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?
Custom Battery Meters for Epic – Taking Requests
XDA moderator theimpaler747 just let us into a project that he is currently working on. As it turns out, he decided to make custom battery meters for the Odex DK28 roms for the Samsung Epic 4G. So far, the project only has 3 designs to choose from. However, the dev mentioned that he is taking requests to make new meters. So, do you have an idea for a different meter? Maybe you would like to see one that you saw in a different device included in this list. Whatever your reason may be, this will give you a chance to make your device more “you”.
Please leave some feedback and requests for the dev, so that this collection can grow bigger.
Ok, here is going to be my compilation of custom battery mode for any ODEX DK28 rom. I take the images output from the UOT kitchen, and then add them to the framework-res.apk in 7zip with 12 secret spices. I’m going to be increasing the size of this directory most likely every day, and may even collaborate on an app for these with fellow XDA user appelflap.
Thanks to the UOT image creator for the images!

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...
