Holo FM Radio Gives the Defy a Jelly Bean-Flavored FM Radio

Often times when upgrading between different versions of Android, especially if done unofficially, the manufacturer-provided apps fall behind and retain last year’s designs. While this isn’t a huge deal, as they will generally function perfectly, opening up an application on ICS or Jelly Bean and seeing an app with Gingerbread styling can really mess with a device’s feng shui. For the Motorola Defy, which recently received an unofficial update to Jelly Bean, the apps that can be ported to it are still themed for Gingerbread.

Rather than commit digital fashion suicide, XDA Senior Member royale1223, along with a number of other members, have given the FM Radio app a makeover to make it look better with the new Holo theme. Of course, the looks weren’t the only thing changed. The code has also been updated to make the app work more like a Jelly Bean app. As royale1223 explains:

Two weeks ago maniac103 decompiled the MotoFM radio from GB. You all know the Moto FM Radio. The UI is ugly. It won’t look good in JB. So I decided to give her a makeover. The coding part is almost done. Since I suck bigtime in drawing It’s time for tha community to give something back. I know there are some real talented designers here.

While that states that app is almost done, the modified application has actually been released. Starting out as a red, blocky application, it has gained a new, sleek blue/silver look and has been made to work better with Jelly Bean. If there had been before and after pictures, they could’ve done an infomercial.
