To me, applications like this one are really important for school students.

Train Your Basic Math Skills with Mathician
If you have little ones, you are likely more than familiar with the term edutainment. And even if you haven’t reached that life stage yet, you surely have fond memories of childhood exposure to TV shows like Sesame Street and the like.
Who’s to say, though, that these fun-but-educational activities have to stop after childhood? XDA Forum Member d-fader created Mathician to help sharpen your basic math skills from the comfort of your mobile device. Inspired by Brain Age on the Nintendo DS, Mathician aims at turning users into a “Math Magician.”
Mathician features levels of increasing difficulty, which all feature generally easy and basic math problems. Your goal is to be as fast and accurate as possible. Higher performance nets a higher score, as well as a stab at over 30 achievements. And if you’re feeling competitive, you can challenge others to a 1v1 match.
If you want to boost your kids’ basic math skills or just speed up your own, head over to the application thread and give Mathician a try.

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.
