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...
Thwart Those Nexus 7 (2013) Multi-Touch Issues
The Nexus 7 (2013) has been out since the late July, and many have enjoyed the device, which features numerous improvements over last year’s model. That said, many users have reported multi-touch issues right out of the box, and Google tried to address the issue back in August with the JSS15Q update. Sadly, this update didn’t fix the issue for all users, and it even brought on new touch issues for some who previously had none.
XDA Recognized Contributor sfhub came up with steps to fix the multi-touch issues for a purported 75% of the Nexus 7 (2013) users.
Don’t you hate it when you have a workable system, then an update comes along which fixes something, let’s say GPS, but then your touchscreen goes down the tubes?
Never fear, I’ve put together packages to handle 3 different variances of the touchscreen.
I was able to make the touchscreen usable again on 3 of 4 test units.
To learn more about the process and lock in the working “fix” so that no future update impacts your screen responsiveness in the future, check out the original 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.
