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?
Team UtterChaos Releases Their Touch Recovery Source
Caring is sharing and in the world of AOSP Android development, that’s more than a motto, it’s basically a rule. More ROMs have been forged from the depths of repositories like Github than any other single source out there and ROMs don’t even comprise all the source code in Android repositories.
It is with the caring and sharing in mind that XDA Senior Member Napster and XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD of Team UtterChaos have merged their Touch versions of ClockworkMod Recovery and have released the repositories containing their source code to the public.
Their mission? To give the code to any developers who want or need it in order to port the super nifty touch recovery to phones that do not yet support it. Of course, they already know that XDA Recognized Developer, and CM Team Recovery Guru Koush has been working on his touch recoveries, but they say:
we are well aware that koush is already working on a touch version of CWM recovery… we do not mean to compete with anyone… since we have been working on this for a while, we felt others might benefit from this and learn something new, we sure did learn a LOT ourselves throughout this project…
So for any developers out there who are yearning to port the ClockworkMod Touch Recovery on their device, you can find the Github link and all additional information in the original 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...
