This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

ClockSync – Synchronise Device Time via NTP
Does your Android device suffer clock lag or lead? Does your network operator not support time synchronisation via Network Identity and Time Zone? If so, then why not try out XDA forum member CrazyCoder‘s ClockSync app?
ClockSync synchronises your Android device time with the Atomic time using the Network Time Protocol (which is designed to synchronise computer clocks over a network) over your data or Wi-Fi connection.
The app can synchronise your device time automatically or manually.
Originally posted by CrazyCoder:
- Displays atomic reference time, system time, clock offset and current date or last synchronisation time
- Gets atomic time from the user specified NTP server
- Update offset by tapping on the Atomic time or Local offset values on the screen
- Tapping on the system time will synchronise the device clock with the Atomic clock
- Update/synchronise actions are also available from the application menu
- Automatic synchronisation on user specified interval (battery efficient!)
- Options to synchronise only via Wi-Fi or when device is already awake
- Optional haptic feedback when tapping on the active screen elements
- am/pm and 24-hour time display based on the system setting
- Compatible with Android 1.5 and higher version including FroYo(2.2)
ClockSync is available for free in the Market, or for information on where to download the apk directly, visit the application thread.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
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?
