Hey everyone, welcome back to the BlackBerry Theme Roundup! If you have developed a theme you want to share or be featured in the contest, or if you just see a really good one out there somewhere, send it in! Send an email to themeroundup[at]crackberry.com for consideration. In the meantime, check out this week's picks and enter to win a free copy of Shadow of 6 by BBThemes! Contest details after the break.
Whether you are a Canucks fan or not, this is a cool theme. Featuring OS 6.1 icons, a weather slot, 5 icon hidden dock, hot spots, custom meters, and more, this theme is really functional and packs a lot into your home screen. Foberry decided to keep the team spirit alive mostly through just the color scheme, so even if you aren't a fan of the team, you can still enjoy the theme simply by using your own wallpaper. This theme is FREE and compatible with the BlackBerry Torch!
BlackBerry theme developers keep getting more clever with each creation. Walker Themes has just released HeartBeat, and it is so unique and beautiful, I think a lot of you are going to really love it. With a two-color clock and abstract battery and signal meters as well as a hidden dock and weather slot (activated by the three small circles at the bottom of the screen) on the home screen, its a delightfully minimal look. Your wallpapers will look great with this theme. The text based icons are handmade in blue and white, and when you scroll over them it's as though the focus is breathing, pulsating when you pause on an icon. There are tons of great features in HeartBeat that make this an awesome theme.
HeartBeat is available for $5.99, but for a limited time there are coupon codes posted that allow you to get the theme for $2.99, $3.99, or $4.99. Check the link below for details. The theme is compatible with BlackBerry 8350i, 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 91xx, 93xx, 95xx, 96xx, 97xx, and 9800.
The BlackBerry PlayBook was released last week, and one of the coolest features it brought with it is the implementation of gestures to help you navigate through different screens and options. GestureBB is the first theme I have seen to bring that functionality to the non-touchscreen BlackBerry! From the home screen you use your trackpad to swipe in each of the 4 directions to access different functions.
GestureBB is very intuitive and easy to learn. There are two versions of the theme. The first is called GestureBBCandyland, which has a colorful background and retro dimension icons. If you prefer a more subtle look, GestureBBSimple has a cleaner layout and BB6 icons. You can pick up either version on sale now for just $1.49 (regularly $2.99) for your BlackBerry 9650 or 97xx (BB6 OS only).
Are you looking for a dark colored theme that will add a quiet touch of class to your BlackBerry, and blend well with a variety of wallpapers? Shadow of 6 by BBThemes is possibly just what you're looking for. Take the familiar feel of the BB6 UI and combine it with monochrome OS 6.1 icons and shades of gray throughout, and you have the perfect combination. Go ahead and take your BlackBerry for a walk on the dark side. It looks so sleek on your device, and will work perfectly in both professional and personal settings. Available for just $1.99, Shadow of 6 is compatible with BlackBerry 91xx, 93xx, 9650/70, 97xx, and 9800.
