Welcome to the official Holofication Nation thread.



Holofication Nation is currently a three man team, however, we plan to expand so we can produce more holo goodness in a shorter
time than the time it takes us to make them right now. Holofication Nation started off on Google+ as a small community,
we started to grow and we still continue to

Current Holofication Nation team members:


Our goal is simple, to do what those big companies can't do, make a decent UI.


Currently we have a small selection of apps, just 5. The small number mean nothing, all of our apps
are up to a high standard to ensure that you have the best experience possible. Even after the first release, we continue to work
on the apps, to squash bugs and improve the UI even further. Below is a list of the current apps that we have modified (The list will grow!)

  • Instagram
  • Steam
  • Pandora
  • CNN
  • Grooveshark
  • Last.FM

You must uninstall the official application to install these mods.

To download our mods, visit our website or join the Google+ community and click "App Releases"

"How do I keep up with your work?"
It's simple, just join our Google+ community, all development will take place there. Other social networking sites will be added soon!

Other information:
  • We will not modify system apps

I would be forever grateful if you could holofy Skype. That thing has gotta be one of the ugliest "popular apps" out there. Sad thing is that I've begun to use it alot...

If you can, can you join the community on Google+ and post this in the Suggestions section, it makes things easier for us to track, thanks.

Judging by the screenshots, your steam app is not HOLO at all. Improper navigation drawer, wrong action overflow button, and other aspects make it definitely not HOLO.

The navigation drawer cannot be modified to be the actual navigation drawer. The overflow button is the correct one which is in use in 4.4 KitKat. I made sure to stick by the design guidelines as closely as I could. At least it's no longer an eye-sore, huh?

I was wondering when we would finally get a central location for things like this. Would you mind posting the instagram without the transparent status bars. Its a little too ios's looking with the action bar flowing into the status bar.

We will be releasing two versions at each update, one without translucent system bars and one without.

Nice idea but you should consider creating xposed modules instead of patching apps.
This way users still can update the apps from playstore and you don't need to patch every version.

that'd be nice.. but I'm not rooted. running stock & the instagram version.

We are looking for somebody to join the Holofication Nation team, their role will be to create an app, the app will provide downloads, updates, screenshots and information about the apps. You will not be paid for this. Please message me if you are interested in this.
