I haven't found a lot of themes that I like using on my Torch, but that changed when I stumbled across this theme. I fell in love instantly with the adorable graphics, smooth interface and attention to detail in every aspect. The patterns resemble cut paper, and the colors are eye-catching without being overwhelming. The little birds on each screen make me smile, and the overall feel of this theme is comfortable and fun. I also wanted to mention that The Birds is an award winning theme, having taken first place in the BlackBerry Theme Design Competition 2010 in Hong Kong, sponsored by RIM.
The Birds is FREE in BlackBerry App World, and is compatible with all devices running OS 4.5 - 5.0, and the Torch. For more information/screenshots and to download The Birds
Shooter by Pootermobile
OK guys, I didn't leave you out. The new theme from Pootermobile called Shooter is the most manly theme I've ever seen so I hope that makes up for all the girly-ness above.
First person shooter video games are very popular these days. Whether it be Call of Duty, Halo or any other game tons of people love them. So why not have a similar experience on you BlackBerry? With Shooter you will not only have a gun pop up to reveal 6 cross-hairs doubling as customizable apps, you will also be able to shoot the gun. Yes you read correctly, you can shoot the gun on the screen and see an animation never seen in a theme like this. If you are a fan of first person shooter games pick up this theme today!
