Theme Roundup

It's been a busy week over here at Theme Roundup head office, most of it being taken up with follow up to the CrackBerry theme from last week that so many of you enjoyed. We got some great tips on the roundup email, and there have been some great new free themes hitting the forums. Read on through the jump for our picks from the past week.

Free Themes of the Week



Our top pick for free non-touchscreen this week is B-Clock by gdekock74. Feeling an urge to show some love for the trusty Curve 8330, I found this theme while cruising through the forums. With a revamped L-style layout to the homescreen and a large font clock in the middle, this theme refreshes the look of your classic Curve homescreen. Custom meters and icons finish off the updated look. Get it from the link below

    Paid Themes of the Week


    Our next pick is ColorfulBB by BB Freaks. Got a great email earlier this week giving me a heads up on this theme, and gave it a spin for myself. I have to say I was impressed with the layout of the homescreen and the use of colour throughout the theme. Featuring a top dock of icons (6 locked) set in a rainbow of flowing colour, a hidden today, and a hidden bottom dock with 9 customizable icons. The beuaty of this theme on the homescreen is offset by the amount of function included. Hiding the dock and today area allows for a very clean homescreen, perfect for displaying your favorite wallpaper. Available in the CB store for $3.99 until April 30th.



    Our final pick of the week is Blackened by RJ Design. For a great professional look for your touch device, check this theme out. Featuring a 4 icon hidden dock, custom icons, weather slot, and a split banner, this theme also incorporates a very cool, novel feature. When a new message arrives, not only does the notification display, but the bottom bar turns red, giving you a further cue that you have new messages. Very wallpaper friendly, and currently on a massive sale. Regularly $4.99 in the CB store, it's currently on sale for just $.99 until April 16th.

    Contest: We have 50 copies of ColorfulBB to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries wont count.

    That concludes our roundup for this week. We hope you enjoyed it, keep those tips and suggestions coming to our email,!

    BlackBerry Theme Roundup for April 12th 2010 - 50 Copies of ColorfulBB to be Won!



    Hey this looks like a really nice and handy theme with all the menu on the main screen itself. I would like to win a copy too :)

    Would love to win a copy of the ColorfulBB theme by BBFreaks... here's to all that may win in this giveaway, thanks to BBFreaks & CrackBerry for hosting such a giveaway!

    These themes look great! I especially like the non-touchscreen colored would look great on my 9630 Tour

    I would ♥ to win the colourul BB theme, it really does look spectacular and would make my BB a whole lot more enjoyable! Excellent work!

    I know the winners are chosen at random. :-P

    All these themes are very nice. I'm a fan of I had a few themes for my 8310 custom made from there.

    Love the unique theme style but also the ability to have so many icons on home screen without having a cluttered look!

    Like WOW look at all those colors. Pretty cool man, or chick or dude or whoever made such beautiful colors. Real awesome theme. Add some color to my storm 2 and let the fireworks begin. Peace :)

    this is my fourth blackberry and the first time i found your site. but since i found it i am always on it. i have downloaded ringtones and your theme from here already but i love themes to personaloze it. i would love this one. thanks for offering them free to lucky people.

    Would you consider me as the winner? since im the newbie and a blackberry free theme hunter. I've downloaded at least 5 free themes from the forum. Nice!! Luv yah!

    Hope I win! hahaha

    EDIT: Nevermind. I dont think its for the 8320. Count me out.

    Oh BTW, the free theme for the Curve doesnt seem to be working as per all the comments in the thread.

    I am currently without a theme! Of course I have the defaults, but what kind of Crackberry member would I be if I had to use a default?!? P.S. I live in DC... Seattle was only for effect ;)
