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?
LeoExtendedNotifications – Blink Keypad on Notifications
Do you want more than your LED to blink when you miss a call, sms or email? Well check out LeoExtendedNotifications by NetRipper. The app blinks the keypad when there are notifications. NetRipper has made a few versions of the app for calls only, email only, sms only, or a combination of the three. Only one version should be installed.

Here’s a list of ideas some people want me to add, but I don’t make any promises and I tend to spend my time on other things:
- Disable notifications after X minutes.
- Ability to select the type of notifications by configuration.
- Ability to change the blinking sequence (speed, number of blinks, etc).
- Distinct sequences per notification type.

- Temporarily don’t blink when a call is active, even if there are notifications.
- Disable blinking after unlock (until newer notifications come up).
- Notify on voicemail.

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