Submit your tips and suggestions to themeroundup[at] for consideration. I hope you enjoy this week's picks so be sure to click on the jump to check them out.

Party Rainbow Lights by Value Apps

Turn your display into a dance floor with this party oriented design from Value Apps. With its multi-colored motif, custom battery and signal meters, and OS 7 icons, this theme is perfect for those seeking subtle changes to their UI. For me, I think the background is what makes it stand out. This one certainly fits the bill for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 9000, 9630/50, 9700/80/88, and 9800 running OS 5 and higher (This theme does not support OS 7 devices).

Sunset 10 by MMMOOO

Known for their fully customized themes, MMMOOO takes a more simple approach with their latest creation. Based on the BlackBerry 10 style, it offers a clean and bold look with many of the familiar elements of the OS including icons, buttons, and fonts. Not only is it refreshing to gaze upon each and every day but navigation is smooth and I like how balanced it is overall with no element out of place. Although, the custom wallpapers aren't bad on the eyes either. Available for $1.99, it is compatible with most legacy devices running OS 4.5 and higher.

Vintage Floral by BB Freaks

Our good friend BB Freaks is back in action with another delightful theme for fans and followers. If you fancy having an old fashioned style on your device then this detailed and beautiful design is for you. Never one to shy away from top to bottom customization, it features all sorts of custom elements including the lockscreen, battery and signal meters, their signature icon set which matches the overall scheme, classic sepia tones and colors, and skinned media player, compass and folder background (for select devices). Did I also mention you can use with your own wallpapers? I happen to love the frame effect included in all of their more recent designs and how the side graphics remain even if you switch backgrounds. This theme supports BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/15/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9650, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 5 and higher. There is nothing better than receiving a premium, high quality theme for FREE so be sure to grab it at the link below.

Chic Bar by CJH

When it comes to theme development, CJH delivers simplicity at its finest. While the overall layout of this one rarely waivers from others in their catalog, it offers something different in terms of functionality and is simply an elegant design from the moment of activation. Users have the ability to change the banner color and toggle the weather slot on and off. Between that and the extra screen real estate, you won't have an issue showcasing your favorite wallpapers. While icons in folders may be hidden on OS 7, it certainly doesn't detract from the overall quality or the ease with which you can navigate the theme. Available for $0.99, it supports BlackBerry 9100/05, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60/70/80, 9650/70, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10/50/60, and 9900/30/81 running OS 6 and higher.

Style of Doodle by Fingerbowl Technologies

To close out this week's roundup, I went with something out of the ordinary. Regardless of my thinking, this interesting style caught my eye. It comes with doodle creature wallpapers, a custom icon set, a hidden today, and will certainly raise eyebrows when showing it to friends or family. All in all I think it's a pretty cute design that can be purchased for $0.99. It is compatible with BlackBerry 8520/30, 9220, 9300/10/20/30/50/60, 9700/80/88/90, 9800/10, and 9900/30/81 running OS 4.6.1 and higher.

BlackBerry theme roundup - June 25, 2013


Well I'm giving up on my Z10 it's NOT worth it in USA and Especially on AT&T. Upgrade not available, 95% apps are from UK, Canada and Dubai they are giving more credibility to Europe. Is time to purchase for iPhone 5.

As sad as it sounds I am definitely not going to even try to convince you to stay. BlackBerry needed to make a better phone than the previous legacy models, improve on the os & add some features instead they sold a half finished os with lots of major features that most of us loyal BlackBerry users need. I love most of what the Q10 is about except no push email, no compressed data, a lot of missing features. It sounds like I need a wifi signal to do a lot of downloading and upgrading or use a pc. Lack of the bridge features is another huge reason BlackBerry is not making users very happy and not notifying us whether or not the playbook is getting updated to BB10. Either make it happen or fold Blackberry! I not going to cry over spilled milk so that's why I'm not upgrading until my 9930 gives out or the Q10 becomes more like a BlackBerry.

What are you guys even talking about!? This is a theme round up post. If you want to complain about BlackBerry go to the forums.
