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?
Handy Theft Protection Software
XDA-Developers user popol256 has created an application that goes a long way to prevent the theft of personal information if your phone gets stolen. This app is easy to use ad isn’t a very large file.
Most of this kind of utility aren’t free or they rather large after installation, this one doesn’t even need .NETCF, its written in open C++ source all for free.
Its features include
- Remote wiping of the device (Call history, emails, text messages, contacts and more)
- Get the call history and SIM contacts sent to you
- make the stolen phone call you
- All other tracking software features…
all you have to do is download the software (NO .cab just 2 files to insert), run it once to set-up configuration then forget about it.
In the case the phone is stolen, the software will send you a SMS with the thief’s phone number, it’s GPS position, the CellID in case the GPS pos is not available.
You’ll then be able to act on your phone remotely by sending it some SMS.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

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...
