As we approach a year since the introduction of the Android L preview and Material Design, more and more apps of all shapes and sizes (figuratively speaking) are getting their acts together when it comes to the user interface. The latest is Dayframe, a favorite of desktop tablet users and Chromecast aficionados, which gets its paperrific update with version 3.0 today. The standard version is available in the Play Store, and the upgraded version is accessible via a $3 in-app purchase.

Since Dayframe is so focused on its collection of photo streams and the full-screen viewing of the same, you might not even notice the Material Design elements that have been added. The app now has a distinct top-mounted action bar and a slide-out menu, and that's about all it needs - sorry, no floating action button. Other changes in this version include always-on buttons to loop the current photo stream and shuffle all of them, though these are only available to premium users - see the right-most screenshot above.

There's also a new Device Administrator privilege to allow better timer integration, an upgrade to Facebook's Graph 2.0 API, and the usual bug fixes. Users have lately been complaining of some serious performance issues with Dayframe, particularly after upgrading to the premium app, so here's hoping the latest version fixes some of the more subtle problems.
