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?
Bug Found in Angry Birds for Android – Lets you Unlock all Worlds
Do you know Angry Birds? If not, you must’ve been living under a stone. It’s a game that has been available for iOS for a long time, and is now available for Android too. Its popularity is huge, thanks to the nice graphics and smooth animations, and of course the nice game play. Some people may find it too difficult in the end though – resulting in new worlds that are being left locked because not all the previous levels are finished. Now for those people, there is a way to unlock all worlds and get access to all levels.
Found this out quite by accident.
- Load up Angry Birds and go to the world select screen.
- Centre a locked world on the screen.
- Push back button all the way out of Angry Birds.
- Load Angry Birds back up and when the “Play” button appears tap the s**t out of that m********r.
- Great success! You should be inside the locked worlds stage select screen.
- To keep it unlocked just pass the first world.
Many would argue whether it’s really fair to do this, but it can be quite useful when you flash or reset your phone, for level data can’t be backed up (Update: Titanium does that job too!)
Yet we’re wondering whether it’s actually a bug, or just the developers’ intend. No matter what, it can be pretty useful!

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...
