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...
Who Wants to be a Millionaire Clone for Android
As always, we’ve brought you some great developments here at the portal lately. From WP7 & Android triple boot for the legendary HD2 to the untethered webOS port for the Nexus 7, we’ve seen plenty of hacks and ROMs to satisfy our geeky sides. Now, it’s time to take a break and have some fun with a simple game. Not too long ago, we went snowball fighting on our Android devices, but today, how about something a bit more challenging for our brains? You’ve been cordially invited to play ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’ by XDA Forum Member bogmix.
While you will not exactly get to be on TV or win any real money, this free game for Android will give you a great time if you are a fan of the popular game show, or just like general knowledge quiz games. The game features over 5,000 questions (sorry, it’s still 4,001 short from being truly perfect), along with all the usual concepts from the show such as “Increase the chances,” “Help of the crowd,” and “Help of the Game God.” There is also a global leader-board, where you can show off your achievements and see those of other players.
The game is in active development, and the developer is planning on adding tablet optimization and the ability to add your own questions, as well as making it online capable. You can learn more and get the Play Store link in the forum thread.

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.
