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?
Tap Your Bee all the Way to the “Honey-Line”!
Yes, pun was intended, and it was terrible. But that’s not the point. It’s the distant future and science has progressed so far that humanity now has the ability of helping the neighborhood friendly bees through their daily lives and routines with technology. However, pollution and the negative externalities of industry have weakened our bees, so you, a scientist at Cybernetics Science Laboratories, have been assigned to help out a bee.
That’s the brief backdrop of a game called Cyber Bee, an app developed by XDA Forum Member Maze Software. The aim of the game is to tap and guide your bee through a variety of mazes to reach the honeycomb on the other side, while dodging hornets and bumblebees who block your way, collecting flowers and crates full of goodies such as fuel and bullets. You can deck your bee out with different bodies, weapons and flying mechanisms which improve your bee’s performance and agility, and also allow your bee to fight back against the nasty hornets. There are four different gaming modes each consisting of fifteen levels, ingame grading system and ingame store.
Cyber Bee is most definitely a challenging game, but with a pretty fun and novel concept behind it. It is compatible with Android versions 2.2 and newer, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So if this sounds fun to you, head over to the original thread for more details.

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...

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...
