Join the Holofication Nation and Find Your Favorite Apps in Holo Style
Holo UI was introduced just over two years ago with Ice Cream Sandwich. It was Google’s attempt to unify the look of Android, and in time became a quite successful project. Now apps look better, feature pleasing colors, and compose really nice with Jelly Bean or KitKat. Holo became a standard, but some applications still use their own style, which simply doesn’t fit to modern UI.
Some popular applications are still not Holo-ed, and that’s why XDA Forum Member conRAWR started a project aimed to “Holofy” them. So far Holofication Nation, which is the name of the project, modified three applications. Users of Instagram, Steam, and Snapchat can forget about their less than pleasing UIs, and get the most of their Holo experience. The project will surely grow and cover major applications that aren’t converted yet. All requests can be made in the project’s Google+, but you can share your opinion about the apps in the team’s XDA thread.
If you use the aforementioned apps and want to see them in Holo glory, you need to uninstall the official applications and replace them with modified versions. Screens, information, and the modified files, can be found in the original thread. So make your way there, and spread the #holoyolo word.

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched. The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...
Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
