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?
Trust: Event Logger Helps You Find the Problem
We’ve spent the last few weeks telling you about logcat. This includes what it is and why it’s useful, as well as some apps to help make it easier. Since logs are always important in finding bugs and fixing them, it’s in the best interest of anyone troubleshooting a problem to have access to logs. Now, there’s an application available that will keep logs of practically everything going on with your device.
Developed by XDA Recognized Developer Dark3n, the application is called Trust: Event Logger. Trust keeps track of almost any important action on your device to help with troubleshooting a number of issues. A few of the things this app will monitor includes:
Screen on/off events
Loss of wifi/cell connectivity
This can help track down any number of issues, especially on devices that frequently lose WiFi or cell signal. Those kinds of issues are surprisingly common. The only issue with the application is that it only shows the last 24 hours of activities. This is probably good for your storage space, but may not help if you’re investigating a problem long term.

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...
