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?
HD2/Leo 3D Driver Patch v2.0 – Configurable
Our friend Chainfire just updated his great patch CAB to version 2.0.This patch fixes some of the issues related to OpenGL games and apps not working as it should.

I must be crazy for doing this, as all my hacks and patches have only lead HTC to rip me off on the one app I actually sell, but here it is, 3D driver patch for the Leo. Seems HTC royally screwed up in the 3D driver area again.
This patch focusses mainly on a modified OpenGL ES CM, but a CL wrapper is also included (adaptation of NuShrike’s CL wrapper) and so is the TG-01 D3D driver. The latter is faster than the D3D driver that comes with the Leo, but it’s still not very fast.
For many Leo users several OpenGL games and apps do not work properly, are very slow, or stutter. This patch aims to fix these issues somewhat. A number of people have helped me test various apps and games with various revisions of this patch, but I’m sure there’ll be some issues with it or in combination with app X and games Y and Z, etc etc.
Usage – READ ME
This patch is a two-parter. It used to be a single package but I decided to split them up. You should install them both on the HD2. On the TG-01 and S200 I would only install the HD2-3D (first) package.
This has only been tested by myself on the HD2/Leo. Some people report it also has positive effects on TG-01 (nico101) and S200/F1 (hdubli).

To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. 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...
