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?
iManager – 3D Task Manager for WM
XDA member antru has developed a very cool app for Windows Mobile. The app is a 3D task manager that is comparable to switching between active windows on Windows 7 or Vista. The app allows you to flick through running windows and open them with a single tap. It runs very fast as shown in the video and is still experimental.
You must have WM >= 5.0 to run it and hardware accelerated 3D Graphics. It uses 1 MB per window task also. The list of currently tested devices is:
1. HTC Max 4G
2. HTC Touch Diamond (to slow yet)
3. HTC Touch HD
4. Dell Axim x51v
5. Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2
If you would like to contribute and try it out yourself, feel free to join the discussion thread and download it. Report your feedback and bug reports to the developer as usual!

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...
