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?
Cyclonezephyrxz7 created a great application: a very useful and free alternative to those expensive contact backup applications. It will backup and export your contacts and SMS messages.
This program includes:
- A super-simple, lightweight GUI
- The Ability to backup Contacts and SMS
- Three modes of exporting: TXT and CSV and VCF
- A comand-line based version of the GUI program
- First, run the app and you will see 3 areas : What you want to output, the output format, and the folder to write to.
- Select what you want to ouput
- Make sure to ONLY PUT THE FOLDER in the folder text box, or you will get errors or weird results…
- Once set up, click export, and the application will do its thing!
- If you want to use the command-line feature, then just run the same EXE as for the GUI with parameters afterwards (see documentation)

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...
