Going through the inbox submissions there was this floral design by optimisedtech. It features their unique icon set, custom colors and calm, relaxing backgrounds that are part of a slide show with a one hour interval. This is a soothing and pleasant design that makes minor changes to the basic UI of your compatible Torch device running OS 6 and higher. You can find it for the 9800/10/50 for $0.99 in BlackBerry World.
My summer has been filled with following the racing events thanks to BlackBerry and Mercedes F1 so naturally I thought it only fitting to include this full throttle theme. With the gorgeous auto themed wallpapers, bright and colorful custom notification and application icons, and redesigned homescreen, it certainly knows how to make your display stand out. While it reverts to a tray style theme for OS 7 devices, it gives your handset an entirely new look for $0.99. It supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9620/50, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60 and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
There is nothing like a smooth and simple theme with a splash of color to give your display some flair especially with the bright blue glow. This motif is seen throughout all of the menus, call screens, and backgrounds. This is a nice touch for those seeking something more low key in terms of changes made to the original stock UI. As this professional design is entirely free to download it doesn't hurt to give it a whirl on your theme rotation. This theme is compatible with BlackBerry 8520-30, 9220, 9300/20/30/50/60/80, 9650, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.
I'm always on the prowl for themes that defy convention. In this case, I happened to come across this lovely and most definitely different design in BlackBerry World. I've featured TMK in the past because I loved their comic style yet this one is nothing like the others in their catalog. The wooden style is what sets it apart and I just love how they transferred the grain appearance to the icon set as well. It may not be average but it will certainly garner some attention. This classic wooden heart theme features a five icon hidden dock, the aforementioned icon set with tiny heart selector, and custom colors. You can find this striking theme for $0.99 and it is available for BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900, 9000, 9220, 9300/30/60/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9630/50, 9700/80, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30 running OS 4.6 and higher.
Think your device has what it takes to be a star? Now you can showcase your favorite wallpapers with this energetic design. While it is wallpaper friendly, the big yellow star does remain on the screen no matter which one of your own backgrounds you switch to. It is a nice effect to frame some of your images though some of them might be blocked by the graphic. Also included are BlackBerry 10 icons, the standard BlackBerry layout, impact style font, and an orange and yellow color scheme. You can grab it at the link below for $0.99 and it supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900/10/80, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9620/30/50, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.5 and higher..
