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?
Simplify Your Music Experience in Android with Just Music
Music players have evolved through the years, and their user interfaces with them. The UI in some of these has gotten overly complex as they have controls that will allow users to do more than just play music. XDA member mrodlies decided that it was time to roll this complexity back a few notches and came up with this simplistic (almost Zune look-alike) music player concept for Android. The app’s name is still being thought of, but it matches the concept of the player rather well as it is very light and more focused on the music than on the UI itself.
The player is still under development, but if you like the idea and think that you can help bring this concept to life, please drop by the thread and talk to the dev.
I’ve tried so many music apps for android, yet I keep running back to my Zune80 to play music. I do this because it is just a better experience for playing music. The problem with this is I have to carry both my Vibrant and my Zune. So I started working on a simplistic music app called Just Music(working name, not final).

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...
