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?
Battery Saving Mega Guide Celebrating User’s 2000th Post
Imagine for a second that you’re coming up fast on an XDA forum milestone. Be it your 50th, 100th, or 1000th post—you really want to make it count. So or how do you best make use of these milestones? Looking back at my own post history, I always had big ideas for every major milestone with a planned celebratory post. Unfortunately, distraction and obligations would always kick in, and I would never quite remember in time for these big moments.
Well luckily, not everyone is quite as easily distractible as your favorite Editor-in-Chief. Proof of this can be seen in XDA Recognized Contributor Riro Zizo‘s 2000th post made just a few days ago. Rather than simply posting random lolcats and troll images in an area I am far too scared to ever venture, Riro Zizo decided to create a battery-saving mega guide, based on previous work he released on his own website.
The guide is split into three posts, based on difficulty level. Easy tweaks that everyone can do are in the OP, while medium difficulty tweaks are in the second post, and advanced tweaks are in the third. Every tweak is explained in great detail to help you make sense of it all, regardless of your skill level. Because of this, the guide serves as a great resource you can send to all your friends complaining about “worse battery life on Android” than what they saw on their iPh*ne.
Make your way over to the battery saving mega guide to get started. And once you’ve given a few of the methods a shot, don’t be shy, and share your results 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...
