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...
Voice and Video GTalk Working for 2.3.3 Roms!
You all saw the news that came out the other day regarding Google’s latest Gingerbread installment (2.3.4) and that it came bearing the gift of video chat on the infamous GTalk application. The app was extracted a few days ago and made available to the masses but with several bugs, including causing crashes and general instability for other Google apps like the Market. Thanks to the efforts of XDA member XsMagical, we now have a flashable version of this app that is stable enough to use in other devices. Keep in mind this is for 2.3.3, this will at least give the opportunity those people on devices without the 2.3.4 port to test this out and enjoy the ability to do video chatting with everyone (at least those who have G-mail accounts).
The app is far easier to install that it was in the previous incarnation that made it to our Portal. This comes in a flashable zip file, so to install, simply go into recovery and flash the zip. No ADB required. Please share your results if this worked on your device. The thread is currently located in the EVO 4G area, but may work for others as well.
I had to mod a gapps zip to get this working with out breaking market and other google apps.

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.
