This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

AndroPlatina Utilities Gets Major Update, New GUI and Kernel Flashing
A little over a month ago, we brought you news of a budding tool kit known as AndroPlatina. The first release didn’t have a lot of features. However, it certainly was a great idea that, once matured, had the potential to become a very useful toolkit. Now, with only a few planned features left to implement, AndroPlatina’s latest update makes it just as awesome as was promised.
Developed by XDA Recognized Contributor varun.chitre15, the first release had all of three or four features. With the latest update to version 2.0, not only has AndroPlatina gotten a generous UI face lift, but has now stabilized enough features to be considered a very useful tool kit. Some of the features that have been implemented since the original version include:
Complete Fastboot Flasher
Any Device Unrooter
Complete Recovery Tools (still in progress but mostly working)
Boot Animation Changer
There is still a lot of work to be done, and many more features to be implemented. A couple of particularly useful features that are still yet to be implemented are a full ROM kitchen, the ability to flash a ROM as an executable on a PC, and a complete theming kitchen. For more info, check out the original thread.

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?
