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...
Sleep Well Thanks to XQuietHours
The Quiet Hours feature available on certain OEM firmwares and custom ROMs is extremely useful for those who have trouble sleeping. If you have friends spread all over the world, they may (and often do) try to contact you in the middle of the night. Quiet Hours prevents that, and makes your sleep time more efficient. This feature stops your device from playing any sound at preselected hours, primarily for use at night.
While most ROMs available on XDA have Quiet Hours functionality built-in, Paranoid Android and possibly other ROMs still don’t have this handy feature available. XDA Forum Member kimifan316 decided to give Paranoid Android’s users the possibility to use Quiet Hours and has ported CyanogenMod’s Quiet Hours functionality to other ROMs via an Xposed Framework module.
Using this module is very simple. All you need to do is make sure that Xposed Framework is up and running on your device, install the module, reboot your device, and set which hours should be muted. The module also allows you to device which days Quiet Hours should be active.
Does your current ROM lack Quiet Hours functionality? Add it right away! Make your way to the XQuietHours Xposed Framework module thread to learn more.

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.
