This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

TWRP Running On The HD2!
You may remember that a few months ago, TeamWin released their own recovery image for Android devices. Much like ClockworkMod, Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) can be used across a wide variety of devices. Thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer arif-ali, this highly multi-functional recovery image can also be used in the legendary HD2. This recovery image is still a work in progress but it allows the end user to seamlessly do all the customization that he/she is used to and much more. TWRP specializes in handling partitions in a much more thorough manner than other recovery images as it allows you to select individual partitions to back up, re-size, and much more. It also allows you to customize the background color of the whole interface, so it does not get boring.
The dev in this case did enough work on the original development to get it going for the HD2 and has so far obtained a rather good resulting port. There are only a couple of minor bugs, which are reported in post #3 of the thread. If you do have an HD2 and would like to help the dev with this, please leave your feedback.
TeamWin Recovery Project, or twrp for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
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?
