Holo UI has become an integral part of Android ever since the the launch of version 3.0 Honeycomb. Its visual styling has earned quite a few fans, as well as many who actually dislike it. A few days ago, we talked about the Holofication Nation project, where developers are transforming well known applications to better fit the Holo style. Now it’s time to continue this journey and further ‘Holo-ify’ your device.
Starting with Holo UI’s debut in Android 3.0 Honeycomb on the Motorola Xoom, Google has made great strides in bringing top-notch UI design to the platform. Better typography, flat design, and a chromeless (but still pretty) look are all now relatively commonplace thanks largely in part to Matias Duarte’s handiwork.
There are plenty of Xposed modules out there. Their purposes range widely from adding previously device-specific functionality to patching bugs, and everything in between. This is, of course, all made possible by XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s fantastic Xposed Framework (thread) . The framework allows developers to create a module APK that is able to make a modification at runtime, while leaving original files intact. Both a boost in ease-of-use and user safety, Xposed makes device modification into a click and reboot affair.
It is no secret that we are an international community here at XDA. With users living in practically every country on earth, it should come as no surprise that not everyone’s first language is English. However, not every first party Android app retains full functionality when used on other system languages.\
