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?
Connect To Your Favorite Networks With Ease With Quick Wifi Switcher for Android
Just how many times have you been happily connected to a wireless network just to find out that your Android device decided that there was something else around the area and connected to it without your approval? Maybe your place of employment or school has multiple access points that you have configured in your device, and because of this, your device may try to connect to the first one it sees even if it is not your first choice. If you are in a similar situation, then you are probably aware of the tediousness of going into Settings, then Wireless Settings, waiting for the networks list to populate, and so on. Luckily, XDA member slow23 decided to do something about this inconvenience and released Quick Wifi Switcher. This little app will allow you to switch seamlessly and effortlessly through your favorite and preconfigured access points. No more navigating through menus to show your device that you need to connect through that protected network as opposed to that pestering hp-setup ad-hoc.
The app is simple enough but the dev would still like to hear some feedback and thoughts regarding it. Please share your thoughts when you get a chance.

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...
