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?
Android 4.4.2 XXUFNAD Test Build Leaked for the International Samsung Galaxy S 4 I9505!
We first saw a Samsung-created Android 4.4.2 build for the international Samsung Galaxy S 4 GT-I9505 about a month ago with the leaked XXUFNA1Firmware. While the company hasn’t said much about an official KitKat rollout schedule, a leaked memo pointed to the end of January as a possible release date for the S 4 and Note 3. January has now come and gone. And while the Note 3 already received its official 4.4.2 update, the S 4 is still without.
Luckily, another leaked Android 4.4.2 firmware has emerged for the trusty I9505. The new XXUFNAD firmware was originally shared by the kind folks over at Sammobile and posted to the forums by XDA Senior Member kelvyn1995. Just like the previously leaked build, this new leak also lacks the new artistic direction that we saw in some leaked screenshots a while back. However, it does incorporate some of the minor UI tweaks present in the previous build, as well as a few other minor changes.
You can get in on the leak by heading over to the leaked firmware thread. And once you’ve updated your device, don’t forget to leave your feedback in the thread. Are you a fan of these continual leaks or are you a happy AOSP-based ROM user who couldn’t care less about first-party updates? Let us know in the comments below.

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 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...
