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?
S-Planner App from Galaxy S III Ported to Galaxy S II
Have you tried out the Galaxy S III and love the exclusive bundled apps? Do you want those apps, but find yourself satisfied with last year’s Galaxy S II and don’t want to shell out your hard-earned cash just to get those apps? You don’t have to, thanks to your beloved developer community here at XDA.
In May, we shared with you the new TouchWiz Launcher from the Galaxy S III ported to the Galaxy S II, and just a few days back, we brought you news that the floating Video Player from Galaxy Note had been ported as well. Now, the S-Planner app from the SGSIII has also been ported to work on the SGSII.
Ported by XDA Forum Member mythtrandyr, this app has been edited to work properly on the lower screen resolution of the SII.

The developer is working on a fix, and it will be available in a future version.
You can find more details and download the app in the forum thread.

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

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...
