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.

XDA is Back; SOPA/PIPA Still a Threat
We want to thank all of you for signing our pledge today. We hit 50,000 signatures much faster than expected (actually, we had over 80,000 before eliminating duplicate IPs). We debated staying dark longer, but are keeping our commitment to XDA members to return online at the 50,000 mark.
We know that sites like Wikipedia will continue to raise awareness among the general public. We hope more savvy users–like those on XDA–will continue to be the loudest and most vocal opponents of SOPA and PIPA. We all have the most to lose. Whether you signed our pledge or not, please do contact your local Senator or Representative, or, if you’re not in the US, inform any friends or family you have in the States that might not know about the damaging repercussions of SOPA and PIPA.
XDA continues to look for ways to protest this legislation. If you have any ideas, please PM Svetius.

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.
