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?
BBQLog Brings CM Nightly Changes Straight to You
Change logs are definitely one of the most important parts of any release. Be it an app, ROM, kernel, mod, tweak, script, you name it; releasing a change log with each new release allows users to see what you’ve changed, fixed, added, and subtracted from prior versions. Often, it’s the very first developer-to-user interaction, and a well thought out change log can ease the minds of the cautious and give users compelling reason to upgrade. Fans of CyanogenMod nightlies probably know the value of the change logs even more so than most other ORDers, as they receive substantial updates rather frequently.
Enter BBQlog. Released by XDA Senior Member peterperfect along with the team behind the previously covered OpenDESIGN project, BBQlog is a third-party website that gives you the change log for CyanogenMod Nightlies. While many users are asking what is the big deal, as that information is typically already made readily available, the catch is where they pull the updates from. Instead of using CyanogenMod Gerrit, which is the more popular way to show the change log, BBQlog pulls its change log stats straight from the GIT. This means it shows every single little change, unedited. It’s much like buying the “Not Rated” version of a movie. You get the movie, plus all the stuff they didn’t show you in theaters. Additionally, the BBQlog team is currently working on an Android app that’ll push all this information directly to your Android phone.
While it isn’t an official CyanogenMod project, it’s still quite useful nonetheless for users and developers alike. For the link to the website, the full list of credits, and more, visit the original thread.

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...
