Whenever the discussion of apps with bad UI comes up, Tasker - powerful as it may be - is always one of the first to be mentioned. Because, let's face it, it's pretty hideous. In the early days of Android, this wasn't much of an issue, as there was no standard UI. Or, you know, the Android Style Guide. In the past year or so, though, Google has really been pushing a the clean look of ICS+, Holo, and a consistent experience across applications.

Since Tasker is one of the most popular, yet not-so-easy-on-the-eyes applications out there, the Android team decided to demonstrate how great the app could look on this week's Android Design in Action, and the result is fantastic. The first 20 minutes or so of the video are dedicated to the re-theming of Tasker, so you can check that out to see it all in action. Otherwise, just take a look at the shots down below.

At this point, I think there's only one thing left to say: Want. So. Hard.

If Tasker looked like this, I could see myself using it a lot more. Gimme.
