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.

VR Tunnel Live Wallpaper
If you remember the VR holographic demo app that was floating around for winmo devices back in the day when the HTC Diamond was brand new, then you’ll like this.

The LWP is currently in testing and as such has not been released to the Market, but is posted in the application thread where chopsui is looking for testers. Confirmed to be working on the Google Nexus One, chopsui needs testers for other devices such as a Milestone, Droid, or Galaxy S.

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.
