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?
New Windows Phone 7 ROM Image Released
A new build (6176) of the Windows Phone 7 OS image (for the x86 emulator) has been released with the Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP Refresh, and xda-devs member RustyGrom has unlocked it using the same method as for the old (6077) ROM image in the SDK.

The interface is currently quite simplistic and will probably be updated as development continues.

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.

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...
