theme that you want to extract items from.
2. Open ThemeX
3. Select theme
4. Select items you want to extract, then press save.

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.
