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?
Change Languages Like a Boss with Quick Locale for Android
Do you constantly find yourself changing your mobile device’s language setting? Perhaps your employment status mandates that you interact with a linguistically diverse team. Rather than clicking through hordes of menus, XDA forum member DevJackey has developed an application that allows you to change your locale (i.e. language) setting with one simple click on your Android device’s home screen!
With Quick Locale, appeasing a global audience has never been easier. With the customizable widgets, changing your device’s language is sleek and streamlined. In the words of the developer:
As the name suggests, this app is a quick way to switch the locale, or your phone’s language.
- Launch the app from the App Drawer to instantly go to a list of languages. Click to change.
- Widget Support! Create a widget on the Homescreen and preselect languages
- One click to change language on widgets.
- Able to launch full list of languages from Widget, if Full List was preselected.
This app should be compatible with most devices. If there’s any problems, leave me a response or an email. Please leave any suggestions or feature requests too.
Continue on to the application thread to get started! Also, be sure to leave the developer some feedback or feature requests while you’re at it.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

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...
