While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
All-in-One Guide for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus
Pretty much anyone who spends enough time on XDA will eventually run into one of XDA Recognized Contributor qbking77’s videos. A member of the Android Creative Syndicate, qbking77 has become sort of an unofficial the YouTube guru for XDA, posting videos on a variety of topics for a number of devices. Subjects vary from ROM reviews, guides on flashing various ROMs, root methods, and the list goes on. Qbking77, who has over 600 videos to date, now brings Sprint Galaxy Nexus owners some video love.
With the recent release of the Galaxy Nexus on the “Now Network,” Sprint users on XDA have been plummeted into an already spirited development culture surrounding the newest Nexus. With that, users have had to create their own niche in the forums with their own ROMs and tweaks. And with so many variants, it can be tough to find the information you’re looking for.
This is what qbking77 aims to fix with his all-in-one guide for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus. Instead of posting text tutorials, qbking77 has put together 10 didactic videos for the newest Nexus owners. The videos cover all the basics, such as installing the Android SDK and device drivers on your computer. From there, each video takes you through the next step in the process, including unlocking the bootloader, rooting the phone, how to unroot the phone, and a number of other fun topics.
For all the videos, hit up the original thread and start really playing with your Nexus.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
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.
