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.

Unofficial CM10.1 for the Samsung Galaxy Ace and Mini
As the official and unofficial builds of CM10.1 continue to roll out, yet another two lower specced devices, which some may have dismissed as not being capable of receiving such an update, are now running unofficial builds. Never let it be said that such devices aren’t well supported here at XDA. The Samsung Galaxy Mini and Samsung Galaxy Ace can both now be updated to the latest version of CyanogenMod thanks to XDA Senior Members AntiBillOS and Wayland_ACE, respectively. Both ROMS are still in their early stages, so there will be bugs. However, there don’t seem to be too many deal-breakers.
The version for the Galaxy Mini currently suffers from a some graphical and tethering issues involving both USB and WiFi tethering. Everything else is listed as functional, but be sure to read through the thread first to avoid any possible surprises. The version for the Galaxy Ace is struggling with video playback, and multi-user support is also disabled. Again, be sure to check the relevant thread thoroughly before flashing.

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.
