L Theme MINI by Themerzz
If you happen to browse through the theme section of the forums, no doubt you've seen how members post requests for themes. This time Themerzz answered the call for those looking for an L style theme reminiscent of the ones found on older devices. Part of a series, L Theme with Mini Icons is a lovely design that works flawlessly on my BlackBerry Bold 9900. Using a couple of hotkeys, users can show/hide the left and bottom dock to create the L effect. Everything about this theme is fast and smooth and the display is crystal clear. I also like how you get all that extra real estate for your wallpapers thanks to the small icons, top banner, and how the date/time has been moved to accommodate with custom fonts. As of now it's available for BlackBerry 99xx devices for $1.99 at the link below.
O..o..o Sunny Day by MNG Theme
If you are on the prowl for a cute and carefree theme then Sunny Day by MNG Theme is for you. With its unique and simple layout, pastel colors and backgrounds, adorable icons and hidden dock (for OS 5/6 devices only), this is certainly a design that will dress up your display. Sunny Day is stylish and functional and also offers custom fonts for those who want a change from the default ones. This unique and colorful theme is available in BlackBerry App World for $1.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9620/30/50, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
Round One 3D by AlmostDone
Another theme that makes me yearn for the past is Round One 3D by AlmostDone with its old school OS 5 icons. There will be two other themes in this series (Round Two = OS 6 icons, Round Three = OS 7 icons) but until then you can enjoy this classic look with an animated 3D layout on the homescreen. Round One is not only wallpaper friendly but features a hideable weather slot and hotkeys to access your applications. This is a simple theme that offers a great concept and is easy to use. What more could you possibly look for in a theme? Round One 3D supports BlackBerry 8330/50, 8520/30, 8900/10/80, 9000, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70, 9620/30/50, 9700/80/88/90, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher. You can grab it in BlackBerry App World for $.99.
Cool Graffitti Theme by themeArt
themeArt can always be relied upon to create imaginative and inventive themes. Cool Graffitti Theme is no different and features a custom icon set, redesigned interface, wild backgrounds and calling screens, and vibrant colors. This fully customized theme is $.99 in BlackBerry App World and is a pleasant design for your display. Cool Graffitti Theme is a pleasant design and is compatible with most BlackBerry devices running OS 4.6 and higher.
And the winning color in the BGD 'M' series forums contest is ...
M_Purple by BerryGlowDesigns
Not too long ago BGD held a forums contest for CB members to choose the next color in their M series. The wait is finally over and the winning color and icon combination is purple with OS 7 icons. Not just any purple I might add, but a lovely shade that stands out on your display. I've said it once and I'll say it again, the M series is one of BGD's finest designs and no matter which color you choose they are fresh and vibrant. I love the simplicity of their designs and how clean and pleasing to the eye they are especially with the box design around the icons. As promised, this theme is available to download in BlackBerry App World for FREE and you won't be disappointed. M_Purple is compatible with most devices running OS5 & OS 6 and the 99xx running OS 7 and higher.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll!
