Here we go with a latest update from the Search Giant, Google which has just now unveiled that Android 4.0, or Ice Cream Sandwich’s native theme, known as ‘Holo’, is necessary for any Android 4.0 device in order to have access to the Search Giant’s plethora of apps, as well as the Android Market.
As you are aware, that Ice Cream Sandwich’s native UI theme would be seated into the Operating System level of the platform, however, to compulsory access to the Android Market? This is quite a step further than earlier thought to be.
The Search Giant’s default Holo theme is basically a set of UI widgets and design elements, which developers can utilize in developing apps. Despite the fact that this may perhaps indicate that the Search giant has opened the choice to third-party developers to design widgets and apps with the native theme, it does not at all signify that Google is mandating the usage of the theme on anyone, in particular not manufacturers.
Google’s Holo theme will strike as the default theme for any app that does not request exclusively the device’s default skin, which essentially indicates that the look and feel of third-party Android skins, like HTC’s Sense UI, Samsung’s TouchWiz, and others, won’t integrate as deep into third -party apps apart from developers design them to do so.
