Classic 7 Memo Plus by AlmostDone

Kicking things off this week is a simple and elegant design for your legacy BlackBerry device. This classic looking theme is reminiscent of those found on older devices. It offers the ability to change the background on the application screen using an image file on your device memory, a weather slot, a zen style layout with OS 7 icons, and hotkeys for various and functions. While icons in folders may be hidden because of the level of customization, it is compatible with the BlackBerry Bold 99xx running OS 7.1 and is quite lovely.

Emotion Face by 4U

Nothing like a cute and lively theme to help put a smile on your face each and every day. This one takes those familiar emoticons and puts them center stage in this funny theme. Whether you agree or not it features bright colors, custom notification and message indicators, an amazing icon set, and can be purchased for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900, 9220, 9300/20/30/60/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9630/50, 9700/80, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.

Cutie Donuts Sweet by MMMOOO

Another adorable design I couldn't resist including is this delicious confectionery item. What sets this apart is the animated donut on the homescreen which appears even on OS 7 devices. It's a very nice touch to an adorable theme that does make you wonder just how they did that. Another reason it draws attention is the completely new doodle icon set that animate when the cursor moves over them. You certainly can't go wrong with this solid theme that is compatible with most devices running OS 4.5 and higher. Theme addicts are sure to enjoy it and can download it for FREE using the link below. Please note it does default to a tray style theme for OS 7 devices but those eye popping custom colors and the overall look remains the same.

Blue HEX by StyleFlowDesktop

Looking for a professional style that doesn't make too many changes to the stock theme? This pleasant blue hex design is nice for when you want to change things up a bit. With its metro style application icons and custom menus and highlights, it gives your display an entirely new look. It supports BlackBerry 9220, 9310/20/50/60/80, 9790, 9810/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 7 and higher and is $0.99.

Aqua Speed Theme by Themerzz

Our final theme this week is from a developer no stranger to the roundup thanks to their hard work, quality and amazing catalog. I am dazzled by their latest theme and love the blue shades and how they are used throughout. I also must point out the stunning auto background and how it brings life to the display. What you can always count on with Themerzz is that their custom designs are always balanced and the homescreen offers a pleasant layout with no element being out of place. It also offers a unique clock in the upper left hand corner, the ability to show/hide the weather slot, custom meters, semi-transparent menus and dialog boxes, and an original BlackBerry 10 icon set. Nothing more to say really other than it's available for $1.99 and that icons will be hidden in folders but that is due to the extent of the customization. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8350i, 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 5 and higher.

Do you have anything with turn by turn directions? Because that's what I need after the massive bb Maps Update fiasco.

Ok. Got that off my chest. Off I go!

Hmm hopefully one day we could customize BlackBerry 10 devices with themes and icons.

Not to beat a dead horse but what did exactly happen to the map update? I can't even open the app anymore...The themes look awesome, btw! :)
