If you like debugging on your device, you've likely come across CatLog. It's a great reader, with only one issue, the UI is a bit outdated.
Not anymore.
CatLog Holo
As CatLog is open source, I was able to edit it properly, no smali hacks or anything

Screenshots:


Changes:
- Removed top search/actionbar
- Moved pause, expand, delete and search buttons to split toolbar
- Search opens in ActionView in ActionBar
- Reload moved to overflow as you can't easily get menu long press
- Themes changed to Holo equivelents
- New icon

Credits:
Nolan Lawson for the original CatLog (under WTFPL licence)
Source for this version

Download:
XDA attachment
Note that the app has the same package name but a different signature, you will need to uninstall the old CatLog and then install this one

Awesome!
Finally there's a holo version of logcat, I've waited so long for this
Already wanted to do it myself, but never found the time..
I hope you're going to keep it up to date

Are you planning to release it on the Play Store some day?

Depends on whether the actual CatLog developer likes it. I'll try to keep it up to date, the changes aren't huge

So it has the same different signature? wat? I imagine you mean package name.

Looks nice. Now I can debug in style. =D

I hear ya. Thanks for the mod, looks great. Definitely less Gingerbread-like.
You should write something such as "I know I’ve written the best Logcat app for Android." as taken from Nolan's post.

It's signed with my signature, nothing else that isn't by me is signed with that. What you've seen is a fluke I think

Thank you so much, CatLog's original UI was unreadable!

Great work put on Play Store and I'm sure people will support you
