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 Your Android LCD Density With This App
Having the ability to change the density (which is more like your resolution) to something different is a feature that’s hard to get with Android, but not anymore. This simple application was released just this weekend and allows you to change the pixel density of your device to something that you might like more. Created by XDA member ex87, this application is still not 100% complete, but so far its safe and looks good from the provided video.
Here is a little information that the dev has provided for us:

Idea is simple – change LCD density without modifying build.prop and almost on the fly.
Application will change LCD density in system, changes will not survive reboot (so if you have wrong settings, pull out battery or restart device and you are back to old settings). For now best way to change density is to reload Android software stack (it will seems like crash but it’s intended to be this way).
If your density is not enough for you, adjust it over at the 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...
