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?
Toshiba TG01 Finally has Android Running
This is good news for the Toshiba TG01 owners. XDA member Markinus presents the first test build of Android/Linux running on this device. The developer informs of the latest updates of what is working:
- Added touchscreen buttons
- Added first Test Build! Extract to sd and run haret! Look to Post 2.
- Touchscreen is working now. I had to recalculate the calibration values. Later we have to look to better calibration values, it has the resistive buttons working.
On the last pages of the original thread, there are two more builds working great, according to some members.
Please be sure to know what are you doing before proceeding, as it may cause problems to your device.
If you want to try the test build, please leave feedback so the developer can improve future versions.

I have now a TG01 too, and will start to develop some Linux stuff on it.
I will create a new branch for it in our htcleo repository because some things we can use for both. If I have something what you could try, I will post it here.
I did already a bit reasearch and put some new stuff in the htc linux wiki. I will update it if I found something new.
We need to research much stuff. And all this needs much time. So don’t ask for dates

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...
