This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see? While we've got a lot of leaked information from the highly expected S6 and M9, there is still a lot to learn about both - and about everything else that will be shown. What kind of trends will...
New App For Android Determines Whether or Not You Should Wear Pants
The most important question when waking up in the morning is whether or not you should wear pants. Logic (and the law) typically answer that question for us, but in some cases, the weather plays a factor—like when it’s below freezing outside, it’s probably a good idea to wear pants. Now, there is an application that gives you clothing tips based on the weather outside.
XDA Forum Member Floppie7th, along with a developer team, developed an application called “Should I Wear Pants?” and it’s actually pretty useful. Despite the comical name, it’s actually a weather application with a very unique customization. As Floppie7th explains:
“Should I Wear Pants?” is a novelty weather app that takes your location, gender, and temperature preferences, retrieves your local weather, and lays out for you what to wear.
Here are some of the features:
Jacket versus T-shirt
Pants versus shorts
Temperature preferences for all available slots
Temperature units preference – Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin
Optionally, fun holiday outfits on major holidays (US holidays, that is – for those outside the US, we’re open to adding outfits for your holidays, we just don’t have them yet)
This is a very nifty application that puts an end to those days when you have to open the back door and take a half-step outside to see how cold it is. Based on the weather and temperature, the app lets you know what you would wear based on your preferences. How cool is that?
For more details, check out the application thread.

Last week, I wrote about the best apps to unleash the raw photographic power of your Lollipop smartphone. All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
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?
