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?
Pinch to Zoom for Any Device Available Soon
Are you jealous that the only WM device that can replicate the multi-touch ability of the iPhone is the HD2? Do you have issues while trying to zoom in on your favorite pictures while using HTC Album? XDA member OndraSter brings us the answer to your prayers. Although it isn’t yet released (but will be soon), this app/driver will enable multi-touch capability on pretty much any WM device with a touchscreen. The dev is currently ironing out a few kinks left and even though he will release it sometime next week, he has released a video showing that this is very much the real thing (no camera tricks, no gimmicks).
Testing and developing device is being used TMOUS HTC Touch Pro 2. No, this isn’t fake using zoombar, this is real thing. Oh and I used Opera 9.7 from TMOUS LEO 2.13 ROM I think .
It should work in theory in any application. It took me about 4 hours to fixup Opera in order to find out, that Album uses different stuff, with Album and other apps I’ll play later this week.
I will provide download and all other support later this week once I fix up last few things. But main functionality is up and running quite fine.
Thanks for watching and let me create one more free post for some stuff (list of supported apps, …)
You can find more information on the development thread.

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...
