Contest: 50 Copies of LeatherBB to be won. Leave a comment!


Theme Roundup june 23

It would seem that the word got out there after last week's theme roundup, and my tip line has been filling up all week with tips and suggestions.  Thank you to each and every one of you thsat wrote in, you've really given me some great stuff to work with.  Hit the jump, and we'll get right to it, with some great themes to feature for a range of devices.

Bold

LeatherBB by BBFreaks

Miguel came through in spectacular fashion this week, sending not just one, but four new themes for roundup consideration.  His latest is LeatherBB, which makes a great addition to your Bold device as always.  Beginning with a full set of custom icons, and including custom fonts, banners, meters and menus, this theme delivers the visual appeal that we've come to expect. Three homescreens are available, cycling through a wallpaper friendly screen to two more with different icons, depending on your needs. As always, a free trial is available on all of BBFreaks themes, so give it a go today, and if you like it, it's on sale for $2.99 until June 30th in the CB store.

Tempe by yukinoai

I got a tip the other day from drm2blv, who let me know about a great free themer in the forums.  Her latest, Tempe, ids one of a long series of themes offered up to the CrackBerry community, and shows, at a glance, her ability to put together a great theme.  Simple and clean, the theme is fully skinned with custom meters, menus and banners. Featuring a hidden today, and your choice of colors (pink, blue, and red) this theme is sure to be a worthy addition to your BlackBerry device. Get it OTA in the forums thread below.

Storm

Containment by R & R Theme Designs

Another tip from the tip line, this theme takes the term "skinned" to new lengths.  If something can be, it will be skinned, making for an exceptionally fluid and continuous experience from screen to screen when using it.  Featuring a full set of brand new custom icons, and a neat app screen featuring "shelves" for the apps to sit on, and access to 26 different applications right from the homescreen, this is a powerhouse of a theme.  A full hidden today allows access to Calendar, Messages and SMS/MMS, and 4 different homescreen views provide some major function to this great-looking theme.  Available for the 95xx series devices running 5.0, on sale in the CB store for $2.50 until June 25.

Curve

Orange Creamsicle by a.leah86

Monday was the first day of summer, so naturally thoughts and tastes turn towards lighter things, and themes are no exception. This bright, fresh theme captures the breezy feel of summer and wraps it up in a nice little package. Perfect for any season, it features a bottom dock of 6 mini icons on the homescreen, which is laid out to maximize wallpaper view. The color runs throughout the theme with touches in the icons and meters, and a hidden today is also included in the homescreen function. Available in many colors OTA from the forums thread below, it's definitely worth the download. 


Contest: I have 50 copies of LeatherBB 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.
