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?
XDA-Developers Beginning to Get Noticed
Well, we always thought that our “little” forum always went unnoticed to anyone outside of the Android/Windows Mobile/Windows Phone 7 hacking community. According to an article by The Business Insider, that is hardly the case. As it turns out, some business publications normally put up “the top xx on xx”, which are basically small articles to help readers and end users a ranking system of where they could get help if needed or where they should go for the best of the best. In this particular case, the article titled “The Top 25 Tech And Gadget Gurus You Should Follow On Twitter” featured a wide display of professional publications and bloggers from our beloved tech industry. People from gdgt, Facebook, and many other online publications were featured, but the best part is that so did we!! And not only that, we actually made it about half way through in that ranking, landing in the 14th place. Needless to say, this is only featuring the Twitter accounts for all the different individuals and as xda-developers has its own Twitter account, the whole site got featured as opposed to a single individual.
It is always an honor and great to know that people actually know about us in the outer borders of our device filled worlds. In the name of all the site, we thank you for noticing and for featuring us.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
