Free Themes of the Week
First of all thanks to forums member brook196 for sending in Win7 by mrtolles, a great Windows 7 inspired theme. This theme gives your BlackBerry that Windows 7 look, while still keeping things convenient from the homescreen. With 6 user defined icons arrayed in a bottom dock, the "Start" menu alos pops up a hidden dock containing 6 more icons and quick access to the Applications, Media, Downloads, Games, and setup folders. With everything arrayed along the bottom of the screen in a "taskbar" layout, you can rock your favorite wallpaper without anything getting in the way. This theme is free and available for the 8900, 9630, and 9700.
Last Week on the roundup we featured The Cube, another theme by robvb68. He sent us an email last week to let us know about another theme of his, Sophisticate, which I promptly installed to test drive for myself. The look is clean, its very wallpaper friendly, and the theme is geared towards functionality. The version I am currently running has 2 top slots for your choice of apps. 3 hidden bottom docks open the Today section, a 12 icon block, and a Menu dock. Designed with an "every user" perspective, the number of versions and colors available for this theme is astounding for a free theme. Overall the theme works well for both business and casual users, supports any wallpaper, and comes in 15 different versions ensuring there is something for everyone.
Paid Themes of the Week
Eden by jmerhi provides an elegant, beautiful look for your BlackBerry screen that is simply a joy to look at all by itself. The homescreen features 5 static icons in a bottom dock, and 2 hidden side docks holding user customizable icons (3 to 4 each depending on your device). This theme also features one very cool addition, namely an animation of flying birds when a homescreen icon is selected. It is a tasteful, well placed addition, which rounds out the theme very nicely. It is available for a host of devices running OS 4.6 and highe. You can download it from the CrackBerry App Store for $5.99, on sale till January 31st.
