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.

Ubuntu Backtrack 5 on Xperia X10
Amazing developments are something we’re not new to here on XDA, with our amazing community of outstanding developers and friends. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t surprises around every corner.

A log file has also been provided for you to help, so if you own an X10 and would like to lend a helping hand to a fine developer, head on over to the original thread!
Thanks for the tip, GlossGhost!

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.
