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...
XDA FaceBook App for WM Update
Just a few days ago, XDA member joe_coolish presented a major update to the Face Book application for Windows Mobile devices. Updated version Beta 3.5.1 allows you to download and use cached images, notifications now working ok, now having the chance to skin the app, GUI fixes, and more speed just to mention some features.
The developer’s application is working on WVGA resolution devices using WM6.5 and up.

IMAGES! Yes, images are now downloaded and cached!
SKINNING! Thanks mrhayami for your beautiful skin! (which once he gives the OK, it will be made available for download)
Rollup of bug fixes
I’ve added a little pop-up window that tells you when you have a notification and how many you have
Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out how to clear the notifications Other than going onto facebook and clearing them that way!
Also, in the rush to get the app out the door, I didn’t implement the “Touch to see what the update was”. Next beta it will be available\
I want to know if the graphics and pictures slow down the device. I have done some testing on my device and so far I haven’t had any problems. Also, my device was able to do transparency. IDK of all devices can! Let me know if there are devices that can’t handle transparency!!
I also changed the road map a little. Let me know if that works for everyone!
Once I get permission, I’ll post mrhayami’s skin. Stay tuned!
Hope everyone likes the new updates!

Posting data is very new, and because of this, there probably will be some bugs. This is a .0 release, so expect things to be ruff!
I also wanted to make a road map of releases leading up to the final release of Version 1.0:

XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. 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.
