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?
TouchXperience Coming in March
I’m sure some of you know a developer around here named Schaps (the one responsible for bringing you Advanced Config as well as other really cool apps). He has a project called TouchXperience, which is essentially a new UI for WM. A lot of us thought it was an abandoned project, but in reality it has been far from that.

I wanted to deliver a touch user interface at the level of what exists on iPhone and other Androids, as you can imagine it was a hard challenge… I hope the video demo will impress you.
See the YouTube demo.
There were a lot of changes compared to the first demos I showed on last year, especially a new graphic engine which benefits from hardware acceleration to deliver a smooth and high level 3D UI. But the basis remains the same: the user interface has many panels easily accessible and highly customizable and those panels can contain widgets or menus. TouchXperience offers hundred of widgets and menu items, also built-in menus which replace traditional system menus or add some nice functionalities.
TouchXperience will be open to developers (even beginners) who could develop their own widgets and other plugins. The first public beta will be available end of March (if all is ok). Private beta testers should get TouchXperience this month.
I hope I gave you a good reason to keep on with Windows Mobile!
I for one can only hope this will be QVGA as well. Continue to the thread to follow his progress.

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...
