Contest: 50 Copies of Animated Space Theme to be won. Leave a comment!

Theme Roundup

Happy Tuesday to our loyal theme junkies. We have spent the last week sorting through the emails we have received, and have a stellar lineup of both free, and paid themes. After last week's overdose of pink, we have banished the girly colors from this weeks selection to balance things out (although we did delve into the giftable theme Valentino for that special someone). Hit the jump for our picks.

Free Themes of the Week

Non-Touchscreen

Reverie D

Our Top free non-touchscreen theme is Reverie D by forums member dagobah30. The theme is minimal and "takes a backseat" to your wallpaper. The theme comes in multiple variations and includes such key features as weather slot, Hidden Today, Quciklaunch/ShortcutMe integration (they are not included), clickable/toggle-able bottom bar, and user customizable icons. Overall this is a very simple yet functional theme. Reverie D is free via the threads linked below, donations are welcome.

Touchscreen

Glasklart Storm

We recently came across a very nice series of free Storm themes in the forums. Glasklart Storm by forums member zcyclist is available in 3 different versions: Glasklart5 (5 homescreen icons with hidden today), Glasklart10 (10 homescreen icons with hidden today) and GlasklartLandscape (10 homescreen icons, 5 docked on each side). All 3 versions feature the same natural wallpaper, homescreen hotspots, and custom icons. If your looking for a professional, free theme to dress up your Storm, one of Glasklart's 3 versions will suit you.

Paid Themes of the Week

Non-Touchscreen

Animated Space Theme

Our top paid theme pick for non-toucscreen devices goes to Animated Space Theme by blue solutions inc. I am a big fan of minimalist themes. I absolutely hate too much clutter on my homescreen, preferring a clean look to tons of icons. The Animated Space Theme strips away all the icons from my homescreen, leaving me with a great view of the wallpaper. The wallpaper is an animated spinning globe in space, which adds a touch of flair to an otherwise simple theme. The theme includes hidden icons for profiles, clock, and manage connections allowing you to retain function while adding a great clean look to your BlackBerry. Its available for $3.99 for the Tour, 8900, 9700, and Storm devices.

Touchscreen

BB NightBlue

BB NightBlue by BB Themes Unlimited brings a sleek, classy look to your Storm 95xx device. The theme features custom icons, graphics, and transitions that go very well together throughout the entire theme. You can set 6 of your favorite apps to the homescreen which are raised above the bottom area that is used for notifications. If you would like a dark, classy look on your Storm, we definitely would recommend this. BB NightBlue is available for $4.95 at the Crackbberry App Store. They also support this theme for most other non-touchscreen devices.

Bonus Theme

Valentino

Valentino Giftable PrimeTheme by DreamTheme does something another theme you can grab just in time for Valentine's Day. They do it a little different though. When purchasing this theme, you receive one theme for you, and another at no charge for that special someone in your life. Valentino is available for most Blackberry's for $5.99 (remember, you get a matching one free), and you can save 15% more by entering the code "IHEARTCB " at the mobile checkout.

Contest: We have 50 copies of Animated Space Theme 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.

Thanks for reading, as always we will be back next week. Developers so far have been very generous and we hope to continue having a contest every week. If you have any suggestions or theme recommendations, feel free to email us at themeroundup@crackberry.com.

I've tried many themes but always come back to the default Precision Zen. Many themes are buggy, cause huge memory leaks and deteriorate overall performance. Most unfortunate is that they all make third-party icons look completely out of place. When will RIM develop a truly workable alternative theme that solves all of the abovementioned problems?

looking for another new theme. Thanks for the giveaways it is a great way to promote yourself and for us to do so as well

But the NightBlue, to me, looks the best. I would love to have the animated tho, too. Please pick me!

I've been a theme junkie since I got my 9700 but I've never had an animated theme before- this would complete the collection!

It would make a great birthday gift to me if I were chosen as one of the 50 chosen for the Animated Space theme. I am 28 today February 9th, 2010 and I would love to celebrate it with getting a sweet ass theme for my storm 2.

Your "Space" theme is quite cool! When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be an astronomer and have always had an interest in the sky and space. Would love to have this as a freebie! Thanks -

That animated Earth theme looks FREAKING SWEET!!!! This might be one worth buying. Please may I win? Consider it a gift for my new baby coming in a couple weeks! PLEASE PLEASE!!!

Groveling is OK right?

I've always been a little spacey, so what a better way to show everyone I finally agree then with a new SPACE THEME!!!

I do not own a compatible device so it would be wasted, but I did want to post a comment that the theme looks terrific. I also prefer a minimalist theme to show off the wallpaper and the spinning globe is a great eye catcher. I will look for this theme designer in the future and hopefully they will offer some 8520 themes. Again, awesome theme and congratulations to all the people who win this one.

I LOVE the spinning Earth on this theme!

I would be the envy of everyone at work with this theme if I wasn't the envy of everyone at work for my beautiful BB 9700!!!!

I am a space wallpaper fan; desktop, laptop and BB all have space backgrounds to choose from. Winning one of the animated space themes would be wonderful. Thank you for the opportunity.

Come on now, Mars-Fan. You know the PLANET, as in outer space. So I should be a shoo in to win a Space Theme.
