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?
Hone Your Sudoku Skills with Sudo+
Earlier we featured a new take on an old favorite with iCube by XDA Forum Member UnnyHog. The game let us relive the simple joys of old fashioned labyrinth games, but with gorgeous 3D graphics and a reworked input method. However, there are times when we would like to use our thinking caps a little more, and for those instances, games like Sudoku can be great brain games.
Let’s face it, though, playing Sudoku with a paper and pencil can quickly become tedious. After all, it becomes a procedure to sit down, find a suitable table or desk, and play, rather than simply pulling your phone out of your pocket. Of course, there are probably hundreds of Sudoku games available in the Play Store. However, XDA Forum Member pofufo brings us a new take that has a very polished interface with a pop-up input method, cell annotation, intelligent hints, and more.
The game is quite streamlined, with a simple tap allowing you to enter a number, a long tap for annotations, and a double tap to add a highlight. The game also features automatic progress saving and the ability to undo and redo moves. Best of all, Sudo+ is free with absolutely no limitations and advertisements.
Head over to the game thread and give your mind a challenge. While you’re there, be sure to leave feedback for the developer!

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...

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...
