ICS Holo Purple Skin Released

The new skin is available on Google Play or here. (I will post a link to the skin on google play when it becomes visible)

Edit: there was a minor bug where older versions of android would not show the album icon.  I have pushed a fix for that so be sure to redownload the skin if you have that issue.
