HOLO has become a standardized and widely used UX on Android apps. That swipable left-side bar allows developers to full-screen apps while guaranteeing access to all its features. It's practical, intuitive and beautiful.
However, some of the most recurrently used apps still look like ports from its iOS versions. If you want to apply a Holo layout to them, go get Creative Trendz's Holofication Nation. The app includes mods for 4 apps so far: Instagram, Grooveshark, CNN and Steam. In order to make them run you must uninstall the Google Play version of those apps and download the mod for Holofication Nation. No worries, you can do it directly from the app.
After that, you will have full access to all the features of those apps, as if you were using the GPlay version. The main difference lies on the Holo layout: swipable left side bar that guarantees a more user-friendly navigation.
Any of those apps can be updated and sync from Holofication Nation app. In addition, the app supports themes and it's fully customizable.
Although I'm missing support for more apps (more mods), hands down, the idea backing it's groundbreaking. Truly recommended if you are a hard user of any of those 4 apps.
