MarketPlaceRegionSwitch for WM

From time to time we bring you an article that is not new but in relevance still actual. This time, we bring up this great application created by Developer and Moderator Chainfire.聽MarketplaceRegionSwitch does exactly what the name implies, allows you to change your market place region to any other you want without the need to manually modify registry settings, regional settings or any other complicated method, no need to even soft reset. The UI is really ugly but as the developer mentioned, the main focus is on the functionality of the application.
Please be sure to read the entire original thread before proceeding.

Here it is people, as promised, MarketPlaceRegionSwitch. What does it do? It allows you to switch MarketPlace to USA, Germany, France, Netherlands, etc. Whatever you want – without mucking with regional settings, soft-resetting, etc. “because I can” 馃槢

I DEMAND you read the entire post before using it, because there are definitely things you should know before using it.

This app actually fools Marketplace into thinking you are from somewhere else. This method is not foolproof, and may be circumvented by Microsoft in the near future. It is not for the faint of heart either.

Why?
Because developers have been left in the cold for manually verifying their apps are in the correct markets. Microsoft have dropped the ball a few times with “published” apps seemingly not being published at all, or incorrectly. While I’m sure Microsoft will fix these issues in due time (and indeed provide the functionality this program offers) for now developers need to check this for themselves. So no, this app is not meant for end-users, but for developers. If you still want to use it, that’s fine by me, but it’s on your own conscience

You can find more information in the聽application thread.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
