First up this week is a theme that is not only functional but wonderful to look at. It features a unique icon set, beautiful Parisian backgrounds, a custom top banner that remains even if you change wallpapers, and a skinned BBM screen. I happen to like the tiny Eiffel Tower icon present in the popup menus and dialog boxes. For OS 5 and 6 devices it offers an animated icon on the homescreen that falls down from the top. Staring at this theme everyday would probably make you want to book a plane ticket to France but I’ll settle for the view on my BlackBerry. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8350, 8520/30, 8900/10/80, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9620/30/50, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher. You can grab it for only $0.99.
Are cute themes more your style? Then check out this adorable design from chicorie. Everything about this theme screams sugary sweet goodness with its top to bottom graphics, cute icon set, and bold colors that are woven throughout all of the menus, popups, and highlights. Why not liven up your day and pick this up for $1.99? It will certainly remind you of a nice summer’s day no matter where you are. This cute little teddy bear theme supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900, 9220, 9300/15/20/30/60/80, 9620/30/50, 9700/80, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.
This week I couldn’t help but include another charming, fully customized theme. Tiffany LaHope delivers a beauty filled with delightful pastel colors, cute backgrounds, redesigned top banner, cute icon set, and wallpaper which features a little girl with her bag of popcorn waiting for the film to start. Being that it is skinned from top to bottom, icons in folders will be hidden, but users may access them in universal search or by moving them to the homescreen. This FREE theme is available for the BlackBerry 8520/30, 8900, 9000, 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/80, 9500/20/30/50, 9650/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher.
Browsing through BlackBerry World I happened to land upon this elegant design. What caught my attention was not the colorful icon set or the custom fonts but the inventive homescreen icon arrangement and how it blends with the dark background. There is also the inventive way the custom battery and signal meters, clock, date/time, and the network icons are perfectly placed on the right hand side as well. This well-balanced theme can be purchased for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9650, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.
Our final spot this week goes to a theme that is geared towards those who adore the color pink. Everything about this fanciful theme bursts at the seams with the blushing color as it finds itself embedded in the backgrounds, banners, icons, and call and lock screens without being overpowering. What you will notice though are the customized battery and signal meters, friendly user interface due to the quick access dock on the homescreen, and hidden today. You can find this lovely design for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8350i, 8520/30, 8900/10/80, 9000, 9220, 9300/10/20/50/60/80, 9650, 9700/80/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/81 running OS 4.6 and higher.
